Sierra Nevada Celebration: A Winter Treat

I often lament the onset of cold weather in these Musings. Despite my aversion to cold and dreary, there are still things I look forward to this time of year. One of those bright spots is the release of Sierra Nevada Celebration Fresh Hop IPA. The beer has been on the shelves for a few weeks, and we finally got some in the house this week. I was happy to also find our logo Celebration glasses for this year's first taste.

The deep amber ale is tipped with a long-lasting beige foam and releases aromas of citrus and pine. Rich flavors of citrus, pine and grassy hops over a biscuity malt backbone treat the tastebuds. The lingering bitterness coats the palate to complete the flavor delights.

One of my all time favorites, Sierra Nevada Celebration is a welcome pleasure in the cold season. I look forward to brightening the days with many more pints of this tasty brew.


  1. Sir Nevada has a new iPad release this week. Resilience IPA. All proceeds will go to relief for the victims of the Cali fires. Love these guys.

    1. Indeed they are. In fact, over 1,300 craft breweries are also brewing the same beer from the recipe provided by Sierra Nevada. It's an amazing community effort to provide aid for those affected.


    2. Very nice, I may have to pick up some, and good news on the Resilience IPA. Those folks need all the help they can get.

    3. Let us know what you think of the Celebration. Obviously it's a favorite around here.
