EMPIRICAL TAPROOM

your best friend's basement

The Empirical Taproom consists of our main brewing space and a tasting taproom. We only serve the beer that we brew, and we always have a beer for every palate.

We're dog friendly all the time, and underage patron friendly until 8PM.

We welcome all outside food in the taproom, so come by, order a pizza or a burger, chat with our amazing bartenders and enjoy some brews!

Please note:

At this time, we are not able to accommodate private/semi private parties

in the taproom or on the patio.

Thanks for your understanding.
