Hello. This post is copied straight off the bottom of a Sierra Nevada Torpedo six-pack:
In 1980, we created a beer highlighting the bold flavors and piney-citrus aromas of whole-cone Cascade hops. The quality, craftsmanship and flavors were so unique that they helped change the face of American brewing. Today, our all-natural, bottle-conditioned Pale Ale is recognized worldwide as a classic.
Sierra Nevada Porter is a completely natural beer, full of roasted malts, which give it a rich, bittersweet and roasted toffee flavor. This medium-bodied ale is perfectly balanced, with a smooth malty flavor and crisp American hops.
Sierra Nevada original Stout is brewed with generous amounts of deep roasted malts, providing a bold roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavor with a hint of sweetness. This full-bodied version of the traditional black ale is loaded with big malt flavors and earthy whole-cone hops.
TORPEDO :: EXTRA IPA
Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale is a big American IPA, bold, assertive and full of flavor and aromas highlighting the complex citrus, pine and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.
ESB :: EARLY SPRING BEER
ESB combines the best of English tradition with American style. Our ESB (Early Spring Beer) is easy drinking, featuring English malts and a blend of hops for a unique combination of flavors.
Summerfest is a pilsner-style lager designed for enjoyment on warm summer days; featuring a slight malt sweetness, delicate spicy and floral hop flavor and a crisp refreshing finish.
Anniversaries are important. They help us gauge where we’ve come from, and set the course for where we’re going. Each fall, we celebrate our anniversary by releasing a very special beer, reflecting the quality, craftmanship and flavor that have made us who we are.
Celebration Ale is a special ale for the holidays. Featuring the first hops of the growing season, this pioneering IPA is full of complex flavors and aromas from the generous use of whole-cone American hops.
SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE HARVEST ALE
Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale is the only American beer to use the freshest hops, direct from New Zealand’s spring hop harvest.
CHICO ESTATE HARVEST ALE
Sierra Nevada Chico Estate Harvest Ale is brewed using 100 percent estate grown wet hops, from our fields here at the brewery in Chico, CA.
Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale is a pioneer in wet-hop ales, using only whole-cone “wet” (or un-dried) hops shipped directly from the fields in Washington’s Yakima Valley.
BIGFOOT :: BARLEYWINE STYLE ALE
Bigfoot is a beast of a beer, brimming with flavor from massive amounts of roasted malt and spicy hops; brewed in the barleywine style, with a rich, bittersweet body and whole-cone Pacific Northwest hops.
