Epic is a brewing company based in Auckland, New Zealand. The beers are brewed under contract at local brewery Steam Brewing Company that also brews the beers for the Auckland chain of taverns Cock & Bulls.
Epic was founded by Luke Nicholas in 2006. I am hoping to meet Luke so he can tell me his story, visit his brewing facilities and tell the secres of his beers. So report coming soon, watch this space…
Epic beers are famousfor their balance, and most-often their full-on hoppy characters. Over the years, they have won an impressive number of awards (see list on epicbeer.com) and are some of the most beloved brews in and from New Zealand.
Their classic lighter-style beers are Epic Pale Ale and Lager, while Armageddon and Hop Zombie are popular extraordinarily heavily hopped brews. The brewer also makes a variety of uniquely-characterful seasonal or one-off beers including Mayhem, Zythos, Mash Up, Comet and many more. Complete review of the range coming soon, but let’s start with the followings:
