"come drink and do stuff."


Originally released on June 18th 2020, we are bringing it back October 1st !

June 18th was Empirical's 6th birthday, and we wanted to spend our time celebrating everyone who has supported us throughout the years.

New Style will only be available in 6 packs to-go in our taproom, and all proceeds will be donated back to our community that we love so dearly.

This community and neighborhood have been the backbone of our company, and we want to do what we can to give back.

Keep your eyes open and buy a six pack or three to support 60640!

New Barrel Aged Beers!

On Halloween we are releasing 6 distinct, Barrel Aged beers named after constellations!


With Cabernet Sauvignon barrels in mind, we chose to go with a Golden Ale. We wanted something light yet full of body and flavor so that the barrel can let the wine characteristics shine.


We let it sit for three years before deciding to taste and blend barrels together. The result is an array of slightly tart ales, full of juicy-wine like mouthfeel and a hint of hay at the finish.

Come and experience all the constellations of the night sky! Available in bottles in very limited quantities! 

gamma ray ginger wheat

Get ready. It's back.

The force is strong with this one. Gamma Ray is one of everyone's favorite beers, and for good reason!

Gamma Ray Ginger Wheat was designed to be the perfect pairing for food. We began with a classic Witbier malt bill then added our own twist by tossing fresh ginger root and lime zest into the boil while adding cracked black and pink peppercorns as a “dry hop”. The body of this beer is light and spritzy with just a touch of tartness to help round out all the flavors and make the ginger and citrus sing. Gamma Ray is ultra refreshing especially when consumed with full flavored, spicy or floral foods, especially grilled veggies.
