Blindfold - as the name suggests - blankets us in darkness, yet maintains a surprisingly light body and bold hoppy character. This black IPA features Australian hop varieties: Nelson Sauvin, and Southern Cross, paired with American Chinook hops to produce an aromatic and fruity hop aroma, which contrasts the coffee-like malt flavors and dry finish.

In 1979, Ken Grossman and Paul Camusi built a brewery from dairy tanks, a soft-drink bottler, and equipment salvaged from defunct breweries. Named for Grossman’s favorite hiking grounds, Sierra Nevada has expanded to include not only award-winning ales and lagers, but also the elegant Sierra Nevada Taproom and Restaurant.
