4.07/5  rDev -3.1%

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.

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.

Atmosphere - spacious, plenty of seating at the tables and at the bar. No patio and the place was really warm inside (to be fair, it was about 97degrees that day).
Quality - tried 4 different beers (the Hop Head flight; Escape, Hopulent and Imperial, and purchased a bomber of the Belgian IPA to take home); good to outstanding, and I didn't even try the BBB, which I will no doubt try next time!
Service - this particular bar keep was very friendly and helpful; refilled water in a timely manner and offered palate cleansing wafers with my flight.
Selection - 25 taps of their own beer; I had 4 and I left wanting to try at least 4-5 more; so I'd give that a fat thumbs up!
Food - didn't try, but they have rotating food trucks.
Value - wish their growler fills were a touch cheaper, but the bomber and 6 pack cooler make up for that! I was told this place was excellent, and I wasn't disappointed!
