Portland, OR – Despite recalling the conversation and having the willingness to write this one, we thought it time to finally mention that another release is coming from Upright. On Friday at 4:30 you are encouraged to stop into the brewery located just down the street from the Trailblazers. Featured on draft and in bottles will be an unnamed beer. Rather than attempt a name to personify the beer style that Alex and crew created they went with something uncommon.
Here is that Ezra Johnson-Greenough has to say regarding their pending release.
On Friday September 24th Upright Brewing is hosting a release party for its newest beer in the style of 70's and 80's British Punk Rockers who fought the law to death and glory in the clash of the lower class leftists with limited career opportunities.
Upright specializes in farmhouse-inspired brews which are historically working man's beers and so in the vein of the Punk Rock Warlords who wrote and played music for the poor and disenfranchised, we have decided to leave this brew both nameless and style-less and open to the interpretation of the thinking mans yob's.
Please join us for a release party at the brewery from 4:30 - 9 pm on Friday 9/24 with DJ Bogman (Abraham Goldman-Armstrong) spinning classic punk before this beer gets lost in the supermarket.
For those of you who live up north of Portland don’t fret. If you thought that the previous release of Late Harvest was consumed by all the beer geeks in Seattle, you are in for an awakening. Seems that only Vancouver, BC got some of this delicious, barrel aged goodness.
To make up for this Seattle will be getting a healthy dose of this Pilsner-esque beer.

Alex Ganum is the owner and head brewer at Upright. He grew up drinking his father’s German pilseners and his older brother’s Bells Porter before moving to Portland in 2002. After meeting several homebrewers he decided to give it a go and never looked back. Seven years later his love of brewing led him to open Upright, a brewery he thinks is as much part of the community as it is personal. When he doesn’t have beer on his mind Alex is probably thinking about what’s next in the kitchen or on his plate and what digestif to wash it down with.
