Afterward, pay particular attention to your taste buds as you make your way into Upslope’s tap room where you will enjoy the body, texture, and flavor of delicious beers with BeerSnobChick.  This all levels class is ideal for anyone who is interested in exploring yoga in a relaxed environment and looking to expand their minds in respect to local beers!

The Deal:    Each session is $20 (and can be purchased by card or cash at the door), which includes a 1-hour yoga session followed by an Upslope pint of your choice. Mats are not provided.

Chef Hosea

Blackbelly’s award winning Chef, Hosea Rosenberg, will serve it up at Upslope’s Flatiron Park tap room.

Blackbelly’s award winning Chef, Hosea Rosenberg, winner of Bravo’s Top Chef Season Five, is teaming up with Upslope Brewing Company and Liquor Mart to host an intimate beer dinner experience at our brand new tap room in Flatiron Park. Guests will enjoy a unique and innovative multi-course menu, custom created by Chef Hosea that will pair perfectly with the delicious flavors and brews from Upslope. Plus, meet head brewer, Alex Violette, as he takes you through each beer pairing and gives a behind-the-scenes look at our new brewing facility.

The local seasonal menu promises to be unforgettable, as Blackbelly sources most of their ingredients from the Blackbelly Farm, where they raise their own pigs and lamb and also grow a variety of produce. Similarly, as a Boulder-based microbrewery, Upslope takes pride in hand crafting every batch of beer we produce, using only the purest ingredients, and carefully coax our beer until it reaches optimum flavor.
