There’s something in the air today. Airborne disease? Probably. Pollution? Definitely — but there’s also something less tangible. Maybe it’s the godforsaken time change that turns early afternoon into pitch-black night for those of us living north of the 37th parallel.
Maybe it’s existential dread hanging over all of our heads like poorly (and prematurely) hung misletoe — inviting us in for a germ-filled kiss of death to kick off the holiday season. Or maybe it’s just a head cold.
For the previous 10 years, Epic Brewing of Utah and Colorado produces Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout, a stout aged in whiskey barrels with added cacao nibs and coffee. It is a delightful beer, the ingredient flavors are recognizable, and it is high in ABV at 11.7%. Since 2016, Epic Brewing each year produces variants with this year’s batch showing fulfilling and fun achievements.
To start, the just-released 2021 line-up features six variants: Naked Baptist, In The Rye, Black Forest Cake, Double Barrel, Double Jam and Chocolate Mint. All are available across retail partners across Colorado starting September 30 and customers are able to order online for pick up from September 30 – October 11.
Most people in the country are a month or more into social distancing and stay at home orders, and have completely lost track of time and social norms. Is it acceptable to have a coffee stout at breakfast? Or a beer at lunch when working from home? I think we all know the answers to these questions, but as cabin fever and the groundhog day effect sets in, people start venturing into the unknown to save their sanity and prevent complete boredom. Good luck to everyone out there—stay safe, stay healthy and support your local breweries! This is What We’re Drinking.

My boyfriend and I are planning on hitting multiple breweries on our road trip up and sharing that sweet California craft beer with them!

For the fifth year in a row, Epic Brewing’s Denver Taproom will host its infamous 50 Firkin Fiasco this Thursday, October 5. The annual event has turned into a fan favorite for GABF goers, visiting brewers and anyone who likes tasting creative twists on super solid beers.
The more time I spend on Twitter, the more I think I need therapy. Luckily, I got to hide in the relative safety of my beer feed. There aren’t any political posts in there. Wait… What’s that? No… no, please don’t! I’ll do anything. Just don’t retweet that… I’ll be in the corner in the fetal position, and this is The Weekly Buzz.
PorchDrinking season is officially upon us! Our nearest stellar body is pouring it’s warming countenance upon us, and it is glorious. It is important that you all show the utmost respect during this holy time of year. Dust of the adirondack chairs, oil the chain on the porch swing, and get the dead leaves out of the horseshoe pits. It’s summer, and this is What We’re Drinking.
Another Great American Beer Festival has come and gone, and looking back at the festival, and the week of events that accompanied the festival it’s sad to think we have to wait a full year for it come around again. My week of beer-centric events started with Epic Brewing’s 4th annual 50 Firkin Fiasco.
Of all the events going on during the Great American Beer Festival, there are only a handful that truly showcase something unique, distinct, and rare. Such is the case with tonight’s Epic Brewing 50 Firkin Fiasco which celebrates the greatness of one-off single barrel firkins.
When I stopped at the Utah state-owned liquor store last night after a day on the slopes, the label of Epic Brewing’s Pfeifferhorn Lager stood out, what with its powder-covered peak imagery. Named after the 11,326 foot Pfeifferhorn Peak, a.k.a Little Matterhorn, which overlooks the Salt Lake Valley, this beer’s label proclaims that its namesake’s “craggy summit lures hikers and skiers year round.”
