Boulder, Colo. (June 30, 2015) - Upslope Brewing Company, in association with Trout Unlimited and Minturn Anglers, is proud to announce a new social media contest entitled ‘Catch and Relief.’ The grand prize winner of this easy-to-enter contest will enjoy a guided two-day/two-night fly-fishing getaway hosted by Minturn Anglers in Vail, CO. The prize package includes luxury accommodations at the Solaris Hotel, a custom Upslope fly rod and reel from Minturn Anglers, a fishing pack, shirt and hat from Simms, and a weekend’s worth of Upslope beer.

To enter, contestants can simply post a picture to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter of fishing-related activities that include a can of Upslope and the hashtag #catchandrelief.
