What’s so awesome about Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.?
There was no such thing as craft beer in 1980, so, with just a few thousand dollars and some used dairy equipment, Ken Grossman founded Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. The success of Ken’s award winning ales propelled him from homebrewer to craft brewer. Today, Ken and his family still own 100% of the company — one of the most successful independent craft breweries in America.
What’s new or upcoming for you in 2018?
There’s always something happening, like the release of Hazy Little Thing IPA, the growth of Pale Ale the Craft Original, our upcoming Oktoberfest Collaboration and more. But good things come to those who wait!
What’s so awesome about the Des Moines area beer scene?
A cohesive collection of Local, Regional and National Craft Beers, in a place where we all get along and call home.
