Great Divide’s Denver Pale Ale Artist Series #3 Featuring Rachel Jablonski

June 28, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

Great Divide Brewing Co. is out with a new label for its Denver Pale Ale as illustrator Rachel Jablonski takes the torch from John Vogl for the third iteration of the brewery’s Artist Series.

Featuring a man relaxing on a hammock as he sips a beer with an eye toward the city and mountain skyline, Jablonski’s design will now adorn cans of Denver Pale Ale, the brewery’s piney and sessionable staple. Rounding out the composition are iconic Denver symbols such as a hiker, the state capitol, skis, a hawk and a deer.

Great Divide — which at 24 years old is one of Denver’s older breweries — started the Denver Pale Ale Artist Series in 2016 shortly after opening its new RiNo location. Director of Marketing Shannon Berner described the series as a way to showcase local artists and pay tribute to the Mile High City that the brewery calls home.

Great Divide’s Denver Pale Ale Artist Series #2 Featuring John Vogl

May 31, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

Last June, Great Divide took their iconic, but somewhat dated Denver Pale Ale and reimagined every aspect of the beer. Not only did its 20+ year old recipe receive a facelift, evolving from an English to an American-Style Pale Ale, but it’s label design was re-imagined for a newly introduced canned format.

Paying homage to the artistic roots associated with its new Barrel Bar location’s home in the River North Art District, Great Divide’s yearly rotating Artist Series features the work of a new local illustrator each year.

Great Divide Brewing Co. Announce Changes to their 2017 Beer Lineup

January 12, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 5 min

Founded in Denver in 1994, Great Divide is one of the most decorated breweries in America.

And while holding down the proverbial fort for two plus decades require consistency and continuity in product, branding and ethos, that doesn’t mean a brewery doesn’t enjoy putting things on the back burner and brewing up something new. Great Divide has announced their overhaul for 2017 beer releases, and sure, some things will take a hiatus, other gems will get a chance to shine. We’re talking brand new year-round beers, changes to barrel-aged beers, new packaging options and new brews headed to cans!

Ultimate 6er | Christmas Cookie & Beer Pairings

December 14, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

It’s that time of year again for Christmas Cookie and Beer Pairings! Our first edition of this pairing theme kicked off last year as you may remember, and I was very excited to bring it back for a second time this year. I was torn between sticking to all American brews for this year’s edition or if I should add some of those fantastic Belgian Christmas Ales in the mix, but then decided that this year’s version should be strictly All-American. There were definitely some great options for pairing. Also, just like last year, I did some homemade cookies and some store-bought for those of you that like to bake and for those of you that would prefer not to. Now let’s get on to the goods!

Cooking with Beer | Grilled French Toast with Rumble Syrup

August 7, 2014 | 1 Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

You’ll never eat regular French toast again. Really, I’m not kidding, you won’t. Also, you most definitely will not go back to that plain, boring pancake syrup found hidden in the aisles of Safeway. Just. Say. No.

With this recipe, I shall convert you to a lover of the oaked goodness that is Rumble syrup. In case you need a little extra convincing, I’m throwing it on top of grilled French toast… that is first cooked in bacon fat. Yeah, you read that right – French toast, cooked in bacon fat, then grilled and finally topped with a glorious syrup made from a fantastic oak aged IPA. Let’s get ready to Rumble! Read More

Rhinegeist Brewery | Citra Tooth Tiger

Rhinegeist Brewery – Citra Tooth Tiger Imperial IPA

9% ABV

95 IBU

Today’s breweres have taken beer, above and beyond being just beer. In some cases this has evolved to near obsession, especially when it involves tracking down a rare brew. Sometimes keeping tabs on these fleeting offerings can be difficult, but the challenge just adds to the overall experience – that is if you can manage to actually land a bottle or two. Another trend that has helped provide a positive impact on the craft beer scene is taking an already great beer and enhancing it with the addition of one or two more ingredients. Yeti Imperial Stout, by Great Divide Brewing Co., is a great example of this – oatmeal, chocolate, espresso, oak aged, barrel aged.
