This beer was our first collaboration with the Asheville brewing community after announcing our East Coast expansion in 2012. It is a dry-hopped red wheatwine with inviting aromas of pine, tangerine, and grapefruit from a bold blend of Citra, Simcoe, Comet, Strata, and Nelson Sauvin hops. Brewed with 50% wheat and a touch of caramel malts, expect leathery, candy-like malt notes that balance the intense, sticky hop flavors. A perfect beer for sipping around the firepit in autumn, it’s our tribute to the Old North State and its amazing brewing culture. We appreciate you North Carolina!
Witbier with Sumac & Tangerine
A tantalizing take on the refreshing “white” beer style that originated in Belgium, we use red sumac berries and tangerine peel to achieve the traditional citrusy spice character found in witbiers. Hazy golden and lively, this beer arrives just in time to enjoy on the final balmy days of late summer.
Beer Camp 222 - Rye Porter
For this Employee Beer Camp, we brought together two brewers, a baker, a duck-fat fry maker, and a cast of fantastic other employees to brew a beer and share their piece of the Sierra Nevada story. This rye porter, with a hint of smoke, brings to mind a campfire in the North Carolina woods. With piney Pacific Northwest hops and local Riverbend malt, Beer Camp 222 pairs well with meat off the grill and your favorite flannel shirt.
Audition Double IPA
Our Audition series is a place for us to try new recipes and experiment with new beers. We loaded this double IPA up with a blend of Citra, Simcoe, Comet, Mosaic, Galaxy, and Huell Melon hops for intense aromas of passionfruit, apricot, and mango. Barley, wheat, and oats provide the foundation for this fruit-forward experimental IPA, balanced by a firm bitterness and resinous hop flavor.
We've partnered with Bavaria's Weihenstephan, the world's oldest brewery, for this American take on the classic German Oktoberfest. A malt backbone is balanced by subtle hop character in this crisp, clean, and drinkable crowd-pleaser-- nothing captures the spirit of celebration like a beer among friends.
Hops, hops, and more hops are the stars of this big, whole-cone Imperial IPA. This beer is layered with aggressive hoppiness, and notes of grapefruit rind, rose, cedar, and tropical fruit, culminating in a dry and lasting finish.
