Epic's 2016 Sour Brainless on Peaches

Lovers of Epic's Sour Brainless on Peaches, rejoice! A very limited run on the fruity wild ale will be going on sale. This year's release is primarily a blend of sour wort from Epic's Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces foeders brewed in October of 2014 and cellared onto peaches last June. During the final blend, 5 casks from our original 2013 blend were added which is just over 20% of the total volume. The final blend is comprised of 80% 15 month casks and 20% 30 month casks. This release is very limited with less than 5000 bottles produced.

This spring Epic purchased 9 foeders from Napa Valley with a total capacity of 620 barrels, significantly increasing its cellar capacity to a total 12 foeders and just under 700 dedicated sour oak casks. Several new sour projects have already made their way into the wood and will be releasing in the coming months.

The beer will be release at the Denver Taproom on Thursday 4/21. The event is not ticketed and is free to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to sample the beer on draft and tour the cellar to learn more about the souring process. Guests can even wax dip their own bottles.

The Salt Lake City brewery will release a limited Hand Bottled run on Saturday, April 23rd of about 150 - 22oz. bottles. These Bottles will go on sale at 10:00 am with a limit of ONE per person.

Cheers!
