ASHEVILLE, N.C. — UpCountry Brewing has released two new brews, a Stout and a Hefeweizen, in-house. The beers with their details are listed below.
Stiff Upper Lip English Stout, 5.9% ABV, 20 IBU
This dry, roasty stout brings you right into fall! Fermented with English yeast, this beer provides earthy notes of lightly burnt toast and chocolate. When paired with the slight bitterness from Fuggle and Mt. Hood hops, the roast forward malt character of this brew is balanced out for a perfect finish.
Trapped Under Weiss!, 4.9% ABV, 15 IBU
This cloudy, medium bodied hefeweizen leads with an intense aroma of cloves and banana. Balanced by a chewy wheat backbone and hints of pepper, this beer will have you Cry Out, I’m Trapped Under Weiss!
“Beer making at UpCountry is at an all-time high right now,” says UpCountry Brewing’s owner, John Cochran. “We’re loving all of these new recipes that the brew house is putting out. I can’t believe that we have twenty-three of our own beers on tap. It’s awesome.”
UpCountry will be tapping a new beer on Wednesdays for the next several weeks. Stay tuned for what else the brewery has in its beer lineup!
UpCountry’s other beer styles include a variety of saisons, IPAs, sours, stouts, and more for Asheville to enjoy. The brewery is located at 1042 Haywood Road in West Asheville and provides a full menu featuring craft beer, cocktails, and food.
