Not anybody at all actually. Most people I brew with are more 144th and maple area or further west/south. I've been brewing in my garage the last few batches though. Are you a part of any homebrew clubs?

Come to some railroaders meetings. We hold monthly meetings/competitions that offer free beer and free critiques for beer brought it. http://www.railroadersbrewclub.com/

Our next meeting is at the Lauter Tun on the 31st. Come out, meet some people, and drink some beer.

Yeah, I've been there quite a bit. Nice atmosphere, good variety of beers. If you have some beer, feel free to bring a 6 pack for our best damn beer competition as you don't need to be a member to enter into it. No prizes for it, but good way to get some feedback. I might have a beer there for BDB but I'm not sure yet.

West Omaha here...168th and Maple area. No club affiliation yet, but I've met several of the Railroaders who are great people. Lots of good folks in the other clubs as well. AG brewing for 3 years or so...about 60 batches.

I really enjoy pouring at the beer festivals such as the Homebrewers Fest, Holiday Beerfest, etc... Really neat events here in Omaha. Great opportunity to share with folks who really appreciate good beer. You're giving away an entire batch at each one, though, so that does get a little old after awhile.

I understand the whole giving away a full batch thing. It does get old after awhile. I'll be pouring two batches for extreme beer fest coming up and another batch is dedicated to the Empyrean beer quest competition.

It doesn't really get old for me, but it sure as heck does get costly!!! I poured at eight or so events last year and have 13 scheduled for this year. The feedback is well worth it to me, but my wallet still hates me.
