SALT LAKE CITY — Epic Brewing is releasing RiNo APA, a Juicy American Pale Ale starting this March. Their latest year-round can offering is inspired by what Epic has learned brewing New England-Style IPAs as well as the creativity and artistic passion they see in the River North neighborhood (RiNo) that is the home of their Denver brewery.
“When we opened our brewery in 2013 the neighborhood was already buzzing with creative freedom and we were instantly drawn to its infectious energy. I see RiNo APA as a tribute to that venturing spirit. We’ve been fortunate to be involved with such a dedicated and hardworking community,” said Epic Co-Founder David Cole.
RiNo APA is the reimagining of RiNo Pale Ale, one of the first beers Epic brewed to season their Denver brewhouse. It’s updated with loads of juicy, late-addition, Centennial and Mosaic hops, just a bit of haze to soften the mouth-feel and a bright burst of colorful tropical aromas.
The beer will be launching in a newly redesigned 12oz can inspired by the multitude of murals decorating the neighborhood. The initial launch will be in mid-March with full national distribution coming online through April. It will be available year-round on draft and in cans.
“RiNo APA pushes and perhaps breaks the boundaries of the American Pale Ale Style. We wanted to make something juicy, hoppy and yet, approachable. This is a beer you can drink a lot of that still doesn’t compromise or let up on flavor. This is definitely going to be my go-to beer in 2018 ,” said National Sales Manager Darin McGregor. “And our approach to production and distribution will ensure that this beer pulls fast, fresh and delicious through the market.”
