Great Divide 21st Anniversary Sour Ale Debuts This Weekend

Great Divide 21st American Sour Ale

Great Divide 21st Anniversary beer is a departure from the previous birthday releases.

If you’ve been following Great Divide’s Anniversary Series, you’ve seen oak aged imperial IPAs, a strong ale with birch syrup, and a Belgian-style ale with grape juice. This year, the brewery is releasing a sour ale, aged in red wine barrels.

This American sour is a celebration of 21 years of brewing with Bold Character. This commemorative release opens up with a bright, tart, kiwi and citrus notes before mellowing out with a hint of oak and subtle white wine-like character. Soured with lactobacillus and brettanomyces and aged for 9 months in wine barrels, 21st Anniversary  is notably complex while retaining a delicate approachability.

Great Divide 21st Anniversary debuts on June 13th, at Great Divide’s second location in Denver on Brighton Boulevard.
