Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Ale 2010 | Beer Geek Nation Video Beer Reviews Episode 108

Far and away one of the freshed most incredible smelling beers you will ever have. Sierra Nevada really pours everything they have into this beer and it is a shining example of how an “estate” ale should be done.

Here in the sun-drenched fields of California’s North Valley, the black soil is rich with promise. In winter, rows of barley seed are laid in the freshly tilled dirt. In spring, trellises are set for hops. From our fields comes a remarkable homegrown ale, made with organic wet hops and barley grown at our brewery here in Chico and one of the few estate-made ales produced anywhere in the world! This Estate Ale is rich with the flavors of the valley—featuring hops with earthy, grapefruit-like flavors and layered spicy aromas and barley with mild sweetness and smooth, toasted flavors. Together, these crops grow alongside the brewery to make a truly unique brew.
