The newest forthcoming addition to Epic Brewing’s Exponential Series will be Brainless on Raspberries. Much like the rest of the Brainless portion of the series, the base of this beer is their award-winning Brainless Belgian golden ale and then raspberries will be added with the final product aged in wine barrels.
So far the other two in the series, Braineless on Cherries and Brainless on Peaches, have a wonderfully fruity and tart finish so expect the same with this batch. Only a few thousand bottles of these beers are released so grab a few when you see them!
Epic Brewing (Salt Lake City, UT) will open a second brewery in Denver, Colorado. The new facility will be be focused on producing the Exponential Series and Elevated Series of beers. Look for the new, nearly 20,000 square foot facility to be open in April, 2013.

Double Skull Doppelbock Release #1
Brewed on November 18, 2011. Packaged December 20, 2011.
This style is orginally brewed as a “liquid bread” by fasting monks. A Doppelbock is rich, filling, strong lager. Our version is a warm reddish brown with an aroma of perserved fruit and dark toasted bread. This beer has six different malts and enough noble hops to balance but leave a malt-forward finish. Double Skull is both restrained and insistant. The carmel flavors are best sipped in cold weather but leave a nice lager finish.
Hops: Premiant, Tettnang, Perle
Malts: Muntons Maris Otter, Weyermann Pilsner, Bonlander Munich Malt Briess, Breiss aromatic malt, Weyermann CaraMunich II and Carafa III
Availability: 22oz bombers
