About Us

Our primary mission is to brew superior craft beer for patrons in Seward and throughout the Midwest. A secondary mission is to have a postitive influence economically in the Seward area.

Bottle Rocket Boys

In 2014, Gerald Homp had the idea to start a brewery in his home town of Seward, Nebraska. He approached Jason Berry and Ryan Koch about helping him as Vice President and Brew Master. The Bottle Rocket Boys were formed.


In the following year they created business plans, found property and submitted the paperwork to the TTB and NLCC. On October 23rd of 2015 they openned the doors to Bottle Rocket Brewing Company.


Bottle Rocket Brewing Company Location

Our historic grain mill building was originally built in the 1940's. It was built as a seed grain cleaning and processing mill. In the 1980's it was turned into a flower shop that functioned until the brewery bought it in 2014. The original mill building features the original grain elevators, grain hoppers and Fairbanks-Morse scale. We added an event space onto the back side of the building and created a beer garden on the front side. Making a one of a kind building and location for drinking great craft beer.
