Epic Pale Ale – Latest Review from

April 29th, 2007 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

mgbridges (1), England Apr 24, 2007 HOPS!!! The label on this beer promises them, and it delivers them by the bucketload. Oodles of bitterness but backed up by a fruity undercurrent. Very refreshing and cleansing. Would be interesting to try this with rich foods. Aroma: 8/10 Appearance: 4/5 Flavor: 10/10 Palate: 5/5 Overall: 17/20

Epic Seen On TV3 News

April 24th, 2007 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

On Friday night there was a news story on TV3 talking about Coke distributing beer brands, Miller and Peroni in New Zealand. In the closing shot of the story they scan a walking in beer fridge and the shot ends with Epic center shot. Can’t miss that bold packaging. “Thanks camera guy at TV3. I’ll shout you an Epic if we ever meet.” Watch Story Now [I didn’t actually see this live, but have had a couple of people make comment about seeing Epic on TV, so I thought I would share it with those that missed it] Cheers Luke

Epic Pale Ale on a Google Map

April 18th, 2007 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

To answer our number one question – “so where can I buy some Epic Pale Ale” I have created an online map, using the newly released Google Maps tool. And it’s a bunch easier to use than our previous map. So here it is. MAP! It is only up to date for the greater Auckland region but by the weekend I hope to get the rest of the country up to date with Epic outlets. This will make it easier to find your closest Epic Pale Ale retailer. Cheers Luke

On the Hop – Glenngarry

April 15th, 2007 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

[during the month of April, Epic Pale Ale is on special at all Glengarry stores] from their newsletter April 2007 “Created by Steam Brewing Company, who started in Auckland’s Cock and Bull pub and grew monumentally, acquiring the Auckland Brewery premises and a rep for fabbo NZ beers, of which this Homeric lager is but one. Their aim is to make the ‘biggest beers possible’ from the four trad ingredients; blood, sweat, tears and venture capital. Nope, water, hops malt, yeast. The Pale Ale is so popular it’s blushing, while this addition to the blockbuster brewery range will no doubt cement their rep further. Fresh, fully-flavoured, weighty and drinkable, it’s grand, Herculean, indeed monumental. Course.”
