Great Divide Brewing – (Whiskey) Barrel-Aged Yeti Review

IMG_2202All You Need to Know

Brewery: Great Divide Brewing
Style: BA Imperial Stout
ABV: 12.5%
My Cost: $29 (!)
Glassware: Snifter
Temp: 60°F
Availability: Seasonal (Sept)
Purchased@: Friendly Greek

Quick Take: Easily the best beer I’ve had to date from Great Divide and I regularly enjoy their offerings. On just about every level, this beer does huge, chocolate stouts right. It is also one of the few beers I simultaneously consider overpriced and worth it. BA Yeti is on the sweeter side with no dark fruit or savory layers to give it added depth, but it is as close to a perfect BA Imperial Chocolate Stout that I’ve ever come across.

ece73d91-19b0-46bf-92e6-5bbdd073855c

Sierra Nevada has released further information on the 2016 collaboration beers coming to your local distributor later this year in honor of Beer Camp 2016. 30 breweries will participate, working together to brew the 6 styles listed below. The break down of what brewery is working on what is unknown, but the brewers who made each announcement in the brief Sierra Nevada youtube video are given credit for now. Whether the generally disappointing results of 2014’s case can be bested by focusing on fewer styles and more brewers input remains to be tasted. Hopefully these beers will be worthy of the sum of their parts.

DBRcast – Ep5 – Beer Year in Review 2015 – Part 2 – (Highlights)

DBRcast Logo 5 It’s Part 2 of DBR’s beer year in review. We’re joined by Oscar, a gassy Boston Terrier, and fellow beer enthusiast Elisha, fresh off a work shift and near comatose.

We also take time to do some wild speculating into the year 2016, discussing possible beer trends and our made-up beer innovations of the future. It’s our year in kick-ass beer, 2015.

DBRcast – Ep5 – Beer Year in Review 2015 – Part 1 – (Lowlights)

DBRcast Logo 5It’s DBR’s beer year in review. You know the drill; the lowlights, the highlights and some of the things in between. In Part 1, we talk a couple of the worst we had last year, breweries that disappointed, and the Empire (i.e. InBev) that cast its shadow over the beer industry in a big way in 2015. What better way to count down the final hours of 2015 than talking beer and enjoying a crowler of Liquid Riot’s NSFW (DIPA). It’s our year in not so great beer, 2015.
