 The science behind the beer Empirical is named after our process: we use empirical observations to improve our beer. The brewers test new recipes on a custom 1-barrel pilot system on a regular basis with two goals in mind: explore new styles, or refine previously created recipes. Our taproom is our laboratory, and we often collect feedback from our customers on our 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.
Where does our logo come from? The Empirical symbol is an stylized ancient heiroglyph of a clay jug with a pointed base that represented the word for beer in the cuneiform language. "Beer" and "Bread" were the most common words. "Beer" resembled the fermentation vessels used at the time. The symbol was modernized and turned into an "E" Our logo is an homage to the past and a symbol of the present.
