Default Sierra Nevada Harvest to be bottled!!!

It's going to be bottled in 24oz bottles starting sometime in Sept or October. So far it's only been on tap.....I've only had it once.

Can't wait for the bottling!

I spoke with a local sales rep for SN and he anticipates it being on the shelves by Oct 1. He also said it is a very limited bottling.

He says the hops are used 24 hrs after harvesting.....

Really? I picked this up last Friday at the AJ's by my house. Great stuff!

Doh, I take that back, it was the Anniversary Ale I had. Sorry!

I nearly forgot to post that I had the Harvest and Anniversary ales last week.

The harvest was on tap and very interesting....herbal and extremely perfumey
Anniversary was decent, lots of cascade bite but I would have liked a touch more malt in the flavor.

So anyone else have comments about this beer. I picked one up today. I feel very lucky to be able to get it here and I have never had fresh hop beer.

It is pretty good, not as much aroma/flavor as I was expecting, but what is there is very complex. I was surprised to see that it is only Centennial and Cascade. I do not get the very intense citrus as you would expect.

I need to check my liquor store and see if they carry it.

I enjoyed this beer. There was some nice upfront bitterness with none on the back end. Very smooth aftertaste. I am keeping my eye out for this in the bottle

I was planning on picking up a single to see how the bottled version compares to the draught version...

I've had no luck finding this in the Chicago area. Anyone know if its available in IL? We get the Celebration, Summer, Bigfoot, Anniversary, etc. so figured this wouldn't be too hard to find.

I'll be in Cleveland next weekend and set aside some $ to buy some stuff I can't get in IL. Anyone know if this is easily found in the Cleveland area?
