Pitched Blue Debut

Empyrean Brewing Co. is pleased to announce our newest late-summer seasonal, Pitched Blue.

In thematic keeping, Pitched Blue, a black and blueberry ale is deceptively dark in the glass, but will thrill your senses with fresh notes of blueberry muffins, starry nights and biscuit malts.

“We set out to brew a beer that’s reminiscent of homemade blueberry muffins,” said Head Brewer Rich Chapin. “And I think we nailed it.”

Inspired by the Great American Total Eclipse of 2017 and Van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night; the label artwork represents the parallel realities of a natural phenomenon reawakening imaginative works from a past time. Empyrean mingled together these realities to give you our most playful creation yet. Wink-wink.

Please welcome another Empyrean beer that is fueled by the truths, myths and legends, Pitched Blue. Brewed with natural blueberry juice, and for available for a limited time in the height of cool, breezy blueberry season. Pitched Blue is coming in at 14°OG, 24 IBUs and 5.5% of alcohol content.

We keep our portfolio, unfiltered, unpasteurized and preservative-free. We tend to rock and roll, we ruffle the sheets and may or not have one alien on our brewing crew. Go find your thrill…
