Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Brewer: Sierra Nevada Brewing

Style: American Pale Ale

"The iconic pale ale is, and will always be, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale," Hopleaf owner Michael Roper says of the piney, grapefruity California beer, which was first brewed in November, 1980. "It is oft overlooked because it has been a standard for 30 years, but I challenge any comer in a blind taste test to best it."
