Upslope Brewing Releases ‘18 Pumpkin Ale, Blood Orange Saison, and more

Fan Favorites and Small-batch Tap Room Offerings Announced for Fall ‘18

BOULDER, Colo. (August 1, 2018) — Upslope Brewing Company, the Boulder-based brewer, today announced its latest Limited Release brews, the 2018 Pumpkin Ale and Blood Orange Saison, as well as their newest Tap Room Series, Southern Hemisphere Pale Ale.

The 2011 Great American Beer Festival gold-medal-winning Pumpkin Ale is brewed with baby bear pumpkins from local Boulder grower, Munson Farms. An autumn treat, this brew’s unique blend of six spices round out the robust flavors in this timeless style.

Now in its 4th year of production, Upslope’s Limited Release Blood Orange Saison boasts the distinctive citrus flavor of the Mandarina Bavaria hops. The blood oranges create a bright, juicy flavor, while the pink peppercorn spice plays well with the beer’s natural sweetness and dry finish in this 6% ABV brew.

“Each year, when we reveal our latest iteration of Pumpkin Ale and Blood Orange Saison, we’re reminded that the fall season is right around the corner,” said Upslope’s founder, Matt Cutter. “As the new season turns, we know our fans are gearing up to enjoy these limited release styles both in the backcountry and in their backyard.”

Available next week, while supplies last, Pumpkin Ale will be offered in 12-ounce cans at Upslope’s two Boulder tap rooms and across Upslope’s distribution region of the Rocky Mountains, Midwest, and southern United States.  Blood Orange Saison will be hitting shelves by Labor Day for a limited time in 12-ounce cans, as well.
