Release History

  • Escape to Colorado IPA gets a New Look and a New Recipe

    It’s a brand-new year, with plenty of fresh powder across the Rockies and our go-to adventure beer, Escape to Colorado IPA, is sporting a bright new look and a bold hoppy-citrus recipe. Escape was the first beer we brewed at our Denver brewery, in the legendary RiNo neighborhood, and has long embodied our love of the Centennial State. A lot has changed over the past six years but our passion for outstanding beer enjoyed with friends, on the slopes, around the campfire or even the backyard, has never wavered.

    The new Escape to Colorado IPA is a modernized evolution of the original with a slightly modified grain bill and packed to the brim with late-addition Citra and Mosaic hops and, because Epic always goes all-out, there is now nearly double the dry hop volume of the previous recipe. In order to keep all those hop flavors and aromas in the beer we decided to leave it unfiltered.

    “We’ve learned a lot about capturing a hop’s flavor and aroma from our numerous New England-Style IPA’s. While Escape to Colorado is defiantly not a hazy IPA we did utilize some our new hopping techniques to build a bright citrus and tropical flavor profile,” says Jordan Schupbach, Epic’s Director of Brewing Operations. “We also decided to leave the beer unfiltered, so every bit of hoppy goodness is kept intact.”

    The new cans will hit shelves in the coming weeks in Colorado and then roll out to the rest of the country over the next month.

    “We are stoked to have broader distribution of Escape to Colorado than ever before, especially in our home state. It is now super easy to grab this great beer for all those impromptu adventures,” said Darin McGregor, V.P. of Sales and Marketing.

  • Born BIG. Bred BAD. BAPTIZED by Beer.

    How far is too far? Well, if you are truly Epic, you’re more concerned with what’s not far enough. That’s why the adventurous and creative minds at Epic Brewing have taken barrel aging to a whole new level with this year’s Big Bad Baptist season. Not only are we releasing the most complex and outrageous version of Baptist yet, Quadruple Barrel Big Bad Baptist, but we have taken our barrel ageing program, stripped it down to its core and rebuilt it with one goal in mind – taking a legendary beer and making it even better.

    Quadruple Barrel Big Bad Baptist is one of those ideas that’s just crazy enough to be great. We started with our Imperial Stout and a grip of rum barrels. These tend to highlight the molasses and toasted marshmallow flavors in the beer and pairs perfectly with coconut as noted by the success of last year’s Triple Barrel Big Bad Baptist. But we felt like there was still room to take this concept and the complexity a step farther and it didn’t take us long to start experimenting with almonds. We packed first-use whiskey barrels with Blue Copper’s Brazil Cruzerio coffee beans, shaved coconut, and slivered almond so all three ingredients could soak up a much barrel character as possible before being added to the beer.

    “We’re taking our 100% barrel aged philosophy to the extreme and barrel-aging any ingredient that will absorb the flavor and character of barrels before going in the beer. What’s great about this approach is that the adjuncts don’t mask any of the barrel character we’ve worked so hard to develop in the beer. Cracking the casks of coconut and almond open after they’ve aged is amazing. The entire brewery fills with the aroma and everyone starts to get excited to finally taste the results,” says Jordan Schupbach, Epic Brewing’s Director of Brewing Operations.

    This year OG Big Bad Baptist is one of the finest and most fussed over releases we’ve ever produced. Each release is a hand-picked blend of first, second, and third use whiskey barrels. We’ve expanded our barrel aging program to over 2000 barrels and our cellarman track and taste each one as it develops. This attention to detail and the high standards we place on each barrel means the resulting blend is simply the best of the best. This year’s coffee is a Columbian origin roasted by Salt Lake City’s Blue Copper Coffee Roasters. The lightly roasted beans have a nutty and earthy quality that rounds out the chocolate, malt and barrel character. The coffee is still upfront but quick to step aside and show off the barrel character.

    “We wanted this year’s Big Bad Baptist to reflect the complexity and nuance that goes into its making. In a lot of ways this year’s approach is a return to the first few batches we made when our program was only 20 barrels. I have to hand it to our team – handling a program one hundred times larger isn’t easy and you can taste the hard work and passion they put into the beer,” says Epic Brewing Co-Founder, Dave Cole.

    Completing the trio this year is Big Bad Baptista. We just couldn’t imagine a winter without the warm and comforting combination of Mexican coffee, chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Adding to its long list of accolades Baptista was ranked #23 in Paste Magazine’s massive 144 Imperial Stout tasting and maintains a solid 4.4 caps on Untappd.

    All three Baptists will be distributed nationally to all of Epic’s markets and will be available in stores by the middle of November.

  • New Look - Expanded Taproom

    The view from Utah’s favorite brewery just became more Epic with an expanded and remodeled taproom as well as new labels for its Utah Series beers.

    The remodeled taproom can now seat 20 guests, up from the previous which only sat 6. The new taproom also comes with a change from a restaurant license to a bar license. This means patrons are no longer required to purchase food in order to drink. A small menu of paninis will still be available, and guests are welcome to bring outside food. The license change also means no one under 21 will be allowed in the taproom.

    “The brewery has always been a great place to grab cold, full-strength, beer to go. Our cold case is open seven days a week and holidays, with a selection of over 20 different beers, but sampling them or even just enjoying a pint has been, well, just plain cramped,” says, Dave Cole, Epic’s Co-Founder. “With the new expansion Epic is now a great place to meet your friends and enjoy a few pints comfortably.”

    For the first time since opening in 2008 Epic will be able to pour 4% ABV beer on draught at its brewery. They will offer beers from their low ABV “Utah Session Series” as well as rotating experimental beers.

    “The Tapless-Taproom is no more, and customers don’t have to hide in the closet when they want to try one of our strong barrel-aged stouts or hazy New England-Style IPA’s. The addition of 4% draft beer is great too. It gives everyone who wants to drink a good option and we’re happy to see friends kicking back and enjoying a few pints comfortably,” says Mattie Provence, Epic’s Taproom Manager.

    Epic’s Utah Series of beers, including Spiral Jetty IPA, Cross Fever Amber Ale, Intermountain Wheat Beer, and Pfeifferhorn Lager, have a fresh new look. These beers have been longtime favorites of locals and the artwork reflect Utah’s popular outdoor adventures. The recipe for Spiral Jetty IPA has also been updated.

    “Our approach to brewing great IPA's has shifted in the past 8 years as new hop varieties and techniques were developed. We've updated the recipe by emphasizing the citrus aroma and flavors of the hops while still keeping the quintessential Spiral Jetty flavor,” says Jordan Schupbach, Epic’s Director of Brewing Operations, “Long-time fans and new comers alike will apricate the brighter hops and refreshing finish. It’s been my go-to post-hike beer this fall.”

    Epic will be celebrating the new changes on Friday October 26th by offering a selection of samples from the Utah series in the newly remodeled taproom with pairings of their famous paninis. 2nd Tracks will be set up outside offering ski tunings and a gear sale to get you ready for the freshies.

    Social Axe will also be set up on site to axe the old labels. Guests will have a chance to win prizes by throwing axes at the old bottle labels.

    Both the retail, beer-to-go, and the taproom will be open seven days a week.

    Monday – Thursday 11am – 9pm              Friday – Saturday 10am – 11pm                                Sunday 11am – 7pm
