In the beginning, there was nothing.
Then an impish brewer piled a ludicrous amount of the finest hops into a bottle and created Epic Pale Ale, the first step on the road to hoppiness.
Not content with his folly, the brewer wanted ever more, even Epic Mayhem did not sate his appetite for massive flavours.
This zymurgyical big bang is Epic Armageddon, an apocalyptic assault on every beer lover's pre-conceptions and taste buds.
It may be too huge for this fragile planet so enjoy this beer like it was the last one on Earth.
This series of videos explains the story behind the origins of Epic Armageddon I.P.A., The West Coast IPA Challenge, the reasons for putting Epic Armageddon I.P.A. into oak barrels, naming them Pete & Melissa before putting them onto the Interislander for a six week ocean voyage between the North & South Island of New Zealand (actually it is multiple sailings between the two islands three or four times a day) and then making the beer available to taste at Beervana, Wellington Town Hall, 28th & 29th August.

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
