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.

This beer is my families go to beer for any holiday. A true crowd pleaser, it’s got hints of hops, a nice refreshing taste and no harsh aftertaste.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is one I recommend for people who are starting out in the scene. It's very hoppy and has a strong flavor. Not a huge ipa fan

Good go-to beer. I usually order this at my favorite Chinese restaurant. Made in Chico, CA! Refreshing and thirst-quenching. Wish I had one now.

It's a great beer that Sierra Nevada brews. It can be pretty pricy out at bars but when you purchase it at the stores they aren't too expensive.

This was my "gateway" beer years ago. It showed me that I love hops! It is a perfectly balanced pale ale. A bar most should be measured against.

Probably my favorite "comfort beer". I really love IPAs and enjoy how bright and crisp Sierra Nevada is. I find this goes well with Mexican food.
