As you may know, I am the new brewer for Epic Brewing Company Denver. (YAY!) For those in the Colorado Front Range and in my house, we’ve been impatiently awaiting the grand opening of the new Epic taproom, located on the corner of 30th and Walnut, in the River North District. If you and your beer-loving friends and family would like to attend the opening, which will be quite grand, check out the press release below. It will give all of the details you need to enjoy some of the best beer in the Front Range. I’ll be the lady brewer in the Epic shirt! Come find me.
Denver, CO, September 16 – Epic Brewing announces the opening weekend at its Denver Taproom, located at 3001 Walnut St. Denver, Colorado. Doors will open at noon on Saturday September, 28th. The 1,400 square foot taproom adjoining the brewery will feature 25 Epic beers on tap, with limited release firkins and nitro beers on a rotating basis.
Directly off the brewery, the taproom offers a comfortable, neighborhood atmosphere, reflecting the RiNo’s industrial character and a refined design that embraces the unique character of the beautiful bow truss building. Guests are greeted in the space with a large cold case containing 22oz bottles to go. A large selection of Epic’s beer portfolio is offered on tap, ranging from tasters and pints to growler fills.
“Our vision for the taproom is a place where people can hang out, socialize, enjoy and discuss beer, and always encounter something new and fresh,” explains Dave Cole, Epic’s Co-Founder. “Denver is a beer destination and the taproom is a great opportunity for us to showcase our brewery.”
On Saturday, September 28th at 11:00 am, Bubba Dukes BBQ will be dishing up delicious BBQ and portabella sandwiches.
