Boulder, Colo. (July 8, 2014) – Upslope Brewing Company is excited to announce the launch of their new limited release Lee Hill Series, a quarterly series debuting with Barrel Aged Brown Ale. This new series, named after Upslope’s original, now small batch, North Boulder brewery, celebrates experimentation and creativity. Barrel Aged Brown Ale, aged in Leopold Bros. Maryland Rye Whiskey barrels, will be available for purchase in 19.2-ounce cans at Upslope’s original Lee Hill tap room in North Boulder beginning July 17.
“Upon building a second Boulder brewery, our plan was to retain our original location at Lee Hill to continue the legacy of innovation, collaboration and experimentation that has brought us to where we are today,” said Founder Matt Cutter. “The introduction of the Lee Hill Series allows us to showcase the best of what has emerged from this brewer’s playground.”
As Upslope’s tribute and continued commitment to experimenting and crafting small batches of beer, the Lee Hill Series offers new and innovative styles that are sure to be cellar keepsakes. Volume 1 of the Series is a 7.6% abv Barrel Aged Brown Ale aged for four months in first use Maryland Rye Whiskey barrels from Leopold Bros.
The beer’s early caramel and toffee sweetness slowly fades and intertwines with the spicy wood character imparted by the whiskey barrels to produce a warming tone and lingering rye finish full of balanced complexity and substance.
Beer lovers hoping to try this first installment on tap or score a can for their cellar should head to Upslope’s Lee Hill Series Release Party on Thursday, July 17 from 5-9 p.m. at their Lee Hill tap room. Bumper Crop food truck will be serving food and live music will be performed by Blake Aaron Russell. Barrel Aged Brown Ale 19.2 ounce cans will be available for $10 (limit four).
