Fontenelle Forest’s popular Beer on the Boardwalk event is moving “OFF” the Boardwalk for 2020!

Drink beer to support local breweries and Fontenelle Forest, one of Nebraska’s oldest conservation organizations… Yep – that’s a thing! 

It’s true – you can partake in your favorite pastime, support the Forest AND support local breweries, all at the same time. With all the craziness happening with COVID-19, we didn’t think a large gathering on the Boardwalk was the best idea. So we rallied a bunch of your favorite local breweries and restaurants and put together a stellar Beer OFF the Boardwalk tour we think you’ll really enjoy, complete with a “Trail Guide” to help you navigate the 15 amazing stops (and offers) included in the tour.

What is included in the Trail Guide?

The Trail Guide includes heavily discounted offers on a variety of beers, spirits, and food from 14 local breweries and restaurants, and a bonus offer of 20% off an adult climb at TreeRush Adventures at Fontenelle Forest. It includes all the information you need to complete your Beer OFF the Boardwalk Tour!

How does this event “Support Local?”

We know everyone is struggling right now. We also know the Bellevue and Omaha metro communities are known for their generous neighbor-helping-neighbor mentality! So, we designed this event to not only support Fontenelle Forest, but to also support local businesses at a time when they need it most by driving traffic directly to their doors.

All of the participating breweries and restaurants were excited to jump on board and offer a great deal, which is a win-win because it gets YOU out of the house after months stuck inside! Not ready to venture out in public, but still want to participate? No worries! We were thinking ahead and made sure all offers are good through June 30, 2021, so you have several months to redeem them!

All the extra “deets:”

  • Trail Guides are available for purchase now through Oct. 15 (or until we run out)!
  • Trail Guides can be mailed OR picked up (beginning Sept 28) at the Fontenelle Forest Nature Center during regular business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily. Must indicate preference at the time of purchase.
  • Trail guides can be purchased online (see links above), over the phone at 402-731-3140, or at our Visitor Services desk.
  • All offers are one per customer, per coupon unless otherwise stated.
  • All offers are good through June 30, 2021.
  • This event is intended for ages 21 and up. Please drink responsibly.

What is Fontenelle Forest?

If you’ve never been to Fontenelle Forest, this is an awesome opportunity to participate in our 2020 Beer OFF the Boardwalk tour AND discover all of the cool stuff you can do at the Forest!

Fontenelle Forest encompasses 2,100 acres and 24 miles of hiking trails (including a one-mile, ADA-accessible boardwalk). Walking our trails is an experience unlike any other in the Omaha-metro area. Encounter a range of vastly different ecosystems, from deciduous forest to oak savanna, prairie, and wetlands. Our trails are open year-round, providing the opportunity to experience the beauty of all four seasons in the Forest. Observe wildlife and scenic views of the Missouri River, discover Acorn Acres, and visit the raptors in the Raptor Woodland Refuge.

Thank you for supporting Fontenelle Forest and local businesses.

Your purchase of a Beer OFF the Boardwalk Trail Guide will not only support Fontenelle Forest’s important work in conservation, education and recreation – but will also support several community businesses when they need it the most!
