Empirical Brewery

Chicago, IL

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 brewery is our laboratory, and we often collect feedback from our customers on our experimental recipes. Almost all our equipment is brand new, state of the art, and American made.
