Goal Line Amber Ale cans are available at Lincoln Stars home games and for sale at most craft beer retailers in Lincoln.


LINCOLN, NE. September 19, 2023 – Local brewery Empyrean Brewing Co.® is commemorating its third season at Lincoln Stars hockey games. The launch of Goal Line Amber Ale 16-oz. cans also marks the first time it will be available year-round, and not just at Lincoln’s Ice Box. It is also the first time Empyrean will be packaged in a 4-pack yoke in lieu of a box.

The partnership between Empyrean Brewing Co.® and the Lincoln Stars began in 2021 when the Stars started offering craft beer at home games. Aside from Goal Line, other Empyrean beers at the Ice Box include a variety of seasonals and limiteds, along with three core beers: SunSlinger® XPA, Watch Man IPA® and Mind Over Mango IPA®.

After ending the last season 35-24-3-1, the Lincoln Stars kicked off this season with a win against Omaha in early September. A total of 30 home games will be played in the 2023-2024 season, which runs until mid-April. To purchase tickets, visit etix.com.

Ben Matya, sales and marketing manager at Empyrean Brewing Co.® said, “We’re very proud of this partnership with the Lincoln Stars. Having local beer at a local US Hockey League (USHL) is part of what makes home games so special—experiencing what you’re only able to do right here in Lincoln, Nebraska. We’re excited to continue this relationship with the Stars and look forward to many more exciting things to come.”
