Weekly Spotlight — 06 March 2017


Great Divide has been expanding over the past 20+ years. Brian Dunn, the Founder and creator of Great Divide had a dream and saw an opportunity to start something when no one knew very much about the craft beer scene. He took a leap of faith,  followed his passion, and started Great Divide in Denver, Colorado in 1994.

Check out what we are bringing to New Jersey this week!

YETI IMPERIAL STOUT 6 pack cans & draft
YETI IMPERIAL STOUT is an onslaught of the senses. It starts with big, roasty malt flavor that gives way to rich caramel and toffee notes. YETI gets its bold hop character from an enormous quantity of American hops. It weighs in at a hefty 75 IBUs. ABV: 9.5%

CLAYMORE 6 pack bottles & draft
Named for a medieval Scottish sword, CLAYMORE SCOTCH ALE is our tribute to the legendary “Wee Heavy” beers of Scotland. This malty, deep-ruby beauty features lots of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile, and a subtle warming character. Unlike its namesake, this beer only requires one hand, but it’ll still make you feel like nobility. ABV: 7.7%

ORABELLE 6 pack cans  & draft
ORABELLE is brewed with barley, wheat, oats, and rye. This Belgian-Style Tripel is a golden beauty. Its two yeast strains, orange peel and dash of coriander impart surprising complexity and richness to this delicate ale. Don’t let Orabelle’s demure nature fool you; this is one flavorful pour. Watch out, she’s a charmer – one sip and you’ll be in love. ABV: 8.3%

TITAN IPA 6 pack cans
TITAN IPA is a big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples. It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness. ABV: 7.1%

COLETTE 6 pack cans 
COLETTE is our homage to the saisons that Belgian farm workers have enjoyed for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, COLETTE is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats — a beer as refreshing as it is complex. ABV: 7.3%

HERCULES  6 pack cans
HERCULES DOUBLE IPA is not for the faint of heart. It is, however, fit for the gods. HERCULES delivers a huge amount of hops from start to finish. Its hefty backbone of nutty, malty sweetness balances its aggressive hop profile. ABV: 10%

HOP DISCIPLES 6 pack cans
Hop Disciples – Rotating Hop Project takes a bright, clean IPA and puts a different hop variety at the forefront of the sensory experience every year. The inaugural release features Idaho 7, which shows up punching with aromas of orange zest and stone fruit complemented by a hint of black tea leaves in an uncharacteristic element of subtlety. Hop Disciples may look tough on the outside, but with its golden blonde hue and approachable 6.2% ABV, we promise it’s a lover not a fighter. ABV: 6.2%

STRAWBERRY RHUBARB 6 pack cans  & draft
A tart, refreshing, lip-puckering treat with a fruit-forward punch of one of the best flavor combinations of all time,
strawberry & rhubarb. ABV: 6.2%

Colette, Denver Pale Ale, Orabelle, & Titan IPA.
