NE Beer:30 #62 Jim Engelbart | Empyrean Brewing Co.

Few people can say they’ve made a lasting impact in the Nebraska craft brewing scene, but Jim Engelbart doesn’t have that problem. Serving as the Operations Manager at Empyrean Brewing Co. (for 16+ years) and current President of the Nebraska Craft Brewers Association, Jim is truly a seasoned beer veteran in Nebraska. Jim and Grady talk about how the NCBG helped push for less restriction in taprooms during the COVID-19 pandemic, how Jim got started at Empyrean, and how Lazlo’s Grill has some killer food. Grady drank Empyrean Brewing’s (Lincoln, NE) ESB and Peanut Butter Porter while Jim sipped on an Empyrean Watchman IPA.
