Elevation Beer Company to Expand into Texas

Elevation Beer CompanyDreaming big has never been a problem for the owners of Elevation Beer Company. A brewery less than two years old has already built a reputation for making solid beers and is now preparing to expand distribution to another state. Here is their press release issued earlier this week outlining their plans for putting Elevation beers into the Lone Star state.

[PRESS RELEASE] November 20th, 2013 Poncha Springs, Colorado - Elevation Beer Company and Favorite Brands LLC of Dallas, Texas are teaming up to bring Elevation’s Black and Double Black Series of specialty and barrel aged beers to Texas.

“We are extremely excited to bring our beers to the great state of Texas.’ Says Elevation Co-founder and Sales Generalissimo Xandy Bustamante. 'Texas has a great community of craft brewers and craft-beer centric retailers and restaurants and we are excited to bring our beers down to Texas’ thirsty craft beer fans.”

Favorite Brands will start distributing limited amounts of Elevation’s seasonal Black and Double Black Series in 750ml bottles and draft to Dallas, Forth Worth, Austin, and Houston as soon as Elevation receives label approval. The first beers to roll out will include Elevation’s award-winning Apis IV; their Downpour a fresh hop Extra IPA; and Fanboy, a virgin oak-aged double IPA.

“The Favorite Brands team is absolutely geeked out, and excited to start our partnership with Elevation Beer Company. They know their beer, from a great Berliner Weisse, to my personal favorite, their Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout, Oil Man.” Says Greg LaMantia, Jr, owner of Favorite Brands. “Truth be told I hope the words ‘limited amounts’, turns out to be short lived as we expect them to be well received and in high demand. When you get good beer, and good brands you want to run with it, and Elevation has plenty of both.”
