Tour Benson Like a Renegade

Colorado’s Renegade Brewing Company is launching their brand in Omaha this week. They will be celebrating with Benson First Fridays. The event begins at 5pm at Beercade where Renegade representatives will hand out punch cards to start the evening and continues at St. Andrew’s at 6pm, Reverb at 7, Jake’s at 8, Krug park at 9, and 1912 at 10. You will receive a punch on your card for each bar you purchase a Renegade beer at. At the end of the night, your full punch card can be redeemed for prizes! Prizes for drinking beer? This sounds like the start of a beautiful weekend!
