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 Sierra Nevada's regular hop bomb and the first to use their dry-hopping "Hop Torpedo"--essentially a wind funnel for the fermenting beer--which imbues a huge hoppy aroma without the associated bitterness leaving a lush citrus and pine resin flavour to come through.

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!
