Brewers and 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 & Brewfest 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!










Since then Green Empire has continued to wow with their Free Spirit DIPA, which greets the palate with notes of orange, pulp & stone fruit, followed by a smooth wave of bitterness on the finish.

And 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.

As well as many other fantastic brews.

You can find Green Empires beer on tap. And an increasing number of styles have become available in cans with artistic, thoughtful, and eye-catching labels.

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