(Salt Lake City, UT) – Epic Brewing Co. reported on Thursday that the Salt Lake City Planning Commission will be reviewing the brewery’s re-zoning case next Wednesday. It was reported this summer that Epic and nearby locals disagreed with the company’s plan for expanding its facilities locally.
An Easter egg as part of that news is that production is up 100% “since 2011.” Epic produced nearly 4,500 barrels in 2011 so it looks like they’ll hit around 9,000 barrels in 2012, just their second full year.

Straight Up Saison, Belgian-Style Ale
The aroma is warm with spices and subtle hints of hay and tart fruit. Barley, oats and wheats provide a silky texture, which is balanced by generous carbonation.
Hop Syndrome Lager
German Pilsner Malt, American hops and American lager yeast give this beer a distinctly pleasing bitterness and hop aromas ranging from sweet tart to pine with a clean, crisp finish.
Barley Wine Ale will be back on the shelves on Friday, October 12th!
The first sip of this brilliant, red-brown beer reveals a robust mouth feel and complex flavors, including raisin, dark bread and some sherry, sure to increase with age.
