Decent atmosphere. The waitress on staff the night I went seemed very pre-occupied with conversing with other customers. It took far too long for me to get a beer (15-20 minutes) which seems ridiculous to me. Decent beer, especially for a place that started in a business park. I might go back again, but only because it is the nearest brewery to my job. Overall pretty good beer, but not the greatest service.

Nice and stylish place with minimalist modern design dominated by stainless steel. Great patio to sit on and relax with friends if the weather is good. Quite street. The bartender was very courteous and knowledgeable about beers. Most important they have many more beers on tap then available retail - many of the better ones brewed in small batches. My favourite - Mosaic IPA..

The original brewery for Upslope is still up and running. In fact, this is where the most fun stuff that Upslope makes comes from. They recently added a few more draft lines (for a total of 12, I believe) and despite the fact that this is a regular hang out for me, there is almost always something on that I've never had before.

The taproom itself is cozy, warm ad welcoming, but with a garage door leading into the brewery itself, a big picture window looking in and a minimalist theme to the whole place it is also has a very open feel.

The staff is very friendly and even though the majority of patrons here are regulars from the neighborhood, they will still make you feel like you belong even if it's your first stop. Last time I was there they had the core beers on, plus a few random specialties and the highlight for me: Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout.

The selection is not as wide as the newer of their two breweries, but it's still strong and it provides a more intimate setting and is typically less crowded.
