Details

Sierra Nevada are fairly old by US craft brewery standards. Located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, they brew wild, hoppy expansive brews to an exceptionally high standard. Most people will have tried the Pale Ale, but the range goes much, much deeper than that and is well worth exploring. They also have an astonishing commitment to community and their environment - they claim the largest private solar panel farms and fuel over half their power needs from from the sun

The Sierra Nevada Pale ale is a classic and one that could be considered the benchmark of the American pale ale style. Hailing from another one of California’s great breweries, this beer has been a beer-drinkers favourite for decades.

A great blend of American hops gives the Sierra Nevada pale ale its iconic pine and grapefruit notes whilst sweet, grainy malts complement them nicely. A firm--but not bold--bitterness gives a fantastic lingering balance. If you don’t at least try this one once, you can’t call yourself a beer-lover. We don’t make the rules.

Brewery Info

One of the original craft beer pioneers, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, founded by Ken Grossman, have been going since 1980. Brewing equipment wasn’t easily available in the early days and Grossman had to retrofit used dairy equipment to form his first brewhouse; a lot has changed since then! Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. arguably kicked off the entire craft beer movement with the release of their, still to this day, seminal Pale Ale. Since then they have been pumping out some of the best beers American has to offer and they still do! If you’re after hop forward beers with class and distinction Sierra Nevada is the way to go!

As well as taste a beer has to have a refreshing edge. This beer has all the impact of a good lager with the extra flavour thrown in.
