“The original concept for the beer was born out of a collaboration with our friends Drew and Leah Watson, owners of Hops & Pie in Denver. Over the past year we brewed a number of experimental saisons, but found ourselves looking back at this tap room favorite for inspiration,” said Upslope’s Head Brewer Sam Scruby. “I’m excited to showcase this hop variety paired with such an intricate and interesting yeast strain. The pink peppercorns and blood oranges amplify the spicy and dry saison character, giving us a wonderful bouquet of flavors.”
