Share Post

ARVADA, CO — The famed Yak & Yeti Brewpub, recognized as one of Colorado’s best Indian, Nepalese, and Tibetan food restaurants and known for its award-winning beers, today announced its rebrand.

Under the brewing direction of Head Brewer Jeff Tyler, Spice Trade will be a stand-alone brewery operating out of Yak & Yeti’s Restaurant in Arvada. It will supply the beer for Yak & Yeti’s two other locations, the original restaurant in Westminster and the event center in South Denver. Growlers are available at the brewpub . Spice Trade’s canned beers will be distributed in the Denver Metro area later this year.

Spice Trade produces unique beer styles inspired by culinary ingredients and traditions from around the world. “The Yak & Yeti beer has always taken a little bit of inspiration from the culinary world,” says Tyler, who  joined the Yak & Yeti team in summer 2016 as Head Brewer, “but this will be the main focus of our beer going forward as we unveil the Spice Trade brand. Our Chai Milk Stout, blended with the owners’ secret, family recipe of chai spices and Jalapeño Lena Pilsner are great examples of our culinary influences.”

Spice Trade will continue to brew Yak & Yeti staples such as the Chai Milk Stout, Jalapeño Lena Pilsner, Himalayan IPA, and Sun Temple IPA. It will add several new ingredient-focused beers to the lineup as well, including Szechuan Saison and Mayan Chocolate Russian Imperial Stout that debuted at the Spice Trade launch party yesterday.
