Braupakt is deliciously drinkable, showcasing both Weihenstephan’s
brewing prowess through their signature yeast and Sierra Nevada’s
proclivity for big hop flavor.
Beer Camp; Second Gear Porter
One of the greatest perks of working at Sierra Nevada is that every year a small group of employees gets to participate in Beer Camp, including an exhaustive tour around the brewery on the Beer Bike, which is unable to get past second gear.
Campers decided to harken back to the brewery’s history and make a traditional porter with a modern twist, adding Tahitian vanilla beans and Experimental Hops 438/472 to the mix, giving the beer a coconut flavor with an oak finish.
Heading into the backcountry, it’s helpful to have a few things on hand. This session ale is the perfect choice for a day away from it all—golden, easy drinking, and full of citrusy and piney hop flavor.
Hazy Little Thing
We’re constantly brewing new IPAs, looking for bold hop flavor. With this beer, our brewers thought it was so good that we decided to serve it straight from the tanks—unfiltered, unprocessed, and raw—to let all the fruit-forward hop flavors shine. The result is a hazy beer with modest bitterness and intense hop character.
Hop Bullet Double IPA
Hop Bullet Double IPA features a new technique: we’re hitting the beer with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust—the source of hop flavor and aroma—right into the fermenter for a ballistic burst of aggressive hop character.
Sidecar Orange IPA
Orange peel and fruit-forward hops are a perfect match, so we took what we started, and turned up the volume. This orange-infused IPA is the big brother of our Sidecar Orange Pale, with even more orange and hop flavor. It is crisp, lightly bitter, and heavy with the fruity citrus aromas of sweet orange and hops.
