Great Divide Fall Beer Releases

Great Divide Fall Beer Releases: Fresh Hop in a can, Hibernation Ale, Oak Aged Yeti and Velvet Yeti Nitro Stout.

Autumn has arrived and with it, a new group of Great Divide fall beer releases. Send our regards to Aunt Trish, but unfortunately an espresso-pumpkin spice-salted caramel-Frapp-a-scarecrow stout didn’t make our release list this year. Instead, we are thrilled for the return of some of our mainstay, seasonal favorites, Fresh Hop, Hibernation Ale and Oak Aged Yeti. We are also excited to announce the launch of Velvet Yeti Nitro Stout!

Fresh Hop returns this season with a brand new uniform and is now available in 6-pack cans. Only around for a few weeks out of the year, you can now take Fresh Hop with you on your fall foliage hikes, final camping trips or enjoy it outside while patio season lingers for a few more weeks. Once the weather takes that final turn and the air starts to get chilly, you can cozy on up with some Hibernation Ale or Oak Aged Yeti to keep you warm. If you find yourself in and around Denver, stop by for a taste of our newest Yeti clan member, Velvet Yeti. This lower ABV nitro Yeti variation is currently only available on tap in our tap rooms and in select bars around the city.

Fresh Hop is a labor of love meant to be enjoyed today. Brewed in the fall with wet, whole cone hops from the Pacific Northwest, Fresh Hop is the embodiment of seasonality. Don’t age it. Keep it cold. Drink it now. Savoring this delightful pale ale during harvest season ensures that its unparalleled grassy, citrus hop brilliance will remain uncompromised. 55 IBUs. Brewed since 2003. Packaged in cans only, Fresh Hop is now available in 6-packs.




Hibernation Ale has been our celebrated winter tradition since 1995. This robust, dry-hopped ale has a malty richness balanced with a complex hop profile and hearty, warming character.





Oak Aged Yeti is Yeti Imperial Stout’s sophisticated sibling. They may be from the same clan, but they have entirely different personalities. Oak aging gives a subtle vanilla character, rounding out Yeti’s intense roastiness and huge hoppy nature. Who says you can’t tame a Yeti?


Velvet Yeti is a 5% ABV Yeti variation that is nitrogenated. It has a velvety rich mouthfeel, with all of the big roasty malt flavors you expect from a Yeti, but at a more approachable 5%.
