Sierra Madre Pale Ale Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Decidedly clean, firmly hoppy, and drinkably bitter. More than any other, this widely-imitated ale is responsible for bringing craft beer into the national consciousness and re-introducing America to real beer. Now it's a classic. And thanks to the fresh ingredients and expert know-how packed into this recipe kit, it's a classic you can brew and enjoy at home.
All of you out there currently enjoying that chocolate Bourbon-barrel-Brettanomyces continuously-wet-hopped Imperial black IPA, take a moment and say a silent "thank you" to the humble West Coast American Pale Ale. Sure, it might seem tame to your 21st century craft beer sensibilities and overloaded palate, but back when Northern Brewer was four dudes and a 20-foot storefront, this style was considered "extreme" beer -- and it's still going strong.
This isn't an ale that feels the need to jump up and down and scream for your attention. It's cooly confident you'll come looking for it when you're ready to appreciate the understated, so-much-more-than-basic beauty of a true classic.
From Chico, California to all points of the compass, whether you're pairing it with Mexican, burgers and fries, or just conversation, there's always a good time and a place for Sierra Madre Pale Ale.

Fantastic casual pale ale! Full of flavor!
2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondary. Keg with CO2, week 5 enjoying the clean Taste, with just enough hop and bitter. ABV at 5.78 on this one. Will do again.
Easy way to brew, just follow the directions! Or not - if you have some experience and are limited with equipment. I don't do a secondary fermentation or use priming sugar (I use the Fizz Drops when bottling straight out of the fermenter). It's all good! The grains that come with these kits help these beers taste fresher than just extract only kits. Great Products!
Great kit makes a very tasty ale. My brew was a bit darker in appearance than the website photo, but flavor is good. I'm a IPA drinker, so this is for my non-IPA friends would like an ale, just not the bitterness.
