  • Back in Black-Big Bad Baptist Reserve

    The best of the best of the best... of Big Bad Baptist. That’s what Epic Brewing cofounder Dave Cole had in mind when he and his team came up with the idea for Big Bad Baptist Reserve.

    Cole and his team took the brewery’s most legendary beer and carefully hand selected a limited number of the most perfect barrels, some rum and some whiskey, from the different batches and projects of the 2017/2018 “Baptist Season” and carefully blended what they thought was something special, a Big Bad Baptist of epic proportions. Then they dressed it in an all-black label that is as elegant as the beer in the bottle.

    “There is no beer that is more Epic than Big Bad Baptist,” said Cole. “Over the years we have explored different ways to experiment with the flavors and qualities of the beer, through the use of different coffees, adjuncts and barrels like with this year’s coconut-driven Triple Barrel Big Bad Baptist. For the Big Bad Baptist Reserve, we wanted to explore something more subtle, more refined. By using barrels from all the projects and giving the beer a little extra time to mature, we found the perfect blend that’s balanced, silky and mind-blowingly good.”

    The Reserve has only the choicest barrels of this year’s original version of Big Bad Baptist, plus beer from the best barrels from both the Baptista and Triple Barrel Baptist projects. That means it has the faintest touch of barrel-aged coconut, rum, and of course, copious amounts of artisanal coffee and cacao nibs. It does not, however, have any of the spices found in Baptista. It weighs in at 11.7% ABV and “hides every bit of it” according to Epic national sales manager Darin McGregor.

    Just 600 cases of this extremely limited release were made and Big Bad Baptist Reserve will be released to limited markets throughout the United States starting in mid-April.

  • Epic Releases RiNo APA

    Epic Brewing is releasing RiNo APA, a Juicy American Pale Ale starting this March. Their latest year-round can offering is inspired by what Epic has learned brewing New England-Style IPAs as well as the creativity and artistic passion they see in the River North neighborhood (RiNo) that is the home of their Denver brewery.

    "When we opened our brewery in 2013 the neighborhood was already buzzing with creative freedom and we were instantly drawn to its infectious energy. I see RiNo APA as a tribute to that venturing spirit. We’ve been fortunate to be involved with such a dedicated and hardworking community,” said Epic Co-Founder David Cole.

    RiNo APA is the reimagining of RiNo Pale Ale, one of the first beers Epic brewed to season their Denver brewhouse. It's updated with loads of juicy, late-addition, Centennial and Mosaic hops, just a bit of haze to soften the mouth-feel and a bright burst of colorful tropical aromas. 

    The beer will be launching in a newly redesigned 12oz can inspired by the multitude of murals decorating the neighborhood. The initial launch will be in mid-March with full national distribution coming online through April. It will be available year-round on draft and in cans.

    "RiNo APA pushes and perhaps breaks the boundaries of the American Pale Ale Style. We wanted to make something juicy, hoppy and yet, approachable. This is a beer you can drink a lot of that still doesn’t compromise or let up on flavor. This is definitely going to be my go-to beer in 2018 ,” said National Sales Manager Darin McGregor. “And our approach to production and distribution will ensure that this beer pulls fast, fresh and delicious through the market.”

  • Off-flavors in Big Bad Baptista #8

    Epic Brewing is calling for an immediate withdrawal of a single batch of Big Bad Baptista – Release #8 DEN #4799, which was bottled on 11/9/2017, after receiving several reports over the past few weeks of developing off-flavors in the beer. We are working with our distribution partners and retailers to immediately withdraw as much beer as possible. The following states received Big Bad Baptista – Release #8 DEN #4799:

    Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina, Idaho, the Bay Area of California, and Austin, Texas.

    When we received the first complaints we immediately began pulling samples and testing the beer in-house to track down the cause of the issue. Here is what we found:

    • Through sensory analysis, our team discovered varying levels of a buttery, off-flavors from nearly undetectable to overwhelming levels, thus confirming the reports that had been sent to us by consumers.
    • The micro-testing we conducted confirmed a bacterial presence in both the bottles and kegs that were sampled. Samples have been sent to a third-party lab for further identification of the bacteria strain. This bacterial infection results in flavor issues with the beer, but is not harmful.
    • Our protocol for every beer we release is to run both sensory and microbiological analysis on each batch before it’s packaged, screening for off-flavors and possible beer spoilers. Regrettably, in the case of Big Bad Baptista – Release #8 DEN #4799, our records indicate that our standard testing protocols simply didn’t happen, which was a failure of the system we have in place to prevent these types of issues.

    If you are a retailer who has Big Bad Baptista – Release #8 DEN #4799 in stock please contact your local Epic Brewing distributor to have the product replaced or credited. If you are a customer who purchased Big Bad Baptista #8 we have implemented a simple claim process. Please email with the following information:

    First & Last Name
    Shipping address
    When and where the beer with purchased
    A photo of the stamped information on the side of the label

    We want all of our customers to know we are taking this situation seriously and want the opportunity to make things right with anyone who purchased a bottle or keg of Big Bad Baptista – Release #8 DEN #4799 and we apologize for any disappointment we may have caused.

  • New England-Style IPA

    These juicy, hazy, hop bombs are packed to the brim with flavor. In fact, we’ve been downright irresponsible when it comes to hop utilization. Our brewers have been experimenting with everything from lupulin powder, to massive hop backs, exploring the flavor synergies of fermentation hopping, and literally cramming in more dry hops then our tanks can even hold.

    Our New England-Style IPA rotates through different recipes and hop charges as we source new and interesting hop varieties.  See the side of the can for indicators about each new recipe.

  • Epic Brewing Completes Purchase of Santa Barbara’s Telegraph Brewing Company

    Salt Lake City, UT— On December 6th Epic Brewing purchased Telegraph Brewing Company, Santa Barbara’s first and original craft brewery, and has announced investment plans to expand Telegraph and broaden the brewery’s reach as an additional brand in the Epic family.

    Telegraph Brewing has been operating in Santa Barbara since 2006 when Founder Brian Thompson opened his dream brewery, focused on high-quality, Belgian-inspired, uniquely-Californian beers produced with local ingredients.

    “So much has changed in the craft beer world since I started Telegraph, back when hazy beers were just called unfiltered and there were fewer than 1,500 brewers nationwide,” Thompson said. “Today, with the number of breweries approaching 6,000, the craft brewing landscape is radically different. We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished, but the increased competition from the likes of AB-INBEV’s “crafty beers” as well as new startups is requiring everyone in the industry to recalibrate their plans for the future. Earlier this year I began looking for ways to strengthen our legacy, and entering into a transaction with Epic was the right fit, both strategically and culturally. This partnership will allow us to nurture our deep California roots, retain and expand our amazing staff, and continue to develop our brand in new and innovative ways. My team and I are excited that Telegraph Brewing will remain a small, independent craft brewery and at the same time have the support and drive provided by one of the nation’s most creative, fearless, and fastest-growing brewery.”

    Team Telegraph lo res

    With Epic’s investment, Telegraph will not only continue brewing its well-respected beer, but will begin expanding its brewing operations. There are immediate plans to increase the production capacity and offer new packaging options, including several new 12-ounce cans under the Telegraph brand. Epic will also move seven of their foeders—large wooden vessels for aging sour beer—from their Denver brewery to Santa Barbara, enabling Telegraph to produce more of its award-winning sour beers. California locals can also look forward to a new series of modern IPAs including some juicy and hazy styles, which will be sold fresh from Telegraph’s brewery.

    “It’s a long-term dream come true” says Dave Cole, Co-founder of Epic Brewing. “I fell in love with craft beer living in California and that love didn’t diminish when I moved to Utah despite the beer scene at the time. I feel like I’ve come full circle. We have been actively looking for great breweries to purchase for the past 18 months and bringing Telegraph Brewing into the Epic family is exciting. We are investing in the future of Santa Barbara and are thrilled to have a direct and local connection to the amazing California craft beer community, where we share so much history. To be part of such a well-regarded brewery like Telegraph is something I’ve always hoped to do and now it’s finally a reality. It provides us an avenue to combine our teams and build on Telegraph’s portfolio with our innovative vision. This couldn’t be a better fit - including some advantageous distribution overlaps that create opportunities to expand both brands across California and beyond."
