Complex yet rustic farmhouse ale.

An homage to the monks’ noble work, this unique farmhouse ale is incredibly complex with notes of lemon, pepper, straw and herbs balanced by the tang of Mandarin oranges and a spicy kick of pepper. The Mandarin oranges used to make this beer were locally grown, including a portion grown on the grounds of the Abbey of New Clairvaux and picked by hand by the community of monks living there. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

50_russellRussell: At Beer Camp this spring I had the pleasure of visiting the Ovila Monastary grounds.  They grow the Mandarin’s right there on the property, the monks tend to the farming. 

Our Beer Camp beer is almost here, we’re going to be tapping it soon.  Keep an eye out for it, we’ll throw a party!

More on Belgian Beers:

The beers of Belgium have gained fame as being some of the most unique brewed anywhere in the world. A stark counterpoint to the beers of Germany which conform to the Reinheitsgebot—a purity law stating that beer can only be made from four ingredients: malt, hops, water, and yeast—Belgian beers follow no such rules. Belgian beers often use spices and sugar adjuncts, as well as fruit or herbs and unique “wild” yeasts or other microorganisms to produce exciting and varying flavors. American craft brewers often find inspiration in these no-holds-barred brews and carry on their spirit of innovation.


Brewers Dozen

Guess which bar is the exclusive north Idaho destination for the Brewers Dozen promotion by Sierra Nevada? You guessed it, Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge. Sierra Nevada recognizes that we’ve been drinking a lot of their beer, because it’s good, and now there is a very cool promotion coming our way.

Brewers Dozen Limited Draught Calendar

Sierra Nevada is releasing a different unique and amazing craft beer each month of the year, and two in August, making a Brewers Dozen (13) different beers. We’ll be tapping one each month and announcing it via this email list. If you want to know right away when the keg is tapped, join the Keg Tap Text service which sends you a text message when a new keg is tapped. People on the Keg Tap Text service knew about this keg a week ago!

Get a Free Sierra Nevada T-Shirt

Come on down when we tap a new keg, and have a pint. Make sure it’s under your name and account, complete with postal address. We’ll keep track and if you succeed in ordering a pint from every single keg of the Brewers Dozen, you will receive a free Sierra Nevada T-Shirt!

These are all small batch, small keg beers, so we won’t be doing growler fills, and even then there are only an estimated 40 pints per keg. To get the T-Shirt you have to order a pint from every keg, so when it gets tapped, better hurry!
