Sierra Nevada’s 2011 edition of their Estate Ale is ready to go.
Quick backstory on Estate:
Sierra Nevada built a whole “Estate” around this beer. In 2003 the brewery planted a hop yard and have been expanding it ever since. By 2008, Sierra was ready to release a beer with the homegrown ingredients – Chico Estate Harvest Ale. Today the beer is made from 100% homegrown hops and malts.

Style: American IPA (wet hopped)
