SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Every year, Epic Brewing Company sets aside some of its best-tasting barrels to make a special blend for Big Bad Baptist Reserve, and the 2022 rendition is Bigger & Badder than ever.
Epic Brewing sourced a mix of bourbon barrels and single malt barrels from Vapor Distilling in Boulder, Colorado to make Big Bad Baptist Reserve 2022. “This year’s barrels were spectacular, so we opted for a low chocolate and coffee addition in order to let the barrel character shine through,” said Jordan Schupbach, Head of Operations.
The bourbon barrels contribute a deep oak characteristic with subtle notes of vanilla and caramel, while the single-malt barrels contribute a mild but recognizable peated smokiness. Fewer than 600 cases of this rare release will be produced.
Big Bad Baptist Reserve 2022will be available at Epic Brewing Company this May with a limited amount distributed to select states. Enjoy one now and set one aside for a special occasion.
