BOULDER, Colorado (August 24, 2016) — Upslope Brewing Company, a nationally-decorated Boulder-based craft brewery, has officially released this year’s edition of its fall Limited Release Blood Orange Saison.

Back for its second-straight year, Upslope’s Blood Orange Saison will be available in 12-ounce 6-packs, beginning next week. The distinctive citrus flavor of the Mandarina Bavaria hops used to brew this 6% ABV saison complements the blood oranges to create a bright, juicy flavor, while the spice from the pink peppercorns interplays with the beer’s natural sweetness and dry finish.

“The original concept for this beer was born out of a collaboration with our friends Drew and Leah Watson, owners of Hops & Pie in Denver,” said Upslope’s Head Brewer Sam Scruby. “Back by popular demand for another year, we’re excited to, again, showcase this beer’s unique hop variety and interesting yeast strain.” 

Upslope’s Blood Orange Saison will be available in the following markets where Upslope is distributed : Colorado, Texas, Wyoming, Arizona, Montana and New Mexico.

Also note, local Colorado Upslope drinkers are encouraged to attend the brewery’s “Tuesday Tapping” on August 30th at both of its Boulder locations—Lee Hill and Flatiron Park. The Limited Release Blood Orange Saison will be available on tap, as well as available for purchase in 12-ounce 6-packs.
