Rockit Ranch & Empirical Brewing Collaboration

Rockit Ranch is proud to announce our collaboration with Empirical Brewing Company to produce our beer ‘Electric Blue.’ The smooth yet hoppy beer is a Rye Cream Ale inspired by the Cream song “Strange Brew.” Electric Blue will be featured across Chicago in our venues: Rockit Bar & Grill, Rockit Burger Bar, Bottlefork, and the Duck Inn. 

This Cream Ale is a hybrid style – brewed with much of the same ingredients as a Pilsener, but fermented with an ale yeast at cooler temperatures so that it is crisp and clean in flavor. Our version features a light, bready malt character courtesy of the German Vienna malt, while the addition of 10% rye malt adds a fruity/spicy note. The beer is finished with a conservative addition of noble German Tettnanger hops – just enough to know they are there. The earthy/minty hop profile from the Tett mingles with the spicyness from the rye yielding supremely drinkable and balanced beer.

ABV: 5.5% | IBU: 19 | SRM: 4.5

Malts & Adjuncts: US pale 2-row, German Pilsner, German Vienna, Rye Malt, Flaked Corn
