BOULDER, Colorado – Boulder-based Upslope Brewing Company introduces yearlong International Lager Series, as well as new spring seasonal, Limited Release West Coast Style IPA.
The International Lager Series, inspired by beer styles around the world, will be available throughout 2022 with a new and unique limited release beer being introduced every two months. Some of these styles are familiar re-releases, while others are being canned for the very first time. The rotating series of light, drinkable styles begins with Mexican Style Dark Lager, released earlier this month.
• Mexican Style Dark Lager: February-March
• German Style Pilsner: April-May
• Japanese Style Lager: June-July
• Oktoberfest Festbier Lager: August-September
• Italian Style Pilsner: October-November
• Czech Style Dark Lager: December-January
“We’re very excited to bring the International Lager Series to a larger audience and show off some of the beers we are most proud of and love to drink! Several of these styles have been fan favorites in our tap rooms and will be packaged in a can for the first time,” said Upslope’s Head Brewer Alex Meyer. “The International Lager Series highlights the great diversity that can be found in lagers and is the culmination of brewing traditions that have influenced us as craft brewers.”

In addition to Mexican Style Dark Lager and the remainder of the International Lager Series, Upslope is excited to announce their latest Limited Release—West Coast Style IPA.
The new West Coast Style IPA is Upslope’s take on the classic style. Citrus and pine flavors dance with bright tropical fruit character that finishes dry with firm bitterness.
“West Coast Style IPA is an ode to the hop-forward, bitter beers that got many of us into the craft beer scene,” said Upslope’s Head Brewer Alex Meyer. “It has the citrus and pine character of a classic West Coast IPA with accents of tropical fruit provided by novel hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. A light, dry malt profile helps the hops shine and makes for a very drinkable beer.”
