Really a brewery that happens to have a small bar area. You do need to order food to sample beer. I had a salad which was very fresh. Samples are great and include all offerings. Bottles for purchase in the front on the way out. Good option to try some great beer and buy a few for the road.

Cool spot and vibe, better than average beer and selection with some interesting sours in bottles to go and on tap. Waiters seemed annoyed to have to get us beer once or twice but chalking it up to being busy. Would go back.

Not a bad place. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to get dinner to enjoy the beer. The sales guy was really helpful, and it had a good selection.

What a great spot. They have to serve food to pour tastes (because of insane legislation perpetuated by the older Utah breweries) out of their own bottles, hence the 'tapless taproom'. The food is plenty tasty, served by the same person who pours your beer. Ben was very knowledgable about all aspects of the 27 beers (2 lagers and 25 ales!) they were pouring and made a mean sandwich. Bottles are for sale just feet away with really nice folks. Put all that together and you've got an overall unbeatable tasting experience, especially for Utah. Can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Very small tasting room, 5 or 6 chairs is all. Food is offered, but not tape shady are there for. Staff was friendly. Small gift and bottle shop too.

This place is cozy and friendly. Picked up some beer and the staff was nice, friendly and helpful. Even talked a little beer talk with them. Overall a good experience.

Ordering a beer in Utah is very difficult. You must order an entree to have a beer there however the food is pretty. They only pour of of bottle but have a large selection.

Don't go here thinking you'll get a drink here. With only 6 seats (and they can't serve you if you're not in a seat) it could be a very long wait til someone goes. Ok but not worth wait & folks weren't that helpful.

Tiny little taproom with about 6 seats. Must order food if you plan to taste or order some beers. Service was great, the caprese sandwich even better. Would definitely suggest hitting up Epic on a rainy day. If you are coming from Denver, don't expect this Epic to be the slightest bit familiar in terms of atmosphere. The Denver Epic is completely different.

This is sort of a strange place to try and quantify. it is right in the heart of salt lake city, but until recently, was just a place to buy beer, not consume it on site, due to the odd Utah laws. to combat this, they put a panini press in the back room, and required you to get a sandwich if you wanted to have a beer. a clever subversion of the law, but an annoyance really. the front is glass cooler full of bottles, and I have to say ive never had an epic brew that didn't wow me in some way. they do a lot of interesting fruited beers, and are artists with yeast, so I really admire their craft, but this probably isn't the best place to introduce yourself to their stuff. it was crowded and sort of lacking feel, a place much more about making and selling beer out the door than serving it there, which is okay, especially given the context of Utah law. I always try and stop in for a few bottles when I am in town though, they always have something interesting bottled up. epic is pushing the envelope, and until their beers get wider distribution, you almost have to go to the source for them. the big bad Baptist alone is worth the trip and a subpar grilled sandwich!
