Hop Hunter Makes Harvest Year Round

This month, we’re preparing to launch an all-new IPA into our year-round beer lineup: Hop Hunter IPA.

To our knowledge, Hop Hunter is the first beer to feature wet hop flavor year round. This intensely aromatic IPA features pure hop oil, steam distilled in the field from wet hops minutes after harvest. This hop oil contributes a powerful wet hop aroma into the beer, available for the first time outside of the harvest season.

Our Packaging Design Refresh

Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll notice your favorite beers look a little bit different. We’re in the midst of a slight design update for all of our packaging—the beers themselves will not change. This design tweak—a tune-up, if you will—will enliven our classic styles and help us introduce two all-new additions to our year-round lineup: Hop Hunter IPA and Nooner Pilsner.

Wild Hops of the West

It’s amazing what you might find hiding in your backyard, if only you take the time to look. The newest and most exciting hop working its way into our next beer didn’t come from Europe and it wasn’t from the new breeding cooperative; it was here all along, just waiting to be tried.

A Nano Brewery for Big Beer Ideas

The more things change, the more things stay the same. At least that’s what we’ve found at the brewery.

Over the past few decades, Sierra Nevada has added family members, new facilities and hundreds of beers. Although we’ve grown as a brewing company, our biggest ideas always start small.

It’s with this in mind that we introduce a new member to the Sierra Nevada family: the Nano Brewery.

Despite An Aleing Estate

Wind, when moving swiftly, can hit you like a punch to the face. Well, we’d love to return an uppercut to wind’s jaw right about now. It’s one of the main factors that knocked out our estate barley this season.
