Monday May 16th - Straight Up Saison Release
Starting at  5pm we will tap this year’s Straight Up Saison. Brewed with barley, oats and wheat, this hazy yellow offering's silky texture is offset by its high level of carbonation. More spice complexity and malt sweetness refresh the tongue as the wheat and yeast work together on the finish. Our cooler will be stocked with Straight Up Saison 22oz bottles to go.
In support of our local music venue friends The Marquis Theater, we will give away to sets of tickets to Titus Andronicus with La Sera on May 17th.  No purchase necessary. All you have to do is be one of the first guest to come in after 5 and tell the bartender you are a “Straight Up Music Fan” and you will receive a set of tickets.

Thursday May 19th - NOVO Coffee Happy Hour, 4:00 pm
Featuring a firkin of Epic’s Mid Mountain Mild with Belekatu Coffee from NOVO Coffee.
Erich Rosenberg, the award winning NOVO Coffee roaster, and NOVO staff will be hanging out in the taproom to talk about this great blend of coffee and beer. Epic has a passion for blending  coffee with beer and this special firkin follows that passion.

Mid Mountain Mild Ale:
This extremely pleasant to drink ale has very minimal hop addition. The delicate Mt. Hood hops give it a smooth body with a bit of nuttiness and slightly sweet malt finish. This sessionable ale has some wonderful vanilla and honey notes that are well balanced throughout the drink.

Belekatu Coffee:
This is a medium roast from Kochere, Oromia Ethiopia with a plush body. Flavor notes include candied lemon, Muscat grape, and milk chocolate with a dry finish.

Pints of this special firkin will be only $4 all night (while supplies last)
