Epic Brewing Holds 2nd Annual 50 Firkin Fiasco – October 2, 2014
Denver, CO, September 16th – To celebrate the Denver Brewery’s first anniversary and The Great American Beer Festival, Epic Brewing is hosting a special event on October 2nd. Epic Brewing’s Second Annual 50 Firkin Fiasco will feature fifty unique cask beers that highlight the brewery’s beer portfolio and the creativity of its brewers and cellar staff.
This year the full event will be open to the public from 2:00 – 7:00 pm. Tickets are $25.00 and include a 7oz tasting glass. The first 100 people through the door will also receive a “50 Firkin Fiasco” t-shirt. Tickets are available through Imbibe Denver and at https://50firkins.nightout.com. The brewing staff will be on hand to discuss the beers as participants explore the brewery. Food vendors will also be onsite during the event providing lunch and dinner.
“We’ve pulled off this event before without its namesake coming true, but that doesn’t mean it’s not exciting – they’re a ton of fun with unique beers that won’t be seen anywhere else. If you’re looking for rare beer during GABF, this is where you need to be,” says Kevin Crompton, Epic’s Brewmaster.
Some of the firkins that will be on tap include: Santa Cruz Brown Ale with toasted oak and whole leaf Chinook hops, Mid Mountain Mild Ale with cascara coffee cherries, Hopulent IPA with sweet orange peel, 825 State Stout with Novo Coffee “Finca Cilladiana” blend, Hop Syndrome Lager with coriander and Capt’n Crompton’s Pale ale with whole leaf Cascade hops and grapefruit.
“We already produce over 40 styles of beer on a regular basis at Epic and this event brings us to 90 plus. We always have something new going on and that’s a good time for everyone.” explains David Cole, Epic’s Co-Founder.
