Two new releases from Great Divide

Hopefully these both make it into midwestern markets some time soon (both are August releases).

Smoked Baltic Porter - Baltic porters differ from their American and English cousins in that they're made with lager yeast. This beer uses German lager yeast, malts, and hops, to make a 6.2% ABV porter. The smokiness comes from Bamberg smoked malts and the brewery calls this beer medium-bodied. Fantastic with bbq and grilled meats.

Rumble Oak-Aged IPA - straight from the mouth of Great Divide: "Rumble IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavyhanded additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus." Sounds tasty.
