It was a wild weekend with races—both horses and humans, parties—holidays and graduations, and some erratic weather. To celebrate all that, we have a trio of beers from Empyrean Brewing Co this week. Hopefully Mother Nature is kind enough to let us golf, and hopefully you didn’t fiesta too hard on Cinco de Mayo because on tap we have Empyrean’s Mexican Lager. Part of their Carpe Brewem series, the Mexican Lager is pale in color and light in flavor with a refreshing, dry finish. Enjoy while imagining you’re on a beach, instead of in the stormy Midwest. For samples this week, we have Zookeeper IPA and Super Nova Summer Fest. Zookeeper IPA was brewed as a fundraiser for the Lincoln Children’s Zoo. It’s a sessionable IPA with tart citrus flavor and an extra hoppy blend of Citra and Simcoe. School’s out for summer (or maybe forever) and that means it’s time for Super Nova Summer Fest. This warm weather favorite pairs hints of sweet corn, bread, and caramel with just enough hops to balance its sweetness.
