THE BLACK CAN BEER
North Boulder’s Upslope Brewing Company has released its black-canned Foreign Style Stout, a limited release available in several local liquor stores.
The 6.9 percent ABV stout, previously distributed to celebrate Upslope’s one-year anniversary, is described as “exceptionally smooth” with a roast flavor.
The Foreign Style Stout will be available through March. It’s also on tap at the Upslope taproom at 1501 Lee Hill Road, along with a Chili Pale Ale and Session Extra Pale Ale. Visit www.upslopebrewing.com to learn more.
HAPPY HOUR AT THE HARE
Bramble & Hare, the companion restaurant to next-door neighbor Black Cat Farm Table Bistro, has announced a daily happy hour with small plates, beer, wine and cocktails for $5.
The happy hour, running from 4 to 5:30 p.m., includes ricotta with pear butter and walnuts, a shaved apple salad, farmhouse soup and other farm-to-table specialties. Bramble & Hare’s happy hour beers are Fort Collins Brewery’s 1900 Amber Lager and Racer 5 IPA from California’s Bear Republic Brewing Company.
Some of the small plates on the happy hour menu are also available a la carte on the dinner menu, some for $5 and some for more. Bramble & Hare will also have a “daily community crossword puzzle” on an easel during happy hour. For more information, visit www.brambleandhare.com.
