Epic Flavour

It reflected the way I like to brew beer. I like to have big aromas, flavours and taste in the beers.

Epic Challenge

To start a new beer brand in this day and age, in a mature market, dominated by multinationals with huge resources, and the public perception that beer is a low value commodity, is a big challenge.

Epic Lager                                          330ml                    5.0%

Imagine a world without flavour. 
It'd be almost as bad as a world without beer.
Well you're in luck.
This lager is literally bursting with hop-fuelled taste.
It's been created by people inspired and obsessed with keeping the flame alive. Enjoy our handiwork!


Epic Pale ale                               330ml/500ml                  5.4%

You can only drink so many beers in a lifetime, so you better make each one count.
That's where we can help. Because at Epic we're obessed with creating big hop-fuelled beers.
This takes a shed-load of skill. It also takes a shed-load of hops.
In fact there are 23 crammed into this bottle.
Many brewers would call that 'insane'. 
We call it flavour.




Epic Armageddon IPA                      500ml                     6.6%

The answer to everything.

In the beginning, there was nothing. 
Then an impish brewer piled a ludicrous amount of hops into a batch of beer. 
his zymurgical big bang is Epic Armageddon, an apocalyptic assault on your preconceptions and taste buds. It may be too huge for this fragile planet so enjoy this beer like it was the last one on Earth

Epic Hop Zombe IIPA                    500ml                         8.5% 


Hops have taken over the world. 
Permeated the senses of the minions. Hop Zombies now roam the streets. Lupulin ichor oozing from ravaged legions. Gorging, gouging, masticating. 
Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. 

Join the HopZombie Revolution.


Epic Fig & Coffee Imperial Oatmeal Stout   750ml        8.0%

The Epicurean series is a celebration of the flavours and aromas that can be found within the diverse range of ingredients that brewers and chefs alike use in their creations. 
This beer is a culmination of hours of cerebration, experimentation, ocgitation and libation. And a sprinkling of dehydrated finesse
