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.

Great beer. My hubby's favorite.  We usually only buy Sierra Nevada because of the quality of beer the produce.

This is an okay pale ale. It’s not my favorite or a go to. It has a slight hop and is a mid range priced beer.
