Epic Brewing in Denver to release three beers

Epic BrewingIt didn't take long for Epic Brewing of Utah to set up a new brewery in downtown Denver and now they're releasing the first three new beers from that facility. Here is a press release issued on July 17th describing the three new beers we can expect to see in bottles starting next week. We'll still have to wait a while longer before their new tasting room is open, but for now, at least we can try their Colorado-made brews.

[PRESS RELEASE] (Denver, CO) – Epic Brewing is pleased to announce on Monday July 22nd it will begin distributing from its newly established brewery in Denver, CO. Epic will be distributed by Elite Beverage and American Eagle Distributing to serve Denver and the entire state of Colorado. American Eagle covers distribution from Longmont to Fort Collins and Elite Beverage will distribute to Denver, Colorado SpringS, Boulder and the balance of the state.
