The facility is very large that Upslope can grow even more from within. The taproom consist of two rooms, the main room and an over flow room that can be used as a meeting room because of the sliding glass door that separates the room from the taproom. The bar is a horseshoe shape that can sit 20 people comfortably. The most impressive item in the taproom is the beer taps, made of a chrome like material that floats as if by magic in the middle of the bar. The beers comes directly from the holding tanks and probably kegs. Segments are cut out to show the tubing from which the beer flows through. It is difficult for me to explain but you can see from the photos what I mean.

On tap was the Pale Ale, Dunkleweisse, Double IPA, the Brown Ale, Foreign Stout, a Thai IPA, and the Craft Lager in cans.

There were many people helping Upslope iron out the kinks, Steve and Leslie Kaczeus owners of Bootstrap Brewing, Kyle from Crooked Stave and Phil Vaughn taproom manager at Avery Brewing, and Vanessa who is bartender at Backcountry Pizza in Boulder. Then there were the lucky patrons who were invited such as Larry and I, Mitch Smith, Kim, and the parents of one of the Upslope staff who traveled from Boston, plus many more.
Upslope Brewing's grand opening is on Wednesday, April 24 at 11am. Show your support in the local craft beer by heading to Upslope's new venue.
