Stone & Sierra Nevada Collaboration NxS IPA

Forget Sonny & Cher, Captain & Tennille or Hall & Oates, this is the greatest team-up in history. Two of my favorite all-time breweries, Stone and Sierra Nevada, have collaborated on a beer and what else would it be but an IPA? It certainly sounds delicious. Happy hunting!

"A California collaboration that blends a dry-hopped IPA with a barrel-aged IPA.

For many, California is considered an epicenter for brewing innovation, particularly where hoppy IPAs are concerned. We teamed up with our longtime craft compatriots and mutual hop admirers at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to create a truly one-of-a-kind IPA.

This special-edition beer conveys the true character of collaboration with touches of inventiveness and creativity. Two batches of an IPA were brewed and expertly blended to craft this multilayered beer. We took the first batch of IPA and aged half of it in gin-infused bourbon barrels and the other half in rye whiskey barrels. The second batch was brewed a month later and generously dry-hopped to impart rich aromas to accompany the citrusy, piney, woody, herbaceous flavors achieved from this truly one-of-a-kind collaboration."
