Day 176 Drink: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Sierra Nevada Brewing would have been successful, but it likely would never have been a craft beer household name without Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The beer is an old friend that is great this time of year.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale pours a bright golden color and has a nice pine hop aroma. The beer is 37 IBUs, which is very flavorful, but in this age of big hop bombs it is important to realize that this brew taught many people about what hops could mean for a beer. The ale is clean with a floral and spice finish.
