About 1979 Stout by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

This is a re-imagined version of the original Sierra Nevada beer. Brewed to commission their first brewery, and to kick start every brewhouse after, this stout has the perfect balance of roasted malt character and citrusy hop flavor.


We set out with a simple goal: brew the beers we wanted to drink. We started small, with a homebrew shop, a love of American hops and plenty of passion. In the process, we changed the beer world forever. Decades later, we’re still at it, and the passion burns brighter than ever.
