Just in time for Independence Day, Great Divide Brewing Cois thrilled to announce its newest year-round packaged beer: Great Divide Lager. Available in 12oz 6-packs and 19.2oz cans, the beer is the perfect way to celebrate summer.

“Great Divide has long been known for its big, bold beers,” explained Bill Bertsch, Sr. Director of Brewery Operations, “but Lager shows the range of our brewing team. They have created a crisp, clean, refreshing beer that has quickly become a favorite around the brewery.”

From the mountain top to the tailgate, Great Divide Lager is an uncomplicated beer fit for any occasion. Featuring a blend of noble and new world hops along with German malts and a traditional Lager yeast, Great Divide Lager is a crisp, refreshing and easy drinking beer that is meant to be enjoyed repeatedly.

“We’re excited to roll Great Divide Lager out across our entire distribution footprint,” continued Bertsch. “This beer will provide a lighter complement to our already stellar lineup of core, seasonal and Tank Farm beers.” Find a Craft Brewery
