I just saw the Harvest Fresh Hop Ale this last weekend. The 2 bottles I bought didn't last long. Nice hoppy flavor.

Double Yum!

Oh my....I went to the tavern last night, and this was the featured special ($2.50 a pint). I had four.

This beer was really, really good.

Considering the '07 hop/grain harvest related thread, maybe this should have been a sour or super low OG beer.

If you liked the Harvest Ale, you'd love the 20th Street ale on draft at the brewery. It's right up the street from me.....neener neener

Shane, it is basically another Harvest Ale that SNBC used their own hops from their hop yards adjacent to the brewery. It is in draft only at this time and it is wonderful. I sent you a PM if you'd like to hook up for a pint or three.

Here is the description from their beer menu.

Full-bodied ale that uses our estate grown Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook hops in the kettle boil. Flowery, hoppy nose and aggressive hop on the palate will make this a favorite of anyone that loves our humulus-lupulus-dosed ales.

Hey Bob, I wish that we had ordered a picture of this instead of the Harvest Ale.

I hear you Tom. If I knew HA was going to be bottled for sale in the store, I would've went with the 20th Street.

Sierra Nevada was at the Dixie Cup last weekend. Steve Groseman did a great presentation on their company. Of course, they brought lots of beer, including a few kegs of Harvest Ale and Anniversary Ale, plus a few cases of bottles. Don't bother to ask about what he said, the weekend was a blur....

He was introduced as Steve Grossman. Here is a poor picture of the first slide and one of Steve. I thought Steve and Ken were brothers...

Steve Grossman is the brother of the more well-known Ken Grossman, founder of Sierra Nevada Brewing. Complicating matters is the fact that another Steve, Steve Dressler, is SN's longtime head brewer. I heard Dressler speak at MCAB a number of years ago.
