American Craft Beer Week is in Full Swing at Upslope!

ACBW at Upslope

American Craft Beer Week is a national celebration of all things craft beer, and Upslope is proud to participate with events all week at our taprooms in Boulder, Colorado. American Craft Beer Week 2016 will be taking place this week, between May 16th and 22nd, across the U.S. We’re hosting parties and new tappings every single day! We’re going all out to cap off the week with our 3rd annual Upslope Get Down, a free music festival at our Flatiron Park location, to celebrate community, music and beer! #ACBW2016 #MakeSmallBeerBig


Here’s the rundown of what we have planned for American Craft Beer Week 2016:

↠ Monday (5/16)- Get Wild with 2015 Wild Christmas Ale 

We’ll be tapping limited quantity of our barrel soured and cellar aged 2015 Wild Christmas ale at both of our taprooms to kick the week off right. Get it while you can, this sour has a rabid following in our taproom and is sure to go fast.


↠ Tuesday (5/17)- #TuesdayTapping of our Lemondrop Kolsch, the newest Tap Room Series beer 

Enjoy the beautiful weather in Boulder with this crisp and flavorful Kolsch that stands out from the crowd. Mosaic and lemondrop hops give it a distinct and citrus-filled, crisp hop character. Ambrosia honey and spices like coriander and sage impart a unique and refreshing flavor that you’re sure to love. Stop in to try it on tap and let us know what you think. We’ll also have cans available so that you can take a few home to share!


↠ Wednesday (5/18)- Thai Style White IPA Summer Seasonal Release

Upslope Thai IPA

Another taproom favorite is back to pair perfectly with all of your adventures this summer! Our summer Limited Release Thai Style White IPA breaks the mold of what you might expect from an IPA. Premium malt and wheat fermented with traditional Belgian wit yeast provide the foundation of this ale, while Cascade, Columbus, and Galaxy hop flavors mix with a blend of 7 different Thai spices give it a refreshing taste like nothing else. We’ll be pouring pints in both taprooms and cans will be available to take with you.


↠ Thursday (5/19)- Throwback Thursday! Vintage Beers from our Cellar will be Available

Come in and get some of the most unique beers we’ve ever brewed as we make a limited quantity of our past Lee Hill Series and other releases available once again. Check out Ferus Fluxus, our sour Belgian Pale Ale collaboration with the Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project. We’ll have several volumes of our Lee Hill series greats like our Imperial Milk Stout, Wild Christmas, and our new Dry Hopped Wild Ale available in the taproom as well as cans to take with you. Get them while you can!


↠ Friday(5/20)- Firkin Friday!

Each location will have a completely unique firkin showcasing a new spin on one of our classic beers. At Flatiron Park, we’re having a new take on a blast from the past favorite. Jalapeño Lager is back, but this time it has been aged in a firkin rather than individual cans. The jalapeño perfectly complements the spice of the Czech Saaz hops in our crisp and refreshing Craft Lager. At our Lee Hill taproom, we’ve got an all new treat in store. To complement the re-release of our Thai IPA, we’ll have a firkin of toasted coconut and habanero pepper Thai IPA to enjoy.


↠ Saturday (5/21)- The 3rd Annual Upslope Get Down!

Upslope Get Down 2016

Join us for the 2016 Upslope Get Down, a free music festival celebrating local music, community and beer. We’ll have 13 bands on 3 stages, food trucks, games, live art, displays, and Upslope’s core beers on draft. Beer tickets will be available for $5 each and a portion of the proceeds will benefit UpaDowna, our partner organization for the event who is dedicated to providing access to outdoor adventures for all! Unleash your adventure.


↠ Sunday (5/22)- Work Off the Hangover with BeerMosas and Red Beer

Cool down after the big week with some refreshing brunch beers. We’ll be pouring beermosas, made with our award winning Belgian Style Pale Ale and orange juice, along with red beer made from our Craft Lager and tomato juice. What a way to nurse yourself back into shape after a huge American Craft Beer Week 2016!

We’re looking forward to celebrating these events Upslope-style with all of you, especially the week’s finale, the Upslope Get Down – come get down for a good time to help a great cause!
