It is not uncommon for breweries to set up shop in historic buildings and districts, contributing to the redevelopment of a neighborhood, something aligned with the goals of the Liederkranz Craft Brew & Sausage Fest where Infusion Brewing Company will serve samples of its beers on Aug. 20. Infusion Brewing is located in the former home of Olson’s Meat Market in the heart of Downtown Benson, Nebraska – a historic neighborhood nine miles northwest of Omaha’s Central Business District. 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 that opened in 2013. 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. "We have embraced the history of our building and our community," reads Infusion's website said of the building that was the meat market for more than 60 years. While the interior has been redeveloped, 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. And 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. Using a classic 7-barrel pub brewing system, Infusion serves up their craft beers year-round while changing up the seasonal brews almost weekly.
