Your new favorite Harvest Ale Festival is coming on October 13th

The Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild, Nebraska Hop Program and Midwest Hop Producers present the inaugural Nebraska Harvest Ale Festival.

 The Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild, Nebraska Extension Hop Program and Midwest Hop Producers are thrilled to announce a new and exciting event that promotes community and the hop growing and craft brewing industries.  The Harvest Ale Festival will take place on Saturday, October 13th at Midwest Hop Producers in Plattsmouth, Nebraska and will celebrate local hops and local beer with food, beer tastings, fall activities and music.

While we might be drenched in sweat under the summer sun busily preparing for harvest this fall, we can look forward to fall days with a nip in the air, crisp beers with fresh hop aromas, and gatherings with friends as the sun goes down. This unique outdoor festival will feature tastings of fresh hopped and harvest styled brews highlighting local hop and craft brew production in Nebraska, local food trucks, scenic views of the largest hop yard in Nebraska, and an afternoon you won’t forget among friends.

This event will bring people from all over the Midwest together and a portion of the proceeds from the event will be going to support the efforts of the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild and the Nebraska Hop Program’s research and extension hop yard.  Both of these organizations are working hard to better the craft brewing industry in the state!

The following is an Editorial from:

Connie Manzer, Editor Springfield Nebraska Wednesday Community Newsletter


“I’m bored!” We’ve all said it at one time or another. Not just your kids, too. I am just as guilty. My theory is, we just need to be creative.

There’s a lot going on in and around the Springfield area. This newsletter includes events happening in our local community. For many of the folks who work hard to organize an event, your attendance is the most important aspect of their efforts. Most happenings are manned by volunteers who give of their time to coordinate and/or raise funds for their organization. They are hoping for the best outcome which is a high attendance number. Success!

Local businesses keep our small towns vibrant. Wander into the shops in Springfield, especially if you need something to do. Visit with the owners and take some time to get to know them. You don’t always need to make a purchase but when the time comes you’ll have a good idea of what that business has to offer. Robin at Robin’s Nest remembers my granddaughter from Colorado and always asks about her. Nobody at Walmart ever asks about my grandchildren.

Sporting events: You don’t need to have a kid in school to attend a sports event at the high school. If you love baseball in June and July head up to Buffalo Park to catch a ball game. In the Spring or Fall, drive over to the Soccer Complex for a soccer game.

School events: Want to put a smile on your face? Go to an elementary school music program or a high school play. What an entertaining evening!

The Library has not only books but a whole list of programs to attend. Check it out. Visit with the friendly staff. (It’s a shameless plug, folks!)

You will find lots do by checking out fundraisers at our local churches, especially for foodies. Soup Suppers, Wild Feed Game, Fish Fries – My Oh My!

Thanks to the City of Springfield for hosting Do the Trail, Beat the Heat, and the Community Tree Lighting ceremony. We have special events hosted by our city.

Visit our three Parks. Walk the trails, have a picnic, play Frisbee Golf, and in the summer take the family to the Splash Pad.

Celebrate our town at Springfield Days: Two days of fun for the whole family the second weekend in June.

These a just a few suggestions of attending local events, visiting area businesses, and getting involved with the community. Keeping it local not only keeps our town vibrant, we can also personally experience and explore life in the City of Springfield. Be happier for it. It’s the Good Life!
