The $18 bottle that only the most serious Omaha beer fans know about

A few nights before New Year's, a certain reporter found himself perusing the cramped aisles of the midtown brew store Beertopia when in walked a tall man with a dark beard wearing a bright yellow jacket.
The man inquired about a particular beer, sending a clerk into a storage room for what turned out to be a single 22 ounce bottle (a “bomber,” to use the parlance) in such limited supply that Beertopia imposed a one-per-customer limit.
