Epic Pale Ale is brewed at Steam Brewing Company, 186 James Fletcher Drive, Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand. Steam Brewing Company started in October 1995 and was the brewery operation behind the original Cock & Bull brewpub. As the company grew and more pubs opened a larger brewery was purchased (previously Auckland Breweries). The capacity was large and the idea of creating a stand alone bottled beer brand separate from the Cock & Bull beers was proposed by me in late 2004. 2005 was the brand creation and recipe development year, and an official launch in 2006 after the winning of Supreme Champion Beer. October 2007 I purchased the Epic brand from Steam Brewing Company and we have a manufacturing agreement to continue production of Epic at Steam.
