Great Divide reimagines their 20 year old Denver Pale Ale

Great Divide Denver Pale Ale has officially been reimagined, in both recipe and artwork. The brewery celebrates their 22nd birthday this month.

For the last 22 years, Great Divide has called Denver, Colorado home. For 20 of those years, the brewery has been releasing Denver Pale Ale, an English-style pale ale. Two decades later, it’s time to change that up a bit.

Great Divide recognizes that drinker’s palates change over the years, about as much as the city of Denver has changed. Beer, like cities, are a living thing.

 “This city has changed a lot since we first launched Denver Pale Ale almost 20 years ago, and so have the palates of craft beer drinkers. The original Denver Pale Ale is a great beer, and has won a lot of awards throughout the years, but we decided it was time to update the beer to better represent everything that this city has become.” Brian Dunn, Great Divide’s founder and president.

Great Divide Denver Pale Ale can is being transformed in a “living” work of art. Every year, a new can will be released, wrapped in the artwork of a different local artist. This year, Josh Holland’s design was chosen.

Along with the new look, the brewery has reimagined the base recipe to capture the essence of their hometown Denver. This new edition of the pale ale boasts big citrus and pine flavors, finishing with toasted malts, and a slightly bitter finish.

Great Divide Denver Pale Ale (Artists Series) will be available in 6 packs in Colorado. The art can will be found across the United States in the brewery’s Candemonium 12 pack.
