Happy National IPA Day!

Today is #NationalIPADay! It’s the hoppiest day of the year! Join us as we celebrate one of craft beer’s most iconic styles: India Pale Ale.
India Pale Ale, also referred to as IPA, is a hoppy pale ale that has become the most popular beer style in the craft beer industry. The style originates in England when brewers began exporting their beer to colonial India. Traditional beer styles would spoil in hot cargo ships over the course of the long journey. Brewers then began to experiment with more malt to increase the alcohol content, and more hops which acted as a natural preservative… thus IPA was born!

On Thursday August 4th we’ll be offering $3 pints of our original IPA and $4 pints of our SLO MO’ IPA at our Syracuse and Cazenovia locations. Get hoppy with us on National IPA Day!

What IPAs will you find at Empire?

ORIGINAL IPA 7.2% ABV
Our American IPA, hopped heavily w/ 6 kettle additions of Falconers Flight. It has a citrus aroma and a bright earthy flavor, with just the right amount of malt balance.

SLO MO’ IPA 6.5% ABV
Slo Mo’ IPA is a true American IPA brewed with a blend of Falconer’s Flight and Mosaic Hops to convey bright tropical citrus notes for a crisp dry finish.
