Epic @ Galbraith's

Epic Lager will be on tap next week at Galbraith's Alehouse. This week after delivery it was found the beer line from the keg to the bar had been cut off and used for something else. Don't worry they'll get around to hooking up some new tubing, maybe on Monday or Tuesday.

If you do go along for an Epic Lager and it isn't flowing yet, you can always be assured that the Epic Pale Ale is on offer.

NZ brewer going it alone

One of New Zealand's top beer brewers is going it alone. Multi-award winner Luke Nicholas has bought the Epic Brewing Company and with it the Epic brand, from his now former employer the Steam Brewing Company.

Nicholas is planning to take Epic worldwide, after it won best in class at last year's BrewNZ International Beer Awards. It also claimed a silver medal this year, behind another of his beers, Monk's Habit, a Steam Brewing Company product. Epic Mayhem was awarded bronze.

Nicholas says he will be taking Epic to the world in measured steps. The first is the launch of Epic Lager in February next year.
