The Railroaders Brew Club is Omaha's premier homebrew club!

From the RRBC Founder, Brian Schlueter:

Learn and experience the art of home brewing… Whether you’re a first time brewer or seasoned brewer, there are always new things to learn…

Our meetings encourage the fellowship of brewing, tasting and developing our favorite home brew! We have fun judging our beers and keep our talents sharp. Usually every month we have a tasting contest. We also participate with the local breweries in brew-fests and events throughout the year.


It’s all about Beer!


We host and participate in upwards of 20 events each year.

Our monthly club sponsored events are themed to a particular style of beer chosen well in advance so our members can plan and brew accordingly. We award prizes based on the scoresheets filled out by our taste testers (club members and anyone else who wants to taste our brew) consisting of (at minimum) a $20 gift certificate to Cornhusker Beverage, our official sponsor homebrew supply store in Omaha.

We also have a Best Damn Beer competition at each monthly open to everyone (non-club members too!) with no style restrictions. Though we don't offer a physical prize to the winner of the BDB category, most winners are pleased to know they brewed the beer most enjoyed by the crowd that night. :P

Additionally, we have several group brewing events, or "Patio Brew Days" each year to bring our brewers together to share in the fun of creating the malty goodness we enjoy, as well as share techniques, tips, and tales.

During our club brewing events we also brew larger (20 gallon) batches of brew based on recipes created by ingredients our brewers contribute to the club. This series of beers is called our "Golden Spike" series and is commonly used to pour for our large public tasting events.

Speaking of public tasting events, the RRBC also participates in many events during the year to include: Extreme Beerfest, the Great Nebraska Beerfest, and many more.

  • Relocating to Omaha

    I may be moving to Omaha. Hoping to find an active brewing club or at least a few brewing buddies and a good LHBS. Any tips? Thanks!!!

  • New brewer from Omaha

    I've been doing a lot of research on brewing in the past and this forum always comes up in a google search, so I figured it was time to register! Just picked up my first equipment kit in October af
