La Cumbre is actively looking for appropriate distribution in CO and will be available there as soon as we can be. They started canning in June of this year. I was at Mile High in july when they were unpacking Pliny, and it was warm maybe 85ish. Their taproom is awesome to go along with great beer.
Anyone have insight on the status?
I did a side-by-side with two, one 10 days and one 7-8 weeks old and you could taste the difference. We are lucky here in Albuquerque to always have access to fresh cans of this while the clueless distributors keep pushing old IPAs into area stores.
MinorThreat Zealot 592 Apr 7, 2008 Nebraska. Very happy to get La Cumbre here soon. I was of course a skeptic having never heard of them and with 1000 breweries in the building, but I'll be damned if he wasn't right. Can't wait to see it in CO. ASak10 likes this. Better than heady topper in my opinion. I'll never get it again in the summer time. SalukiAlum and ONovoMexicano like this. I passed up a recent BeerJobber sale on the stuff holding out to buy it locally.
Community BeerAdvocate. Between La Cumbre and Marble, Albuquerque is making some serious big-time brews. This beer is fucking awesome!
Elevated is one of my favorite IPAs. Buena Vista? No, create an account now. If Firestone Walker's Union Jack and Double Jack can sit on local shelves for months, I'd say most just about any hoppy beer can run the same risk. Can't wait to bring home a few of these guys!
