We’ve created this page to help any of our volunteers who are new to Lincoln (or just haven’t been downtown in a while) to avoid the evil Tow Truck Gremlins and to find a place to stay while you’re visiting.

Parking Information:

Do not park next door at LaMar’s Donuts or at Wells Fargo. You WILL get towed.

Very limited parking is available in Ploughshare’s designated lot, adjacent to their building, which is marked with signage denoting “Ploughshare Brewing Co. Customer Parking Only”.

Limited parking is also available on-street near Ploughshare Brewing Co. However meters are in effect until 6pm on Saturdays, so this may not be the best option.

For 2016, we are working on a nearby option for free parking, but we have not confirmed the space yet – Please stay tuned in case we are able to offer you reserved parking!!

Here are a few parking options located nearby…

Lincoln Park-And-Go – Max $9 per day except for special events/Football. Pay-as-you-exit. Cards accepted 24hr/day. Limited attendant hours for cash payments (Hours vary per garage).
University Square Parking Garage – 101 N. 14th St.
Larson Building & Garage – 1317 Q St.

University of Nebraska Lincoln – Max $5 per day except for special events/Football. Pay-as-you-exit, credit cards only. Open 6AM to Midnight.
17th & R Street Parking Garage – 300 N 17th St.

Assurity Life Garage – We’ve read claims on the Internet that free parking is offered here on weekends (or, SOME weekends, anyways) – Please proceed with caution, we have NOT vetted this information!
20th & Q Street.

Beds For Brewers Program:

This year, to help keep your travel expenses to a minimum, we’re going to help pair up visiting judges with our Lincoln Lagers members who have room for guests at their home!

To get paired with a Lincoln club member, please send us an email – please do note any allergies, etc. you may have, just in case that affects who can host you!
