Get Behind the Plough!
Ploughshare Brewing Co. offers a rotation of our beers, handcrafted on site. We have seven year-round brews and four special seasonal beers released quarterly.  The brewery uses traditional brewing methods and styles, and sources only the highest quality ingredients for its beer.  In addition to our own beer, we will always highlight some of our personal favorites from our friends in other breweries.  The brewery also offers wine, gluten-free beer, and non-alcoholic beverages, including fresh French-pressed coffee, sparkling water, and nostalgic sodas. 

To increase your enjoyment of our amazing beer, Ploughshare Brewing Co. offers a delicious seasonal menu of our famous house-made soft pretzels, Ploughman's Platters, our Tailgate Red bratwursts, and daily dessert specials. Our menu offerings are crafted to pair harmoniously with Ploughshare beers. Ingredients are sourced from Nebraska-based producers and farmers, with a focus on sustainable resources and an emphasis on organic ingredients. Everything is made in house from scratch. 

Ploughshare Brewing Co. uses a traditional British pub system.  Sit where you want. Order from the bar.  Stay as long as you like. You won’t find any TVs in our establishment because we are all about enjoying good beer while relaxing with old friends, or perhaps meeting new ones. After all, beer IS the great unifier. Periodically we bring in bands to add to the fun. Check Shindigs for an up-to-date calendar of events.
