Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary BottlesSierra Nevada Brewing Company did something really cool for their 30th anniversary; they brewed 4 special beers 3 of which were collaboration beers. The first of the series is a Stout that was brewed with Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing Co. and is 9.2% abv and perfect for aging. The second is an Imperial Helles Bock (8.3% abv) brewed with Charley Papazian founder of the Great American Beer Festival and Fred Eckhardt a beer journalist. These men are the two most esteemed homebrewes in the country and have the resume to back it. The Helles Bock is such a great beer and just blew us away when we sat down to drink it, full of floral hop aromas balanced with rich caramel malts.
