Toast the Fall Season with Upslope's Annual Backcountry Tap Room

Toast the Fall Season with Upslope's Annual Backcountry Tap Room

What's better than good craft beer? Good craft beer that is earned, of course. That's why we're all about après and huge supporters of the Upslope Brewing Company who's tagline is après everything. The Boulder based craft brewer is known for their penchant for enjoying the outdoors. So it should come as no surprise that on Saturday, October 6, 2018 in Fraser, Colorado they will host their  annual Backcountry Tap Room. This experience, now in its fourth year, offers craft beer fans and outdoor enthusiasts alike a rustic, pop-up tap room on a mountainside in Colorado’s back country. Talk about the perfect way to toast the fall season. 

Earn Your Après and Be Rewarded With a Sneak Peak of Upslope's New Winter Seasonal

Of course, participants will need to earn their après first. By way of marked trails (~5 miles out-and-back), attendees will enjoy a family-friendly, day hike to soak up some brews and beautiful views. Then it's time to sip some beers, and preview Upslope’s new winter Limited Release Spruce Tip IPA, which will accompany their traditional line of fan favorites.

This year’s Backcountry Tap Room, will take place atop Grand Park in Fraser, Colorado. "Through our 10-year history, Upslope brews have been largely inspired by the outdoors lifestyle," says Matt Cutter, Founder at Upslope. “With Colorado’s backcountry in our DNA, we look forward to sharing a day outdoors with our friends, both new and old, each year. For our fourth annual event, we’re excited to give our fans a sneak peek at our brand new Winter Seasonal Limited Release—Spruce Tip IPA.”
