Lincoln's Empyrean Brewing Company has created a custom cask for Blatt Beer and Table, and they want customers to help decide what goes in it.
The restaurant is asking its fans to vote on Facebook between a number of special infusions that can be added to Empyrean's Fallen Angel Sweet Stout. Voters can choose two of the six available ingredients: chai, Frangelico, mint, maple, chocolate or vanilla bean.
The poll continues through Jan. 29 and the restaurant will tap the beer Feb. 20 during Omaha Beer Week.
