The beer was the winning entry in Craft Beer Co’s National Homebrewing Awards in 2014 and was then brewed in collaboration with Dark Star where 8800L was brewed in early 2015.
Level Up is an American red ale. It began life as a home brew recipe with a 5.8% ABV and a different balance of crystal malts. Elusive’s owner Andy said: after four years of obsessing over brewing at home and attempting to learn and perfect as many different styles as possible, I took the plunge and opened Elusive in early 2016. We have a core range of five mostly American-inspired beers and like to play around with many different recipes and styles beyond that – from classic English styles through to Belgian and German.
