Just hope it's not overloaded with wheats and sours.
Oh yeah, Didn't read the whole thread. But if I remember correct, Shaun Hill wrote something similar concerning his collaboration with Fantome.
Brux was excellent.
Anyone have any more info on this? Sounds incredibly awesome.
Summer 2014 - some great breweries in the mix there!
Damn I'm so excited for this.
My ideal 12-pack: (Goal to be awesome and also approachable/varied):
Allagash Brewing Company - Witbier
Ballast Point Brewing Company - IPA
Bell’s Brewery, Inc. - Stout (maybe milk or oatmeal)
Cigar City Brewing - Imperial stout
Firestone Walker Brewing Co. - English Mild/Pale
New Glarus Brewing Company - Fruit beer
Ninkasi Brewing Company (only brewery I haven't tried from the list) - Hoppy amber
Oskar Blues Brewing Company - Scotch Ale
Russian River Brewing Company - Imperial IPA
Three Floyds Brewing - Pale Ale
Victory Brewing Company - Pilsner
Local Asheville (Wicked Weed?) - Something unique/crazy...lacking more German options
Love it when brewery's do collaboration brews, especially when it is breweries of the caliber on this list. Cannot wait to try some of these beers.
Whaat Oskar Blues?!?! That's probably what I'm most excited for out of that list.
Really interested in the collabs with Three Floyds, Russian River, and New Glarus. Although i would definitely try any of the 12 brewery collabs i could get my hands on.
I spoke to a sales rep for and it sounds like this is going to be a SN distro. He said it would be pricey but didn't talk exact numbers. $30 a 12 pack was his guess
Mersey Cream Stout?
They picked a ripe bunch
I'm glad I don't taste politics in my beer.
It's all a out taste for this fireface bitch.
That would equal their highest price (around FL at least) of their current high altitude series beers (Narwahl, Bigfoot, Hoptimum), which fetch $9.99/4-pack or $2.50 per beer.
I'd guess it to be more in the $24.99 range. Time will tell.
Nothing about my post had to do with politics.
What are they doing with Victory? Two of my favorite breweries right there!
Word on the street is they're going to make a beer.
Bells and Sierra Nevada... yes please
i wonder if craft beer fans realize how lucky they are that one of the major industry players in their chosen hobby is sierra nevada. they go so above and beyond doing it right and make such good (for us) decisions so consistently. honestly, i think about it often .
pretty sure these collabs are and will be yet more examples.
Could not be more excited about this. Sierra Nevada is a great brewery in their own right, and to have them collaborating with what is pretty much a who's who of top brewers in the country is pretty damn sweet.
Just caught this on Twitter and thought I would share it here.
But yeah, that does sound pretty great. Terrific lineup.
Excited isn't the word.
A bit of news on the beers that will be created during these collaboration brews is coming out:
Victory's collab will be an Altbier (German style brown ale)
Russian River's collab will be an Belgian Blond Ale
Allagash's collab will be an Belgian Pale Ale (brewed with Mosaic and Citra)
Firestone Walker's collab will be an New Zealand Pils
Thanks for the update BottleCaps80! I am surprised to not see any IPA's yet. It is exciting to see these guys making different styles, though. I know it's the Summer Camp series, but I'm hoping we'll see a darker beer in the mix, like a porter or stout. Either way, this series is gonna be freaking epic.
Needs more IPA
Don't worry. At least 6 of the remaining 8 will be IPAs or IPA variants.
I'm just worried about them all using Sierra' house yeast. This could be 12 beers that all taste like Torpedo.
I think the problem is unrealistic expectations and not the beer. Most collaborations, if they were to be brewed by a single brewery, would be viewed more highly than they are as a collab. For some reasons people have a tendency to believe that simply because you have two breweries that you will produce a beer that is exponentially better. Collaborations are about much more than making beer to impress the overzealous beer geeks, the sooner we learn this the sooner we can allow ourselves to enjoy some damn fine beer.
MEANWHILE, AT THE HALL OF JUSTICE...
for the collaboration...does sierra nevada do everything and they just ask the other breweries brewer input on the recipe?
If these collabs are anything like the collabs that I am familiar with it is a Sierra Nevada beer, as SNBill said they put up all the material, equipment and resources, they just ask their friends to come out and make some beer with them. In many cases the guest brewery comes and hangs out, joins in the process.
Think of it in terms of bands. Stop Draggin My Heart Around was the first single from Stevie Nicks debut solo album. The song was written by Tom Petty, who also sang on the album as well. The song was definitely a join effort but in terms of the album, it is a Stevie Nicks song.
This sounds incredible! I'm stoked that New Glarus and Bell's are on board
Less IPA's please, more variety.
I'm not going to lie, up until the last few months, I've had a negative view of SN. I'm definitely on board with SN now that I've had Harvest Ale and Narwhal and have enjoyed most of the other specialties that I've tried. The midwesterner in my makes me really excited to see what they do with New Glarus and Three Floyds. I bet they'll be knocking it out of the park.
I would love to see this in distribution to places that receive Sierra Nevada currently. Several breweries listed don't distribute here themselves.
water yeast and pinecones=sn ipa's
