Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is the brewery’s most popular beer and definitely one of my favorite beers. It has a strong spicy flavor from the Cascade hops used. It has a nice thick amber color which makes it seem like a heavier type ale. This beer has no additional flavors to it besides the ingredients that make a traditional beer. The combination of the yeast, hops, and water give the beer its unique taste. It won the gold metal at the Great American Beer Festival in 1993, 1994, and 1995.
Not sure if you can find this beer anywhere on the East Coast but I read that the company is looking to expand and distribute on the East Coast. If you are on the West Coast, there is no question that you can find this beer at any grocery or liquor store. Always a great “go to” if you are unsure about what kind of beer to bring to a party. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is out of Chico, CA.
