•Salt Lake City’s Epic Brewing is set to increase its brewery capacity by 33%. Epic’s expansion will include the installation of two 80-barrel fermentation tanks, as well as an 80-barrel and 20-barrel brite tank. The new additions bring the brewer to a total of 18 fermentation tanks and 5 brite tanks, with capacity now expected to total 15,000 barrels a year. Established in 2008 by David Cole and Peter Erickson, Epic Brewing has six core brands in its Classic Series, as well as a variety of specialty offerings in its Elevated Series and Exponential Series. Epic’s beers are currently distributed in 12 states and Washington, D.C.
•Denver, Colorado-based Wynkoop Brewing Co. has released 1892 Artesian Lager, a special edition beer commemorating the 120th anniversary of the city’s iconic Brown Palace Hotel & Spa. Made with water from an underground aquifer that supplies Brown Palace, the retro-inspired offering is brewed with two-row malts and pilsner-style hops, resulting in “a cross between a late 1800s steam-style beer and a modern cream ale.” The 4%-abv beer will be available on draft at the Wynkoop brewpub and Brown Palace’s Ship Tavern. 1892 Artesian Lager is the second specialty beer Wynkoop has created for Brown Palace, following last year’s launch of Rooftop Honey Saison. Founded in 1988 by current Colorado governor John Hickenlooper, Wynkoop also produces the Rail Yard Ale, B3K Black Lager and Silverback Pale Ale labels, among others.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
