PintNine Brewery Company
The Pint Nine Story starts back in Christmas of 2005 when Jimi Watson, head brewer & founder received a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas. Within 6 months, he knew what he wanted to do when he grew up. He began taking Physics & Chemistry classes so that he could attend the Master Brewing Program at UC Davis in California. He graduated in 2009. He worked for Upstream out west as the head brewer for a couple years. He then worked for three years at Empyrean in Lincoln Nebraska. He returned to Omaha to work as head brewer of Upstream downtown. In 2013 he began working on a business plan of his own to open a brewery. The next few years led him to the amazing team and family we now call Pint Nine Brewing Company! The name Pint Nine is a nod to all the great beers that Jimi used to drink that were ½ liters or 16.9 ounces.
We are a production facility first, and many of our beers go to market in kegs. However, we do have our own taproom with events, special releases and an ever increasing number of rotating beers. We opened our doors on June 15th 2017, with our Grand Opening that was on September 9th, 2017.
Pint Nine believes in giving back to the community that supports us and continues to find ways to make that a focus of the taproom.
At Pint Nine, we are committed to Tradition and innovation. We stand on the tradition of brewers before us, to create aroma driven American ales and complex Belgium beers. We believe in fine German lagers and English session ales. Our brewers crave the innovation of one-off batches and Barrel aging. Our beers are highly fermentable and highly digestible, while being scientifically sound and artfully executed. At Pint Nine, quality is an ingredient and we hope our customers enjoy them as much as we do!
