P J's
(402) 463-9066
117 N Lincoln Ave
Hastings, NE
Description
P J's - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, P J's kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

2205 Osborne Dr E
Hastings, NE
Description
Brass Ring - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Brass Ring is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

1400 W 18th St
Hastings, NE

Illusions, located at [Address], has a smooth and chill vibe. It's not the kind of place where you'll be dancing on tables, but it's no dive bar, either. A good mix of laid-back décor and casual comfort. -Review of Illusions

Blue Hill Tavern

521 W Gage St

414 W 2nd St
Hastings, NE

Reno Bar - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Reno Bar fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination. Not the ideal spot for fabulous, drunken debauchery, but it's a good as place as any to pre-drink.

Pit Stop

623 W 1st St
Hastings, NE

Second Street Slammer
(402) 463-9220
2315 W 2nd St
Hastings, NE
Description
Second Street Slammer - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Second Street Slammer is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

105 N Alexander Ave
Clay Center, NE
Description
Fuzzy's Place - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Fuzzy's Place is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.

How do they make beer, wine and liquor?

By Russ Cobbe

It's a good question and one you rarely think about on the way to the store to pick up a bottle or two of alcohol. They all involve some sort of fermenting process, which changes sugars in the ingredients into alcohol.

Beer

The basic ingredients are malted barley, yeast, water and sometimes other grains are added. Hops for example are used to make the resulting brew have a bitter flavor. Barley grain is turned into a malt by soaking it in water and allowing the grains to start germinating. The grains are then dried in a kiln, which stops the germination and voila you have malted barley. The malt is ground up and mashed with hot water, which is then boiled, the result is called wort. Next comes the fermentation process which starts with cooling down of the wort and the adding of yeast. The yeast turns the natural sugars that exist in the grain into alcohol over a period of time. The end result of course is beer.

Wine

The most important aspect of wine making is deciding when to pick the grapes from the vine. Conditions must be just right for the variety being used and the picking must be done quickly. Stems are removed from the grapes after picking and the skins are generally left on for at least 24 hours. The grapes are pressed to extract the juice from the grape. This juice is allowed to settle to remove any bits of skin. Yeast is added which turns the sugars in the grape juice to alcohol and carbon dioxide. There are specialized yeast cultures that act differently on the grape juice to provide different characteristics. The resulting wine is left so the yeast settles and the wine is drawn off, this can happen multiple times until the wine is clear. The wine is cold stabilized which precipitate white
crystals that are using in making tarter sauce. Finally the wine is filtered and bottled.

Liquor/Spirits

Spirits such as Rum, Vodka, Gin and Whiskey have a much higher alcohol percentage than wine o...
