Our Beer Lineup

We wanted to give you a preview of our beer lineup, as we get closer to brewing our first batches of beer.

As with the periodic table of elements, our version has families. 2πR (the formula for determining the circumference of a circle) indicates our year-round offerings and what we believe will become our flagship beers. The Speed of Light series will feature session beers. Our brewer, Art Steinhoff, will be tinkering with different ingredients, like honey from his own apiary, in the Empirical Kitchens family. We also hope to collaborate with other breweries we love in Empirical Labs. Art will be creating new beer styles in Fringe Science and when our taproom opens we will have guest drafts from local and national breweries.

All of the beer names are placeholders, with the exception of Atomic Amber, Infinity IPA, Photon Kolsch, and Wavelength Wit. If you have feedback find us on TwitterFacebook or email [email protected]

Our Brewhouse Equipment Gets Connected - published on April 2nd, 2014

Our brewhouse equipment got hooked up yesterday, thanks to the guys from Sprinkman. It was kind of like putting together a giant metal puzzle, and also there was welding. There were also some guys hooking up our boiler. We’re getting closer and closer to brewing our first batch.

Finishing the Brewhouse – published on March 27th, 2014

One huge hurdle has just been cleared, finishing the brewhouse. That gets us one step closer to bringing Art’s excellent beers to the public. All that’s left is for the guys at Sprinkman to come in and hook it all together and then it will be ready for brewing. Thanks to Corcoran Fabrication & Design for the excellent work they did getting everything into place.
