New canned offerings strengthen Upslope’s diverse selections
Boulder, Colo. (July 16, 2015) – Upslope Brewing Company broadens their collection of carefully crafted beers with the introduction of the all-new Tap Room Series and the newest addition to their line of seasonal Limited Releases – Blood Orange Saison.
The 19.2-ounce rotating Tap Room Series cans will consist of brewer-selected beers that have been vetted in Upslope’s tap rooms. Unlike the barrel aged Lee Hill Series that was introduced last summer, which are often intended to be cellared, the highly approachable new series of beers are crafted to be consumed brewery-fresh.
The first in the series, a 5.9% abv Citra Pale Ale, will be available for purchase at one of Upslope’s two Boulder tap rooms and select retailers starting July 27, 2015. The Citra hops used to brew this American Pale Ale impart distinctive citrus and tropical fruit flavors. With a moderately dry finish and a spicy hop character that approaches that of an IPA, this beer has been a top seller in our tap rooms since its release.
“Our tap room customers are continuously excited by the creative new recipes our brewers are coming up with,” said Upslope Founder Matt Cutter. “It’s great to be able to offer some of our most popular styles in this new Tap Room Series so these beers can also be enjoyed at home or on the trail.”
Upslope’s newest Limited Release creation, a 12-ounce Blood Orange Saison, will be available in 6-packs beginning in Sept. 2015 in all of Upslope’s distribution areas, including: Colorado, Texas, Wyoming, Arizona, Montana and New Mexico. The distinctive citrus flavor of the Mandarina Bavaria hops used to brew this 6% abv saison complement the blood oranges, while the spice from the pink peppercorns interplays with the beer’s natural sweetness.
