Bold and flavorful ales are a great antidote for the long, cold, winter nights, and our Barrel-aged Abbey Quad is the perfect choice when the north wind begins to howl. Matured in oak casks used to age brandy, this intense ale has layers of flavorful and deep complexity. Caramel and dark fruit notes, blend seamlessly with the burned-sugar, date, black grape and vanilla notes with the burned sugar, date, black grape and vanilla notes of the brandy barrels creating a truly distinct and flavorful brew.
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.
