About Empirical Brewery
Empirical is named after our process: we use empirical observations to improve our beer.
The brewers brew up new recipes on a custom 1-barrel pilot system on a regular basis with two main goals: explore new styles or refine recipes. Our taproom is our laboratory, and we often collect feedback from our customers on experimental recipes. When we’re happy with a beer, it gets moved to the 30-barrel production system. Almost all of our equipment is brand new, state-of-the-art, and American made. We take beer brewing seriously! Or at least as seriously as we take anything else.
