In 1980, with a brewhouse cobbled together from recycled equipment, Sierra Nevada was born. We needed a beer with big, bold flavors to work out the kinks in the brewery. So, with lots of dark roasted malts and a hint of sweetness we created our first beer. In honor of this brew, we bring you our original Stout with a glance back to the early Sierra Nevada spirit. 2011 Winner WRAP Waste Reduction Awards Program.
Sierra Nevada Original Stout is a full-bodied American version of the traditional black ale. Perfectly balanced--with big roasted malt flavors and earthy, whole-cone hops.
In 1980--when our fledgling brewery was being built--we needed a big beer with bold flavors to test the new, hand-built brewhouse. That first brew was a stout rich with roasted malts and earthy, whole-cone American hops. We liked that original stout so much we've kept it with us as we've grown; and decades later, it still reminds us of that early pioneering spirit.
