Alpha Hop Society is your backstage pass to all things experimental at Sierra Nevada.
Whether hopped to the max or aged to perfection in barrels, each beer is a showcase of flavor made solely for AHS. Membership is annual, new enrollments happen once a year, and spots are very limited. Submit the form below to get on the waitlist.
A blonde ale with malted oats and wheat malt provides the bready, biscuity foundation for a jammy 10-month transformation inside tawny port barrels. Raspberry puree blends with a late addition of natural peanut butter extract for a smooth sipper. Raspberry pops on the nose, and peanut butter shows up as it warms.
Hey, it’s an accurate name; this beer is a spoonful of coconut cream pie. We absolutely packed Four Roses barrels with toasted coconut, sprinkled in some New Zealand vanilla bean powder, and piped in a stout brewed with lactose and its own dose of toasted coconut. The flavor is full, and the finish is clean.
We sent 150 pounds of Estate peaches swimming in 500-liter puncheons. The oak was filled with Saison we fermented with a yeast called Saisonstein’s Monster, a hybrid of French and Belgian strains. Peach is prominent on the nose with flashes of peppery spice, while the flavor is juicy and full, like a rowdy mimosa.
