The Tap Room Series spans all styles, basically at the whim of the brewing team. Being middle of the summer, we are willing to bet a single hopped India pale ale was an easy choice. This release features Mosaic hops – a hop in high demand these days. With good reason. By now you have to be pretty familiar with Mosaic hops – a recent runaway star in the aroma hop game. They smell of tropical fruit, and have a “mosaic” of citrus flavors, even a bit piney.
Upslope Mosaic IPA rocks all that and more. While this 19.2 ounce can of hop love is only available in the Upslope taprooms, we cast our vote for making this at least a seasonal.
Availability: 19.2oz Cans, Draft. Limited release.
Debut: Summer, 2016
Upslope Raspberry Belgian Style Pale Ale
Upslope Oktoberfest joins the Boulder, Colorado brewery’s lineup September 19th, 2015.
Upslope Oktoberfest is the second beer in the recently announced limited edition Tap Room Series. To celebrate, the brewery is opening the first backcountry tap room, for a one day event at the High Lonesome Hut outside of Winter Park, Colorado, this Saturday.
The tap room is 2.3 miles from the nearest road, and has a pretty amazing view. Visitors at the hidden bar will get a free 19.2oz Upslope Oktoberfest beer, plus two cans of any 12 ounce year round offering.
“We are stoked to share this one-of-a-kind experience with our fans in the high country while toasting to fall,” said Upslope Director of Sales and Marketing Henry Wood. “We all love Colorado this time of year and are excited to celebrate the changing of seasons with our first ever Oktoberfest Lager.”
Upslope Oktoberfest is a seasonal offering. Planning on attending? Check Upslope’s Facebook event page.
