DENVER, CO — One of Colorado’s favorite collaboration brews is back for the fourth year. Strangely Epic, a blend of two infamous beers from Strange Craft Beer Company and Epic Brewing, is now available in limited bombers across Colorado and at Strange Craft’s tasting room.
Strangely Epic is a blend of Strange Craft’s tart fruit explosion Cherry Kriek and Epic Brewing’s monster imperial stout Big Bad Baptist. The result is a complex journey through coffee, chocolate, and cherries. This beer was first created in 2013 for Denver’s Collaboration Fest. It was crafted at both breweries, and accordingly named Strangely Epic and Epically Strange respectively for where each beer was brewed and blended.
Strange Craft and Epic Brewing both opened in 2010, and owners and head brewers Tim Myers and Kevin Crompton became fast industry friends. “Tim is a brother from another mother,” says Epic Brewmaster Kevin Crompton. “We have so many things in common— similar approaches to our beer problem solving, similar creativity— this collaboration happened really organically.”
“Strangely Epic was one of our first collaborations” says Tim Myers. “Kevin and I weren’t really sure how Cherry Kriek would stand up to Big Bad Baptist, and we had a lot of fun figuring out the right ratio.”
Bombers of Strangely Epic will be available in limited quantities across Colorado, and at Strange Craft’s tasting room where the beer will be served on tap while supplies last.
ABOUT STRANGE CRAFT BEER COMPANY
When Strange Craft Beer Co. opened just south of Denver’s Mile High Stadium in May 2010, it was the first nanobrewery in the city brewing one barrel of beer at a time. Strange has since become a destination spot for Colorado beer drinkers and taken home multiple awards, including two Great American Beer Festival medals and two World Beer Cups. Despite expansion to a 10 BBL brewhouse, owners Tim and Marni Myers are committed to small batches and nod to their nano roots with One Barrel Wednesdays for experimental brews.
