Today is the first day since June of 2006 (Zion Canyon) that a brand new brewery has brewed beer in the state of Utah.
By the time most of you read this Epic Brewing Company's brewhouse will be online making their first beer. Their first beer brewed will be a yet-to-be-named India Pale Ale. The first of three different IPA's to be exact.
An interesting fact about Epic is that this will be the first brewery since before Prohibition; a Utah brewery will be making beers only above the 4.0% abv mark. Pretty F'n cool, huh?!
These will obviously be all bottled beers and will be primarily sold from the brewery's in house store located on State Street in Salt Lake City. Bars and properly licensed restaurants may also be selling the new brews.
The plan is to open the store in mid-May with and debut with nine different labels. That could change between now and then.
Congrats to Peter, Dave & Kevin. Brilliant!
