Ancient civilizations believed paradise existed at the highest point in the universe, within a fiery sphere they called “The Empyrean.” Inspired by this sentiment, we set out to infuse every batch of our handcrafted ales with our notion of paradise. Take a journey with us, one sip at a time. Together, we pursue the brew.

With a varied portfolio of both signature and experimental recipes, our fine ales and lagers can be sampled next door at Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill in the Haymarket, and throughout the Midwest. Visit the Empyrean website for details on upcoming tours, or to locate a retailer near you.
