Attack of the 50 Foot Brunette Brewed by Nebraska Brewing in Papillion, Nebraska

Nebraska Brewing Company's Attack of the 50 Foot Brunette is a barrel- aged collaborative effort with New Holland Brewing out of Holland, Michigan. As part of New Holland’s first attendance at this year’s Great Nebraska Beer Fest, New Holland owner, Fred Bueltmann contacted Nebraska Brewing owner Paul Kavulak and suggested a collaboration centering around the use of barrels from within New Holland’s Artisan Spirits division. An exchange of beers and spirits was immediate and found a wonderful marriage between one of Nebraska Brewing’s Imperial Brown Ales and barrels used to age New Holland’s Zeppelin Bend Whiskey.

The beer brewed by Nebraska Brewing Company is a much larger version of its Brunette Nut Brown Ale, which drives it into the Imperial Brown Ale style. The aptly named "Attack of the 50 Foot Brunette" plays to the massive stature of what is usually a very sessionable Brown Ale. The barrels from New Holland are unique in that these heavy char new American oak barrels were used to age the Artisan Spirits’ Zeppelin Bend Straight Malt Whiskey. Notes of vanilla and clove remain from the slightly caramelized spirit, which work beautifully when paired with the correct beer.


Paul Kavulak, President of Nebraska Brewing Company stated: “We were thrilled Fred reached out to propose a collaboration to mark their first ever attendance at this year’s Great Nebraska Beer Fest!” Kavulak added, “We have always loved New Holland's beers and what Fred and his team are doing. To be offered the chance to work together on a barrel aged beer was perfect for us. We’re beyond excited to marry up our barrel aging program with their Artisan Spirits in a way that will produce something truly creative and flavorful." Fred Bueltmann, added: “We love sharing beers and ideas with like-minded creative people." Bueltmann, aka "The Beervangelist" continued, “This idea is born from a long standing relationship and mutual admiration between our companies. It’s a fun celebration of flavor, camaraderie, brewing and distilling. We look forward to tasting it and meeting everyone we can in the great state of Nebraska."

Nebraska Brewing Brewers
Paul Kavulak and Tyson Arp round out the brewing lineup and have come together to build a broad beer portfolio complete with Brewer's Choice specials that will keep you coming back for more. As brewers go, they tend to be incredibly passionate about their craft. Nebraska Brewing Company is fortunate to have two brewers with the fire burning in their souls.

Paul has been brewing since 1992, after he and one of his buddies had a discussion on brewing beer at home. Paul began a journey that would span more than a decade and expose him to the incredible world of diversity, tastes, and other individuals that enjoyed this art as much as he did. Over the course of time, Paul has won a number of awards at the amateur level and even had one of his recipes on tap at a local brewpub. Paul is a volunteer beer judge whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Tyson has what some call a brewing affliction. He drove his hobby so hard that it went from kitchen stovetop to brewhouse in zero to 60 fashion. Incrediby detailed, he possesses an invaluable knack for solving the most difficult brewing problems. It really does an injustice to Tyson to say that he's the junior guy in the group, so let's just say that he's an awesome member of a tremendous brewing team. (anything else would go to his head and our brewhouse door isn't that big)

Paul and Tyson welcome the opportunity to discuss their beer passions with others who share an appreciation for everything that craft beer has to offer. If you've got a comment or suggestion, don't hold back - they'd love to hear from you!
