There’s a new brewery in Lincoln.
Gideon’s Brewery has only been open 8 days and it’s the only brewery in the area. David Duma says he was excited to bring something new to the town and after brewing at home for years, he decided to turn a hobby into a business. Not only can you enjoy great beer, you can watch it being made from just a few feet away. Right now you can only buy by the glass, but Duma says that could change down the line.

David Duma; Owner: “So currently we have 6 beers on tap. We have a hefeweizen, we have a pale ale, an amber ale, a mango IPA, and we also have a belgian that’s on tap as well. So, a wide variety of beer.”

The next in rotation to be brewed are stouts and porters. Gideon’s is open Thursday to Sunday and is located on the eastern edge of town.

Fireside Office Solutions has acquired Woodmansee’s Office Supply.

The owner says the transition has been an easy one, with both companies having similar business models, similar products, and even mutual customers. This made phasing customers from one business to the other a simple one. Fireside has also taken in several of Woodmansee’s staff. For the time being, Fireside is keeping Woodmansee’s phone number, to help customers as they switch over.

Chris Whalen; President: “So it was just a natural fit that we acquired them as they were looking to take the next chapter in their life in retirement.”

The business offers furniture, supplies, copiers, scanners, and more.
