Marcus Hotels & Resorts, which owns The Cornhusker Marriott, said it will open its Miller Time Pub & Grill at the hotel in August. 

Marcus Hotels & Resorts refreshed and reintroduced the collaboration with Miller Coors this week at the restaurant's original location in the Hilton Milwaukee in Milwaukee.

Lincoln will be the second site for the Miller Time Pub & Grill. Additional locations for the new Miller Time Pub & Grill concept are being considered, the company said.

The Cornhusker Marriott is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation since Marcus acquired it last year. Renovation of the Miller Time Pub & Grill space, now occupied by The Terrace Grill at the hotel in Lincoln, will begin in June.   

Marcus' idea behind the Miller Time Pub & Grill is "creating a comfortable, neighborhood social spot while paying homage to its beer-inspired roots."

"To enhance the dining experience, the restaurant, in partnership with world-class brewer MillerCoors, offers more than 25 draft options and over 50 brands of beers in a variety of growlers, yards or flights," Marcus said in a news release. "Changes to service include staffed certified cicerones (beer experts) who are trained and tested on their beer knowledge, and available to help guests find perfect beer pairings for every menu selection"

The menu features specially crafted burgers, along with lighter, healthier salads, hearty entrees including crab cakes, fish, chicken, steak and a selection of desserts.

The grill will feature MillerCoors decor, including a collection of memorabilia and artifacts, photos and vintage ads, as well as a retail area.
