DENVER CO– May 20, 2016 – In June Great Divide Brewing Company will introduce Nadia Kali, the newest Tank Farm brew. Nadia Kali is an inspired saison with cross-cultural influence. Her ruby pink glow comes from a generous infusion of hibiscus while ginger root gives it a subtle spice and hint of woodsy maturity, and lemon peel adds a citrus tartness. 

"We were looking for an exciting new beer to add to our Tank Farm Series for spring/summer, & the brewers nailed it," said Anna Nadasdy, director of sales and marketing of Great Divide Brewing Company. "From it's lovely pink hue to the hints of citrus and spice, Nadia Kali is the kind of beer you dream of drinking in the Sunshine."

The Tank Farm series, which includes, Old Ruffian, Fresh Hop and now Nadia Kali, is an opportunity for Great Divide to showcase experimental styles outside of the seasonal six-packs or Barrel Aged beers. This series gives the brewers a chance to play a bit. 

To create this beer, Great Divide's brewers started with the idea of creating a summer saison. They wanted to make a beer that stands out and that meant getting creative with fruits and spices.  

"A summer saison was pitched to the brewers, & we were asked to come up with ideas to make it stand out," said Jacob Johnson, Great Divide Brewing Company brewer. "Eventually, after some initial tests we found we really liked how hibiscus added a new range of color and floral flavor, and ginger spiced up the beer to give it a spritziness that was both refreshing and bold. To round it all out, lemon peel was added as a dry spice to take it over the top and right into summertime."  

When deciding on a name and a new icon for this beer, Great Divide wanted to pay homage to the cultures where hibiscus is the most culturally and historically significant. Including imagery that reflects the light, welcoming, enticing nature of the beer was also a focus in choosing the colors and scenery.  

"This is ultimately a beer fit for all seasons," said Johnson. "It is very versatile but is especially suited for summer with the amount of juicy, fruity aroma & flavor that makes it such a refreshing beer. It is backyard ready but can be enjoyed on a cool summer's night as well."

Nadia Kali will be available nationwide all summer long.
