Ummm. My favorite time of year, the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale release. My first love in commercial beer. I just picked up two 12 packs of this in WA today. They had it on sale as well to drum up interest. From what I have read it is out everywhere with people having picked it up in the midwest and back east already.

It's another winner. Clocking in at 6.8% which is where I think it was last year. Deep amber malty backbone with lots of hops coming over the top. It might taste just a tad heavier than last year. Man I love this beer. I usually pick up 10 or 20 12 packs in mid to late Jan and they last me into late spring/early summer.

Go grab em while they're fresh.

Primary: German Hef, Belgian IPA, Scottish 80, Belgian Dubbel
On Tap: Oatmeal Stout, Vanilla Oatmeal Stout, Belgian Dark Strong, Munich Dunkel, Dunkel Weizen, Oktoberfest, Bock, IPA, Black IPA, English IPA, Pale Ale

I don't know if it's the homebrewing and the tasting of more beers or what, but this year's Celey just hits the spot. I taste more hops, less bitterness, and more malt than any other year. I need to clone this beer over the next few months...I need it on tap all the time!

Fermenting: ESB
Kegged: Extra IPA, Brown Ale, American Wheat, Blackheart Stout
Coming Up: Dunkleweizen, 3C Pale Ale

I had a few last night. I'm not too impressed with it really. I don't buy a lot of beer and when I do I was something different or better than I make.
Everything is better with a beer.
