Red Brick’s Willy Wonka Meets Dolemite Beer

Red Brick Thick & Silky

Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta, GA) will release a new chocolate-y offering this September. Thick & Silky Double Chocolate Oatmeal Porter is described as  “Willy Wonka meets Dolemite” and is a spin off of one of the brewery’s original porters from many years ago.

He runs the chocolate game in this city, and when it comes to all the haters he shows no pity. With his fine, foxy ladies sitting pretty in a tricked out 73 Cadillac SeVille, he’s down with the double chocolate oatmeal scene and keeping it real. So, if you crave satisfaction, Dick Silky is the man who’s got that action!

The New Yeti is Spotted

Great Divide Oatmeal Yeti

Great Divide Brewing’s new addition to the Yeti lineup has arrived. The no so mythical beer is a new take of the imperial stout, with the addition of oatmeal and raisins to the brew. Great Divide says Oatmeal is a “gentle beast.” Look for it now in 22oz bombers, and draft.

Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark.  The addition of rolled oats softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle create 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/ Oatmeal, Raisins)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft. Seasonal release

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.
