The bells all are ringing,
Indeed, the people all singing,
For there is a time each old year,
When we release a very special beer.
It’s called Hibernation,
Following it, a cult fascination.
It’s malty and mysterious,
and tasty– you hearin’ us?!
No beef against summer,
Because it’s surely no bummer,
But, fall, thou never hast failed,
To keep us English-Style Old Ale-d.

Perhaps you prefer Hercules in 12oz bottles? Maybe you’d like to try one of of Yeti Clan series? Maybe you had a DPA in the Tap Room and you can’t find it at your local store, restaurant or bar. Good news, faithful friends. All of these problems can be solved!
We love being able to provide y’all with the bold, flavorful beers you’ve come to expect from us. One way we can continue to do so, is if you ask your local bar, liquor store or restaurant if they could consider carrying your favorite Great Divide draft or package. Everyone wins–you get the tasty Great Divide beer you want, the establishment nods to contented customers and we get to provide you with all the delicious beer you can drink.
Don’t see your favorite GD beer at your local liquor store? Make a request! Don’t see Hoss on tap and you could really go for a rye lager? Never hurts to ask!
Thanks for drinking Great Divide and cheers to many more beers!

As the sweltering sun hung high in the noon sky, he worked tirelessly. With a laundry list of tasks to complete before the day was done, he wiped beading sweat off his forehead and carried on. He was a hired hand for the old farmer and he’d given his word he’d earn his share. Grasshoppers popped in the growing barley and wheat and the quiet rumble of mooing cows filled his ears. As he worked his way through the field, he couldn’t keep his mind off her. Colette, the farmer’s daughter, had left him. She was known to be rather fickle, turning on her charms and then disappearing, as if she had never been there at all–leaving him broken-hearted, pining after the sweet, intoxicating tart.
As he turned the tractor back towards the house, he saw her. Indeed, he almost couldn’t believe it. Rubbing his squinted eyes, he wasn’t mistaken. It was her. Colette. “I’m only here to grab a few things,” she said. But he knew, even one day with Colette in the summer was something to treasure.
Colette is only back on the farm today only. Head on down to the Tap Room and give this sweetheart a try. We’ll be tapping one keg only. Once it’s gone, you’ll have to wait until next year to see this country beauty.

It’s no secret that the Yeti is pretty elusive. However, we’ve been hearing reports of more Yeti sightings than ever. Send us a pic when you spot one in the wild! Can you find Yeti below? Join the #YetiMafia today!

Thanks to Zymurgy Magazine for our recent accolades! They named us the 16th best brewery in their Brewery Rankings (tied with Rogue Ales) and 11th Best Portfolio (tied with Goose Island Beer Co.). Yeti was also named #43 in their Top Ranked Beers list. Cheers to great beer!
You can see Craftbeer.com’s rundown of the article here.
Man, it’s way too hot.
It’s only June, and we’re all
too busy sweating.

Here’s a nice write-up of the event, our new beer baby Wolfgang and our plans to expand from our pal Sean Buchan, aka Beertographer.

Here at Great Divide we see beer and food as a match made in heaven. Our handcrafted ales and lagers are excellent for pairing and using as an ingredient. Here are two great uses of our beer:
First, this tasty summer primer featuring craft beer ice cream from CraftBeer.com. Sweet Action is one of our favorite haunts here in the Mile High City and their Yeti ice cream is so delicious, we wish it was available all year long! You can check out the whole feature here: http://www.craftbeer.com/pages/beer-and-food/features/show?title=i-scream-you-scream-its-craft-beer-ice-cream

Also, don’t forget to check out this Colette ricotta recipe from The Beeroness (who, by the way, is a great resource for craft beer cooking!). This recipe is equal parts simple and delicious. Plus, look at that photography! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it: http://thebeeroness.com/2012/06/05/homemade-beer-ricotta/

Give these tasty, beery options a try and ring in summer the right way.
