Great Divide Brings Together Grapefruit, Ale in Roadie Radler

Great Divide has caught on to the easy-sipping radler wave with its new Roadie Grapefruit Radler. For details, see the release below:


 Great Divide Brewing Company is expanding its seasonal portfolio with the addition of Roadie Grapefruit Radler. Brewed with natural grapefruit puree, this easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma. This beer was named both for the road biking cyclist, roadie, and the German word for cycling, radler.
 
As an avid cyclist, Great Divide founder Brian Dunn has a personal history on the bike. His experience expands from riding through the French mountainside as a child, to racing after college and eventually passing the love of the sport onto his twin sons. He has also instilled this passion for cycling in the brewery.
 
Great Divide has been a part of the cycling community throughout the years with the creation of the Great Divide Racing Team, annual employee participation in the Bike MS race and the annual BoulDurango, as well as donating profits from their Tap Room Giving Program to organizations like Bike Denver and the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado.
 
Inspired by the brewery’s roots in the cycling community and the camaraderie surrounding the sport, Roadie Grapefruit Radler is an ode to cyclists everywhere.
 
“Grapefruit is one of the most refreshing fruits around, and with its relatively low ABV of 4.2 percent, this radler is a natural fit for a refreshing post-ride beer,” said Dunn.
 
Roadie is now available in 6-packs, 15.5 gallon and 5 gallon kegs starting April 1st.

 

ABV: 4.2% | Available: April - July
