Today is the First Day of Fall, aka the Autumnal Equinox. Around 8:29pm MDT is the moment that fall begins today. So let's give a toast to the last few hours of Summer and welcome in the Fall. Already the leaves are changing up in the mountains and around the lower valleys and plains. It's time to put away those summertime beers and break open the Fall seasonals and slightly darker beers.

[PRESS RELEASE] Boulder, Colo. (Apr. 17, 2013) – Upslope Brewing Company, brewers of premium ales, announce the grand opening of a second brewery and taproom on April 24, 2013. Located at 1898 S. Flatiron Court in Flatiron Park, off 55th and Central Ave. in Boulder, the 17,000 square foot brewery will allow Upslope to produce 70% more beer initially, with room for future expansion. It is also home to a 2300 square foot taproom.

“Demand for our beer continues to grow exponentially and ongoing expansion at the current location doesn't meet our future goals,” said Upslope Founder, Matt Cutter. “Flatiron Park has the infrastructure that our production brewery needs to take it to the next level.”

Upslope Brewing Company opened its doors in November 2008 at 1501 Lee Hill Road in North Boulder with two beer styles all in cans. Over the past four and a half years the company has expanded 6 times in their current location and has added 2 additional flagship beers and a Limited Release series.

[PRESS RELEASE] DURANGO, Colo., (Apr. 3, 2013) — Ska Brewing is announcing the annual release of Mexican Logger, its seasonal Mexican-style lager. The namesake beer of the Mexican Logger Superhero Carlos Javier—from Ska’s original comic book story and business plan—will hit shelves, decks and patios in Colorado and around the country on April 17th.

At 5% ABV, Mexican Logger was made to be delicious and sessionable, taking some cues from the Mexican-style lagers many are familiar with, but improving on the result with the finest ingredients and a craft brewer’s attention to detail—kind of like it used to be when 19th century German immigrants arrived on the scene. The body is light to medium, with fresh grain and sweet malt balancing a mild and pleasant bite from the Saaz hops, and a clean, crisp finish that is a perfect match for summer’s heat.
