Get Ready for Four Limited Releases from Epic This Spring

It’s almost time! Get ready for four special, limited releases from Epic Brewing! Three Oak and Orchard beers are hitting the shelves in April with a new batch of Sour Brainless on Peaches coming out in May. See below for all the details, straight from Epic Brewing.

Oak and Orchard Syrah, Release No. 2 

This time around we went with a little less funk and a lot more fruit. We loaded one of our Napa Valley foeders with our sour saison and so much blueberry, boysenberry and black currant that it was practically bursting at the seams, resulting in a beer that explodes with huge, fruity, wine-like notes. Available starting the first week of April with a release in Salt Lake City on April 14. 8.5% ABV, 661 cases.

Oak and Orchard Dark Sour with Plum, Release No. 2

The second packaging of this trip to the dark side is finally being released beyond the breweries’ walls. This Dark Sour has spent most of it life brooding in retired whiskey barrels before being finished with plum puree. Aromas of dark fruit, plum and fig fade into faint notes of earthy funk. Hitting markets around the country the second week of April. 654 cases, 7.5% ABV.

Oak and Orchard Pinot, Release No. 2

This is the second release of this extremely limited sour. This sour saison was fruited to mimic Pinot Noir (with blueberry, boysenberry, cranberry strawberry, plum) and aged in oak for months until it reached the peak of puckering perfection. Available at the end of April. 650 cases, 8.5% ABV.

Sour Brainless on Peaches, Release No. 3

She smells like a peach, but packs a cruel, puckering punch! This is our most sour version of this beer yet, but it still retains beautiful notes of peach skin, citrus and a dose of barnyard funk. Available in the beginning of May. 800 cases, 7.5% ABV.
