Epic Brewing Company - Denver Taproom says
A truly well-crafted beer is more than the sum of its parts – it captures the essence of a place and a season. The second release of Sour Brainless on Peaches blends seamlessly with the spring melt. It strikes a beautiful balance between earthy and woody undertones and delicate floral tones, painting a picture of an early blooming apricot tree.

It pours a hazy straw color with warm aromas of peach skin, apricot, and cellar earthiness. The initial sip is puckering, with sour citrus zest, stone fruit, and hints of strawberry sweetness; finishing with a mild, wet-hay funk that blends well with the woody quality of the oak. “The second release has a cleaner, polished profile from the first blend with a delicate finish that lifts quickly from the palate. I think it really captures the essence of the fruit,” said Kevin Crompton, Epic’s Brewmaster.

This year's release is primarily a blend of sour beer from our Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces foeders brewed in October of 2014 and cellared onto peaches last June. During the final blend, 5 casks from our original 2013 blend were added which is just over 20% of the total volume. The final blend is comprised of 80% 15 month casks and 20% 30 month casks. This release is very limited with less than 5000 bottles produced.

The beer will release at the Denver Taproom on Thursday 4/21. The event is not ticketed and is free to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to sample the beer on draft and purchase 375ml wax dipped bottles. Staff will be offering tours of the cellar and guests can even wax dip their own bottles.

The 1st 30 guests to order a full pour of Sour Brainless Peaches will receive a free spicy Korean pork flat won ton with pickled dicon slaw, This pairing is provided by 808 Fusion Grinz and it works great with a peach brew.
