Great Divide Brewing Company Releases Second Quarter Seasonals

DENVER - April 23, 2018 - Great Divide Brewing Company introduces two new seasonal beers during the second quarter – Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti and Wood Werks No. 2 Flemish Sour Brown Ale. Meanwhile, Rumble Oak Aged IPA rejoins the lineup and seasonal favorite Roadie Grapefruit Radler makes its triumphant return to cans for the second year.

The newest release in Great Divide’s Wood Werks Barrel Aged series is a complex sour beer aged in red wine, whiskey and bourbon barrels for 12 months and brewed with strawberries. This limited release is launched alongside Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti, a new iteration of their classic Imperial Stout with the perfect flavor combo to complement its Yeti series counterparts.

The brewery also welcomes back Rumble Oak Aged IPA and Roadie Grapefruit Radler this May.

“Rumble was discontinued from the seasonal lineup three years ago to make room for new additions and we’re excited to re-introduce this cult-favorite back into the market,” said Shannon Berner of Great Divide.

And with the success of Roadie Radler in 2017, the brewery is looking forward to getting Roadie cans into even more beer drinkers hands this summer. “Make sure you get some Roadie while you can. We know from last summer that it goes quickly and you’ll miss it when it’s gone,” said Berner.

Wood Werks No. 2—Flemish Sour Brown Ale with Strawberries was aged for 12 months in red wine, whiskey and bourbon barrels, then masterfully blended for incredible depth of flavor. Notes of bread pudding, figs and an earthy undertone round out this tart, complex sour. The second in Great Divide’s new Wood Werks series, this gem is best savored slowly. Available in 12oz bottles and draft May through June. 9.7 percent ABV.

Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti is the next flavor evolution coming out of the brewery’s cherished Yeti clan. Sweet vanilla tones meld into the oak characteristics as the two flavors support and enhance one another. A pairing fit for a beast, the vanilla and oak are uplifted by the bold and roasty character we all know and love from Yeti. Available in 22oz bombers and draft May through August. 9.5 percent ABV.

Rumble Oak Aged IPA, is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, and gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. Available in 6-packs and draft May through September. 6.2 percent ABV.

Roadie Grapefruit Radler 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. Brewed with plenty of natural grapefruit puree and zero soda, this easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma. 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. Available in 6-packs and draft May through August. 4.2 percent ABV.

Great Divide Brewing Company Wins Competitive Grant to Launch Community Recycling Program

DENVER - April 18, 2018 - Great Divide Brewing Company has been awarded a $16,000 grant to launch a recycling program in the RiNo neighborhood. The funding is part of the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) competitive grant program, which is administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). The brewery will use the grant to establish themselves as a community recycling center for small manufacturing businesses in the RiNo neighborhood.

The inspiration behind becoming a hub for a community recycling program came about when the Great Divide Green Team started researching ways to recycle, polypropylene grain bags and shrink wrap, items in which recycling centers do not take unless the items are baled (compacted into blocks that can be stacked and easily transported). Without a baler, these streams would go directly to landfills.

“We estimate that we use 2,000 lbs of polypro grain bags a month, and all of this was going to the dump,” said Erin Cox, sustainability coordinator at Great Divide. “We realized if we were struggling with recycling these items, then surely our neighboring breweries were also having the same issue.”

Upon receiving the grant, Great Divide became registered as an official recycler in the state of Colorado. The brewery purchased and installed two balers and a pallet scale which weighs recyclable materials and can help participating businesses understand their diversion rates and impact. This spring, Great Divide is launching a pilot program with neighbors Bierstadt Lagerhaus and Black Shirt Brewing to ensure that the community recycling program is efficient and runs smoothly for all involved. Once the program is finalized, Great Divide will launch the official community recycling program and open up its recycling capabilities to other RiNo small businesses in the fall.

“At the end of the day, this grant serves as a way to ensure that we’re impacting the environment as little as possible,” said Cox. “With these new resources, we are now able to not only bale our own waste streams, but can handle our neighbors’ recyclable byproducts as well.”

Breweries and small businesses that are interested in being involved with Great Divide’s recycling program are encouraged to email quality@greatdivide.com.

Funds are awarded to businesses, local governments, nonprofit groups, and schools and universities throughout Colorado. The grant program is under the authority of Colorado’s Pollution Prevention Advisory Board.

“Parry's Pizza is tapping 48 beers for this years tap takeover. We only have 30 beers on tap at our brewery, so we thank David Parry and the entire Parry's Pizza team for allowing us to drink an additional 18 beers!” said Ryan Minior, Colorado sales manager at Avery Brewing Co. “They have been great partners over the years and we look forward to throwing the biggest and baddest event with them every April.”

The concept for this out-of-this-world takeover came about when the restaurant and bar opened its first beer-centric location in Highlands Ranch in January of 2012. Parry’s decided then to launch a key event for craft beer enthusiasts in the suburbs and beyond.

This year Parry’s Pizza seeks to build a tap list cultivated to each location with specialty beers that rarely leave the Avery Tap room, barrel-aged one-offs, and vintage kegs from Adam’s cellar.

Participating Parry’s Pizzeria & Bar are  Castle Rock (5650 Allen Way), Greenwood Village (5970 S Holly Street), Highlands Ranch (9567 S University Blvd), Johnstown (4874 Thompson Pkwy), Longmont (1232 S. Hover Street), Northglenn (100 E. 120th Avenue), and Northlake (6851 Northlake Mall Dr. Charlotte, North Carolina).

“Avery has never held back and neither has Parry’s,” said Katie Nierling, beer buyer at Parry’s. “We will always feature the classics that helped build Avery into the brewery that it is today, but we also want to showcase that they are not slowing down—they’re still innovating and producing really great beers.”

Placer Pale Ale will be a limited release that is available through April.

“Most versions of the New England style trend are IPAs but ours is a pale ale,” said Steve Indrehus, president of Tommyknocker. “We wanted to create a standard daily drinker that is as smooth and balanced as can be.”

Placer Pale Ale balances a light, crisp, malt character with an abundance of hop-derived aromatics and flavors from the hops. The fragrant nose is fresh citrus, tropical fruit, and peach. Bold flavors mix with dank notes of zesty citrus and fresh pine. ABV: 6.8% | IBU: 82

Another easy-drinking beer coming to market is Palisade Peachwood Cream Ale, a beer that uses wood staves from peach trees in Palisade to create an easy-drinking crowd pleaser with notes of peach in both the aroma and mouthfeel.  ABV: 4.5% | IBU: 22

For standard IPA purists, Tommyknocker will release TK IPA, a beer that utilizes Chinook, Crystal, Summit, Nugget, Bravo, and Willamette hops. These six varieties hits all of the right notes offering an alternative to year round favorite Blood Orange IPA. ABV: 7.3% | IBU: 82

Maxline Brewing to Expand Taproom and Brewhouse

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Feb.  12, 2018 - Maxline Brewing is excited to announce that they will be expanding their brewery and tasting room space in the late spring. The family-owned brewery quickly received a warm welcome from the Fort Collins community, and experienced tremendous growth since it opened in 2016.

“We realized after only six months of operation that we didn't have enough space in the tasting room during inclement weather,” said Kevin Gearhardt, Maxline co-owner. “While we knew that we would want to expand at some point in the future, and our facility design and lease were built around that premise, I never expected that we'd start working on expanding so quickly.”

With the expansion the brewery will more than double their current square footage, going from 1,950 square feet to 4,450 square feet, with significant updates to their brewhouse and tasting room. This includes an expanded taproom with additional private meeting and event spaces. The brewhouse will welcome three more fermentation tanks, new lab equipment, a barrel aging space, and canning line. The new equipment and canning line will help increase Maxline’s production capacity, paving the way for more experimental beers and greater distribution into the Front Range.

“What we'd like to focus on going forward is the re-imagining of our seasonal and one-off catalog toward a more adventurous and unconventional slant, highlighting some interesting and local ingredients,” said Shawn Woodbury, Maxline brewer. “We are taking more inspiration from cocktail and cuisine traditions to push the boundaries while still remaining approachable and drinkable as we go forward.”

Maxline Brewing anticipates that the expansion will be complete just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Details for distribution, as well as an opening day party to celebrate the company’s massive undertaking, will be announced at a later time.

“I hope to see 6-packs of Maxline Irish Red for sale in the tasting room by our second anniversary,” said Gearhardt.

About Maxline Brewing
Fostering craft, community, and culture, Maxline Brewing is a neighborhood brewery located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Maxline’s commitment to quality malt, hops, water, and yeast mirrors the brewery’s passion for unique and rich craft beers.

About Collaboration Fest:
Collaboration Fest is the original craft beer collaboration festival that showcases the collaborative nature of the craft beer industry. Created by Two Parts and the Colorado Brewers Guild in 2014, Collaboration Fest pairs Colorado Brewers Guild members with breweries near and far to create unique, one-time-only beers for the public to enjoy. The Colorado Brewers Guild is a non-profit trade association representing Colorado craft breweries and brewpubs, and is dedicated to the improvement of business conditions and is an advocate for its members. Two Parts is a Denver-based event production and promotions company that coordinates with the best restaurants, bars, music venues, and other fine establishments to create craft experiences.
