Synopsis – Foodies West, Matthew Cutter, Founder, Upslope Brewery, Boulder, CO

Matt Cutter, founder of Upslope Brewing Company, started out home brewing and wanted to become involved in the brewing community. He came up with a business plan in 1996 during an entrepreneuralship class and got together with a couple guys from Boulder’s Left Hand Brewery. They got to the launching point; everything went together except for the money. "We all went off on our different directions.” Cutter went on the project management path, where he got his first taste in manufacturing start up. He thinks this played a part in keeping his plans to open a brewery alive. In 2007, he revisited his brewery dreams and rewrote the business plan. “The world of craft beer in Colorado had matured to some degree,” Cutter described how things had changed during the time he wrote the first plan and this one. “It wasn't necessarily about putting out the best quality product. It was more about making an investment during a time when craft beer was growing very quickly. In other words, there was fall out from that during the late 90s/early 2000s."Pages had taken his white collar conservative lab job at Nestle Argentina in Buenos Aires, shoved it, and followed his dream to the Patagonian tip where rugged outdoor romance prevails. The little town he moved to, Ushuaia, ranks among the world’s southernmost. Some of Pages’ friends suggested he turn his makeshift brewery into something more official. In 2000, they became his partners, got a bigger space, and built the world’s southernmost brewery. They labeled it Cerveza Artesanal Beagle, named for H.M.S. Beagle; the Royal Navy ship on which 22-year-old Charles Darwin sailed to points south, including the Galapagos Islands.
