    yes it is only April. But! I got bored and started browsing old Sierra Nevada Fall seasonals and I remembered the fan favorite Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale. And it is listed on there site.. I wonder if they just forgot to take it down when they discontinued it or maybe it is making a comeback.. possibly as a stand alone or in there fall pack this year? Because it is confirmed they are making a fall pack this year. I’ll post it below.

    Sometimes the Sierra Release Date map has a small easter egg in whats coming (look at the party pack for this summer, it has the Mexican beer) Maybe someone can make out the pixelated beers in the packaging on the site for the fall release?

    I am going to assume from their fb page and the tiny image now on the website it is going to be Pale Ale, Vienna Lager, Tumbler, Ruthless Rye.

    Tumbler’s an OK beer, but I’ll always remember it as the Fall seasonal that replaced their Anniversary IPA, an under-the-radar great beer.

    True. It also reminds me of the fact that they never brought back Glissade Golden Bock as their spring seasonal. That was another under-the-radar great beer

    I miss Flipside and red IPAs in general I have found that I seem to enjoy but it was nice to have it back earlier this year in a mixed pack.

    If I am correct about the lineup this year I will be drinking through a few of these packs and this would be a great party pack, something for everyone.

    That's a great fall pack. I have no complaints about any of those choices.

    I loved Glissade too, it was terrific. Shame it only lasted 2 seasons, but I’d love to see it brought back in a mix-pack.

    IIRC it was replaced by Ruthless Rye, definitely not one of my fave SN offerings.

    Replace the SNPA with the Oktoberfest and I will buy a box van with a loading dock

    Get over it. SNPA is a great beer and you'll appreciate the 3 bottles. Especially since they could have tried to move something like sidecar, otra vez, hop Hunter or tropical torpedo instead.

    Same difference for me. They just sit in my fridge till someone else drinks them or I pour them out 6 months later.

    Agree - I like that it kinda “forces” me to drink SNPA (& appreciate its goodness) in as much I’d normally not buy a 6-er of it.

    Agree....I do t get the SNPA love......many years ago it was a nice fruity puppy beer. Now and the last 10 years or so it's a blah beer. I drank AAL for a good six months and that helped hoppy beer taste hoppy again and many flavors I lost came back. The first beer I tried was SNPA. It was still not good.

    Enjoy

    I'm glad my palate and preferences are different from yours. Everytime I come across it at the closest gas station when coming out of the wilderness I grab one (unless the Torpedo is fresher). For my palate and preferences its far more satisfying than many of the 'juice' APAs/IPAs/DIPAs out there. I welcome those moments. YMMV

    Do I think it should be in nearly every mix 12, no. But its inclusion in Spring and Summer definitely feels appropriate. Fall and Winter may depend more on your locale. Cheers

    Not a "juice" fan. Much prefer an IPA that is really pine and earth forward. Torpedo is not that beer. SN has many beers that taste very similar.


    Daisy cutter is a much better pale ale to me And only a minor bit more per oz. I pay $40 for SNPA vs $60 for DC 16 oz.

    Either way SNPA used to do it for me in the early 1980's but has not for a long time. Why? I don't know.

    Enjoy
