The newest release from Sierra Nevada is their Beer Camp and it’s upon us. Lucky attendees make a pilgrimage to Chico, California all year long to try their hand at brewing. The best of the best make it into a sampler pack. This August, look these beers in the 2013 edition (See L-R):
#93 IPA—This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.
#94 Belgian-style Black IPA—This beguiling black IPA takes a tropical detour with a dose of new world hops, featuring lemony Sorachi Ace and fruity Nelson Sauvin varieties. A Belgian yeast works with the exotic hop profile, emphasizing its complex and fruity flavors.
#95 Imperial Red Ale—Our aggressive Imperial Red Ale is a massive mix of smooth malts and West Coast hops that have no patience for the lupulin leery. This crimson beer starts with caramel-like malt flavor that can’t suppress the assertive, citrusy hop finale.
Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Beers are available in 12oz/12 pack cases, and very limited draft offerings.
