Barrel Aged Imperial Stout available Thursday, February 19
Boulder, Colo. (Feb. 12, 2015) – Upslope Brewing Company will release the third volume of their quarterly limited release Lee Hill Series Thursday, February 19 at the brewery’s original Lee Hill tap room in North Boulder. The Barrel Aged Imperial Stout continues the celebration of experimentation and creativity that has become the trademark of Upslope’s small-batch brewery.
The Lee Hill Series Volume 3 Barrel Aged Imperial Stout was brewed to be aged in Leopold Bros. Maryland Rye Whiskey barrels. With copious amounts of Maris Otter malted barley and three distinct roasted grains this stout provides a chocolate, coffee and nuanced dark fruit flavor that fuses excellently with the unique character of the oak barrels. At 10% abv, this robust winter treat delivers spicy rye and smooth vanilla aromas imparted from the barrel aging process.
“Brewing and aging the Lee Hill Series in a small-batch format gives us the opportunity to experiment with the finest ingredients available,” said Head Brewer, Sam Scruby. “The Volume 3 Barrel Aged Imperial Stout is a sturdy, yet smooth, take on the classic stout style.”
After the strong successes of the first and second volumes of the Lee Hill Series releases, Upslope continues their commitment to innovation by crafting small batches of cellar-worthy beer.
Beer lovers looking to taste the third installment on tap or purchase a can for their cellar can head to Upslope’s Lee Hill Series Release Party on Thursday, February 19 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Upslope’s Lee Hill tap room. Shopey’s Sandwiches food truck will be serving food and 19.2 ounce Barrel Aged Imperial Stout cans will be available for $10 (limit four).
