This is a handmade natural ale. There are no additives, only fine barley malts, whole hops,
brewer’s yeast, and crystal clear water. The fine layer of yeast in each bottle is result of the Kraeusening process which produces carbonation naturally in the bottle. This Pale Ale sparked the American craft beer revolution. Bold and complex with pine and citrus notes from whole-cone Cascade hops, this Pale Ale was first brewed , and introduced a generation to the glory of hops. Our Pale Ale is still a classic and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is still 100% family owned, operated and argued over.
