Yeti Imperial Stout

Published By

If you reserve your stout drinking for cold weather, we’d like to suggest, gently, that you’re doing it wrong. The meats you’ve spent hours smoking or grilling deserve a rich, smoky stout to complement them. May we suggest Yeti Imperial Stout from Great Divide Brewing Company?

There’s a Yeti Imperial Stout tailored to hit the notes of every season, offering oak aged chocolate and vanilla stouts as well as a chai yeti and barrel aged yeti in limited release throughout the year. But you need not track down the seasonal edition to enjoy a Yeti Imperial Stout year-round. The original is on shelves every day of the year and comes in 22 oz, 12 oz 4-packs, and 15.5 gal or 5 gal kegs. Since its release, it has received the Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal twice, in 2005 and 2009, as well as the Bronze in 2008.

It’s a Russian Imperial Stout, and it acts like one — the flavor is big, it’s loaded with dark malts, and it pours out black and heady. Yeti makes a notable turn, though, with the rich mocha notes quickly making way for a surprising amount of hops. Surprising, but not overpowering — they make the perfect complement to the roasted malts. Yeti pairs up with a steak grilled under the summer sun just as well as root vegetables roasted inside in the winter.
