Sierra Nevada & Asheville Brewers Alliance Collaborate

Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp mixed pack arrives in July, featuring an epic Beer Camp Across America 12 collaboration bottle series with breweries coast to coast.

In this spotlight, Sierra Nevada teamed up with a super group of brewers known as the Asheville Brewers Alliance to create to create Tater Ridge, a Scottish Ale with sweet potatoes. Featured North Carolina brewers include Luke Dickinson of Wicked Weed, and John Stuart of Green Man Brewing.

Tater Ridge pays homage to our area’s Scottish Highland history, and its craft brew pioneers. With a hint of down home Southern flair, this Scottish ale is rich and malty, using special floor-malted six-row barley from Asheville’s Riverbend Malting, and has a smooth kick from the use of sweet potatoes, a tasty Southern staple.

Sierra Nevada’s Yonder Bock with Cigar City

Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp is stepping up their Beer Camp Series. Coming this summer, Sierra Nevada will release an epic Beer Camp Across America Mix Pack featuring collaborations with breweries across America.

Sierra Nevada Yonder Bock is a can collaboration with Cigar City Brewing.

Brewed in collaboration with Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, FL, Yonder Bock is a Latin-inspired twist on a traditional Maibock. Cigar City finds inspiration in the Cuban roots of their hometown, which is a long way from our hometown, which is a long way from our home base in Chico, but our friends down yonder in Florida sure can brew a great beer. Yonder Bock blends a silky malt body with bright, fruity hop aromas of guava, mango and passion fruit from the use of Calypso, Azacca, and experimental 366 hops as a nod to Cigar City’s tropical locale.  

Yonder Bock is one of twelve offerings coming this July in Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across America Mixed Pack.

Style: Maibock
Hops: Magnum, Azacca, Calypso, Experimental varieties
Malts: Vienna, Munich, Pilsner, Honey
Yeast: Lager

Availability: 12oz Can, Draft. Beer Camp 12-pack

Arrival: July, 2014
