Beer Street Journal: Himalayan inspired Great Divide Chai Yeti is slated for fall
“One of America’s well-known imperial stouts is getting a new treatment in the near future. Lovers of chai won’t want to miss Great Divide Chai Yeti.
“Yeti” is synonymous in the beer world with a big, highly rated imperial stout. Variants include Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, Espresso Yeti, Oak Aged Yeti, and Oatmeal Yeti. Last fall, the brewery released Velvet Yeti, a nitrogen infused edition. Now, Yeti is spending some time with a few exotic spices.
Great Divide Chai Yeti is brewed with a plethora of chai related spices, including cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla.
Our beloved Yeti is going back to its roots with this Himalayan-inspired variation. Traditional Chai spices of cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla blend seemlessly with Yeti’s rich, roasted malt backbone for a spicy beast fit to tackle Everest.
Great Divide Chai Yeti is slated for 22 ounce bottles and draft. Tentatively slated for an October release, according to the brewery’s annual calendar.
Style: Imperial Stout (Cinnamon. Green Cardamom. Black Pepper. Ginger. Nutmeg. Vanilla.)
