SIERRA NEVADA DEBUTS INAUGURAL SINGLE, FRESH, WET & WILD HARVEST FESTIVAL
On October 19, to showcase namesake hop techniques, more than 50 craft breweries from across the country will fill Sierra Nevada’s hop field in Chico, California to pour a selection of their beers that will include at least one of said hopping techniques. The festival follows the annual fall US hop harvest, and precedes the February 2014 rollout of a series of Sierra Nevada large-format bottles that will feature such specially hopped beers, including its established Southern Hemisphere Harvest (fresh hopped) and Northern Hemisphere Harvest (wet hopped).
Festival tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. PDT, and benefit the California Craft Brewers Association. You can get your tickets here.
