Boulder, Colo. – 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.
