Taste All 5 Vintages of Epic Ale From Now Defunct Roots Organic Brewery

Roots Epic Ale

For a number of years Roots Organic brewery founder Craig Nicholls held annual vertical tastings of his big holiday ale at his Southeast Portland brewpub. Oregon’s first certified all-organic brewery showcases one last tasting of these five emboldened brews side-by-side at Portland’s premier bottleshop and tasting room, Belmont Station on Tuesday December 21, 2010 beginning at 5PM. This makes perfect sense since Roots has always unveiled new vintages of the Epic on the winter solstice. It’s bold ABV around 14% is enough to cut through the coldest winter chill and brighten the darkest and dreariest days of the year. With the Roots brewpub longer in existence, original founder Craig will be Belmont’s special guest as he taps every vintage (2005 through 2009) of Roots Epic ale for the final time. Belmont Station owner Carl Singmaster says “This is truly the last draft available of several of these vintages. We will serve flights of all five side by side.” Truly Epic!
