Join the Museum of Nebraska Art, Kearney, at Scratchtown Brewing Company in Ord, NE, where participants can explore the creative fusion of art and beer. Discover the artistry behind crafting beer while unleashing your inner artist using this unique medium. Although it’s a picky, delicate medium, it mostly paints like watercolors creating a sepia toned piece of art, most importantly however, you don’t have to be a beer enthusiast to savor the experience of painting with beer.

During the event, participants will explore the technique of beer painting. Upon registration, you can choose your skill level:

  • Pilsner: Your chosen subject will be lightly penciled onto the watercolor paper as a guide.
  • Lager: You’ll receive a reference image to aid your artistic expression.
  • Stout: No reference image required—let your creativity flow freely! 

To register or questions, please contact the Museum at 308-865-8559.

(Ord, NE) – Scratchtown Brewing Company is pleased to announce that Black Eye Imperial Porter brought home silver in the imperial porter category at the US Open Beer Championship.

The annual U.S. Open Beer Competition returned to its normal schedule at its new event center in Oxford, Ohio following two years of pandemic-related schedule changes. Breweries sent more than 9,000 brews representing over 150 styles of beer to be judged, along with home brews that have medaled at the 2021 American Homebrew Association’s national competition.

Black Eye Imperial Porter has medaled either gold or silver in the beer style category at the US Open since the style category’s inception in 2015, making it eight years in a row. Kros Strain Brewing (Omaha), Site-1 Brewing (Omaha), and Zipline Brewing (Lincoln) joined SBC in a small cadre of Nebraska brewers to bring home hardware.

(Ord, NE) – During the weekend of March 4-6th, professional brewers and judges from as far away as Switzerland descended upon Central Oregon to judge over 2,700 entries in the 2022 Best of Craft Beer Awards competition.

Breweries of all sizes sent over 16,000 containers of their finest product for evaluation across 56 categories.

Judging took place during a 3-day, six session period by over 100 of the most qualified international judges. They awarded 165 gold, silver, and bronze medals to 129 brewery locations around the world. Scratchtown Brewing Company (SBC) won gold in the Cascadian Dark Ale category for Raven Twins Black IPA.

SBC is the only Nebraska brewery to bring home hardware in 2022. Cascadian Dark Ales were born in the Pacific Northwest, making the victory even sweeter for the small town Great Plains brewery. Raven Twins IPA has now medaled thrice in the US Open Beer Championship (Oxford, OH), and twice in the Best of Craft Beer Awards, making it the second most awarded beer at the brewery.
