DENVER ... Great Divide Brewing Company is adding a new sour beer to its year-round lineup, Strawberry Rhubarb Sour Ale. Previously released as a specialty beer, Strawberry Rhubarb has found a permanent home in the brewery’s core portfolio on tap and in 22 oz. bombers.
“Beer drinkers may be familiar with this beer as it was brewed in 2013 under the name Demeter,” said Brian Dunn, founder of Great Divide Brewing Company. “People have been lining up for it at our Anniversary parties and GABF in past years, so we’ve known that it’s a winner. It took some time to figure out how to brew bigger batches of it given the incredible amount of fruit and extra labor required but we’re excited to finally be able to release this beer into our year-round lineup.”
Bright and effervescent, this sour is a fun and refreshing lip-puckering brew that’s perfect for every occasion. A gift to the taste buds, the sweetness of the strawberry balances out the tartness of the rhubarb. This beautiful partnership of sweet and tart creates a beer that glows ruby in the glass, bursting with strawberry aroma, and bites with each sip.
Strawberry Rhubarb Sour Ale comes in at 6.2 percent ABV, and will be available year round in 22 oz bottles and draft.
