EPIC Steak Announces New Proprietary House Beer
EPIC Steak, San Francisco’s waterfront steakhouse located on the scenic Embarcadero, announced the restaurant’s new proprietary beer, EPIC Proportions, an approachable IPA to pair with Executive Chef Parke Ulrich’s acclaimed cuisine. EPIC Steak’s Bar Manager, Nick Henry and his team, curated the partnership with popular San Francisco-based Barebottle Brewery to create EPIC Proportions, which is now available for $7 on draft on the restaurant’s menu and upstairs at Quiver Bar.
“We’re thrilled to debut EPIC Steak’s very own beer, and to have partnered with Barebottle in creating an IPA that pairs particularly well with our food menu,” says Pete Sittnick, managing partner for the steakhouse. “At EPIC Steak, we’re committed to supporting local businesses, as well as continually providing our guests with new and exciting offerings to make their dining experience exceptional.”
EPIC Proportions is made with late-addition, dry hops, including Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe, to create a robust hop flavor without the bitterness typical of most IPAs. These specific hops are all prized American hops, exclusively grown in the Pacific Northwest. Barebottle Brewery utilized approximately 2.8 pounds of hops per barrel for this specific beer, a significant increase from that of most IPAs, hence resulting in “epic proportions.” The flavor profile includes bold citrus and fruit flavors and hints of pine aromatics. The beer is crystal clear with a golden copper hue and is exceptionally dry, resembling a true West Coast-style IPA. Guests of the restaurant are encouraged to enjoy EPIC Proportions as a part of the restaurant’s BBB special—beer, burger and brownie—offered daily.
Additionally, the new proprietary beer will have its official debut at the Epic Proportions IPA Release Party during SF Beer Week on Monday, February 13. The event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at Barebottle Brewery, located at 1525 Cortland Ave in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights district.
