New! Epica beer!
You may wonder how a Dutch metal band ended up collaborating with an Ypres-based brewery. Actually, it's hardly a coincidence: the band's guitarist Isaac Delahaye hails from Ypres.
Epica is a ‘symphonic metal band’ and was founded about 20 years ago. In this time, they succeeded in becoming one of the most popular bands in the Low Countries, across all music genres. Since then, they have effortlessly outgrown the niche in which they started out in terms of their name and fame, becoming an international act that performs for audiences of more than 2,000 every night.
Epica has released eight full albums, selling one million albums worldwide. Their last full album ‘Omega’ was released in February 2021, entering the Top 10 album charts in Germany, Belgium and their home country the Netherlands. Since then, the band has performed over 1,000 shows in more than 60 countries, on all continents. In all corners of the globe, from Sydney to Rio de Janeiro and from Los Angeles to Tokyo, tickets for their club shows sell out in no time at all. They are popular headliners at festivals such as Pinkpop (NL), Graspop (BE), Hellfest (FR), Wacken (DE), Hell & Heaven Festival (MX), Dowload Festival (GB) and Heavy Montréal (CA), always guaranteeing audiences a spectacular show.
Epica is easy to drink, with a silky-soft mouthfeel (5.4% alc. vol), combining tropical fruit aromas with a mild hoppy fragrance, making it a really good thirst-quencher.
