The beginning. A classic. Our most popular beer.

Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.

Solid IPA that’s widely available. Usually you can find this in pretty much any liquor store, gas station, Walmart at 1 AM, anywhere you are. I also love that it‘s easy to find in cans, because sometimes I’m on the road, need a beer in my hotel, but don’t have a bottle opener. It’s been a lifesaver for me because of that! But it’s definitely not my first choice for beers, as it’s just kind of nondescript, and it does have a hint have of that cheap beer tang to it. Always a good fallback option though.

I had this a couple times back in college and once when I actually went to their brewery in Chico! It’s definitely a good IPA! Being from the city though that Lagunitas is based out of, I’m a little spoiled when it comes to IPA. It wasn’t my go to but back when I drank beer it was something I would for sure purchase.

This is a very full bodied pale ale in my opinion. I only gave it a 3/5 Star only because it’s not my favorite in taste, but for those that enjoy the style, but for me the malt is a bit strong and is certainly a sipping beer.
For the price you can’t beat it and it makes an excellent addition to any party mix.

All around great flavor, great price, great beer. What more could you ask for? The alcohol percentage is higher than a lot of gas station beers but it doesn’t break the bank. It’s also super smooth for the amount of hops in it, I could drinking it all day if I had nothing to do!

i freaking LOVE Sierra Nevadas! this is where most of my money goes haha! my husband and I always go for Torpedos as they have a hoppy but citrusy flavor and a high ABV! we share a 6pck and both get buzzed! They are pricier than othet beers but well worth it!

One of my favorite pale ales! I love hoppy beers and this one is amazing. I get this at any local grocery store. It is a lil pricey than regular beers like bud light. I've repurchased several times and will continue to. If you ever have a chance to check out their distillery definitely give them a visit!

I just discovered Sierra Nevada Pale Ale last summer and can truly say it is one of my favorites. The only problem I have with it is the after taste. The ale can be a bit on the hoppy side and catches up to you after a swig. Other than that, great beer!

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a delightful example of the classic pale ale style. It has a deep amber color and a exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. The fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor are the results of the generous use of the best hops.

This pale ale beer is the perfect mix between hoppy and ipa. Each sip out of this bottle will hit your tastebuds with a crafted feel of what beer should taste like. With how affordable and tasty this ale is I would suggest it to everyone
