It's no secret that craft brewing has become a huge deal in the United States, and this beer is one of the originals.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is one of the great beers in American craft brewing, a nicely hopped ale that set the standard for West Coast brewing. And when it comes to pale ales, no one has done it better since.

This is an absolutely delicious beer from a brewery that has become an institution in the world of craft brewing. Not only are they highly-respected for being a groundbreaking brewery that's stood the test of time (they've been around for 34 years!), they also continue to contribute to the beer community with awesome projects like this summer's Beer Camp.
