Beer + Milk = Profit
The folks behind Empyrean Brewing Co. are moving the brewery to the former Meadow Gold plant in the Haymarket. It sounds like the move is part of a long-range plan to redevelop the building for multiple uses. The building, located at 7th and M, is a bit far south relative to most Haymarket activity, but who knows what the next decade will bring. Empyrean’s current location is next door to Lazlo’s.
Speaking of Lazlo’s, is there any activity in the former Lazlo’s location? I still prefer the old layout over the new one. The old spot was quirky and fun. The new location feels like any old chain. When Lazlo’s first moved to its current spot I hoped that Jabrisco would reappear in the vacated space. No such luck so far.
Anyway, back to the beer. I’m sure the folks at PETA are happy about the swap of beer for milk. Or perhaps there’s still some milk production capability in the facility. If so, Chitoshi Nakahara has a recommendation for us: bilk. Lincoln, Nebraska: Bilk Capitol of the Midwest? It could happen.
