Empire No. 8 gets its name from the Empire Builder train that travels from Chicago to Spokane to Seattle and Portland. The train was used frequently for people traveling from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest during the World’s Fair Expo’s in 1962 in Seattle, and in 1974 in Spokane.
Today, the Empire Builder goes directly by both Safeco and Century Link Field stadiums; many Mariners fans hear the train’s whistle in the middle of home games. Now the Empire has landed at the stadiums in the form of No-Li’s Empire No. 8 Session IPA.
Empire No. 8 Session IPA is a light, 5.5% ABV, hop-forward beer perfect for drinking during the hot summer months.
The beer can also be found around the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, Montana), Western Canada, Hawaii, Texas, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Ohio and North Carolina in 22 oz bottles.
