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.
