Our hop rhizomes will be here at the end of March. These beautiful plants are very prolific in hop production. Get them now while we still have them. They do an excellent job in hiding a fence or covering a trellis. Imagine drinking a hoppy IPA and smelling the fragrant aroma of your own Hops growing in your backyard. Happy Brewing!

Celebration Ale, A Festive fresh hop holiday fun beer!
You know its time to start thinking of the holidays when our most favorite beer of them all arrives. Just-in, we are letting all you die hard fans know that it’s time to come down and get a case or two or even a 1/6 barrel keg of this favorite crowd pleaser. Relatives will be making their way to your home and they’ll be looking for a bit of seasonal libations. Here’s the break-down of this yummy beer. Oh, and thank-you Sierra Nevada!
Now, a word from the brewery.
“At the start of the Celebration season, we can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have, the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.”
