Bottle release party!

Upright Brewing is hosting its first bottle release party Sunday January 10th.  We’ll have two special beers available for the first time and will be debuting some new and exciting draft beer as well. The most anticipated release is actually our very first batch brewed last March called Billy the Mountain. It’s a traditional English-style Old Ale that has been barrel-aged with a special yeast strain and cellared here in the Leftbank basement for over four months in the bottle. The Billy is ready to enjoy now but will mature gracefully for at least another year as the brettanomyces yeast continues to unfold new aromas in this very “live” beer. Our second release is simply titled Gose, a German-style wheat beer made with coriander and salt. Its history dates back to the early 18th century and is enjoying a bit of a revival here in Portland between ourselves and Cascade Brewing.

Come down and join us from one to six that afternoon. We’ll have special charcuterie out tailored to the beers along with bread and other small snacks. To keep up on other brewery happenings be sure to follow us on facebook and check out the brewery blog.
