Himalayan inspired Great Divide Chai Yeti is slated for fall

Great Divide Chai Yeti

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.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft
Debut: October, 2017 (Tentative)

9.5% ABV

The Next Great Divide Yeti: Oatmeal Yeti

A little while ago, Beer Street Journal mentioned that Great Divide (Denver, CO) would announce a new “Yeti” in the infamous series. Looks like we have our answer- Oatmeal Yeti. The base beer for each of the Yetis is a big imperial stout. From there, coffee, chocolate, or special barrel aging occur to make each one unique. For Oatmeal Yeti, rolled oats and raisins allow this beast to stand out.

Much like its legendary precedessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark. The addition of rolled out softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone, and the small amount of raisins addin the brew kettle creates a unique dark fruit character. Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a gentle beast.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Oats, Raisins)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
Arrival: TBA

9.5% ABV
