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.

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
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 “curryâ€ 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.
We are looking for an energetic, passionate person who is eager to promote the Colorado Craft Beer scene. Your job duties will be focused around the tap room and lending a hand during brewery events. A passion for craft beer is a must and beer knowledge is a plus; what you may not know now about great beer you must be eager to learn! Typical duties will be pouring the perfect pint, interacting with customers, draft system maintenance & troubleshooting, ability to “talk beer”, move full kegs with a hand truck, give tours while telling the “Upslope story,” maintain cleanliness of tap room, and be very responsible with serving alcohol. All employees will be required to become TIPS certified.
We work in a fast paced, rapidly changing environment, where hard work and working well with others is paramount, but we also like to get out and play. Enjoying the outdoor lifestyle is encouraged at Upslope Brewing Company and being responsible around alcohol is a must. Currently we are looking for a part-time employee to work weekends (1pm-11pm) and the occasional weekday (1-10pm).
