Who we are. . .

Matt Myers founded The Happy Raven in November 2015 with the goal to provide a premiere craft beer bar without the pretension. Born and raised in Maryland, Matt moved to Nebraska for a basic bar management position, and three months later went all-in on a career in craft beer and hospitality when he opened The Happy Raven.

In three short years, his drive to make premium beer an expectation rather than a luxury has pushed modernization in the entire Lincoln craft beer scene. His commitment to good beer and great people means the menu is stocked with independent craft brews and the bar is full of folks you’ll actually enjoy talking to.

Under Matt’s leadership, we strive to create a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere at The Happy Raven with knowledgeable staff and an expertly-curated beer selection. Every staff member is a Certified Beer Server, a professional certification offered by the Cicerone Organization. In recognition of our efforts, we've been named Nebraska's Best Beer Bar by craftbeer.com three years in a row (2017, 2018, and 2019).
