Robbers Cave Series

Would you believe it's been a hideout for Jesse James, a sacred temple for Pawnee Indians and even the site of an Old West-style duel? Maybe. Maybe not. But one thing is certain. Robbers Cave was used to lager beer made by Pioneer Brewery, the first operation of its kind in Lincoln, Neb., founded in 1869. 

More than a century later, we've restored the cave to its true calling. Inspired by the wild legends of this Nebraska landmark, the Robbers Cave Series is home to a unique, ever-changing lineup of beers. 

Sip. Enjoy. Savor.

  Justifiable Hopicide    ABV: 6.7% IBU: 52   When your Cellarman goes on an east coast IPA bender and starts killing hops like a raged mobster in a territory war, well…you better think quick on how to make a hopicide like that justifiable. We did so by disposing of the hop remains in a super juicy, hazy IPA. When you have Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe hop juice on your hands. You rinse it off with wort, dry it up with oats, and bring forward an explosion of grapefruit, mango, lemongrass and orange peel! One lip smacking drink of this IPA and you too will end up with a quick trigger finger, an east coast accent, and a propensity for green chowda!

  Pineapple Assassin    ABV: 5.9% IBU: 30   When your brewer goes on a Mexican vacation and starts pounding Tepache’s like he’s punishing his liver for crimes against humanity, you end up with aone serious moral dilema…Keep on slaying with your pinky out until death, or take up assassinating pineapples for the betterment of the beer society?  Luckily, our brewer chose the latter and cut this sweet tropical drink down into a Pale Ale that screams of pineapple sweetness wrapped in brown sugar and cinnamon with a lingering, juicy, citrus hop profile. Thanks to his sacrifice, you too can now punish pineapples in the name of beer!

  Hop Abduction    ABV: 7.2% IBU: 43   Let’s face it, sometimes things just get weird. For us it happened when we learned the hops we needed for our next beer were abducted by aliens. Our brewer wasted no time and jumped into action, going after them like Buck Rogers! Unfortunately, he’s now curled up in the corner of the brewery in the fetal position rocking back and forth like a child. So, for the sake of our brewer and his sanity we hope you enjoy this juicy IPA of Mosaic, Enigma, and Hallertau Blanc hops that glows with an orange hue; tasting of tropical fruit, rockmelon and citrus before a mild eartly finish of lemongrass.

  Stealing Hendrik-Available in cans and on draught Mid October    ABV: 9.0 IBU: 26   As a craft brewery, if you tip your hat to tradition, you can’t help but pay homage to Monastic Belgian beers. In our case we wanted to brew a Belgian-Style Tripel that would make you think we stole the soul of Hendrik Verlinden himself…or at least maybe his recipe. This ale’s golden hue and fruity aromatics will have you salivating as mild spice notes of clobe and pepper emerge before a sweet, grainy, dry finish leaves a tickle of alcohol in the back of your throat . Don’t blame us if you decide to donate all your worldly possessions and start donning a wool tunic with a hood, its just ole Hendrik’s stolen soul shining through.
