Exciting beer choices and excellent food

Was here for a company holiday party. The food was seriously great. Appetizers were presented nicely and they were really tasty. The only issue I had was that the management had perhaps understaffed out group. There were many people who were forgotten about with their drink orders. I don't necessarily blame the staff because they were really working hard but... More

Carolyn was our Server and did an great job.... Excellent selection of Brews and food! Started with the Calamari and for an inland City, it was great! They had a Duck chowder that was to die for, the blackened Burgers were very good, along with Blue Cheese....Onion and Cucumber salad is a must!

Be sure to notice the playing cards on the ceiling from a magician who has lifted wrist watches while you watch his card tricks

The Upstream Brewing Company is in the Old Market area and is in a nice old warehouse type building. With that setting comes noise which was to be expected. The craft beers were good but the menu and dining was a bit disappointing to me. They had some enticing specials drawn up on a chalkboard by the check-in area but... More

Went there with a large group and had a super experience! The food was very good and our server was exceptional! The flight of brews were all very yummy too! For our large group the total bill was suprisingly cheap!

I am a Upstream pretty regularly for business functions - it is always good. Relaxed atmosphere, very good food, and they were brewing their own beer before it was cool. :-)

The atmosphere at this location is great! Fun for couples, families, or larger groups. Our favorite part of our meal was the magician that came to our table to entertain us! He showed three great tricks-what a fun ending to the night! He told us that he entertains on Tuesday and Thursday nights. We would go back just for him!... More

Food was great, beer was great. Root beer was ok. We were able to watch the Creighton basketball game on one of the TV's. Our servers were attentive. Cant wait to go back in the spring when we can sit outside.
