12 Jan Great Divide Yeti Is Our New Favorite Imperial Stout
In a world of creative craft beers, few stand out as much as Great Divide Yeti. It’s a drink that, unlike most craft beers, manages to be wholly original without being too much of a gimmick (watermelon beer, we’re looking at you). The original Yeti is a heavy imperial stout, as big as the behemoth it’s named after; clocking in at 9%, hoppy and full of rich flavor, like caramel and toffee, as well as the usual thick coffee head. A drink that’s worth checking out by itself, especially after a day hitting the trails (Great Divide Brewery does hail from Colorado, after all).
But Great Divide doesn’t stop there. In fact, if you like Yeti, they’ve got a whole Yeti Clan of drinks, each a seasonal at a particular time of, such as Velvet Yeti, a nitro stout; Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti; Vanilla Oak Aged Yeti, Chai Yeti; and straight up Barrel Aged Yeti. We’re partial to the Chocolate and Vanilla Oaked Aged, which are – as the name implies – aged in oak barrels. We’ll hold off on the Chai, but that piques your interest, Yeti has you covered. So maybe they get a little gimmicky on that end. But seriously, give Yeti a try. We think you’ll like it; there’s a reason it’s considered one of the most unique, best beer’s in the world year-after-year.
