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


Pie, Me Oh My, I Love Pie! Lyrics from The Pie Song in the film Michael completely express my feelings about pie. Our library’s Pie Contest has been such a conversation starter. So many people love to talk about their favorite pies, recipes, and family members who bake the best pies.

In my opinion, memories of pie are priceless: Grandma’s rhubarb pie, Mom’s apple pie and one of the best pie’s I ever ate, a pineapple cream. Yum! Or is it the time when Mom baked her famous apple pie and I had to leave for home because a storm was coming. My not- so- nice brother posted a photo of his pie ala mode on Facebook. I still need to get him back for that!

In Springfield, it is widely believed the Methodist Church ladies are some of the very best pie bakers in the entire county or is it all of Nebraska? Anyone remembering the Highway 50 Café, will talk about the homemade pie, baked daily. Oh, the coconut cream!

Do really good pie bakers have a magic touch or a magic oven? How do they do it? Most will share their best crust or filling recipe. My ability to recreate the Mom’s apple pie does not have the same results.

Mix shortening or butter, flour, salt, and water together for the crust. It can’t be too hard! Wrong, wrong, wrong! Unless you are Martha Stewart most first attempts (at least in my experience), turn into a mess of pie crust pieces. Too dry, too tough, not flaky at all. Help!

Runny fruit pies, meringues that flop, and the cream pie filling that just won’t gel are the nemesis of pie bakers. If you have ever attempted to bake a pie, you’ve been there!

So why do we keep trying? Because someday, we hope to finally bake that prize- winning pie. Not literally, but the one your family, friends, or colleagues gush over and devour.

A homemade pie is a thing of beauty. One to share with others, savor, and create memories! Remember, friends, it’s the simple things in life and it’s worth it.

Pie, Pie, Me Oh My, We All love Pie!
