SierraSierra Nevada, Celebration Ale
Chico, California

The Sierra Nevada Pale Ale has been a grocery store staple for years and made the Sierra Nevada Brewing Companies one of the most successful craft breweries in the country. So, when it came to brewing their seasonal Celebration Ale, the California brewers went the safe route and pretty much took their Pale Ale and made it bit Pale Aleier. The hop bites harder, and there’s some added spice thrown in for the sake of Christmas cheer. It’s an odd brew for a holiday beer; pale ales seem more at home at a late season wiffle ball game rather than the wintry landscape on the bottle.
