Fest Devious from Epic

Epic Brewing Co. in Salt Lake City has announced they've created a new series of beers especially designed for the Autumn months.

The Fest Devious line will be similar to Epic's Exponential Line in that the beers will be limited batches of highly creative recipes designed for the Fall Seasons palate.

Release #1 is a very light copper colored Märzen Lager made from Weyerman Pilsner, CaraMunich, Munich Malt 20, and Bonlander Munich Malt. Hoppped with Premiant, Tettnang and Saaz hops. It comes in right around 6% ABV. And should be available this afternoon or evening (9-24-10).

Fest Devious Release #2 will be the first curve ball, as it will be a Harvest Ale, made with local fresh (wet) Columbus and Cascade hops from Tim at Salt Lake's High Desert Organic Hop Farm. It has a blend of Maris Otter and Briess base malts along with a Caramel and Munich malts. It will be released in about two weeks.

Release #3 to be another Marzen but very different from release number one. No set release date.

All of these beers are pretty limited as they are 10 barrel batches. And will sell for a reasonable $4.29 each.

A very nice Marzen. Quite drinkable, I want it on draft!

Amen Douglas! This is delicious. So many levels of malty. Too bad it wasn't ready for oktoberfest at snowbird. Maybe next year.
