Brewers/founders Evan Vacarr and Dave Bombard began brewing 10 gallon batches together several years ago and have turned that passion into a nano brewery in Colchester, VT.  Evan and Dave are creating unique, inspired hand craft ales.  Their beers are more than approachable…they are crushable.

In their first week in business, Green Empire Brewing won top prize at Burke Mountain Bike & Briefest with their Side Business IPA.  They beat out a lot of the “big guys” and earned themselves a full time tap line at the ski resort!

Green Empire also has brewed one of Vermont’s first hemp beers – the aptly named Chill Session.  This is a 4.2% dry hemp and mosaic hop brew that is dank and delicious.

Here at VT Beer Shepherd, we are thrilled to work with Evan and David and get their amazing beer into craft beer lover hands!

The brewers in their element!
