Empire Brewing Company

We told you awhile back that the Empire Brewing Company was rumoured to be returning to its old familiar place in Armory Square. Well folks, today is the day! The Empire returns complete with the old owner and even many old favourites from the menu. Former Middle Ages head brewer Tim Butler will handle the beer, which will include an Amber Ale, Irish Stout, Hefeweizen and the old Skinny Atlas Light, as well as guest taps from New York State breweries including Middle Ages, Ommegang, Ithaca and Brooklyn. For you snobby folk there will also be a rotating selection of about 30 wines. As we've been saying that Middle Ages should take over the old Empire space for some time now, we find this development quite pleasing. The whole thing sounds absolutely fantastic, and we are hoping to visit later in the week, at which time we promise to file a full report. Until then, read more here.
