Lincoln Square Uptown
Cold Fusion

Cold Fusion Cream Ale is Empirical Brewery’s best seller and flagship.

The name Cold Fusion alludes to Empirical’s fusing of elements from both ales and lagers throughout the brewing process. The addition of Rye then infuses this crisp, smooth brew with an earthy spice.

End result: a crow-pleasing, crushable flavor.

Featured in a 2017 Chicago Tribune article titled “10 Chicago Beers to try this Summer,” Cold Fusion is in truth a treat for all seasons. And it’s a great choice for those seeking less hoppy-ness and more sessionablility.
