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.

A well-made craft IPA. This was one of the first craft beers that I tried and now I’m hooked. It’s easy to find almost anywhere, so you can be sure to have great tasting beer no matter what your location is. Delicious!

I generally really enjoy this pale ale. It’s very refreshing while still maintaining that awesome ale complexity. Not overly hoppy and it’s definitely a great beer for a hot summer. Definitely recommend this beer.

This is a great beer for a great price! We are always trying new beers but we do somehow always end up coming back to this one. It has a great flavor that’s not too hoppy that goes well with a variety of meals!

Eh, it’s okay, not something I go crazy over but I won’t say no if someone offers, I just don’t think it’s that special. I’m not huge on IPA’s to begin with but the flavors in this are lot something I am into.

This beer is delicious and a great go to. My only gripe here is that it is so so heavy. There are a ton of calories in one beer, a lot more than other brands. I can only drink one or two of these enjoyably.

I don't drink beer really. My hubby drinks these. He likes hoppy beers. All I could say is the packaging is attractive lol. He usually buys this from Total Wine.

I grew up in Northern California and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a staple beer! The brewery is a great place to visit in Chico California too! The beer reminds me of great times with great friends! Love it.

Sierra Nevada was always a popular choice for us in the olden days because it was locally brewed. It’s always fresh and always worth the money to just get a case because everyone is gonna want one or two.
