Day 168 Drink: Sierra Nevada 2010 Summerfest
Sierra Nevada Brewing has a series of seasonal releases that include beers for the summer, spring, the fall, winter and holidays. The brewery is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with the release of four specialty brews.
Sierra Nevada 2010 Summerfest is a lager that is 5 percent alcohol by volume. The beer has a slightly sweet aroma and the flavor is fairly light in comparison to other Sierra Nevada brews. Perle and Saaz hops give the beer's flavor a mild floral touch and a bit of fruit essence in the finish.
