From Great Divide:

ROADIE GRAPEFRUIT RADLER was inspired by the annual BoulDurango, where some of Colorado’s most tenured brewers join up for a 400+ mile ride. Brewed with natural grapefruit puree, this easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma. Unique in its class, this Radler is dry and slightly tart, with just enough bitterness to keep both cyclists and spectators coming back for more. 4% ABV

ABV: 4.0%  |  AVAILABLE: Seasonal  |  SIZES: 6 pack, 15.5 gal and 5 gal kegs

INSPIRATION FOR THE ROADIE RADLER

Named both for the road biking cyclist (Roadie) and the German word for cycling (Radler), the Roadie Grapefruit Radler was inspired by Great Divide’s roots in the cycling community. As an avid cyclist, owner and founder Brian Dunn instilled his passion for cycling throughout the brewery from the very beginning. Great Divide has been a part of the Colorado cycling community throughout the years through the creation of the Great Divide Bike Team, annual participation from employees in the Bike MS race, and donating profits from our Tap Room Giving Program to organizations like Bike Denver and the Bicycle Racing Association of CO. Brian Dunn has also participated in the BoulDurango for the last four years where he and some of the most tenured Colorado craft brewery owners and employees ride the grueling 426 miles from Avery Brewing Co. in Boulder, CO to Ska Brewing Co. in Durango, CO over the course of 6 days. Together they ride over mountain passes and cruise across Colorado plains, all the while sharing their experiences, perspectives, and insights on the brewing industry and stopping for cold brews along the way. As a way to honor Great Divide’s roots in the cycling community and the comradery of events like the BoulDurango, the Roadie Radler was born. With artwork that was designed to create an image of the BoulDurango and the crew of Colorado brewery champions that face the ride each year, this beer is a nod to cyclists everywhere. So, whether you are riding over grueling mountain passes or just out for a quick pedal, the Roadie Radler is the perfect brew for any summertime cruise.
