At 9.5% ABV, this was a gnarly thing to try to drink on such a summery summer weekend, but I just had to try this rare variation on the classic Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Its full name has something to do with the 25th anniversary of Celebrator Beer News, so I suspect it won’t be widely available, or available for long, but it was on tap at Zeitgeist as of a couple days ago.
Basically, it tastes like they crammed two or three classic Sierras into one small goblet: lots of hops, lots of sweetness, lots of texture. And lots of alcohol. Highly recommended if you’re a fan of the original, though it’d be more fun to drink in the winter months. (Good thing June is coming soon.)
