Backcountry hut near Winter Park, CO plays host to Upslope Sept. 19, 2015

Boulder, Colo. (Sept. 9, 2015) Upslope Brewing Company, brewers of the recently announced limited edition Tap Room Series, will celebrate the release of the series’ second brew – an Oktoberfest Lager, by opening the world’s first backcountry tap room for a one-day event at the High Lonesome Hut outside of Winter Park, Colorado Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015.

Located 2.3 miles from the nearest road and with picturesque mountain scenery, the High Lonesome Hut tap room is the perfect place to enjoy Upslope’s new Oktoberfest Lager. Each visitor to the backcountry tap room will be given one complimentary 19.2-ounce can of the new Tap Room Series Oktoberfest Lager and up to two cans of any of Upslope’s 12-ounce year round styles with a valid ID.

"We are stoked to share this one-of-a-kind experience with our fans in the high country while toasting to fall,” said Upslope Director of Sales and Marketing Henry Wood. “We all love Colorado this time of year and are excited to celebrate the changing of seasons with our first ever Oktoberfest Lager.”

Pouring a deep amber color with a slight orange tinge, this 5.1% abv Oktoberfest Lager provides malty aromas with a touch of toast. Its clean taste and smooth mouthfeel make for effortless drinking that’s perfect for celebrating, pairing with German fare or simply enjoying the crisp autumn air.
