What Yeti is to Great Divide Stouts, Bigfoot is to Sierra Nevada Barleywine.  They are both brewed with the same goal in mind: big, bold, flavorful.  And the team at Sierra Nevada has done just that.  If you like the flavor of the Pale Ale and Celebration Ale (it’s closest in hop quality to the […] ...

Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager

Sierra Nevada Summerfest

User Rating:

I’ve got to admit first and foremost: I love pilsners, and pilsner-style lagers. Perhaps, it’s in my Hungarian blood, or maybe I developed a taste for it while living in Cincinnati, Ohio (for Germans what Holland, Michigan is for the Dutch). Of course, the Germans don’t always do pilsner-style lagers as good as the Czech, […] ... [Read more]

Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale

Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale

User Rating:

Sierra Nevada is practically craft beer royalty. Founded in 1979, they were years ahead of their time and blazed a trail that craft brewers have followed ever since.

Sierra Nevada Tumbler

User Rating:

New to their fall seasonal line up is this pretty little Brown ale. After looking at their website I looks as though this is been substituted for their Anniversary ale (personally I’m quite alright with that). The fresh new label art given to their bottles over the last year has really become a point of […] ... [Read more]

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

User Rating:

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is the number one selling craft beer in the United States (total sales at almost $50.5 million, just ahead of Sam Adams Seasonal). It is the most widely distributed and culturally recognized Pale Ale, therefore acting as a quasi poster child for American craft brewing. That means that to “everyone else” […] ... [Read more]
