Upright Brewing ... Now Upright?

If my Twitter feed didn't lie (and how could that happen?), Upright Brewing now has beer out. Two nights ago--that was the day the Blazers beat Houston--a keg of strong ale went on at Belmont. I figured I'd catch a pint yesterday and have an early review up for you today. Ummm, no. It blew, apparently that first night.

Anyone get to try it? Thoughts?

[Update: Bill has a review.]

Just posted something about it.

It was a tasty big beer; but its bigness is different from what Alex mostly wants to do, so you didn't miss the real debut.

I love when a new brewery becomes erect and new beer has become discharged! Ewwwww.... ;-}

Gah, why must I work for a company which employs the services of Barracuda's web filter?! They got you blocked, Bill… apparently, "Alcohol & Tobacco content" is verboten. Fortunately, they haven't yet caught on to Jeff… *knocks on wood*

I thought it was quite reminiscent of Fish's 10², but while the hops were just as floral on the nose, they seemed more subdued on the tongue (something for which I was thankful, as the 10² nearly made me gag - which isn't to say that it was super-hoppy or out of balance, just that something about that beer and a handful of others hits that specific nerve in the back of my tongue which really doesn't like hops) - no doubt thanks to the cask conditioning. I liked it a great deal, but I'm just as thankful that this won't be the norm… bring on the Belgians!

I was also very grateful that the Blazers squeaked one out that same evening, even though it was a difficult game to watch… thank Silicon Valley for TiVo, I could skip past all the idiotic [non-]calls.

Uprise Upright 2009!
(ya know, 'cause they're right next door to each other)

Ya like it when I talk dirty, eh!?

No, that just makes it more likely that the powers-that-be will flag the content as inappropriate… then no fun will be had by me. :-(

Who are the powers that be??

Nazi censors from hell? The moral majority Sphincter wholes?

Does anyone know if the brewery has opened for on-premise sales?

@Mark: Not yet I don't believe. See this.
