Upright’s owner and brewmaster Alex Ganum learned to drink using his father’s German pilsners. So it’s no surprise that the source of his inspiration is in Europe. Upright’s beers are still rooted in France, Belgium and Germany. But don’t expect a regular Triple, Double or Weizener from Ganum. Upright uses local ingredients only, which give the beers a typical Pacific twist. Upright combines craftsmanship and creativity resulting in subtle and quirky beers. Its sours are widely praised.
