After a 41-year absence, Storz beer was on tap again Sunday at the St. Stanislaus Catholic Church Polish Festival in Omaha.
They had 10 kegs at 40th and J streets and two were quickly gone. "It's fantastic, it goes down really smooth,” said Doug Zbylut. “We're glad to see it come back!"
The brews (lager, wheat, amber ale and pale ale) will also be served Thursday through next Sunday at the Cox Classic golf tournament at Champions Run and next Saturday at the Great Nebraska Beer Fest at Shadow Lake Towne Center in Papillion.
Storz Brewing Company, in a re-launch of the legendary Omaha brewing giant’s brand, announced last week it will be available exclusively throughout Nebraska under an agreement with five Anheuser-Busch distributors.
It also announced an agreement to assume the lease of the vacant Rick’s Café Boatyard along Omaha's riverfront. Storz will renovate the 19,000-square-foot bar and restaurant and rename it the Storz Trophy Room Grill & Brewery. The restaurant is scheduled to open November 15th and will be operated by Yves Menard, who owns Charlie’s on the Lake restaurant.
Storz will soon announce the availability of its beers at select bars, pubs and restaurants.
