Upslope Announces Plans to Move and Expand Experimental Brewing Facility

Upslope S'PARK Project

New brewpub scheduled to open Fall 2017

Boulder, Colo. (Sept. 4, 2015) Upslope Brewing Company, in cooperation with central Boulder’s S’PARK development, is proud to announce plans for an all-new 11,000 square foot brewpub at 34th St. and Valmont in Boulder, Colorado. Scheduled for completion in the fall of 2017, the new facility will be home to all of Upslope’s experimental brewing and barrel-aging, as well as a full-service restaurant with a mezzanine and patio.

“The innovation emerging from our Lee Hill brewery has never been more important than it is today, and has become essential to stay relevant in today’s quickly evolving craft beer industry. In an effort to expand the experimental brewing, piloting, barrel-aging and collaboration beers that are going on there today, we need to move the brewery to a larger location,” said Upslope Founder Matt Cutter. “We have fortunately been able to combine that expansion effort with being part of a one-of-a-kind project taking shape in central Boulder, just north of Boulder Junction. Having worked with Element Properties for many months on the design of this brewpub, we couldn’t be more excited to be a key component of the S’PARK project and Markt building.”

Upslope first opened its doors in November 2008 with just two beer styles at the current Lee Hill location. Over the past six years, the company has experienced unprecedented growth. In 2013, Upslope opened its second location in Flatiron Park, a 27,000 square foot brewery complete with a 2,300 square foot tap room. Today, Upslope offers five year round styles, six Limited Release styles, the Lee Hill Series and the Tap Room Series.

The existing Lee Hill tap room and experimental brewing facility, located in North Boulder, will remain in operation until the completion of the new facility in the fall of 2017.

Upslope’s Flatiron Park location will continue as its main production brewery, producing its year round, canned offerings and its popular tap room will remain open.
