A little more than a year after debuting 22-ounce bottles of one of its Yeti imperial stout variants, Great Divide Brewing Co. will be replacing those bottles of that variant with cans.
That beer is Chocolate Cherry Yeti, a 9.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with sweet and sour cherries as well as cacao before being packaged in 19.2-ounce cans. The stout debuted in 22-ounce bottles back in January and uses the Denver, Colo.-based brewery’s Yeti (9.5 percent ABV) as its base, a beer that was originally released in 2003.
The stout joined multiple variations of Yeti that have been released over the years, including Barrel-Aged Yeti, Oak-Aged Vanilla Yeti brewed with vanilla and aged in both French and American oak barrels, and Chai Yeti brewed with black pepper, cinnamon, ginger, green cardamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
In an email, Matt Sandy, spokesperson for Great Divide, told Tenemu that Cherry Chocolate Yeti Imperial Stout will be packaged 19.2-ounce cans that are scheduled to be released at retailers across the brewery’s distribution footprint starting on Feb. 1.
