Tap Room Fun
Great Divide is known for throwing great parties, and the 18th Anniversary was no different. Even the staff was dancing while pouring beers in the tap room (an impressive feat).
Great Divide Brewing Company Brewhouse
Great Divide has used this space to become the #7 All-Time Top Brewer according to BeerAdvocate and the #8 Best Brewer in the World according to RateBeer.com.
This traditional German style of wheat beer is fermented with lactobacillus to add a slight tartness. The clean and slightly floral flavors made it easier to handle the intense mid-day heat.
Named after a character on Chappelle's Show, this Tripel was brewed with caramel, cardamom, and coriander (CCC).
Gose is a salty and tart wheat beer made famous in Leipzig, Germany. This is Great Divide's second attempt at recreating this classic style. We believe they've nailed it.
Wolfgang is Great Divide's newest addition to the seasonal bomber club. Replacing Smoked Baltic Porter, this traditional German-style lager is a bit of a departure from Great Divide's typical brews. "On bottling days, you can hear our staff walking around saying, 'Ooh, Voolfgang!'."
At the Anniversary Party, there was an entire tent devoted to different variations of the Yeti Imperial Stout. As the day went on, different rare Yetis were released to the masses. Our favorite of the Yetis was the Heaven Hill. We're pretty sure bourbon and Yeti are two things that are just meant to be together.
Anniversary Party Line
Hundres of Denverites lined up around the block waiting to get into the party. The event sold out prior to Saturday so no door tickets were available.
