Perfect Pairings

June 12, 2012

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.

 

Willkommen, Wolfgang!

June 11, 2012

Our new baby is here! Wolfgang, our new Doppelbock, is finally here. Here’s the low-down from the label:

Originally called “liquid bread,” the Doppelbock style guided monks through periods of penitent fasting. Wolfgang has heavenly notes of caramel, dark fruit, and toffee balanced by a subtle hop character. While its revered history evokes an appreciation of austerity and sacrifice, this Doppelbock is a rich luxury—no repentance required.

It clocks in at 8% ABV and is a smooth, sexy way to start the summer. Fans of this traditional style and newbies alike will appreciate the nuance of this tasty brew.

Give Wolfgang a try and let us know–Facebook it, tweet it, check into it on Untappd, add it to your wishlist on Pintley or send a carrier pigeon our way!

An Ode to Chocolate Yeti

March 21, 2012

 

A peek from the clouds, that break we call spring,

When dew seems to sit, awaiting on gossamer string,

In our hearts we all know, it can mean but one thing.

A Yeti, so smooth, from its cave does appear,

A fearsome loud roar, in our ears we do hear,

Not a bear, but a different brute soon is quite near.

It’s chocolate and sultry with a cayenne pop,

In the hierarchy of beasts, it reigns at the top,

This Yeti is special; a delicious brew that is ready to drop.

Get your buns to the Tap Room, or any fair bar,

Because this Yeti’s elusive, it’ll soon be afar.

You’ll be pleased with this Yeti—we know we are!

They’re Baaaaack

March 15, 2012

 

It’s that time again, when warming temperatures and longer days beckon us to cast off the shroud of winter and get outside. It also means that three of our most-coveted seasonals return: Colette, Chocolate Oak Aged and 18th Anniversary.

All three seasonals will return April 1st and each offer something delightful and different.

Colette, our farmhouse ale, is a GABF silver medal winner and crowd favorite. It’s light, dry notes pair perfectly with the setting sun.

Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti is one iteration of our fearsome Yeti Imperial Stout. It’s brewed with cocoa nibs and cayenne pepper to give it a little extra something.

18th Anniversary Ale is our perennial celebration of doin’ business. This wood-aged Double IPA is a real palate-pleaser.

See you soon for a pour!
