Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Celebrates Anniversary with Release of 40 Years IPA

40th-Anniversary-Ale_tapinsert-600x600Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (Chico, California) has officially announced that it will recognize four decades of craft brewing with the Seasonal Release of 40 Years Anniversary IPA at the start of the 2020 calendar year.

Here to celebrate the fact that Sierra Nevada has been brewing world-class, hop-forward beers since 1980 (a risky move considering those beers were not at all popular at that time), 40 Years Anniversary IPA “showcases the bold flavors and aromas of a classic West Coast IPA: intense pine and citrus with a deep gold color and slight caramel sweetness.”  Clocking in at 6% ABV and 65 IBUs, 40 Years Anniversary IPA serves as proof that “[Sierra Nevada is] still brewing what [they] love.”

40 Years Anniversary IPA is available now at Sierra Nevada’s Chico, Mills River and Berkeley Tap Rooms and will enter full distribution in January 2020.  You can expect to find this Seasonal Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 24-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, North Carolina and throughout the rest of Sierra Nevada’s nationwide distribution area.  Prost!
