Community Beer Works, Great Divide Brewing Team Up on BuffaYeti

On November 16 (3pm), BuffaYeti, a new collaboration between Community Beer Works and Denver, Colorado’s Great Divide Brewing, will be unleashed. The special beer first came about when Great Divide brewer Brandon Jacobs visited CBW over the summer to brew a special, Divide-approved Yeti variant: BuffaYeti, which includes more than 50% local malts. BuffaYeti is an 8.6% imperial stout with a roasty profile that doesn’t overwhelm the palate with bitterness but is accompanied by notes of chocolate, coffee & rye bread. It will be available in 4oz samples for $3.00, 10oz pours for $7 and 32oz growlers (only) for $15. More info here!
