For most of our beers, including Pale Ale and the rest of our year-round and seasonal lineup, 150 days is our maximum recommended shelf life, assuming they’ve had optimal storage conditions (cool, dark, and dry). Certain specialty beers (e.g., Northern Hemisphere Harvest) have a shorter 100-day window. Some styles of beer, though, improve with a bit of age—not unlike a fine wine. Prime candidates include beers that are high in alcohol (e.g. Bigfoot Barleywine) and those with a moderate amount of roasted grains (e.g. Narwhal Imperial Stout). Their flavors will evolve in intriguing ways over time.

Specific to Beer

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. uses the highest quality and most natural brewing ingredients while utilizing the very best brewing practices. This allows us to create ales and lagers with superior flavor, aroma, balance, and character. As a traditional brewer, Sierra Nevada currently uses water, malt, hops, and yeast for every brew. We will also use malted wheat and rye, oats, various fruit and more for some of our beers. If used, these ingredients are listed for each beer page online here.

Specific to Beer

Yes. We require that all of our ingredients used for our regular production beers are Non-GMO.

Specific to Beer

We brew with a variety of grains including barley, wheat and rye, all of which contain small amounts of naturally occurring gluten. The brewing process does notably reduce gluten levels, but the final beers don’t reach gluten-free status.

Specific to Beer

The sediment evident in the bottom of a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and other naturally conditioned beers is the yeast we use for bottle conditioning. Typically, the yeast lies tight and flat to the bottom of the bottle. As the beer is poured, the yeast will re-suspend making the beer’s appearance cloudy or slightly particulate, but this will not adversely affect beer flavor. If bottles are stored improperly (e.g. upside down or on their side) the yeast may resettle into what looks like a drop of pancake batter or vanilla ice cream and will be more apparent, but it will still not affect the finished flavor of the beer.

Specific to Beer

Bottle conditioning is a time-honored method for naturally carbonating beer. We dose back a small amount of fermentable sugar and yeast into the beer right before we package it. This fermentation creates the finished carbonation and flavors unique to our beer.

Specific to Beer

We bottle condition our original five beers: Pale Ale, Porter, Stout, Celebration Ale, and Bigfoot. We also can condition our Pale Ale.
