About Dry Irish Stout:
ABV 4.8%
“From great simplicity comes beautiful complexity; this Dry Irish Stout is brewed from just two-row barley malt, roasted barley and flaked barley. These three simple grains deliver layers of gorgeous roasted malt flavor rich with notes of coffee, bitter-sweet chocolate and subtle char and smoke. Smooth, soft and dry in the mouth, this stout satisfies and nourishes and delivers everything you need in a traditional dark ale.”

Évoluer – An American Golden Sour Aged in California Pinot Noir barrels.

epic

Epic Black Friday at Epic Brewing – Denver

For Black Friday ths year Epic is celebrating with two great specials.
First, we could not think of anything better to put on special then one of our newest darkest beers the “Big Bad Baptista!” Big Bad Baptista is inspired by traditional Mexican coffee, Café de Olla, which is served with cinnamon and piloncillo, an unrefined sugar. The Cinnamon adds another layer of complexity and accentuates the earthy character of Mexican Coffee.
So on Black Friday we will be tapping a special frikin of Baptista with Bacon and Smoked Sea Salt. We will tap this Firkin at 12pm.
Second, we will also be releasing a very limited amount of our newest beer in our Oak & Orchard series “Sour Pineapple.” We will have a extremely limited amount on tap as well. Sales will begin at 12pm.
The intense and complex sour character of this beer is developed in oak Foeders containing select cultures of Lactobacillus, Pediococcus and wild yeast. The process is slow and delicate, regularly taking a year or more. Once our brewers have decided it’s ready, we blend the soured beer into hand-selected oak barrels with fresh pineapple puree, where it undergoes additional sour fermentation and aging. You are holding our Brewmaster’s selected blend of those barrels. We took our time crafting this beer, and we hope you’ll take yours enjoying it.
See you this Friday!

Collaboration Fest 2016: The Best Year Yet!

Fest1

The third annual Collaboration Fest was last Saturday, March 19th at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. In addition to over 85 unique beers, this fest is one-of-a-kind in that it brings to light the camaraderie and extraordinary relationships among so many brewers. It is this spirit of working together that adds something special to to the overall atmosphere of Collaboration Fest.

Fest2

In my opinion, the 2016 festival was the best yet. I had more excellent beers this year than ever before! But to mention a few of my favorites:

Skeptic Ale: Barrel Aged American Peach IPA from Epic Brewing & Ska Brewing

Rock Star Part III: Sour Blend from Falling Rock Tap House & Star Bar

Neptune’s Fickle Grace: 100% Brett Citrus IPA from Fiction Beer Company & Tivoli Brewing Co

I Smoka: Coffee Mocha Porter from Oskar Blues & Horse & Dragon Brewing Company

ÜberMountain Barleyshine: English-Style Barleywine from Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery & Uber Brew

Morning in Havana: Tropical Stout from Upslope Brewing Co. & New Belgium Brewing Company (great on its own but even better with coffee added!)

Fest3

Understandably, Collaboration Fest sold out well before the actual event. If you missed it, make a mental note to get your tickets early next year, as it just keeps getting better and better.

Fest4

And whether you attended or not, here is where you can catch some of the beers that were brewed for Collaboration Fest:

  • Boulder Beer Co. and Fat Heads: Available at Boulder Beer starting 3/21. Available 4/1 in Ohio at all Winking Lizard Restaurant locations as well as additional tap takeovers in Ohio.
