Great Divide Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout cans expected in November

Great Divide Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout

Great Divide Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is another one of the “old guard” in American barrel-aged imperial stouts. Additionally, it is among the most revered in the industry.

The year-round “Yeti” imperial stout spends at least 12 months aging whiskey barrels before it sees the light of day every November. The resulting beer is a big, bold 12.5% alcohol by volume beast of a stout.

The spirited aging process produces a hugely complex but mellowed Yeti, with its signature roasted flavors, hints of vanilla and oak, and a whiskeyed finish.

Other recent Yeti Imperial Stout releases include S’ mores Yeti and Mexican Chocolate Yeti.

Great Divide Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is slated for 16-ounce cans for the first time in November 2019.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel-Aged. Whiskey.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal Release.
Latest Return: November 2019

12.5% ABV

Himalayan inspired Great Divide Chai Yeti makes another fall appearance

Great Divide Chai Yeti

Great Divide Chai Yeti a new variation on the brewery’s widely popular imperial stout is returning for another fall. 

“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 spices, including cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla. The brewery states this beer is a nod to Yeti’s home region of the Himalayas.

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 a 22-ounce bottle and draft release, available now through December 2018.

Style: Imperial Stout (Cinnamon. Green Cardamom. Black Pepper. Ginger. Nutmeg. Vanilla.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft
