Great Divide May Beer Releases
5 Beer Releases Headed Your Way!
What’s better than 2 beer releases? 5 beer releases, that’s what! We’re diving into summer face first with 5 beer releases this May. Which may have you thinking, “Great Divide, you crazy”. Yeah, crazy about beer! Check out the 3 newcomers and 2 Great Divide favorites available starting this May.
Rumble Oak Aged IPA
Let’s kick things off with a little throwback, shall we? Rumble Oak Aged IPA is back for the first time since 2015 and now in cans! This beer was discontinued from the seasonal lineup three years ago to make room for new additions and we’re excited to re-introduce this cult-favorite back into the market. Rumble IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy-handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. An oldie but a goodie, Rumble is back!
Vanilla Oak Aged Imperial Stout
NEW YETI ALERT! That’s right, we’re introducing a brand new Yeti into the family. Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti is the next flavor evolution for our cherished imperial stout. Sweet vanilla tones meld into the oak characteristics as the two flavors support and enhance one another. A pairing fit for a beast, the vanilla and oak are uplifted by the bold and roasty character we all know and love from Yeti. Available May through August, this elusive beast will comfort you by the campfire all summer long, if you can find it.
Wood Werks No.2
Also new to the crew, the next edition of our Wood Werks barrel-aging series is a complex sour beer aged for 12 months and brewed with strawberries. This Flemish Sour Brown Ale with Strawberries was aged in red wine, whiskey and bourbon barrels, then masterfully blended for incredible depth of flavor. Notes of bread pudding, figs, and an earthy undertone round out this tart, complex sour. Only available in limited quantities through June, once this gem is gone, it’s gone for good.
Roadie Grapefruit Radler
Raise your hand if you’re excited to have Roadie Grapefruit Radler back! It’s been a long winter without this tasty edition in our beer fridges. Brewed with natural grapefruit puree, this easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma. Unique in its class, this Radler is refreshing and slightly tart, with just enough bitterness to keep both cyclists and spectators coming back for more. If you’re looking for a good time this summer, call Roadie.
Heyday Modern IPA
Last but certainly not least, we’re introducing our newest year-round beer, Heyday Modern IPA. If you haven’t heard about our new Modern IPA then you probably live under a rock (not really but it is kinda a big deal). Heyday is an IPA for the modern Bold Character. Abundantly hopped, light in body, and low on bitterness, Heyday shines with notes of tropical fruit, berry, and melon. The complex hop profile is complemented by a crisp malt character for an approachable IPA fit for any occasion. And we’re so damn excited about this beer that we created an entire campaign dedicated to Heyday! Stay tuned to learn more about how you can #HaveAHeyday and win some goodies all summer long!
