Default Great Divide Brewing Co.

Anyone ever had Great Divide brew before? I bought a sixer of the Hot Shot ESB. pretty good. nice malt w/ a hop kick to finish.

I took a tour of great divide just a few months ago when I was back in Denver. Their DPA, Oak Aged Yeti and a number of other beers I cant remember the name of are absolutely fantastic.

The tour was most excellent. There's not a lot to see, but they were very generous about giving whatever beer you wanted.. even if it had to come out of a bottle. (they had 4 or 5 of their beers on tap).

I learned some pretty good stuff that day, mostly about big brewing in general. They reuse their yeast 14 times before they toss it. Pretty interesting.

Good Stuff, I just had one of their Double IPA's this morning. They claim over 9% ABV but you wouldn't know it. Hoppy but smooth. I like it.
