Empyrean’s Zookeeper Lemon Kolsch Back for Final Year

Empyrean Brewing Co.’s Zookeeper® Lemon Kolsch is returning for one last season. Zookeeper® is brewed in support of the Lincoln Children’s Zoo and features giraffe-themed packaging. Get it while you can–it’s only available while supplies last.

Find Zookeeper® in 6-packs wherever Empyrean Brewing Co. is sold. This year, 16-oz Zookeeper® cans will be offered at various Nebraska summer events. The Kolsch-style ale packs refreshing flavor at 5% alc/vol, making it a great, easy-sipping summer beer.

Empyrean Brewing Co. and the Lincoln Children’s Zoo partnership began in 2018 with the first Zookeeper® beer. As in previous years, Super Saver and Russ’s Market are generously donating $1 for every Zookeeper® Lemon Kolsch case sold. Last year, $1,910 was raised for the over 400 animals that live in the Lincoln Children’s Zoo.

Jim Engelbart, operations manager at Empyrean Brewing Co. said, “This is one of our more challenging brews due to the large amount of lemon we use, but it’s so fun to execute and worth the effort! The lemon puree really gives it that zesty, fresh flavor you just can’t fabricate. Even better when it’s brewed for a great cause! When life gives you lemons, make yourself a delectable lemon Kolsch.”
