Default Am I the highest brewer in America?

No, it's not what you think. haha

My house is at ~11,200 ft elevation. I am curious if there are any home brewers here in the Rockies that might be close or higher. I highly doubt there are any professorial breweries this high, as Alma, CO near me is the highest incorporated town in North America, and they are only at 10,578. A quick google search came up with a brewery in Potosi, Bolivia, that is above 13k, so I guess I'm out of the running for the world title. :P

At that elevation, it should be around 190F.

I recall staying in Breck and unable to get a roaring fire going in the fireplace; I assume due to decreased oxygen.

It would burn, but not a satisfying burn. Good thing you only need 190 to boil.

The Breckenridge Brewery (which I've visited) distributes in Wisconsin. I assume they are "down" the hill from your home?

I'm fairly sure I am the lowest homebrewer in America.
