PONCHA SPRINGS, CO— Elevation Beer Company, the official brewery of Monarch Mountain, will help the mountain celebrate 80 years of independence in the Arkansas Valley this season with the specialty release of Monarch Throwback. This Red Ale will be available on draft and in 12-ounce cans at Monarch Mountain and Elevation’s tasting room beginning September 9th and available across Colorado beginning September 16th.
Powered by independence, precipitation, and their local community, Monarch Mountain and Elevation decided to brew a crowd-pleasing, easy-drinking Red Ale to commemorate the Mountain’s 80th anniversary.
Red Ale is a true throwback— a classic beer brewed true to style! Crystal malts and Munich malt provide a strong malt character that is perfectly balanced with a touch of Magnum hops. Weighing in at 5% alcohol by volume, you can definitely throw back a few of these at lunch and still get some afternoon runs in.
Throwback Red Ale will be released in cans and on draft, Friday, September 20 during a special release party at the Elevation tasting room. Come dressed in your best throwback ski gear and party with the Monarch Mountain and Elevation crews from 5-8pm enjoying happy hour pricing on Throwback Red Ale and free koozies with the purchase of Red Ale six-packs. Come prepared with your collection of old Monarch Mountain passes to win prizes for Oldest Pass, Largest Previous Season Pass Collection, and Best Season Pass Picture.
