The Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild is proud to bring back the Drink Local Nebraska campaign for a fourth year. The Guild is challenging Nebraskans to consume nothing but Nebraska produced beers, hard ciders, and seltzers throughout the month. We are proud of the delicious brews being put out by our industry AND the economic and social impact they are making in their communities across the state.
