Our award-winning barleywine boasts a dense, fruity bouquet, an intense flavor palate and a deep reddish-brown color. Its big maltiness is superbly balanced by a wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness.
“…Bigfoot® captures the imagination, and its character is as big as the name implies, with a huge hoppiness in its earthy aroma, a chewy palate, and a great depth of flavor.”
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.
