Meet the Brewer: Upslope Brewing Co.
Thurs. June 12 | 7pm | Pay-per-pint
Front Range BBQ | 2330 W. Colorado Ave
Upslope Brewing Company is known in Colorado for beers brewed with exceptional quality you can drink while enjoying all of our great Colorado outdoor activities.
Like many Boulder-based businesses, sustainability is key, and Upslope has never shied away from it. They have canned from the start, and recently have partnered up with Superior EcoTech to install an algae farm on the roof of their building helping reuse their emissions.
Beer-wise, it’s always what’s inside the can that excites us: standards like Craft Lager and Pale Ale and tallboy-canned Imperial IP, but also the wildly popular Pumpkin ale and the brand new Thai Style White IPA.
We’ve been working hard getting things in place for this awesome Meet the Brewer event on June 12th at Front Range BBQ.
Joining us that evening will be their brewer, Sam, who will talk about the beer that they make, Upslope’s role in the craft beer industry, and any other cool happenings that Upslope is a part of.
Upslope/Barrels and Bottles “Stanky Leg” Sour Mash Extra Pale Ale
We brought the Barrels and Bottles crew up from Golden to collaborate on this sour mashed extra pale ale. We started with a mash of wheat and premium pils and inoculated it with Lactobacillus Delbrueckii. Hopped with Cascade, Centennial, Belma(c) and an experimental hop blend from Australia- Orbit(c). With an assertive acidic character, and floral and blueberry aromas, this beer will challenge the palate of even the most experienced craft beer connoisseurs.
Drawing from the classic and increasingly popular French style, Upslope Saison is made with premium white wheat and pilsner malt and hopped with English Fuggles. Fermented using classic saison yeast at high temperature brings unique peppery and floral notes. With a dry and acidic finish this beer provides unparalleled refreshment and taste.
Upslope Galactic Pale Ale Firkin
The one and only Upslope Pale Ale dry hopped with Australian Galaxy Hops. The light body of the Upslope Pale Ale will let the rich Passionfruit notes of the Galaxy hops shine.
Color (deep orange)
Hand picked baby bear pumpkins go into each batch so you get an all out pumpkin experience. Gold medal winner at Great American Beer Festival in its category.
Belgian-Style Pale Ale
Color: Sun Yellow
Aroma: Banana, Semi-Sweet
Wonderfully deceptive, this light bodied Belgian-Style Ale is full of flavor with an alcoholic kick. Trappist Ale yeast provides fruity esters that are balanced out with coriander on the finish. Bronze medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival in the 2009 Pro/Am Competition.
Aroma: Crisp malt, subtle Saaz hops
100% all malt, premium American lager. The perfect companion for a fishing trip, float down the river, or whatever your day throws at you. Smooth, easy drinking, crisp finish, available in a can. 1% of all proceeds go to protecting our waterways via Colorado Trout Unlimited.
