Let’s Celebrate With Some Holiday Beer!

Let’s Celebrate With Some Holiday Beer!

November 27, 2017| Categories: Beer Tasting, Events, News, Published Articles

This time of year there’s lots to celebrate! So before we get into the holiday beers & ciders, let’s grab some celebrator libations and raise a glass to good times.

And what better way to start the season of Celebration than with Sierra Nevada Celebration IPA?

Festive fresh hop holiday fun.

The start of Celebration season is a festive event. We can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada


SMISTLETOE 2017 is in stock and ready to roll!

ROCKY ROAD – Remember when you were first introduced to Rocky Road ice cream? Remember how you couldn’t believe some magical genius had mixed those amazing flavors into one ice cream? We sure do. That’s the feeling we’ve recreated with Rocky Road, Smutty’s first dessert stout. An indulgent blend of ooey-gooey Fluff™ amazingness and the rich goodness of cacao nibs are blended into a full bodied sweet, stout beer. Before bottling, we age this elixir on amaretto-soaked oak chips to impart an amazing flavor harmony. Don’t worry if you spill a drop of Rocky Road – we know you’ll lick it right up. Cheers


WINTER WARMER MEAD – Winter Warmer Mead is based on an 18th century Wassail recipe. Brewed with cinnamon, cloves, orange, and notes of brandy, this mead will keep you warm all winter long!
