Zookeeper IPA by Empyrean Ales

We are proud to announce another great community partnership supporting our expansion. Empyrean Ales have created a special brew called Zookeeper IPA that is available now! $1 from every case of this seasonal offering will support the Zoo’s expansion and help bring giraffes, tigers and spider monkeys to Lincoln. Zookeeper IPA is available at stores and restaurants across Lincoln.

Zookeeper IPA
Untamed, tart citrus flavor with tropical rainforest aroma, this sessionable IPA is sweet-natured with an animalistic soul. Inside all of us is a wild thing.
