Because it is.
Tigers. Balls of Twine. Waimea Bay waves. Pyramids. Ohakune Carrots. Some things are meant to be big. Flavours. Aromas. Beer. The list is large but we think it should be bigger. There is a time and place for subtlety, for a delicate touch. This is not one of them. Turning the amplifier up to eleven? Yeah, that’s it.

Epic Brewing Company
So why 'EPIC'?
It reflected the way I like to brew beer. I like to have big aromas, flavours and taste in the beers.
To start a new beer brand in this day and age, in a mature market, dominated by multinationals with huge resources, and the public perception that beer is a low value commodity, is a big challenge.
Everyone that lives in New Zealand, or travelled here for a holiday, they at some point in their or their ancestors lives had to make an Epic Journey. Whether it be by canoe or commercial airliner they traveled a great distance to the end of the world to be in this beautiful country of New Zealand.www.epicbeer.com
