•Denver’s Great Divide Brewing Co. has unveiled its newest limited release beer, Peach Grand Cru. It will be available on draft and in 750-ml. bottles in select quantities beginning in early October. Billed as a Belgian-style ale, Peach Grand Cru (12% abv) is brewed using fresh peaches from Palisade, Colorado’s Rancho Durazno—over 1600 pounds of peaches are used to brew one 50-barrel batch. It was first brewed last year as a single 7-barrel pilot batch and Great Divide increased production this year due to the strong demand. The brewer also produces nine year-round beers—including Yeti Imperial Stout, Hercules Double IPA and Hoss Rye Lager—as well as a number of seasonals and barrel-aged beers.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
