DENVER - December 6, 2017 - Great Divide Brewing Company will introduce seven new beers in 2018, including the addition of a new barrel aged program and the return of a Great Divide classic. New to the lineup are Car Camper Gose, Heyday Modern IPA, Rumble Oak Aged IPA, Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti, and the new Wood Werks Barrel Series including a Belgian-Style Sour, Flemish Sour Brown with Strawberries, and a Barrel Aged Brown Rye Ale.
“We have an amazing lineup for 2018 with some new beers and familiar favorites,” said Brian Dunn, founder of Great Divide Brewing Company. “Whether it’s introducing Heyday IPA, experimenting with guava and passionfruit for Car Camper Gose or bringing back Roadie Radler after its tremendous success in 2017, we are confident about the exciting changes happening in 2018.”
Great Divide Wood Werks Barrel Series
Wood Werks is Great Divide’s new lineup of limited edition barrel aged and sour beers. The new series kicks off in February with a Belgian-style tripel that was artfully soured for 15 months in red wine barrels and aged on plums. This rare spiced sour ale has notes of luscious stone fruit with a tart, dry finish, and hint of French oak. This first release will be followed by a Flemish Sour Brown Ale in May, and a Barrel Aged Brown Rye Ale in August.
The other newly developed releases include Car Camper Gose, a fruited German sour, Heyday IPA, a modern approach to an IPA, and another extension of the Great Divide Yeti clan, Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti. The final and exciting addition to the 2018 lineup is the return of Rumble Oak Aged IPA. Originally released in 2010 and then subsequently retired in 2015, Rumble is back by popular demand. The fan favorite will be released in May as part of the seasonal Tank Farm Series.
“Rumble is a classic Great Divide beer and had quite the following in its day. It was originally retired to make room for new styles but as we were looking at new releases for 2018, it felt natural to reintroduce the beer as part of our Tank Farm Series,” said Dunn.
