We have the fine people of Sierra Nevada Brewing in-store tomorrow night for our Thursday Tasting. Join us from 5:00-7:00 p.m for a beer flight.

Christmas Jam: “Turn up the bass, plug in, and settle down for a long jam session with this hop-forward beer. This hop-driven session ale is the perfect beer for this one-of-a-kind musical marvel. This easygoing beer works its way up the scale of hop flavors with cool notes of citrus and pine alongside bright fruity aromas. This medley balances against a light, toasty malt backbone for a mellow balance and jam-worthy drinkability.” [4.3% abv]

Celebration Ale: “The start of Celebration season is a festive event. We can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.” [6.8% abv]

Narwhal: “Narwhal Imperial Stout is inspired by the mysterious creature that thrives in the deepest fathoms of the frigid Arctic Ocean. Featuring incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke, Narwhal is a massive malt-forward monster. Aggressive but refined with a velvety smooth body and decadent finish, Narwhal will age in the bottle for years to come.” [10.2% abv]

Barrel-aged Narwhal: “Barrel-Aged Narwhal is our deliciously dark Imperial Stout aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Barrel aging is a strange science; it mellows some characteristics of the original beer while intensifying others. Narwhal’s aggressive roastiness has calmed, but the rich, chocolate-like malt backbone is brought to the fore. Black as midnight, this intense stout is complex with notes of cocoa and espresso balanced with hints of vanilla and toasted coconut from the oak casks. Nearly as rare as it’s nautical namesake, try Barrel-Aged Narwhal while you can because like the creature itself, it will soon dive into the depths and leave nary a trace behind.” [12.9% abv]
