Elevation Beer Company
A Note on This Beer
You probably started your craft beer journey the same way you start a hike -- at the bottom, with easy-going Lagers, Ambers, and Fruit Beers. Then, like the trail’s gradual incline, you’ll ascend into more challenging pursuits like IPAs and Imperial Stouts.
Eventually you’re halfway up the mountain, you can sense the intensity rising. Perhaps you’re telling yourself, “I’m not sure I wanna climb much higher.” But that’s only the beginning of the real craft beer adventure. If you’re a little daring, you can taste the peak of craft elevation with beers like Barrel-Aged False Summit.
From Colorado’s mountain dwelling boozemasters at Elevation, False Summit amplifies everything about drinking beer. It’s built upon a Belgian-style Quad base, which accelerates malty fruit notes merely hinted at in other beers. An 11% ABV sparks a liquor-like edge that catalyzes flavors to the forefront.The apex? False Summit is aged in Breckenridge Bourbon Barrels, an award-winning distillery located just north of the brewery.
Just a warning, this isn’t a daytime hike kinda’ beer -- this is the epitome of a real trek. Drink too fast and you’ll end up laying down halfway to the summit. Instead, sip slowly and let the vanilla warmth lead way to candied plums, dates, and molasses accents. Let it sit a while...the mulled wine flavors will lead into a boozy, sweet finale.
When you finish the bottle, your head might spin a little in that satisfying way it feels to crest a cool mountain peak. Maybe it’s the booze talking, or maybe it’s your palate getting acclimated to a bold, brand new experience in False Summit. Sip, contemplate, and enjoy. You’ve conquered a mountain of flavor, you deserve to take it all in.
