UpSlope Shower Beer Pairing

The Dr. Squatch team had the privilege to visit another kick-ass Colorado brewery to pair one of our soap scents with a truly unique and tasty shower beer.  This time we voyaged down to Upslope Brewing Co. in Boulder.

We were greeted by Katie, our pairing guide for the evening, and immediately treated to a plethora of beer for our sipping pleasure.

The founders of Upslope have always had a deep desire to experience the outdoors and enable their customers to do the same without having to leave behind the beer.  They are extremely loyal to the ‘beer can’ (it’s all they use) which they are happy to inform you is better for the environment and your beer.  Their love for our Colorado playground of nature insinuates a desire to preserve it so they are constantly striving to leave less of a footprint throughout the brewing process.

From Upslope’s ‘Our Story‘, “Protecting our environment is key to Colorado. That’s why we craft our beer with conscience. From recapturing the water we use in the brewing process, to installing efficient, three-phase electricity, to delivering our lightweight cans in a natural gas-powered van, we are finding ways to reduce the impact of our brewery on the planet.”

With no further adieu here is our Upslope Shower Beer Pairing

Beer:
Imperial India Pale Ale: Larger then your average beer in both size and taste the Imperial will take you on a journey with every sip.  The initial taste is woodsy and vibrant, and from there it takes you on a journey through floral and citrus notes.  The finish leads you right back to the Pine flavor, furthering your excitement to explore the next 18.2* ounces of this beer.   We were in love at first sip.

*Warning: Drink two of these suckers and you may end up with your shirt off dancing on the table, it comes in a 19.2 ounce can.

From the description on Upslope’s website, “Each barrel is brewed using six pounds of a unique blend of hops to impart subtle flavors of pineapple and melon to the central hop notes of citrus and pine.”

Soap:
Pine Tar: Any of our hard core Pine Tarites will tell you there is no alternative.  Loved for it’s vigor in exfoliation, woodsy scent and tough, black appearance it’s actually the subtlety of sweet orange oils mixed with that Pine that keeps guys coming back.

It was too perfect a fit not to make the connection between these two bold, larger then life, unapologetic favorites.

The camaraderie and energy of the employees at Upslope was inspiring.  No matter who you talk to there it’s quickly evident they are passionate about the company they work for and the beer they are putting out there. Big thanks to the Upslope team for letting us hang, we had an absolute blast!
