Great Divide

Great Divide Old Ruffian

In one of my recent reviews I mentioned how Colorado does not get enough love in the “best beer state in America” discussions.

Well, for the second time this month I have another fine example of what Colorado has to offer the beer world. Old Ruffian is an American style barleywine from Great Divide in Denver Colo. Old Ruffian was first bottled and released back in 2004 where it quickly gained notoriety by winning a bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2005. It followed that up with gold in 2006 and a second bronze medal in 2009.
