Utah is undergoing a craft beer renaissance. Slowly but surely, arcane laws left on the books since prohibition are being repealed, and great brew has come back to the masses.  One of the most innovative breweries to come out of this boom is Epic Brewing, and we at Pint Defiance have the distinct honor of hosting the Tacoma launch party. Come help us welcome them to the Evergreen State.
