I remember having a quiet pint with Mr Patterson and him telling me about this Orcon beer and that it was still a secret.
Awesome to see the secret's out. Look forward to trying a pint.

Great evening! Caught up with my son for first time in a few weeks. Epic would be pleased to know that after our free beers (I posted on Facebook, and he commented on my post = two beers) I paid more than I usually would for another 500 ml Epic that we shared. Very nice beer!
Thanks for enabling it Mauricio!
