Epochal brewery makes beer with a sense of place. Whether through use of local barley, unique house microflora, our special Scottish water, the impact of climate on the ageing process or inspiration drawn from local brewing traditions, Epochal beer is particular to Scotland and to the brewery itself.
All of Epochal’s beer is fermented with our house Saccharomyces culture in open fermenters before a long, slow fermentation in wood with our house Brettanomyces strains. This process creates inimitable, complex, delicious flavours which were once common in Scottish beer.
They’ve teamed up with our guys at Shilling to produce a tap takeover you’ll love. Check out the beer bio down below.
