It’s a good time to be a craft beer lover in the state of Arizona. Seeing how all of our local breweries have been growing is quite exciting. Some recent examples would be Santan’s expansion into other states and Arizona Wilderness’s recent award from Rate Beer for best new brewery in the world. Instances like this makes me excited for what the future holds. One exception to this that stands out to me is Old World Brewery.

At this point we are all well aware of the crazy growth of the craft beer industry. There are currently over 2,700 craft breweries in existence and brewing beer today. Amazing right? Unfortunately, a portion of those breweries may not last the long haul due to any number of reasons and skepticism is beginning to creep in when it comes to trying beer from a new brewery, especially anything that requires the brewers skill to be higher on the scale such as sours, barrel aging, Pilsners, or higher ABV style brews. Up until a few months ago, I was unfamiliar with Elevation Beer Company. During my opening of the World of Beer in Belmar, CO, I got my hands on a beautiful Berlinner Weisse made from the small brewery located in Poncha Springs, CO and I was extremely impressed.
Every year we release this list we struggle a little bit because there are so many people that are more than qualified to be listed. We understand our list may be different than some of you; however, we feel that we nailed the top spot of this years list. When it comes to our #1 spot, Helen Keller sums it up nicely, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”. Our top spot belongs not just to one person but to three awesome guys we like to call “The Beards”. Ladies and Gentleman, we would love to announce the guys at Arizona Wilderness, Jonathan Buford, Brett Dettler and Patrick Ware as the Most Beerlfuential in 2013.
