By  | 

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. -- Thursday night, many gathered at the Pavilion at Wild West Arena for the NEBRASKAland DAYS 'Taps and Tunes' event.

Beer, wine and even whiskey were offered to attendees, and the best part, everything was made by Nebraskan brewers.

In the Pavillon, breweries from across the state lined up with samples of their products.

From IPA's to peanut butter beer, the options were endless.

Some distributors made their 'Taps and Tunes' debut tonight, others were returning for the festival.

"I'm with Hanging Horseshoe Brewery out of Imperial, Nebraska. We've been open just a short while, and we're trying to get our name out and about. We want to start to distributing our beer around the state, so that's why we're here. Opening up a brewery in a small town, we didn't know how it would go over, but the community support has been really great," Steve Schilke.

Zipline Brewing Co., PALS Brewing Co., and Hanging Horseshoe Brewery Co., were just a few distributors in attendance.

Wine and whiskey were also available for attendees to taste.
