Upslope Brewing Announces Third Annual Backcountry Tap Room

August 16, 2017

Boulder, Colo. (Aug 16, 2017) — Upslope Brewing Co, the Boulder-based craft brewer known for its mountain culture and a passion for the outdoors, will host its third annual Backcountry Tap Room on Sept. 16, 2017. The experience offers craft beer fans and outdoor enthusiasts a limited release beer in a rustic, pop-up tap room on a mountainside in Colorado’s backcountry, perfect for toasting to fall.

This year’s Backcountry Tap Room, through a partnership with Outside Magazine, is the exclusive release location of a limited collaboration brew celebrating the publication’s 40 years of inspired adventure and outdoor journalism. The 19.2-ounce Outside Denali India Pale Ale—part of Upslope’s rotating Tap Room Series—is brewed prominently with Denali hops and its limited edition can features a topographic overlay with a custom Outside label.

“We are proud to partner with Outside for their 40th Anniversary beer. Outside has inspired us over the years to live a life of adventure and creativity. We look forward to toasting to their continued success with this Denali IPA.”

After a spirited attendance at the 2016 Backcountry Tap Room and to ensure continued environmental stewardship, this year Upslope teamed up with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics (LNT). One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit LNT, with an emphasis on Colorado-based, 2018 “Hot Spots”, public lands that have sustained damage from overuse. An option to participate in a LNT volunteer day will waive the $10 event fee.

The Upslope Backcountry Tap Room is atop Granby Ranch by way of a three-mile hike or bike. Attendees will receive one can of Upslope’s Outside Denali India Pale Ale and up to two cans of Upslope’s year-round styles. There will be games, food for purchase, and leashed furry friends are welcome. Join the Backcountry Tap Room adventure at Upslopebrewing.com and Facebook.
