Great Divide Brewing Co. is one of my favorite Colorado breweries that doesn’t get distributed in California, but that’s about to change next week. Stone will be distributing Great Divide in San Diego and they’re hosting kick off parties at bars and restaurants throughout Southern California next week. Great Divide’s founder Brian Dunn will be on hand at some of the releases in addition to the many delicious Great Divide beers.

Wednesday September 29th they’ll kick things off at KNB Wine Cellars in Del Cerro from 5-8pm. They’ll have an awesome line of Great Divide beers, on tap will be: Titan IPA, Hercules Double IPA, Yeti Imperial Stout, Hibernation Old Ale, Smoked Baltic Porter, Hades Stong Belgian Pale Ale. All of those minus Hades will be available in bottles (either 12oz six packs or 22oz bombers) and they’ll also have bombers of Old Ruffian Barley Wine and Espresso Oak Aged Yeti.

The next night, Thursday September 30th, they’ll be up north at Churchill’s Pub and Urge Gastropub with many of the same beers on draft.

Friday, October 1st Blind Lady Ale House, The Tap Room and possibly Neighborhood will be hosting and tapping some Great Divide Beers.

Saturday, October 2nd they’ll finish things out at Pizza Port in both Ocean Beach and Carlsbad.

For you LA folks, it looks like they’ll be at Blue Palms for a lunch event Wednesday Sept 29th. Thursday they’ll be at Farmer’s Harvest and Beachwood BBQ. Friday October 1st they’ll be at Whole Foods in Tustin and Saturday they’ll stop by 38 Degrees.
