This American Lager was brewed in collaboration with the Nebraska Alumni Association (two of Zipline’s founders are University of Nebraska alumni) for the first time back in 2021, and its success led it to become a year-round offering. Named after the traditional fight song Dear Old Nebraska U, this brew presents a bright golden hue with good clarity, topped by a spritely head of white foam. On the nose, look for some light floral, citric, and herbal hop notes overlaying a clean, lightly bready malt undercurrent. Those malty notes form a tasty central core in the flavor, offering notes of mild caramelization and pleasant honey malt. Hops come forth a little more here than in the aroma, delivering floral and citric touches along with a decent bite that melds with the lively carbonation and characteristic lager crispness to keep this brew dry and satisfying. For pairing options, pretty much any gameday staples will work well here, so let’s go tailgating with grilled hotdogs, brats, burgers, and ribs. And, some grilled corn on the cob too, of course. Cheers!

Zipline Brewing Company in Lincoln, Nebraska first started production back in 2012, focused on making high-quality beers and building up a sustainable community around those beers that the brewery would be able to support. While the brewery started with just one of their three brewery founders, Marcus Powers, as the company’s lone employee, in just a few years Zipline grew to about 40 employees.

After their opening, the brewery quickly grew to the full capacity of their production system, and they decided to respond to that constraint by focusing on their nearby markets and adding retail locations. Zipline’s first taproom opened up in 2013 adjacent to their brewery in Lincoln, and they opened the Zipline Beer Hall in November 2016, the latter also in Lincoln, but focusing more on a beer-garden vibe. The brewery’s third taproom opened in summer 2017, in northern downtown Omaha, with more of an urban industrial vibe, and Zipline opened their Culture Lab facility (focusing on mixed-fermentation beers and wild projects) there in February of 2019. For good measure, Zipline’s fourth taproom, the Zipline Beer Lounge, opened in Omaha in summer of 2019.

Currently, Zipline produces a variety of year-round brews alongside a wide array of seasonal, small-batch, and barrel-aged beers, including a few that we’ve featured in our Rare Beer Club, such as their delicious MAAANGO! IPA. For more info on the brewery and their multiple locations in Nebraska, visit ziplinebrewing.com.
