Before I left, I had sampled 5 of their beers and ordered 2 of them. All of them were excellent. You can't go wrong here. The food menu is limited, but the Diner down sandwich with side salad was incredible! It is clear that the...More

Nice sometimes to go to a bar with no TV's. There was an old school dart board and very nice bartenders. Beers on tap are made in-house and are very good. Food good, though not many choices, but they do try to keep things simple....More

Hi kswanny, thanks for stopping into our establishment. We operate the Taproom on what we call "the British pub system," where you order at the bar and sit where you like. Admittedly it takes some getting used to. Thanks for your feedback. Cheers!

Fun spot in downtown Lincoln. Stopped during a 4000 mile cross country bike trip. Great beer selection and atmosphere. Staff was super. Food looked great (though we didn't eat a meal). Nice crowd.

We shared a 4-beer taster tray, then got a couple of pretzels and two slices of carrot cake to go, since we had to return a rental car to Omaha and didn't have time to eat at the brewpub. The beers were delicious, and so...More

Atmosphere, beer, and food these are three of my favorite things. This place has it all...have the St. Monica's Stout and The Country Fair, any other choice is irrelevant.

Went there for a meeting in the upstairs room. Pretty loud, but adequate space. The beer was good, local brew and the soup was very good. Beer selection is limited to their own, but it was good.

I stopped in for a beer with my son, and had one of their signature soft pretzels. It was great! My son has eaten here a few times and loved it. I look forward to going back for a meal myself!

Ploughshare Brewing Co. offers a rotation of our hand-crafted beers on 12 taps. We brew our own selection of house ales and lagers, and carry cider, GF, and NA options. The brewery also offers wine and non-alcoholic beverages, including fresh French pressed coffee and nostalgic sodas. The brewery uses traditional brewing methods and styles, and sources only the highest quality ingredients for its beer. In addition to serving amazing beer, Ploughshare Brewing offers delicious snacks such as soft pretzels, authentic brats, Ploughman's Platters, and seasonal soups and desserts. Many 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 uses a 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 with old friends, or perhaps meeting new ones. After all, beer is the great unifier. Cheers!
