Restoration

Through careful renovation our taproom has recaptured many of the original architectural elements of an early 20th century butcher shop. Those efforts along with the Olson family’s prominent Benson business have made us a city landmark.

Our Story

Infusion Brewery now occupies the former home of Olson’s Meat Market in Downtown Benson. When the building became available, Bill Baburek, owner of Omaha’s Crescent Moon, decided to turn his dream of opening a craft brewery into reality.

The History

Infusion Brewing is located in the heart of Downtown Benson, Nebraska – a historic neighborhood nine miles northwest of Omaha’s Central Business District. The building is situated on the south side of Maple Street (historically known as Mayne or Main Street) at the Military Avenue intersection.

The north half of the Olson’s Market building was built in 1917, and in 1934 an addition was constructed to the south that doubled the size of the building. The interior has been redeveloped, but the building functions much as it did when Charlie Olson operated his butcher shop. The first floor of the building has been renovated into the tap room, where patrons will enjoy handcrafted Infusion beer in the same room Charlie Olson greeted his customers. The brewing equipment is located in the rear of the building, and the basement is used for grain storage, keg washing and filling.

We have embraced the history of our building and our community. All historic finishes in the building have been restored, including the mosaic floor tile, wood floors, decorative wall tiles, plaster walls, ornamental tin ceiling, concrete floors and exposed masonry.

The Beer District

Finding the right location is one of the most challenging aspects of opening a brew pub. When a friend decided to sell his building in the Benson area of Omaha, Bill knew the time was right. Benson was already developing a reputation as a craft beer lover’s destination – so what better way to solidify that then to open a brewery there?
