Sierra Nevada Collaborates with Russian River

Sierra Nevada Yvan the Great

Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp mixed pack arrives in July, featuring twelve different collaborations with breweries coast to coast.

One of the bottles is a collaboration with another very well known California brewery, Russian River. Yvan, refers to Belgian brewing great Yvan De Baets, of Brasserie De la Senne.

This genre-bending beer has the bright, resinous hop profile of an American IPA blended with the dry and complex yeast character of a Belgian farmhouse ale. Yvan the Great is a perfect combination of the two brewing styles—hoppy, dry, spicy, and impressive.

Sierra  Nevada Yvan the Great joins eleven other offerings coming this July in the Beer Camp Across America Mixed Pack.

Style: Blonde Ale
Hops: Brewer’s Gold, Strisselspalt, Celeia
Malts: Two Row Pale, Golden Promise, Acidulated

Now Shipping: Sierra Nevada Rain Check

Sierra Nevada Spiced Stout

Sierra Nevada has all but wrapped up the build of their east coast location in Mills River, North Carolina. Like any project, especially construction, there were delays. One of the biggest issues – rain. A lots of it. When you are a brewery, adversity pretty much means there is a beer to commemorate your hardships, and that’s where Rain Check Spiced Stout was born. Rain Check is first and foremost an imperial stout, brewed with ginger, brown sugar, molasses, and lime.

Rain Check Spiced Stout is our answer to the merciless wet weather that plagued and slowed the construction of our new brewery in Mills River, NC. This dark, rich, and roast beer helps us forget the delays- a Rain Check we’ll take anytime. 

Sierra Nevada Rain Check Spiced Stout will be packaged in 12oz bottles.

Style: Imperial Stout (Ginger, Brown Sugar, Molasses, Lime)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
