Brickway Brewery & Distillery
The first combination brewery and distillery in Omaha, Nebraska
Located in the heart of Omaha, Nebraska’s Old Market District, Brickway Brewery and Distillery taps into Omaha’s rich history by handcrafting beer and spirits that are as tried-and-true as the brick paved streets. Each beer is brewed fresh right on the premises according to strict standards, tested recipes, and years of experience. Brewmaster and co-owner Zac Triemert is a local pioneer in the brewing and distilling industry and has been instrumental in bringing not only beer, but distilled spirits, back to the Old Market with the first combination brewery/distillery since before Prohibition.
A Minnesota native, Zac Triemert found his passion for mixing chemistry and brewing while attending college at the University of Wisconsin. He furthered his studies in Scotland, earning a Masters of Science degree in Brewing and Distilling from Edinburg, Scotland’s esteemed Heriot-Watt University. Upon returning to the United States, Zac was determined to change Nebraska’s state law regarding distilleries and was instrumental in the passing of several bills, including the Craft Distilling Bill in 2007. He started Lucky Bucket Brewing Company and The Solas Distillery in 2008, but eventually sold the companies to start his own venture with wife Holly Mulkins. Together, they opened Brickway Brewery and Distillery in 2013.
A relatively new venture in downtown Omaha, Brickway Brewery and Distillery honors the historic Old Market District that’s famed for its cobblestone streets and old brick buildings filled with numerous art galleries, restaurants, and bars. The entity includes a full-production brewery, production distillery, and a craft cocktail tasting room. Once you’ve experienced Brickway, you will see that crafting one-of-a-kind whiskeys and brews is clearly an art form for Zac Triemert, who has been recognized for his excellence in the industry many times, including being named one of the Top 20 Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2011 by Worth Magazine and one of the 40 Big Thinkers Under 40 by Food and Wine.
We hope you enjoy two of Brickway’s most popular beer selections. Cheers!
