Three years past and those 7 beers were still in a box in my basement. This had moved beyond wanting to plan something special and worthy of a project spanning nearly a decade. I was an Epic failure on the Epic party planning front. These beers needed to go! Needed to go into my belly! There's no way I'm taking on a solo vertical tasting of these beers. That would mean either dumping beer or trying to drink upwards of 2 1/2 gallons beer. I don't mind dumping a taster at a festival, but not a 22 and I'm surely not drinking to lethal BAC.
Starting up...An Epic 7 days
Over the next 7 nearly consecutive days I had one Epic beer a night, paired with an episode or 2 of Scandal, because just like beer I'm several years behind on TV. While originally I had plans of a grand vertical tasting with notes and comparisons of beer, I just sipped and enjoyed these beers.
