Atwater Beer Buzz July 18


As promised, the weekly email is early in order to send out the menu for the Brewmaster’s Weekend coming up on Friday! Alex Violette, Head Brewer for Upslope Brewing Co., will be in the house on Friday & Saturday talking craft beer with everyone at the Brewmaster’s Weekend events.

Friday at 6:00pm in Atwater, our traditional Small Plates & Craft Beer Pairing will be hosted by Alex Violette and the Atwater on Gore Creek culinary team. Four Upslope craft beers have been the basis and inspiration for custom created small plates to showcase food & craft beer pairings. Each course will be introduced by Alex and the chefs, discussing the brewery, individual beers, inspiration, ingredients, and the overall pairing. The menu will be as follows: 

Upslope Session Pale Ale
Herb Crusted Alaskan Cod
grilled champagne grapes, champagne buerre blanc

 Upslope Craft Lager
All-American Corn Dog
handcrafted mustard, yellow tomato ketchup
fresh peach chutney 

Upslope Belgian Pale Ale
The “TLT”
smoked organic turkey, lettuce, heirloom tomato
Cape gooseberry, chimichurri mayonnaise 

Upslope Imperial IPA
Sweet Onion Popover
grilled peaches, Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese 

We do encourage reservations, so email Laura or call 970/479-1514 to save your seats! It’s $25/person, and a fantastic opportunity. Join us! 

Saturday from 4 – 7pm will be our Meet the Brewmaster event in Fireside Bar. Alex will be pouring a variety of Upslope craft beers and be available for discussion. This is a complimentary event, and both events are open to the public. 

All weekend there will be an Upslope Brewmaster’s Weekend Feature on Upslope Brown, which will be $5. 

Next Wednesday’s Craft Beer Tasting will be Breckenridge Brewery, and we look forward to finding out what Mike “Willy” Wilson will be bringing to show off. I’ll post the offerings on the Atwater on Gore Creek facebook page as usual. 

There aren’t any new items on the craft beer list since Friday, but we have a few items that are getting close to rotating, so stay tuned! 

Flights and Bites continues daily, with 50% off a small plate of your choice with the purchase of a craft draft or craft draft flight. The current flight continues as: 

  • Samuel Adams Summer Ale
  • Steamworks Colorado Kolsch
  • Elevation First Cast IPA

  • Ohara’s Irish Stout 

Looking forward to seeing you at our Brewmaster’s Weekend.

Thanks for your support!
