It's not an easy thing getting a business off the ground. I have huge respect for those with the stones to deal with the morass of shit that ricochets their way on a daily basis. You have to deal with zoning, licensing, insurance, bonds, yada-yada-yada...
I think my head would pop if I ever had to deal with all the ordinances & bureaucracy that cities and townships spew at you.
Enough about my own timid nature, today is about Epic Brewing. Not only do these guys have the stomach to deal with the ordinance machine; they also have the cajones to start a brewery that's completely different from anything that Utah has seen in nearly a century.
After months of trying, the boys have finally found a piece of real estate that they can call their own. The new brewery will be located at 825 s. State Street in Salt Lake City. At the old Pho Anh Dao Vietnamese restaurant.
The remodel and reconstruction is slated to begin asap; as soon as architects and engineers finish their work. Glad to see things are finally starting to get off the ground for Epic.
No word yet on Epic's plan for Utah's first Vietnamese style beer...
