Great Divide Brewing Company Releases Hazy IPA

Great Divide Brewing Company is introducing Hazy IPA, a cloudy IPA with a juicy mix of citrus aroma and nuanced fruit characters. The inspiration to create this style of beer came from the brewery’s continuous effort to create innovative beer within a changing craft beer landscape.

“Tastes change which makes sense why beer drinkers are looking for new types of IPAs,” said Brian Dunn founder of Great Divide Brewing Company. “We’ve had a great run of big, piney, citrusy IPAs but I believe that beer drinkers are also looking for IPAs with less bitterness.”

And at almost six pounds per barrel of Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops, this beer is just that—a juicy, hop bomb that delivers the bitterness without the bite. After months of testing variations of Hazy IPA on the pilot system, this recipe represents the best of the best and is the clear crowd favorite. The flavor opens towards tangerine and lime zest with notes of tropical papaya and mango, before a slight hop-bitter finish that is rounded by a hint of ripe strawberries.

The brewery has kept this release draft only with a shorter shelf life of 30 days to ensure that beer drinkers experience Hazy IPA at its best.

”If you find this beer on tap, it will be fresh,” said Dunn.

The beer is available at the Great Divide Tap Room and Barrel Bar, as well as at select Colorado bars and restaurants.

Draft Only | 6.2% ABV | 40 IBU

Great Divide and WeldWerks Releasing All The Buzzwords New England-style IPA

Recently Great Divide Brewing Co. decided to whip up something special with their friends over at WeldWerks Brewing Co. That something special is a kettle-soured session New England-style IPA aptly called “All The Buzzwords.”

At 4.5% ABV, this sour hazy IPA opens with a tart aroma and gives way to a large fruity hop presence that includes bright notes of citrus, peaches, and guava.  Pouring a hazy golden hue, the tartness shares the spotlight with the hops in this approachable kettle sour.

All The Buzzwords will be available on draft only at the Great Divide Tap Room and Barrel Bar on Saturday July 1st at 12 p.m.

North Peak Brewing Company Launches Stormy Series

Last year, North Peak Brewing Company released its first East Coast IPA called Stormy. An Oat IPA full of haziness unlike any other IPA in their portfolio. Stormy came in with a force and quickly became one of the brewery’s most well received beers ever produced.

“You asked for it and we listened,” said North Peak partner Jon Carlson. “While Diabolical will always be our favorite Midwest IPA, Stormy has quickly become our favorite East Coast-style IPA. The response to this beer has been incredible and everyone wants more. So, we’re going to make more.”

Initially released as a seasonal beer, the popularity of Stormy has led the brewery to develop a year-long Stormy Series schedule to launch early June 2017. The series will feature five new variations of Stormy. All East Coast or New England-style IPAs, these beers will vary in hop additions but all have the same hazy, juicy mouth feel reflective of the style.

The Stormy Series will include five new beers: Thunder, Cloudy, Zephyr, Torrent and Murky, available in specialty six-packs and draft. The first will debut in June and the remainder of series will release throughout 2017/2018.

North Peak is part of Northern United Brewing Co. NUBC’s philosophy focuses on a dedication to conservation, inspiration and locally-sustainable practices.

Burial Beer Co. Releasing Seasoned Skillet

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout

Seasoned Skillet, a Bourbon Barrel-Aged version of Burial’s Donut Stout is set to release this Saturday, June 3rd as the culmination of their Asheville Beer Week events. Last year’s release saw nearly 300 attendees vying for 750ml bottles. In response, Burial had increased their production, but still anticipate a large showing.

“Skillet Donut Stout was on tap when we first opened our doors four years ago. It was one of only six beers we had available. To us, this beer represents a journey from that day, to our first canned beer to our biggest bottle release to-date,” states co-founder, Jess Reiser. “It reminds us of the support we have been fortunate to have since day one. So it only makes sense to barrel-age this beer and release it once a year during Beer Week as a reminder of those first days and to pay homage to the people who have supported us through the years.”

The brewery’s annual beer week events historically center around the release of Skillet Donut Stout in cans (one of only two yearly can releases) and Skillet Six Ways (Thursday, June 2nd at 4pm), a draught only release of six variants of the breakfast stout paired with mini donuts.

This year, however, a new addition from Burial’s recently launched hazy Double IPA series will release along side Seasoned Skillet. A Paranormal Vibe DIPA featuring Citra, Simcoe, Centennial, and Mandarina hops with the addition of Simcoe Lupulin Powder.

“We’ve coined this series, ‘Earth As We Now Know It’ because, for us, one of the things that drew us into the craft beer world was that beer has a story. We tell our story through the liquid; through the art and the people behind it all, explains Reiser of the series. “Earth As We Now Know It tells a story of the cycle of life – starting with death, into the after life through the re-creation of earth and humanity. Style wise, we continue to evolve as brewers and as a brand- these IPAs represent a unique take on a style that is saturated in today’s market. Look for some killer collabs within this series, new art from David Paul Seymour and innovative DIPAs. Drink fresh, but keep the cans as the story unfolds. You will want to look back.”
