Upslope Releasing 21%-AbV Grand Reserve

Upslope Releasing 21%-AbV Grand Reserve

Something grand awaits you…
behold, our rare bottle project we've coined Upslope Grand Reserve.
We're releasing limited edition 750 ml bottles packaged in specialty boxes starting next week on Wednesday, December 8th in both tap rooms. Score your bottle of this limited, special batch before it’s gone—you don’t want to miss this!

21% ABV
This one-of-a-kind beer, and rare bottle endeavor for Upslope, began in 2017 as "Batch 1000" - a massive, high gravity beer aged in bourbon barrels for a year before it's release as Vol. 19 of our Lee Hill Series - has transformed into Upslope's Grand Reserve. After packaging the initial batch, our brewers held on to a small portion to further age for two more years in first generation bourbon barrels until we knew it was time to share. This secondary aging has deepened the barrel character and allowed for a slow oxidation, yielding a sweet, after-dinner libation akin to an aged tawny port or Pedro Ximénez sherry.
Upslope Grand Reserve is bottled intentionally still (without carbonation) to preserve the rich, vinous qualities of this deeply-aged liquid. We recommend allowing the beer to breathe in a decanter or port glass for about an hour, warming it to room temperature prior to your first sip. Notes of muscovado sugar, dried figs, and vanilla from the base beer eventually yield to oxidative accents of burnt honey and a nutty, candied character reminiscent of pralines. A velvety, syrupy body is followed by a warming and decadent finish. Due to the high alcohol content and advanced oxidation of the beer, one can reseal the bottle after opening for future enjoyment.

Wednesday, December 8th
Starting at 4 pm in both tap rooms

Packaged in sleek 750 ml bottles, Upslope Grand Reserve will be available to take home from both tap rooms and to enjoy on draft in 5-ounce pours in our Flatiron Park tap room starting December 8th. Packed in specialty boxes, it will make for a cherished holiday gift for the beer connoisseur in your life, and provide a unique tasting experience in our tap rooms.
Bottles limited to 2 per person.
