Craft Beer Feature

During the late 80s, Brian Dunn founder of Great Divide Brewery spent 5 years overseas expanding his knowledge and passion for beer during his travels. Dunn eventually returned to Colorado, started homebrewing and went to graduate school. Upon graduation in 1993, when Denver’s craft beer scene barely existed, he set out to found what would eventually become one of America’s most decorated and celebrated craft breweries.

The Great Divide brewery started small in 1994, and in the beginning Dunn was the only full-time employee…brewing, bottling and selling to accounts all in the same day. As the brewery grew, the beer spoke for itself. Dunn’s beers were balanced, flavorful and representative of a lifestyle that is uniquely Colorado.

While Great Divide’s ethos may be globally-inspired, their beers are distinctly Denver.

Thanks to their hardworking, creative and passionate employees, Great Divide has grown into what it is today: winner of more than 18 Great American Beer Festival medals and recipient of 5 World Beer Cup awards.

Great Divide Roadie was named both for the road biking cyclist (roadie) and the German word for cycling (radler) and inspired by Great Divide’s roots in the cycling community.

Unique in its class, this Radler is refreshing and slightly tart, with just enough bitterness to keep both cyclists and spectators coming back for more. ABV: 4.2%

Great Divide Colette Farm House Ale is their homage to the saisons that Belgian farm workers have enjoyed for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, Colette is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats — a beer as refreshing as it is complex. ABV: 7.3%

A clean and crisp start with a smooth mouth-feel thanks to the oats, citrus and spice round out a refreshing finish.

Einstock Arctic Pale Ale Brewed 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle, where they balance three kinds of hops with pure Icelandic water to create an ale unlike any other. It can only be described as an Arctic Pale Ale and it’s truly one of a kind. Cascade hops give it American character, while Northern Brewer and Hallertau Tradition add just enough bitterness to make this ale refreshingly Icelandic – and to make everything else pale in comparison.

Mild, slight toffee, generous hop aroma and flavor from late hop addition.
