A whole-cone hurricane of flavor.

Hoptimum is a hurricane of whole-cone hop flavor. Hopped, dry hopped and torpedoed for incredible hop flavor and complexity, Hoptimum is the pinnacle of whole-cone hoppiness and the biggest Imperial IPA we have ever produced. It features resinous hop varieties: Magnum, Chinook, Simcoe and a new experimental hop variety exclusive to Sierra Nevada. With intense hop flavors and aromas of grapefruit rind, pine, herbs and tropical fruit, Hoptimum is an aggressive drinking experience. Originally created as part of our Beer Camp program, Hoptimum throws down the gauntlet to all other IPAs.

Dry Hops

We work hard to get strong hop flavors into our beers and one of the ways we do that is through dry hopping. Dry hopping refers to the addition of whole-cone hops to the fermentation tanks. The addition of hops to cold beer allows the aromatic oils and resins to infuse the beer with flavor and aroma without adding any additional bitterness.

At Beer Camp this spring I had the pleasure of tasting this batch of Hoptimum directly off the dry hopping tanks.  Yum!!  Our Beer Camp beer is being loaded on a truck in Chico today, keep an eye out for it.

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!
