The Details

The start of Celebration season is a festive event. Once the first fresh hops arrive from harvest, the party begins! We first brewed Celebration in 1981, blazing the path for American-style IPAs and offering a new take on holiday beers, which are often spiced and sweet. Famous for its citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.

“One of the true classics.”

A moment to reflect.
As a craft beer supernerd, a common point of conversation is centered around the beer that flipped my switch from casual to centric. When put on the spot, I am terrible at answering that question. ‘Heady Topper?’ ‘Green?’ ‘Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA?’ All relevant pieces of my personal beer journey, admittedly. But the spark that truly started the fire? Here it stands. The Celebration Ale from sierranevada. The first beer I ever loved so much that I would buy it to the exclusion of all others, for the limited period of time that I could.
This is the beer that paved my path as a beer-lover. It was a beer I near-worshipped ten years ago. It still holds strong today. Happy Friday, and thanks for reading (if you did). What was YOUR first game changing beer? And have you had it recently?

Первое впечатление от аромата - пельменный бульон с перцем, лаврушкой и другими специями. Дал понюхать жене, сказала, что бульон от холодца)). Дрожжи поработали на славу, дали кучу характерных эфиров. Плюс специи. Сладко, кисло, финал сухой. Получилось хорошо и интересно, но не мое. Больше брать не буду. "Keep you heart boiling".

『セレブレーションエールIPA』🍻 .

ABV6.8% IBU65です。

シトラスに松の強い香りがします✨

グレープフルーツにタンジェリン、松のフレーバーにモルトの甘味も感じられて、その後にはホップの鮮烈な苦味がやってきて美味しかった😄

柑橘系のフルーティーな余韻が良くてドライな飲み心地のIPAでした😊🍺✨ .
