Sierra Nevada Ovila Series will be expanding soon with the addition of Ovila Abbey Golden. Sierra Nevada’s Ovila Series benefits the nearby Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, California.
Each release is a modern take on Belgian-style abbey ales. Recent additions to the lineup feature ingredients like plums and mandarin oranges that are grown at the Abbey. Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden will feature pomegranates grown on New Clairvaux’s nearly 600 acres of farmland.
Pomegranates have been treasured since ancient times and used as symbols of fruitfulness and prosperity. In the modern era, they are prized for their unique sweet-tart flavor and intense red color, which acts as a perfect counterpoint for the spicy Belgian-style golden ale. This collaboration beer features pomegranates grown at the Abbey of New Clairvaux.
Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden will be available in 12.7oz bottles in late summer, 2015. A portion or the proceeds benefits the Abbey of New Clairvaux.
