May 20th, 2014 Poncha Springs, Colorado– Elevation Beer Company® and Pitcher of Nectar Distributing are excited to announce a distribution deal that will bring Elevation to the Phoenix Metropolitan area and Tucson starting May 27th.
Elevation and Pitcher of Nectar Distributing (POND) have been in discussion for several months and are extremely excited to announce their relationship.
“We are excited to bring our Black and Double Black Series to another South Western state,” says Elevation Co-founder Xandy Bustamante, “We believe POND is a perfect match for us as a distributor in Arizona. With their highly knowledgeable sales team and love for all things beer, we feel that they will represent us well alongside their other great brands.”
Elevation will be launching with their year-round Apis IV, their Black Series Third Base Belgian Tripel, and their Double Black Series Signal De Botrange. An extremely limited amount of their 7437 Double IPA and 2014 World Beer Cup® Bronze Medal winner Señorita, an Horchata Imperial Porter, will also be available in Arizona.
“I fell in love with Elevation with my first taste of False Summit which I shared with Xandy and Carlin in AZ,” Says Tony Piccini Founder of POND, “I met up with them to discuss the possibility of representing their beer in AZ and we hit it off immediately. There was an instant connection because we all are in it for the love of the beer, period. After my visit to their brewery in Poncha Springs, I was hooked. These guys know what they are doing and we at POND are very proud to call them a partner.”
Elevation will then be sending all of their Black and Double Black Series seasonals and specialty releases to Arizona throughout 2014 and beyond.
Elevation Beer Company is currently distributed in their home state of Colorado, Texas, and now Arizona. The brewery has been open for just two years and has won eight medals for excellence and currently has eight beers rated 90+ on ratebeer.com.
