Great Divide Wood Werks Belgian-Style Sour will kick off a new barrel-aged series for the brewery on February 1st.
Denver, Colorado-based Great Divide’s most well-known barrel-aged releases Hibernation, Old Ruffian, & their Yeti Imperial Stout. Thanks to extra oak barrel purchases, more of these treats are available nationwide.
Even with more oak, Great Divide still has some small batch love to give – in the form of the new Wood Werks Barrel Series set to debut in February. 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the brewery’s original Barrel-Aged Series. At the time, nearly every barrel they had came from Colorado local, Stranahan’s Whiskey. Brewery founder Brian Dunn thought it was time to upgrade the program taking what he characterizes as “a more modern approach” to barrel-aged beers.
Great Divide Wood Werks Belgian-Style Sour has the honor of being the first release of this new era. A Belgian-style tripel ale has been souring for 15 months in red wine barrels on plums.
“This Belgian-Style Sour showcases our creativity and thoughtful approach to a Belgian-Style Tripel. It really is a labor of love and patience.” -Brandon Jacobs, brewing manager
Great Divide Wood Werks Belgian-Style Sour will be a 12-ounce bottle release, available nationwide starting in February. Look for a Flemish Sour Brown Ale to join the series in May, and a Barrel Aged Brown Rye Ale in August.
