Always trust a brewery that has an old man in lederhosen on the front page of their website. This is a man that is clearly a seasoned professional when it comes to beer. They have four locations in Lincoln, Omaha, Grand Island, and Broken Bow, so you have plenty of options to find good beer. And the beer sounds very good. They take their name from a Kinkaider, which is described as “A settler on free land in NE under terms of the Kinkaid Act in 1904 which allowed each settler 640 acres upon payment of a filing fee of $14.”
Dan the Wiser – 4.3% ABV, 20 IBU - Dan The Wiser is a German style ale that has some mild fruit like flavors and aroma. An all-around great beer to be enjoyed just about anywhere, anytime. Dan likes to pour himself one after a dusty ride on his iron steed.
Herd Law Honey – 4.8% ABV, 22 IBU - A beautiful golden American wheat ale dosed with honey harvested from hives right off the farm. The spent grains fed to the cattle next to the hives. A fantastic drinking experience that is farm fresh and full circle.
Snow Beast – 7% ABV, 31 IBU - Christmas in a glass! A creamy ale with strong vanilla flavors and aromas. It finishes with a warmth from the alcohol as well as the cinnamon. This is a surprisingly easy drinking beer and perfect for the winter cold.
Devil’s Gap – 4.7% ABV, 10 IBU - Our award winning jalapeno ale gives you an intense jalapeno flavor with a slightly heated finish and aroma. The perfection in this beer will please both heat seekers and flavor chasers. The beer that truly has something for everyone to enjoy.
