(Boulder, CO) - Who doesn't love an ice cold Tecate every once and awhile? Mexican beers, spicy food and summer go hand in hand and bringing beer all the way up from Mexico when we have such a vibrant craft beer scene here in Boulder has always seemed a bit silly. For years we have been pleading with local brewers to make us something that fulfills our need for Mexican lagers. Enter Upslope Brewing Company, a new microbrewery that taps into Colorado's active lifestyle by offering superior quality hand-crafted ales in cans for the on-the-go beer enthusiast. They agreed to collaborate with us on an easy-drinking, thirst-quenching lager with a dry crisp finish, the quintessential Mexican-Style Lager. After several batches, numerous beer tastings, and a little bit of hard work we all came to a decision, batch number five was the winner. Top Rope, Mexican-style craft lager was born, the artisanal, craft-minded answer to Corona, Sol, Presidente, Kalik, Belikin, etc.
In celebration of the collaboration Centro will be holding a release party on July 25th from 5-7pm. Live music, $3 pints of our Top Rope, Mexican-style craft lager, and tasters from Upslope's IPA and Pale Ale will be available.
The release party will be at Centro Latin Kitchen & Refreshment Palace, 950 Pearl Street, Boulder CO 80302, 7/25 5-7pm.
