Mediterranean Bistro and Wine Bar : Hummus is Yummus

Living on the southern coast of Turkey for a couple years made me a bit of a snob when it comes to Mediterranean food back here in the States. I often find myself making smarmy comments along the lines of, “Oh, you think this is hummus? Too bad you can’t taste the hummus I ate when I lived on the southern coast of Turkey for a couple years.”

I know, I know – it’s annoying.

You can understand my trepidation about trying out the Mediterranean Bistro and Wine Bar, because after all, not only was I worried that I would be disappointed by the food but I was also a little afraid I might go into smarmy mode. That’s why I went with my friend Sara; she had recommended this place and hasn’t...

Stout It Out

Oh, the dark, mysterious stout. Some identify it as the base of a notoriously unwise cocktail known as the Irish car bomb. As if that’s not a bad enough impression, stouts — in particular dryer, Irish stouts like Guinness — picked up the nickname “liquid bread” somewhere along the line, making it sound like the beer would more likely lead to a nap than to a lively conversation.

The stout is a “misunderstood style,” according to Zac Triemert, Brewmaster at the recently opened Borgata Brewery & Distillery in the Old Market. The big differentiator between stouts and other styles is that it uses roasted barley or malt hence the darker color. “People see it as typically being heavy, high in...

Building Community with Beer: The Impact of Omaha Beer Week

A great man once said, “There is always room for more beer.” In Omaha, it seems as though every spare nook and cranny are being filled with breweries. Craft beer demand in our city is so high, that our own Omaha Beer Week event has become a national destination for many who long for a pint of Bourbon County without Chicago prices.

Things are changing in the beer scene here in Omaha, and it is incredibly exciting.

Said great man is Chris Bettini, internationally recognized beer aficionado, Marketing chair of Omaha Beer Week, and the monk at most Crescent Moon beer events.

“Omaha Beer Week spawned out of a discussion between Dustin Boushon, the owner of Krug Park, and Bill Baburek,...
