You’ve probably heard about the Yeti. It’s been called one of the greatest mysteries of our time. Many have tried for years to prove whether it’s real or not. Well, I’m here to tell you today: the Yeti is real, folks. I have seen it, smelled it, tasted it. Just two days ago, in fact, I touched the Yeti. And to prove it to you all today, I even snapped a photo of the Yeti. Now, some of you might doubt this photo is real, but I can assure you this is no fake. And it’s no ordinary Yeti, either. This is the Limited Reserve Maker’s Mark Yeti. Only two kegs of it were ever produced in the entire world. And I was one of the lucky ones who got to experience it.
Great Divide Brewing Co., with the help of West End Tavern in Boulder, concocted this rare and limited beer especially for American Craft Beer Week. I’ve had the Yeti, Oak Aged Yeti, Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, and Espresso Oak Aged Yeti–all of which are amazing. But the Maker’s Mark barrel aged yeti tops them all. Not only am I a big Yeti fan, I’m also a lover of barrel aged beers. So this beer combined two of my favorite things ever. And it blew me away. Unfortunately it’s so rare I was only allowed a 3 ounce sample, but it’s a sample I’ll never forget. Strong bourbon flavor penetrated every taste bud–just the way I like it. I’m not sure what else to say about this brew. It pretty much left me speechless. So I’ll end here by proving that I, Colorado Beer Girl, had a real, true, undeniable Yeti encounter. And I’ll never be the same.
