Elevation Beer Co. Releases Signal de Botrange & Raspberry Gulch This Spring
(Poncha Springs, CO) – Elevation Beer Company is set to release its two highly anticipated spring seasonals, Signal de Botrange and Raspberry Gulch, in early March.
Signal de Botrange (9.8% ABV) is a Farmhouse Ale aged in Chardonnay wine barrels and is part of the brewery’s Double Black series. Named for the highest tower on the highest point in Belgium, Signal de Botrange is brewed in tribute to the traditional farmhouse beers of the Wallonia region. First released in the summer of 2012, Signal was Elevation’s first ever barrel aged beer.
“Signal de Botrange has always been a favorite at the brewery due to the simple recipe and the incredible complexity that is achieved through aging in Chardonnay barrels,” says Christian Koch, Elevation Head Brewer and Co-Founder. “This year’s batch was aged for almost a year and has incredible vinous notes and pleasing aromas of ripe stone fruit.”
Raspberry Gulch (8.25% ABV), an Imperial Saison brewed with Raspberries, is brewed to evoke the coming of spring in the high country. Raspberry Gulch’s aroma is dominated by raspberries but is mellowed by a slight white pepper note, thanks to a nice dose of spicy Saaz hops. This year, Elevation Beer Company will be releasing Raspberry Gulch in four-packs of 12oz bottles, rather than in 750ml bottles as in years past.
“We are excited about the new packaging for Raspberry Gulch. The 12oz bottle four-packs are much more accessible and consumer friendly,” says Koch. “We increased the amount of raspberries for this year’s batch, giving it a huge fruity aroma and flavor. Everyone at the brewery is really looking forward to enjoying a few of these!”
Both Signal de Botrange and Raspberry Gulch will be available for purchase at Elevation’s tasting room in Poncha Springs (115 Pahlone Pkwy) as well as at over 900 locations throughout Colorado. Limited quantities of these two beers will also be available in Texas, Arizona, and Washington.
