And along the way, they just happened to garner the attention of a former president, who, rumor has it, lists their IPA as his favorite brew.

Brewery Spotlight: Blue Blood Brewing Company

Posted by Crystal Wiebe on

  Cop-brewed beer in a robber’s hideout. A century and a half ago, Jesse James used a cave in Eastern Nebraska as one of his hideouts. Fast forward to the present. The cave, called appropriately enough as Robber’s Cave, is now the home of a brewing company with roots in law enforcement. Old Jesse must be rolling in his grave. If he wasn’t, he’d pop right on up and head over to Blue Blood Brewing Company for a pint of their fantastic beer. Founded in December 2011 by a couple of guys with a love for craft beer, including former...
