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.
