A bigger, bolder radler. Don’t miss Great Divide Roadie

Great Divide Roadie Radler can

Just in time for warmer weather will be Great Divide Roadie Radler, featuring the crisp flavor of grapefruit.

The brewery founder Brian Dunn is an avid cyclist. A radler, a German-style beer with it’s roots in cycling, is a perfect choice for a spring seasonal.

For years, Great Divide has been quite active in cycling, from the formation of the Great Divide Cycling Team, employees participating in the Bike MS race, and taproom donations to various biking organizations.

Great Divide Roadie Radler is a blend of fresh grapefruit purée, and a light ale. Trust us, it has some legs. Radlers are great hair of the dog beers, breakfast beers, and all day beers. The downside to the their fruity effervescence is their low ABV. So many are in the 2% to 3% range. Not only is this radler bright and fresh, it’s 4.2%. That’s more bang for your buck. We are 100% for it.

Brewed with natur al grapefruit puree, this easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma.

12 ounce cans and draft of Roadie  are hitting shelves starting in April, 2017.

Style: Radler (w/ Grapefruit)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: April, 2017

We’ve blended our Gangway India Pale Ale with our house-made grapefruit juice to create an India Pale Radler.
