Epic’s interpretation of the recent trend of Black IPAs, the Santa Cruz Brown Ale is a true hybrid. For this beer we combine the rich backbone and color of a brown ale with the robust American hops common in IPAs to create something totally unique. This a dark beer for hop lovers. Join us at Slackwater Pub and Pizzeria in Ogden Utah on January 19 to celebrate the release of this beer.
