Big news for the former Rick’s Caf? Boatyard: The Storz Brewing Co. is moving in.
The Omaha brewer that closed its plant in 1972 is bringing back its beer, which it will serve in the 19,000-square-foot bar and restaurant on the riverfront. The Storz Trophy Room Grill & Brewery will be operated by Yves Menard, owner of the Charlie’s on the Lake restaurant. It is scheduled to open Nov. 15.
The city-owned property has been quiet since January, when Rick’s closed and its owner defaulted on his lease agreement with the city.
