Blue Blood Brewing Company


Proudly made with the fines American ingredients

One of the newest breweries on the Lincoln, Nebraska scene, Blue Blood Brewing Company has been proudly producing beers since December of 2011. The small brewery was founded by Brian Podwinski and Jason Goodwin who discovered their passion for crafting beer in 2006. After years of planning, they turned their dream of running a brewery into reality when they opened Blue Blood Brewing Company.

Before the beer, Brian and Jason were Police Officers, working for the Lincoln Police Department. Brian began his career in 2000, but an injury unfortunately forced him to retire from the department in 2006. With extra time on his hands, Brian began brewing beer at home and he was instantly hooked on the new hobby. He spent all of his time researching and studying the art of brewing beer and experimented with different ales, ingredients and formulas. Jason was so impressed with the quality of beers he was making that he joined in on the fun and the two friends began brewing together.

Brian and Jason named the brewery "Blue Blood" to pay homage to their law enforcement backgrounds, which are the heart and soul of this company. They have a strong desire to honor those who serve and protect, and each of their different craft beers are made with this sense of dedication.

Blue Blood currently crafts just four different beers - the ESB (Extra Special Bitter), Big Log Wheat, Happy As Ale (Pale Ale), and Ethan's Stout. Each features a badge number, and is proudly made with the finest American ingredients, including some fantastic hops grown right in Nebraska. While ingredients from Europe and other reaches of the world could be used, these brewers believe the perfect ingredients for Blue Blood's beer can be found right at home!

We hope you enjoy these features from Blue Blood, and cheers to those who serve and protect us each and every day!
