Premium Beer Without Being Pretentious
Crack open a cold, fresh can of Upslope, and ascend to new heights of beer bliss. You’ll discover a supremely palatable, drinkable ale that’s full of flavor. Hand-crafted in small batches, our beer is nothing but pure goodness, delivered to you in a portable, recyclable aluminum vessel. Take it anywhere!

A Colorado brew, through and through
We love beer. And we love Colorado. So we set out to create the perfect beer to complement our active, outdoor lifestyle. We designed our delicious, drinkable ales in portable cans to appeal to the pioneering spirit of Colorado. So next time you’re skinning up slopes, biking backcountry trails, hiking high peaks, running rushing rivers, or chilling at a concert, grab a cold can to enjoy.

Protecting our environment is key to Colorado. That’s why we craft our beer with conscience. From recapturing the water we use in the brewing process, to installing efficient, three-phase electricity, to delivering our lightweight cans in a natural gas-powered van, we are finding ways to reduce the impact of our brewery on the planet.

Fresh, cold, pure
We take pride in every batch of beer we produce. Using only the purest ingredients, we carefully coax our beer until it reaches optimum flavor.

Why the can?
We package our beer in aluminum cans because it’s good for you, the beer, and the environment.
Exceptionally portable
Keeps beer fresh
Easy to recycle
Requires less fuel for transport


Upslope Craft Lager

This is what a “regular” beer should taste like. It’s simple and relatively light, but unlike typical American fuzzy yellow water, it’s got body and heft. Great for outdoor activities in the sun, when you just need a thirst quenching beer that you can pound down. Consider this a tastier craft version of Coors or Budweiser.

Upslope Brown  

Next up is the Brown Ale from upslope, a great example of an American Style Brown Ale. With more hops than found in traditional brown ales, Upslope manages to keep it well balanced and not overwhelming in the hop and malt flavors. This ale has the classic malted barley characteristics, most of which being caramel malt and brown sugar. This one sells best when cold outside.

Upslope Christmas Ale

This is a Belgian Strong Dark Ale sitting at a solid 8.3% abv. The Christmas Ale smells of Belgian yeasts and dark fruits, and pours a dark amber color that’s light on the carbonation. This is a nice winter warmer style, meant to be fruity and bread like, and high on the alcohol to warm you up in the winter months. Come and get it while it lasts!

Upslope Belgian Style Pale Ale

Last but not least is the current seasonal limited release from Upslope, the Belgian Style Pale Ale. The title lets you know what you’re in for, as it is both a lighter style Belgian and also a pale ale. The hops come through less than you would expect being a pale ale, and the Belgian yeast comes through less than you would expect being a Belgain ale, and this is exactly what makes it such a well balanced beer. This is my favorite of the Upslope seasonal releases, come and see what you think!
