DENVER, CO – June 29, 2016 – With the start of summer officially here, Great Divide Brewing Company has released several seasonal beers to quench your thirst, 22nd Anniversary Dark American Sour Ale, Hoss Oktoberfest Lager, Nadia Kali and Oatmeal Yeti. 

“Each year we strive to create an anniversary beer that showcases our history & how we are continuing to grow and move forward,” said Anna Nadasdy of Great Divide Brewing Company. “22nd Anniversary is a beer that pairs well with every season, but in the case of summer, the black cherry notes and tartness are a refreshing way to relax on a summer night.” 

As part of Great Divide’s Barrel Aged Series, 22nd Anniversary Dark American Sour Ale (8.7% ABV), is an expert blend of bold character, culminating 22 years of craft and ingenuity. Aged in red wine barrels, this robust offering is as sophisticated as it is sour. Notes of black cherry jam and tobacco are countered by a welcoming tartness and tannic oak finish that lasts longer after each sip. 

Hoss (6.2% ABV) is based on the Marzen lagers of Germany. This beer has rich layered malt notes with hints of cherry and dark fruits dominating the palate. The unique addition of rye imparts a slightly earthy, spicy character. Hoss finishes crisp and dry, and its brilliant red-orange color is a toast to the sunsets that make the perfect backdrop for this beer. This will be the first time Hoss is available in cans. 

Nadia Kali (6.3% ABV), the newest addition to the Tank Farm Series, 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. 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. 

The Yeti Series is full of beers that are big, bold and dark and Oatmeal Yeti (9.5% ABV) is all of that, just a little softer. By adding rolled oats to the grain bill, Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone softens. A small amount of raisins are added in the brew kettle to create a unique dark fruit character. 

“This season we wanted to create a portfolio of warm weather brews that delight and refresh the palate with exciting flavors. These four beers do just that,” said Nadasdy. 

These beers will be available nationwide from July through September.
