Brewed: Where Craft Beer and Craft Coffee Collide

Coffee Bender from Surly Brewing, Espresso Oak Aged Yeti from Great Divide Brewing, Big Bad Baptist from Epic Brewing… These are the beers that first come to mind when we think of the delicious harmony between beer and coffee.  The rich, roasted flavors of dark beers like stouts and doppelbocks impart themselves wholly to the […]

An Epic Firkin Night

Epic Brewing Company, one of Denver’s newest breweries, decided the best way to make a first impression is by making 50 of them – 50 firkins that is. Last night, Epic threw what could be called an epic party – Epic tapped 50 unique firkins as part of its Great American Beer Festival events. “Firkins […]

Weekend off the Wagon – September 27-29

Weekend off the Wagon in your inbox, every Friday If you’re not suffering from the grim spector of illness like so many are from the change in weather, then I suggest you go out and enjoy the Denver Oktoberfest festivities starting tonight. Obviously, Prost Brewing Company has already started early, but it’d make sense to visit them at some […]

Epic Brewing opens in Denver on September 28th

Lucky us, we managed to get a sneak preview of the new Epic Brewing space in Denver (3001 Walnut Street) this afternoon. This Utah-based brewery decided to open a Denver location.

Epic Brewing Kicks off Colorado Distribution

RiNo Pale Ale

While Epic Brewing is already a well-established name among beer geeks, the greater Denver-area has not yet had the fortune of sampling Epic’s award-winning lineup outside of select locations (e.g. Hops and Pie) and occasional festivals. That will change on Monday when Epic kicks off a week-long celebration to mark the beginning of its distribution […]

Their 20 barrel, twin kettle system has been delivered (from Oregon!) and they invited us press folks out to take a look at the place before the dust settled. If you frequent the […]

Denver’s Epic New Brewery

Epic Brewing

Denver was buzzing during the 2012 Great American Beer Festival. Not from all the beer being consumed, but buzzing because Kevin Compton, head brewer with Epic Brewing Company, let slip the news that the decorated Salt Lake City brewery would be opening a second facility in Denver. Fast forward to January when Epic confirmed one […]

What Does Belgium Taste Like? Hint: More Deliciousness, Less Waffles

Last weekend I found myself at Wynkoop Brewing’s United Tastes of Belgium, a beer tasting featuring over fifty Belgium or Belgium-style beers.  Little did I know it was also Belgium Independence Day.  Personally, I can think of no better way to celebrate gaining independence from the Nederlands than throwing a beer festival to celebrate. The […]
