The Newest Tap Room Series Installment

It’s been an exciting new year, with the introduction of our Citra Pale Ale as a new year round canned beer and the return of our Belgian Style Pale Ale. But, we like to keep our fans on their toes, so we’re going to keep the releases coming this year. We’re happy to announce our first Tap Room Series beer of 2017, a Peanut Butter Porter!

 What is the Tap Room Series

For anyone unfamiliar with our Tap Room Series of beers, they run parallel to our Lee Hill Series and are released eight times a year. Rather than focusing on complex, barrel aged beers like our Lee Hill Series, the Tap Room Series highlights some of the favorites that we serve on draft at our Boulder tap rooms. These limited releases are brought back to both of our tap rooms, as well as canned in our signature topographic 19.2 oz bomber cans. We also brew them in larger batches, so these popular beers are available for a bit longer to give our fans a chance to try some crowd favorites.

 Upslope Peanut Butter Porter

Our new Peanut Butter Porter started out by slightly tweaking a tried and true Porter recipe that the staff loves for a new twist. The bold and dark malts used offer a rich sweetness and a touch of roastiness. The slight amount of hops accent the roasted flavors to balance the beer out. For the peanut butter flavor, we focused on a distinct roasted peanut taste to mingle with the sweetness of the Porter. The result is a robust peanut butter beer that is primarily a great porter, but with a sweet, nutty flavor, creamy texture and slightly salty finish. This reinvention of our Peanut Butter Porter is sure to be a hit with beer nerds… and anyone with sweet tooth!

 

While this beer has plenty going on, it clocks in at a sessionable 5.3% ABV and 30 IBUs. That way, it won’t slow you down on your winter adventures while its robust flavors will pair perfectly with the slopes or the lodge after!

 

Peanut Butter Porter Release

Join us at either tap room on Tuesday, February 14th for the release of our first Tap Room Series beer of 2017. Peanut Butter Porter will be available all day on tap or in 19.2 oz cans to go. We’ll see you there!

Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale Returns

Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale Limited Release Cans Are Back!

It’s that time of the year again, Upslope Limited Release fan favorite Belgian Style Pale Ale is on the horizon!

Our Belgian Style Pale Ale, formerly a Great American Beer Festival Gold medal winner known as “Time of the Season” in the Pro-Am Category in 2009, is back again for another year – this time arriving a bit earlier on the scene to bridge the gap between winter and spring.

About Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale

This bold Belgian Style Pale Ale features a honey-gold color with a perfectly clear body and aromas of cloves, banana and apricot. The malt character and yeast esters drive the flavors of this Belgian style ale, with coriander adding a unique flare. The spice and clove accents meld perfectly with the fruity esters and malt sweetness to make this brew perfectly appealing either in the midst of a Colorado snow storm or in the warm Spring sunshine.

Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale weighs in at 7.5% ABV to warm you up on your winter adventures and only 30 IBUs as the hops take a back seat in this beer.

 

We’ve already had plenty of enthusiasts in our tap rooms asking about our Belgian Style Pale Ale, and longtime fans be surprised by our earlier release date than in previous years. We are making some adjustments to our seasonal canned beer schedule this year for a few reasons, the largest being the addition of another canned seasonal beer to the rotation. More news on that release coming soon! Additionally, we get so many requests for the Belgian Style Pale Ale every winter that it only made sense to release it a little earlier this year.

Available on Tap and in Cans February 7th!

Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale will be available on tap and in cans in both of our tap rooms on Tuesday, February 7, 2017. It’ll also be hitting store shelves anywhere where Upslope is sold in the coming weeks, too.

 

If you’ve never tried it, Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale makes a mean beer-mosa for breakfast beer drinking. Be on the lookout for experimental fruited versions of this beer in both tap rooms coming soon.
