A Road Well-Traveled
The Empyrean brewing journey began in 1990 in Lincoln, Nebraska, with the craft beer boom in its infancy. We wanted to provide Nebraskans with good beer, and we were going to work hard to do just that. Our story commenced with tapping at Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill, a local staple, and later evolved with the addition of a sister restaurant, FireWorks. We began curating flavors and ingredients and meticulously handcrafted them into the core batch of beers that we still offer to this day, over 30 years later.
As Nebraska’s first craft brewery, we have continued to grow, learn, and experiment. Our sense of discovery still drives everything we do. Today, we feature flavors for nearly every palette and a taste for every journey.
