Upslope Brewing puts Christmas in a can

Upslope Brewing Christmas AlePut a little holiday cheer in your stocking this year with a 16oz can of Upslope Brewing Christmas Ale. Christmas is coming a bit early this year just so you can stock up for all the holidays. The following is a press release from Upslope Brewing.

[PRESS RELEASE] Boulder, CO - Just in time for the snow to pile up on the high peaks, Upslope Brewing Company releases its highly anticipated Christmas Ale on November 1, 2012. This Spiced Belgian-Style Dubbel is the fourth installment in their Limited Release Series and will be the brewery’s second 16 oz can four pack.

“The recipe for this beer is based upon an old homebrew recipe of mine that I use to take to Christmas parties”, says Matt Cutter, Upslope’s Founder. “In 2009, the brewery adopted this as our Christmas Ale. It was always a spiced holiday ale but last year Alex Violette, Upslope’s Head Brewer, decided to Belgianize this beer by fermenting it with Abbey Ale Yeast.”

This beer pours ruby red with a thick off-white headstand that laces the glass with every sip. The aroma of the Upslope blend of holiday spices complements the dark fruit and spicy notes from the Abbey Ale Yeast. These notes then carry through to the flavor of this medium bodied ale.

The distinctive holiday aroma, ruby red color and rich malt flavor make this ale perfect for spreading Christmas cheer.

The gift of Upslope Christmas Ale will already be “pre-wrapped” on the shelf in a distinctive red ribbon-striped 16 oz can and available on a limited basis throughout Colorado during the holiday season.
