Escape Artist (Salt Lake City, UT) – Epic Brewing is kicking of 2019 by returning the first beer brewed at its Denver brewery with bright new look and a bold hoppy-citrus recipe. Epic Escape to Colorado IPA is a 6.2% ABV India Pale Ale with an unfiltered body and an intensified hop bill.
Port City Celebrates Eight Award-Winning Years In The Biz (Alexandria, VA) – Port City Brewing is celebrating its eighth anniversary by doubling down on a classic!

A Beer Rose (Paso Robles, CA) – Firestone Walker is tapping into the region’s rich winemaking heritage with a one-of-a-kind brew co-fermented with local Paso Robles wine grapes that’s also the company’s newest year-round. With its classic scales of justice can artwork depicting the beer’s balance of grape and grain, Firestone Walker Rosalie is a super-drinkable 5% ABV hybrid that Brewmaster Matt Brynildson is calling a “rosé lover’s beer.”
