A small place located on the north side of Boulder, tucked away in a industrial strip mall. It has an industrial feel and is quite intimate.

This small upstart brewery that brews good beer and is worth checking out. They only sell their beer, but will also sell 6 packs to go.

The servvice is attentive and knowledgeable. They have about 8 beers on tap and seem to concentrate on ales. I had a Russian Imperial BB stout that was quite nice and well exectued!

If you are in Boulder check it out, but it will probably be #3 on my list. Congrats on the GABF win this year Upslope!

In an unassuming industrial mall in north Boulder....a small place, maybe 12 small tables and 10-12 bar stools.

I was there on a Saturday afternoon, two days after Thanksgiving so it was a little slow as Boulder tends to clear out during Thanksgiving weekend.

The bartendress and bartender/brewer were excellent. Very attentive and willing to talk beer.

There was a catering truck outside offering burritos etc but I did not order any food.

Kid-friendly with a couple of families making an afternoon out of it.

Definitely will go back to try some more of their beers (check out the beer reviews). They were all good, some excellent.

Brewery Visit #4

The final stop on the Boulder/Longmont brewery tour leg.

Upslope brewing is located just outside downtown Boulder in an industrial small business park. Walking into the brewery/tap room the first thing you notice is that this is a small place. Dead ahead is the bar with some seating to the right. We ordered a sampler and grabbed a stool.

The sampler included; Pale Ale, IPA, Craft Lager, Brown Ale, Maibock, Dopplebock, Belgian style Pale Ale, and one I can’t remember. The real treats here were the IPA, Craft Lager, and the Dopplebock.

The tap room is very basic; a few tables, stools, and some games. There was nothing like having a beer and playing Connect Four. This is a good place to have a few brews, all of which were solid, and highly drinkable. This was a pleasant farewell to Boulder. Newsflash from Fermentedly Challenged blog http://www.fermentedlychallenged.com/
Upslope will be building new brewhouse in Boulder to expand production. The new location will also have a tap room while the old location will be for experimental brews and keep the tasting room.

Service was excellent. No food to speak of.

The Upslope brewery is a very small operation. The tap room is very intimate, which is just my way saying it can only hold about 12 people. This is no problem because the place is almost always empty. They keep 5-6 beers on tap, with free tasters and cheap pints. They don't server food, but you can help yourself to the large container of pretzels they keep on the bar. The tour is nice because you only have to walk 10 feet since the brewery is so small. You can see the workers manually placing the tops on each individual can. This brewery/tap room isn't meant to charm or impress. It's just an excellent little brewery that's fun to visit...and avoid the crowds of more known (not necessarily better) breweries. Oh yeah, the beer is amazing as well.
