Before Sierra Nevada was a reality, their founders brewed beer at home and dreamed of building a brewery one day. Back then, they brewed the beers they wanted to drink—bold and full of flavor. Stouts had always been a favorite, so when they needed a big and rich beer to test out the brewing system at the fledgling brewery, stout was the obvious choice. Thirty years later, not much has changed. Sierra Nevada is still brewing the beers they want to drink and their classic Stout is the same as it’s ever been—big, rich, bold, black as night and filled with the wild-eyed passion of which dreams are made.
