If there’s one beer style that makes the cold, wet gloom of autumn and winter worth it, it’s probably the Imperial Stout. Dark, dense and strong, these are beers sporting complexities arguably unrivaled in beerdom, and one of the best examples of the style is Great Divide’s Yeti, a monster of a cold weather stout if we’ve ever seen one.
Clocking in at a whopping 9.5% alcohol, the Yeti is coffee and toffee, caramel and molasses; it’s a beer as thick as concrete and as black as Satan’s heart. And this Thursday the 29th, you can sample a variety of rare draft Yetis right off the taps and decide which is your favorite.
The Yeti Off ’09 starts at 4 PM and will last until the last drops have been drained from the kegs. We’ll be pouring five ounce samples of Oak Aged Yeti, Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, and Espresso Oak Aged Yeti for just $6. Drop by to taste one of the most versatile Imperial Stouts available and judge for yourself which Yeti is king of the mountain.
