Two sides in beer battle renew efforts to settle how Nebraska's craft brews are distributed.
Aaron Goldfarb, writer for Esquire, Playboy, The Daily Beast, PUNCH, First We Feast, Serious Eats, Draft Magazine writes this article in the online feature article for October:
"Formerly employed at the U.S. Senate offices in Washington, D.C., a Mr. Beer kit gift from his wife Michelle (on Valentine’s Day if we’re being honest) led to him falling in love with the hobby.
“Brewing on the stove in our one-bedroom apartment was the beginning of the unforeseen start of our future,” she explains. “That one brew lead to him brewing a beer for our wedding. Looking back I can only imagine how it tasted.”
From there, he started going to the D.C. Homebrewers club and eventually switching to his own jerry-rigged homebrew kit which he used on the driveway of their Maryland townhouse “
The neighbors were quite concerned with the safety of ‘what we were up to,” Michelle jokes. Eventually he took a side-job at 3 Star Brewing while taking a yearlong online brewing program from Siebel. Homesick after six years in D.C., the Strains moved back to Omaha where Scott quickly became a cellarman then brewer at Nebraska Brewing Co.
Along with fellow co-worker Bobby Kros, who had been a mechanical engineer at a nuclear power company, they decided to create Kros Strain in January of 2017. Today it’s a 10,000 square foot, 15 barrel system. Their handsomely-labeled beers include such flagships as Helles Creek, an easy-sipping lager, and Fairy Nectar, an easy-drinking IPA. The Strains still keep that little Mr. Beer keg as a memento.
