Upslope Brewing Company Expands into Second Boulder Location

Upslope - Exterior at 1898 Flatiron Park (3)Boulder, Colo. (Apr. 17, 2013)Upslope Brewing Company, brewers of premium ales, announce the grand opening of a second brewery and taproom on April 24, 2013.  Located at 1898 S. Flatiron Court in Flatiron Park, off 55th and Central Ave. in Boulder, the 17,000 square foot brewery will allow Upslope to produce 70% more beer initially, with room for future expansion.  It is also home to a 2300 square foot taproom.

“Demand for our beer continues to grow exponentially and ongoing expansion at the current location doesn’t meet our future goals,” said Upslope Founder, Matt Cutter.  “Flatiron Park has the infrastructure that our production brewery needs to take it to the next level.”

Upslope Brewing Company opened its doors in November 2008 at 1501 Lee Hill Road in North Boulder with two beer styles all in cans. Over the past four and a half years the company has expanded 6 times in their current location and has added 2 additional flagship beers and a Limited Release series.

In addition to the new facility, the original Lee Hill Road brewery will remain open for production as an incubator for new and innovative beer styles.  The taproom will continue tap-service largely in part due to its loyal North Boulder (NoBo) following.

“We always want to be a part of this growing community,” said Cutter. “The NoBo vibe is infused in these walls and in these tanks.  We are very thankful for the people who have supported us from the early days, through both the victories and the growing pains.”

Upslope Brewing Company’s premium, filtered ale is handcrafted with all natural ingredients, starting with snowmelt. Upslope’s flagship beers include: Pale Ale, Craft Lager, India Pale Ale, and Brown Ale. Upslope proudly packages their beer in aluminum cans because it is better for the consumer, the beer, and the environment.  Cans are also perfect for the on-the-go lifestyle of Colorado and points beyond. The benefits of canning – protection from light and oxidation and retention of brewery direct freshness- have been well received by Upslope drinkers.

Stop by Upslope’s new taproom for a cold beer or an enlightening tour at: 1898 S. Flatiron Court in Boulder, Colorado. Hours of operation will be 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. seven days a week. Brewery tours at Flatiron begin at 4:00 p.m. every day.

Our Four Year Anniversary

Brown Is The New Silver

 Picture this:  You are sitting in the cushy seats of Wells Fargo Theater in Denver among four or five thousand of your peers. The awards ceremony begins and a graphic shows up on the big screen —  4338 beers  from 666 breweries were judged in 84 categories —  The crowd gasps. We feel hopeful with our entries, but humbled by the numbers. There are no assumptions here, no feelings of entitlement. We start to count down the style categories of which we did not medal.

Is it possible to taste passion? At the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, Upslope Brown Ale received a silver medal in the American Brown Ale category, our fourth medal in four years of brewing beer. We couldn’t be more proud of our Brown Ale in the green can. The roots of it’s style go back a couple of centuries, and it’s recipe comes straight from the heart of a homebrewer. Follow me here and I’ll tell you the tale of an award-winning brown ale Introducing No. 3: Upslope Brown Ale

 

Upslope Brewing Company and Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen brew Upslope White ThaIPA

 

Alex Violette and Ryan Conklin collaborate

In celebration of GABF 2012, Euclid Hall Bar and Kitchen and Upslope Brewing Co have collaborated on (Upslope White ThaIPA), a culinary inspired beer, to highlight the commitment to serving great food with great beer.

The project began when Euclid Hall’s, Certified Cicerone, Ryan Conklin, approached Upslope Brewing Co. to produce a beer that mimicked flavors of a Thai inspired curry dish and also mimicked the complexity and finesse of the food menu at Euclid Hall.  In order to know exactly what spices were to be used and just how “curry” we wanted the beer to taste, we visited a local highly acclaimed Thai restaurant in Boulder sampling all of their curries. We then deconstructed the specific flavors we wanted the beer to embody and began making a rough sketch recipe for this intricate beer.

Over the course of the two months leading up to GABF, the staff from Euclid Hall visited Upslope numerous times to aid in the develop and production of this one of a kind beer. We take great pride in their participation in brewing this Thai inspired White IPA. We hope you too will come to love this beer which can be found only at Euclid Hall and the Upslope Tap Room.

You can try this beer now at the Upslope Tap Room and in starting in Denver Wednesday, October 10th, 6pm at Euclid Hall for Upslope’s Special GABF Tapping Party, which will also feature Upslope’s Barely Wine, Wit, and Pumpkin Ale.

Upslope Brewing Company
Boulder, Colorado

(Boulder, CO)РUpslope Brewing Company, located in Boulder, Colorado, announces its plan to build a new brewery in Flatiron Park, located near 55th Street in Boulder. The new brewery will be operational in Q1 2013 allowing Upslope Brewing to initially expand by 70% with plenty of room for future expansion. It will also open a 2300 square foot taproom in the new facility. The tap room will also share a work caf̩ in conjunction with Ozo Coffee Roasters.

Upslope Brewing Company opened its doors in November 2008 at 1501 Lee Hill Road in North Boulder with two beer styles all in cans. Over the past three and a half years the company has expanded 6 times in their current location and has added 2 additional flagship beers and a Limited Release series. “Demand for our beer continues to grow exponentially and ongoing expansion at the current location doesn’t meet our future goals. Flatiron Park has the infrastructure that our production brewery needs to take it to the next level,” says Founder, Matt Cutter.

Upslope Brewing will continue to operate its taproom and brewery at Lee Hill. The Lee Hill brewery will be both a production brewery and an incubator for new and innovative beer styles. “When demand for our beer drives the day to day production there is little room in the brewing schedule for experimentation,” says Cutter. Additionally, Upslope Brewing feels that North Boulder has embraced the brewery and taproom. “We always want to be a part of this growing community. That NoBo vibe is in these walls and in these tanks.”

Upslope Brewing Company, a microbrewery located in Boulder, Colorado, taps into the beer enthusiast’s active lifestyle by offering superior quality hand-crafted ales and lagers in cans. The teaming of fine beers in cans allows Upslope Brewing’s products to be fresh, mobile, and delicious.

Why cans? Cans are better for the beer, the environment and are perfect for the on-the-go lifestyle of Colorado and points beyond. The benefits of canning – protection from light and oxidation and retention of brewery direct freshness – have been well received both through Upslope Brewing’s popular flagship and limited release beers.
