One Beer Today. Apocalypse Tomorrow. Epidemic Ales was established in Concord August 2015 as a 10-barrel system brewery and taproom co-owned by 6 partners (3 couples). We brew a wide portfolio of beer with apocalyptic themes that are meant to be enjoyed as an everyday beer but are also exciting enough to toast big occasions, like the end of world, if need be. We aim to put Concord on the map as a craft beer town- the beer epidemic is spreading! We’re 50% women-owned, sell only local snacks in the taproom, and recycle all our wastewater back to the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) in our attempt to be a low-to no-waste brewery. You’ll find everything from Lager to IPA to Barrel-Aged Stout in our lineup.
