Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver, Colorado) has officially announced that Wild Raspberry Ale will join the brewery’s Year-Round portfolio in March 2022.
Returning after a ten-year hiatus, Wild Raspberry Ale is a light and refreshing Fruit Beer brewed with wild raspberries. Coming in at 4.8% ABV, Wild Raspberry Ale is “a slightly sweet, slightly tart, flavorful ale that recently won a silver medal in the American Fruit Beer category at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival.”
“Our plan was always to release this beer in spring of 2022,” said Sales & Marketing Director, Kirk Simpson. “To do that, we began re-developing the recipe early in 2021 and had a draft-ready version of this beer that we were extremely pleased with ahead of schedule. Winning a GABF medal ahead of the full release confirmed we were on the right track!”
“Wild Raspberry Ale was a beer I appreciated and loved even before working for Great Divide,” said Colorado Sales Manager, Ben Rodemeyer, who has been with the brewery for 6 years. “I’d drink it regularly. Wild Raspberry Ale had a loyal following and people were sad to see it go…When I joined the GDBC team, I made it my mission to bring it back!”
Wild Raspberry Ale is out now and available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this Year-Round offering at craft beer-focused establishments located in Colorado and throughout the rest of Great Divide’s distribution network. Prost!
