Nebraska craft brewers take part in Husker Harvest Days

By  | 

GRAND ISLAND, Neb., If you're a true beer fan you have one more day to try some flavorful brews at Husker Harvest Days.

About 15 beers are on tap at Syngenta Square, and all of them are made by state craft brewers.

The vice-president of the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild says taking part in such a big event helps brewers get their product out to people who normally may not be able to try it because they don't live closely.

"If you're a brewery out in Broken Bow, like Kinkaiders for example, they're way of the beating path. You have to go out of your way to find them, but once you get there you're hooked," said Jim Englebart, vice-president of the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild.

Brewers like Prairie Pride, Kinkaiders and First Street Brewing Company have 30 kegs for Husker Harvest Days. They want to sell all of that and make a profit of about $5 thousand.

On Thursday beer will be on tap from 11 a.m to 4 p.m.
