Empyrean Brewing Co. is launching Long Route Peanut Butter Porter, an incredibly satisfying and highly demanded porter that will join the brewery’s year-round lineup. Craft drinkers can find Long Route on retail shelves in October, 2016.
The Long Route logo features a meandering path, or labyrinth, which is an ancient metaphor for wholeness. As one walks the in and out following circular pattern in a meditative state, the labyrinth serves as a physical representation of the journey to the center of your mind and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of yourself.
“We chose the labyrinth symbol and the name Long Route because it fits with our brewery’s brand story that humanity is curious by nature.” said Rich Chapin, Head Brewer at Empyrean.
“We’re all on a pilgrimage towards enlightenment and eternal happiness. So why not enjoy that journey with a beer in hand?”
With the delightful aroma of a peanut butter cup, this beer maintains a porter backbone with twisting layers of chocolate, peanut butter and toast. Malt forward with very little bite, Long Route is 6% alcohol, 20 IBUs and 14.6o OG.
Long Route Peanut Butter Porter will be available throughout Empyrean Brewing Company’s Midwest distribution footprint in 6-pack bottles and on draught.
