    I don’t think Sierra Nevada is all that, but it was definitely ahead of the curve when it came to the great craft beer revival and has a sort of iconic status because of that.

    This year, I think they’ve over-reached. They introduced six or seven new beers this year, and when their traditional “Celebration Ale” came out it was not what we’re used to. It’s a Christmas-season beer but it’s not spiced or otherwise flavoured, it’s a nice crisp, reddish IPA that I much prefer to their year-round Pale Ale (which is also an IPA, really). I think they used all their hops elsewhere this time around. Very disappointing.
