Upslope Brewing Co., located in Boulder, Colo., announced the grand opening of a second brewery and taproom this month. The new 17,000-square-foot brewery will allow Upslope to produce 70 percent more beer initially, with room for future expansion. It is also home to a 2,300 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 Matt Cutter, founder of Upslope. “Flatiron Park has the infrastructure that our production brewery needs to take it to the next level.”
Upslope Brewing Co. opened its doors in November 2008 with two beer styles all in cans. Over the past four-and-a-half-years, the company has expanded six times in their current location and has added TWO additional flagship beers and a limited release series.
In addition to the new facility, the original 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 following.
“We always want to be a part of this growing community,” Cutter said. “The North Boulder 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’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 its beer in aluminum cans because the company believes 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.
