Introducing the Lee Hill Series

Lee Hill Series_Barrel Aged BrownWe may have a newer, larger production brewery at Flatiron Park, but don’t think for a minute we’ve forgotten where we came from. Our original North Boulder brewery at Lee Hill has been a hotbed of creativity lately, crankin’ out some killer small batch brews for our tap rooms, and is now the home of the Lee Hill Series – a quarterly, limited release series celebrating experimentation and creativity. This Series, served up in 19.2 ounce cans, offers new and innovative styles that are sure to be cellar keepsakes.

“Upon building a second Boulder brewery, our plan was to retain our original location at Lee Hill to continue the legacy of innovation, collaboration and experimentation that has brought us to where we are today,” said Upslope Founder, Matt Cutter. “The introduction of the Lee Hill Series allows us to showcase the best of what has emerged from this brewer’s playground.”

Volume 1 – Barrel Aged Brown Ale

As Upslope’s tribute and continued commitment to experimenting and crafting small batches of beer, the Lee Hill Series offers new and innovative styles that are sure to be cellar keepsakes. Volume 1 of the Series is a 7.6% abv Barrel Aged Brown Ale aged for four months in first use Maryland Rye Whiskey barrels from Leopold Bros.

The beer’s early caramel and toffee sweetness slowly fades and intertwines with the spicy wood character imparted by the whiskey barrels to produce a warming tone and lingering rye finish full of balanced complexity and substance.
