Epicwas founded by Luke Nicholas in 2006 when craft beer was still in its infancy.
He first encountered big and bold craft beers in the States and wondered why there wasn't something similar in New Zealand. After much pestering and weekend loitering at his localbrewery, he eventually landed a job and quickly went on to become head brewer when the vacancy opened up.
In 2008, shortly after startingEpic, Luke createdEpicArmageddon, New Zealand's first American style IPA which has gone on to become New Zealand's most awarded beer. The range ofEpicbeers continues to expand, bringing big aromatic hoppy brews to a multitude of happy New Zealanders.
