A Nebraska winery/brewery has struck a deal with a hometown comedian to market Git-R-Done beer.
Dan Whitney, the guy who has made Larry the Cable Guy famous, grew up in Pawnee City, where Mike and Sharon Schilling operate SchillingBridge Winery & MicroBrewery.
Upstream Brewing in Omaha will brew the beer while SchillingBridge completes its brewery. When SchillingBridge opened in November 2005, it became the first business in Nebraska to combine a winery with a microbrewery. Its first five beer styles have been contract brewed at Upstream.
Mike Schilling and Upstream brewer Zac Triemert developed the beer as an American light lager, a style similar to the most mass-market beers in the United States. But Triemert said the beer has a “little more flavor and body” than beers produced by corporate breweries.”
Pawnee City is located about 75 miles southeast of Lincoln.
