Would Sierra Nevada be Mecca or Medina for the craft beer movement? Thoughts? Maybe it is Jerusalem. The f'in point is, if you haven't been, the excitement is palpable. Very few places can get that just on who they are, not necessarily what beers they might have on tap at some moment. History and struggle in that place, and what looks now like a dynasty. I raise my glass!
It helps to be doing collegiate science work, and it helps to have been in contact with Steve a long time beforehand, but we were absolutely treated like royalty there. The poor foolish college kids from Oly got showed a valuable lesson in hospitality at the good ole Sierra Nevada homestead.
Estate hops, grain, beef, whatever else they do. Can't beat that cool shit. Bunch of taps, some really good stuff on. Wish there'd been a better beer camp beer on draft when we were there. It was ok, but seeing the list now, it's all curses!
Great tour of the brewery, it is a beautiful place for the working man. Food was pretty good. Just go there.
