This snow-ape is also known as a Yeti, and he is the mascot of the Great Divide Brewing Company and several of their craft brews. Among these special seasonal brews are the Espresso Oak Aged Yeti, the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti and the Oatmeal Yeti.
Great Divide Brewing Company was founded in 1994 in Denver, Colorado by Brian Dunn.
After five years of traveling through developing countries, Dunn said he decided to return to his home in Colorado and begin home brewing.
Since the company was founded, Dunn and his staff have experimented and successfully brewed many different craft beers, all inspired by the spirit of the city of Denver.
Many bars, not only in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area, but also the state, carry Great Divide Brewing Company beer.
The Yeti took part in the bar crawl on Friday, which began with a Yeti Mario Kart Challenge at Beer Study, a local Carrboro bar.
The Yeti and his entourage then made their way to Milltown in Carrboro, where the Yeti indulged in several beers and appetizers named in his honor as Yeti Bites.
Tyler’s Taproom was the last leg of the bar crawl, with the Yeti showing his moves during a dance-off.
