June Bottle Releases @ Black Project Spontaneous and Wild Ales (Denver) – 1290 S Broadway # A51, Denver, CO

Date/ Time: Friday, June 21- Sunday, June 23 from 2:00pm– 8:00pm

Details: We are excited to announce the return of LUNEX, a crowd favorite that hasn’t been released in over two years, and SUPERCRUISE: Temp | Cab Franc.

PLEASE NOTE: We will no longer be doing online sales to the public. These bottles will be released in the taproom starting at 2pm on Friday, June 21st, and be available while supplies last. For more information on the switch in sale format, check here:

LUNEX is one of our beers brewed within the standards of Methode Traditionnelle – 3 Year. It is a blend of 3-year spontaneously fermented beer with Bourbon barrel aged coffee beans from Corvus Coffee, added post-fermentation. We like to say it smells like all the delicious parts of coffee but without all the harsher flavors.

SUPERCRUISE: Temp | Cab Franc
SUPERCRUISE starts with wine grapes from locally-sourced, family-owned vineyards in Palisade, CO. Once the grapes have been destemmed and crushed, we allow the juice to rest for a few days – developing rich color and depth of flavor – before finally transferring the juice to neutral oak barrels along with our base Golden Sour. The beer then goes through a secondary fermentation while resting on the grapes, and after a few weeks is ready to bottle. Fruited at about half of what we do for Mach-Limit, the stonefruit character from the base beer is backed by bright fruit and soft tannins, yet the beer still shines through.

WeldWerks Invitational Release @Wiley Roots Brewing Company (Greeley) -625 3rd St., Greeley, CO

Date/ Time: Friday, June 21 from 12:00pm– 11:00pm

Details: 𝐖𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐲 𝐑𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐬 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐪𝐮𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐨

Each beer we create is unlike any other beer, because we have no interest in following the crowd. We pride ourselves in our commitment to take risks, embrace the odd, and push ourselves past what is expected. You drive us to be this way and we love you for it. That is why we are proud to introduce three brand new beers and two new frozen Slush variants today to be released the weekend of the 2019 WeldWerks Invitational Festival (SOLD OUT):

𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐢𝐚 𝐒𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐡
Sour Ale with puréed Oranges and Lemons, refermented with Pinot Noir and Syrah Grape Must
Available on-site and to-go
$𝟏𝟖 𝐩𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤 | 𝟏𝟔 𝐨𝐳 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤

𝐒𝐰𝐚𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬: 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐆𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬
East Coast IPA with Mosaic and Cascade
Available on-site and to-go
$𝟏𝟔 𝐩𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤 | 𝟏𝟔 𝐨𝐳 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤
One case per person limit | 30 cases

𝐖𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐒𝐩𝐨𝐨𝐧 & 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐬𝐤: 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐅𝐮𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐢𝐞
Double-mash Imperial Stout with Dark Chocolate, Cacao Nibs, and Vanilla
Available on-site and to-go
$𝟐𝟐 𝐩𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤 | 𝟏𝟔 𝐨𝐳 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤
One case per person limit | 30 cases

𝐅𝐫𝐨𝐳𝐞𝐧 𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐢𝐚 𝐒𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐡
Sour Ale with puréed Oranges and Lemons, refermented with Pinot Noir and Syrah Grape Must
Available on-site only

𝐅𝐫𝐨𝐳𝐞𝐧 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐚 𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐋𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐒𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐡
Slush with puréed Sweet Cherries and Limes with Vanilla
Available on-site only

𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐢𝐚 𝐒𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐡 starts as a kettle sour that uses a unique process to create a moderately-acidic base which allows us to add fruit and spices to the beer without becoming overly sour. By adding oranges and lemons, we can balance the sweet Pinot Noir grape must while adding a fruity citrus character with an additional layer of dark fruit complexity contributed from Syrah grape must.

This is our first beer-wine Slush hybrid made for easy drinking on the patio after gardening. Expect the same refreshing drinkability of Slush with a fun summer wine-lover’s twist.

𝐒𝐰𝐚𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬: 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐆𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬 builds upon our new pillowy soft East Coast IPA recipe with Mosaic and Cascade hops to create a rich fruit-forward IPA that is bursting with blueberry, peach, grapefruit, and tropical fruit notes with a big dank resin undertone.

This is the second release in the Swatches series, which uses all whirlpool and dry hop additions to create an IPA with full hop flavor and aroma with minimal bitterness that finishes creamy but not sweet. Swatches: National Grasslands adds a valley of lush hop flavors to a tropical island of fruit.

𝐖𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐒𝐩𝐨𝐨𝐧 & 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐬𝐤: 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐅𝐮𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐢𝐞 is the first release in our new viscous Imperial Stout series that uses a thick, non-barrel aged, high alcohol, high gravity malt recipe as a base for decadent baking ingredients. This beer starts with a double-mash and an eight hour boil. After fermentation, we added dark chocolate, cacao nibs, and vanilla to create liquid chocolate fudge brownies.

After the success of our Monstah series, we began an exploration into how we could push the concept of a pastry stout just a little further. Taking recipe design and process back to the drawing board, we’ve dreamed up a brand new series. This is not a typical pastry stout. This is the glutinous batter that is stuck to the wooden spoon and whisk after mixing. Wooden Spoon & Whisk: Double Fudge Chocolate Brownie is sure to satisfy the chocoholic deep down inside.

Doors open at 12pm on Friday, June 21, 2019

Forget about that lost shaker of salt, we brewed our margarita gose to bring some of the beach to you with Makrut lime leaves, sea salt and lime zest. This beer is a touch salty and a lot limey.

🎶We’ll have Jimmy Buffet tunes on all day for the release. Come waste away …

Great Divide’s 25th Anniversary Party @ Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver) – 2201 Arapahoe St, Denver, CO

Date/ Time: Saturday, June 22 at 2:00pm-6:00pm

Details: Way back in 1994, before the Rockies moved to LoDo and before brewers could be governors, a man with a business plan and a passion for high-quality beer opened Denver’s first packaging brewery. Though much has changed since then, Great Divide Brewing Co.’s dedication to beers with Bold Character has not. To celebrate 25 years, the brewery is bringing the party back to Arapahoe Street. On June 22nd, we’ll shut down the street and open up the brewery for a special anniversary celebration.

To prepare, we’re digging deep into our cellar and maxing out our pilot brew system to pour some exceedingly rare and exceptionally creative beers that you won’t see again.

Like Yeti Imperial Stout? We’ll have at least 14 variants including some old favorites (Chocolate Oak Aged and Oatmeal) and some new inventions (Maple Pecan and S’mores). PLUS, our 25th Anniversary BIG Yeti—a 13.5% ABV behemoth.

Prefer sours and barrel aged beer? We’re bringing back some popular Wood Werks entries, vintage Hibernation, a Jameson barrel aged saison and some other expertly crafted elixirs.

How about hops? We got those too. We took our popular Hazy IPA and increased the hop bill exponentially to create our 25th Anniversary Double Hazy IPA. We’ll also be unveiling a Brut IPA, a Double Juicy IPA and a Hoppy Pilsner.

Both 25th Anniversary beers will be available on draft at the party and available to-go in 19.2oz cans.

And, attendees will get a first look at the new Denver Pale Ale Artist Series #4 and a first taste of the soon to be released Great Divide Lager.

Beyond the beer, expect a great slate of live music, food trucks, lawn games, Yeti appearances and some unexpected enchantment. More details to come!

– We’re excited to offer bike parking through our friends at Bicycle Colorado. You can find their racks in the parking lot kitty-cornered to the entrance of the party.

-VIP ticket holders get unlimited pours of all available Great Divide beers, entrance into the event an hour early (1pm), a limited edition 25th anniversary t-shirt and glass plus access to the Colorado Party Rentals VIP bar.
