Exclusive Brewery Show: Upslope Brewery Showcase

Posted by connors in DefaultTag

A quartet of Upslopers (Upslopians?) offer glimpses of daily life at a brewery.  Tap Room Manager Chad Pieper finds the  personality pint profile eerily accurate.  Marketing Manager Katie Hill effectively ends the cans versus bottles debate: "You can't shotgun a bottle". Boulder Sales Manager Jack Walsh talks about the communal nature of craft brewers in and around East Boulder.  Brewer Sam Scruby cautions brewers that process is as important to quality as ingredients.  We also debate the merits of lager as the future of craft beer and preview the Global Craft Beer Festival.
