Upslope Brewing Co. will be selling its latest Tap Room Series release this week.
According to the Boulder, Colo.-based brewery, Dunkelweizen is a 7.3 percent ABV dark wheat beer brewed with German dark wheat, pilsner malts, and Hersbrucker and hallertau mittelfruh hops that was first available as a draft-only option in 2011, although that version came in at 6.7 percent ABV.
Dunkelweizen is the third release in Upslope’s Tap Room Series, which consist of tap room exclusive beers that are packaged for the masses.
