A-Epic is located in the gentrifying area north of downtown known as RiNo. The tasting space is pretty good-sized and step above most breweries from an architectural perspective. There is a fire place and two couches to lounge on, a few community tables, a lengthy bar, and a smallish patio. The crowd and vibe are hip, but not quite hipster...perhaps because Epic's beers are not rare enough for the true hipsters.

Q-All of the beers on tap are Epic offerings, which is OK by me, since I think Epic does some pretty good work (see Elder Brett, for example). There is nothing mind-blowing, but even if you aren't into Big Bad Baptist, Epic has a solid line-up.

Ser-The servers were friendly, prompt, and could describe the beers they were slinging. We had multiple taster pours, which were on the small side. One pet-peeve was the taster glasses, which were shaped a bit like mini-shaker pint glasses. If you're pouring Belgian-style beers, imperial stouts and the like, couldn't you spring for some mini-tulips or something a bit nicer?

Sel-The selection is decent-sized, like 20 beers, but if you were looking for guest beers, you're out of luck. Fortunately, Epic offers a wide line-up that has something for every palate from light saisons to the aforementioned Baptist stout.

V-The tasters were two bucks, which is well within reason for RiNo/downtown neighborhood. The full-sized beers varied in price, but again, all were reasonable.

O-Epic is worth a stop if you're looking for a nice place to drink beer. There is nothing mind-blowing here, but the place is comfortable, the beers are interesting, and the service is pretty good.

A beautiful, sleek, very modern interior, very well-lit. There was a sizable crowd, though everyone had a seat, when we got there about 45 minutes before closing on a Wednesday night, so that was a good sign.
Tons of options to select from, they had what looked like a forty-foot wall (probably a lot less, this wasn't my first stop of the night) of taps. They also had a lot of different options for sampling exactly what you wanted to try, so that was much appreciated. Near the entrance is a huge cooler with a lot of take-home options, which I grabbed a couple from.
Beers were kind of hit or miss, but when they hit, they were excellent. Staff was very helpful, knew their product well.

A bit overcrowded and understaffed. The beer selection was solid though, with some rarities that I hadn't tired already through their wide distribution.

After visiting Epic's brother brewery in Salt Lake, I had no idea what I was in for so I expected a similar atmosphere. The two places couldn't be more different, with the Denver location being a large place, with a larger menu, and a wider selection. Felt much more upscale than the cozy Salt Lake one. When I was there, there was a food truck out front with some of the best chicken tenders I'd ever had. Busy place, fun atmosphere, good beer.

I was hoping to be more impressed. I felt like i had tried most everything in the tasting room already. Probably would have been more WOW'd if we hadn't gone to Crooked Stave first

A: Lively, large space was quite full on Saturday afternoon
Q: I was there to sample, so I took on all 25. Certainly impressive to have 25 samplers lined up in front of you. A few were misses for me, a couple stood out but most were in the middle meaning they didn't stand out. Only finished a handful of them which was my overall measure of quality.
S: Good but nothing stood out. Sat at the bar, ordered, they lined up the beers, provided water and wafers, paid the $40 or so for the sampler. I will say I appreciated being able to place one order as opposed to others that want to pass them out at 4 or 5 at a time.
Sel: 25 on tap and all available for the sampler or otherwise. Not sure you can ask for more than that.
V: Price for the sample was comparable to most places.
O: Good overall, would have rated higher if some of the beers had really separated themselves from the others.
