Upslope’s 3rd Annual Backcountry Tap Room ↟↟ 9.16.17

We’re headed to the backcountry once again this fall to host a pop-up tap room experience for our 3rd Annual ↟↟ Backcountry Tap Room ↟↟ on Saturday, September 16, 2017! Get ready to enjoy some good beers in the great outdoors… but you’ll have to earn it!

This year we’ve teamed up with our friends at Outside Magazine on a special collaboration anniversary brew as well as our friends at the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics for an even bigger, better and more sustainable event – **100% of the proceeds will go directly to Leave No Trace to support their 2018 Colorado Hot Spots!**

This year’s Backcountry Tap Room will serve as the exclusive release location of our limited edition Denali India Pale Ale from our Tap Room Series, a beer specially developed by our brewers to celebrate 40 years of Outside Magazine. Join us for a family-friendly, 3 mile hike up to 9,200 feet for this Outside Magazine anniversary IPA brewed with Denali hops!

↠ WHEN // Saturday, September 16 (Bar hours: 11:00 am-5:00 pm)

↠ WHERE // Top of Granby Ranch – by way of marked trails (3 miles)

But our first taste won’t exactly be a walk in the park. Actually, it’ll be a walk in the woods. And once you hike to our tap room, you’ll be treated to a beer that pairs perfectly with a fall day on the front range with some sweet views!
