Sierra Nevada Brewing - 30 Years

This is mainly for Brewer12345 but is quite interesting, nonetheless:

Will watch at home. Read an interesting article on the company's recent doings in a homebrewing magazine. They have always been fanatical about quality and it shows in their products.

+1.

Fritz Maytag in that clip is from the Maytag Appliance family. I kinda knew the story, but I found this from wikipedia, and it fills in a bit of the admiration you see in this clip:

Frederick Louis Maytag III - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Hearing that the Steam Beer Brewing Company was about to close and looking for something serious to do with his life, Maytag bought the company in 1965 and made it his mission.

.... throughout the coming years demand continued to climb. Not wanting to sacrifice the small size of the brewery, and in turn the quality of the beer, Maytag helped competitors become proficient in microbrewing. This helped to ease the strain on his own company.
There was a cool Sierra Nevada story on one of the homebrewing forums. A homebrewer had moved to Japan and couldn't get Sierra Nevada Pale Ale there. He contacted their brewer, and the guy actually spent a lot of time helping him perfect the recipe at a homebrew level. That thread is like 47 pages long. It's actually a pretty simple recipe, so I guess you need to get the details right. I've made it a couple times and was pretty happy with the result. I bet they sold a lot of SNPA to guys like me, picking up a six pack to compare side-by-side!

ERD, if you can find it in your market, try the Glissade spring seasonal. It is a simply amazing liquid panty remover beer.

Thanks, I just checked and a local store carries it. I love a good Bock/DoppleBock/MaiBock. Will give it a taste.

Speaking of doppelbocks - Spaten Optimator!


Other fave darks:
Moose Drool (Big Sky Brewing) - but we can't get it in TX.


Sometimes can find Wee Heavy by Belhaven in TX - yes!

Heh, Spaten. They make what I consider to be the best oktoberfest in the world. For a while their importer in the US was a smallish beer distributor in Queens,NY not far from where we live. We got the freshest stuff off the boat for like 4 bucks a six pack.

Well Spaten come a long way since in terms of US distribution. To our undying gratitude, Spaten beers are widely available in TX, which is saying a lot, considering how many fantastic domestic brews are not available.

Thanks for the tip. Ran some errands today, so I picked up a six-pack ($8.99, not bad for a maibock). Had one with dinner, and I agree, really excellent. mmmmm, malty, but not overwhelming in any way - just a really great maibock. Looking forward to the next five.

DW had a sip and really liked it too, ummm, probably not enough to affect panty attachment, but....

And the "panty removal" aspect?

Mmm-mmm! Thanks for the tip. My wife bought me a 12 pack for my birthday. It's excellent! It's also going to go great with the big pot of seafood gumbo she's making today.

Six posts in almost a year. There's nothing like a cool brew to bring 'em out. GalaxyBoy, has anything changed since this post last year?:

I voted that I'm retiring later, but if work keeps sucking as bad as it does right now I may have to change that. Right now, FireCalc tells me I could do it if I cut back on my lifestyle, but I'm planning on pulling the trigger in 3-5 years.

Heya was anyone at Dark Lord Day in Munster, IN this weekend? Crazy crowd but good time. I still haven't perfected my Dark Lord recipe but I'll keep working on it, I don't get many iterations in since it takes so long to age out.

Hello, conpewter, great to see another infrequent poster; guess we need more brew threads! Took me awhile to figure out your username, had to get a clue from your profile.
