Great Divide Brewing Co. Adds S’mores Yeti & Mexican Chocolate Yeti to Yeti Clan

Mexican-Chocolate-Yeti_BeerImage_3-e1568224864970Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Releases of S’mores Yeti and Mexican Chocolate Yeti in October 2019.

Arriving as the latest variants of Great Divide’s iconic Yeti Imperial Stout, S’more Yeti and Mexican Chocolate Yeti are here to offer Stout lovers a “sumptuous sensory experience” this fall.  To get you further acquainted with these elusive beasts, here are their official descriptions (sourced directly from the brewery’s website):

  • S’mores Yeti | 9.5% ABV – Reach for S’mores Yeti and find yourself transported to a cozy campfire setting without ever leaving the comfort of your home; though enjoying this decadent treat fireside is definitely encouraged. Enjoy all the tastes of the classic campsite dessert blended with the rich, roasty malt flavor of Yeti Imperial Stout. A beer for telling tales and creating new ones. 
  • Mexican Chocolate Yeti | 9.5% ABV – A very special, and very limited, entry in our venerable Yeti Series, Mexican Chocolate Yeti is a sensory delight. We’ve added a variety of spices, vanilla and coffee to Yeti Imperial Stout to create our version of a traditional champurrado drink. Spiced chocolate drinks have been part of Aztec and Mayan cuisine and culture for centuries, but they have yet to be paired with a Yeti! 

“S’mores was a bit of a no-brainer and a Yeti flavor that would crop up often in our brainstorming sessions. Mexican Chocolate Yeti has been a draft-only taproom favorite since we released it in small batches two years ago. We decided it warranted a wider though still limited release.”

 

– Matt Sandy, Marketing Manager at Great Divide Brewing Company 

S’more Yeti and Mexican Chocolate Yeti will both launch in October with availability in 19.2 oz. cans and on draft.  S’mores Yeti is scheduled to hang around through December 2019 while Mexican Chocolate Yeti will only be available as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find both of these Limited Releases at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado and throughout the rest of Great Divide’s distribution area.  Prost!
