I'll be brief as there's nothing really complicated about Elevation Beer Company.
First and foremost, it's located on Poncha Springs/Salida, so it's in a beautiful area. The views alone can be motivation to make the trek.
In terms of the place, there's a normal sized tasting room with a 7-8 seat bar, a few tables, and some booths against the wall.
There are roughly 10 beers available on tap. Those range from their flagships ('Lil Mo, 8 Second, and First Cast), to their seasonals, BA limited editions, and 1-2 taproom only offerings. They also have cask firkins on Friday, which I was lucky enough to try. On that particular day it was a Mosaic dry-hopped First Cast. Want bottles? They have all of their currently available bottles including their limited editions if there are any in season. If you've never had their beers, they're all phenomenal. In fact, of the breweries outside the front range they're among the best you'll find in all of CO.
Hungry? They do have some snacks and small bites, but it isn't a brewpub or anything like that.
They have plenty of souvenirs, though.
I'm a big fan of their beers and am glad I made the trek out.

Pros - great beer, Salida it beautiful, cool ambiance with the wooden table bar and views of brewhouse.

Cons - their patio has a fence which you cannot see the mountains from most angles (subject to change I am told), they only had 1 beer on tap I couldn't buy in stores (I enjoy seeing what they are playing around with when I visit the taproom)

Overall - I would go again on another trip down south for a 14er, but I hope the fences are lowered and they have more experimental beers on tap. That picture is NOT accurate.
