Upslope Brewing Company to celebrate “Five Years of Beer” this weekend

What’s amazing about the Colorado craft beer scene is that every few weeks a new brewery opens its doors.  What’s more amazing is that this trend has been going on for years.  What’s most amazing is that, through this tremendous craft brewing explosion, each brewery has found their neighborhood, their niche and, far from failing, […]

Nearly legal, Great Divide turns 19 and parties.

“This is a beer I could sip on for hours,” George tells me. Outside of this, I don’t really know who George is. He’s holding the small, four or five ounce syrupy pour of the Barrel Aged Yeti Stout, poured directly from the Stranahan’s barrel it had been aged in. He’s right, like most aged […]

Upslope Brewing Company: Still Kickin’ it After Three Years

We live in a culture of constant flux.  Permanence is gone.  New technologies become obsolete within days.  Our professional athletes change teams like they change jock straps.  Celebrities marry and divorce quicker than four frat boys killing a pitcher of beer.  This weekend, my girlfriend and I tried to visit Los Oasis Latin Grill & […]
