Something new has been brewing at Great Diving Brewing Company‘s Ballpark location. A couple weeks back, the Denver-based brewery released a special taproom-only hibiscus saison. While the beer has quickly become a top seller, it won’t be around for long. The good news: It’s a taste of what’s to come.
In June, Great Divide plans to release a version of this hibiscus saison as part of its Tank Farm series. The brew will be called Nadia Kali (Background: Nadia is a popular Haitian name and Haiti’s national flower is the hibiscus; Kali is a Hindu goddess and ginger is a prevalent ingredient in Hindu culture). The saison is a summery combination of ground hibiscus petals, ginger root, and lemon peel.
Give One Year of 5280 for just $16.
Consider the pilot version on tap now just a preview of Nadia Kali. The suds are slightly sweet, vaguely reminiscent of cranberry or pomegranate, and infused with just a hint of lemon and ginger. The vibrant pink grapefruit color is Instagram-worthy. A quick glance down the bar on a recent visit was proof that the sunset-hued beverage is already a popular choice. Stop by the tap room and give it a try before it’s gone—or wait patiently for Nadia Kali’s official June release.
