The Annex by Epic Brewing has completed the installation of their new seven barrel (217) gallon
brew house and has finally begun brewing.
If you haven't been by the Annex yet, the brew house is situated in the basement of the restaurant with an open section near the entrance, where patrons can view down into the brewery. The two kettle system was specifically designed to fit the available space and provide the flexibility needed to brew a wide range of beers styles.
Some of the initial beers produced at The Annex will be house-only draft beers. The lineup will include an American Golden Ale that will showcase individual hops, including newly developed varieties such as lemon drop. A classic Oatmeal Stout that will be dispensed on nitro and an aggressively hopped Belgian Saison. “The Annex brew house provides a unique opportunity to experiment with very small batches and explore the variety within a beer style,” says Brewmaster Kevin Crompton.
These new beers will be available on draft for the New Year along with Epic's full portfolio of Utah made beers.
Stay tuned there's an interesting new offering coming from Epic Brewing in the coming days that will completely arouse your inner beer geek.
