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.

Nothing bad to say! It shipped on time, arrived with the contents well protected and turned into a very tasty Sierra Nevada clone. Just finished bottle conditioning and sharing with friends right now! Well done!
Love the taste of this beer! I'm not sure what I did, but it turned out better tasting that Sierra Nevada does IMO. Used 3/4 cup table sugar as opposed to the corn sugar. Will be brewing this one again in the near future.
I've made this kit 4 times, excellent on draft in corny kegs. Always used the Wyeast liquid, started fermenting in 12 hours at °72. Nice & active, lots of bubbles. Serve ice cold! Stay safe my friends.
Even after some hardware problems with my brewing equipment that resulted in a longer than normal process, this beer turned out well and is enjoyable. I’ll do it again (without problems hopefully).
I like the beer, but the color was that of an amber ale. The kit included a Golden Malt Extract. It was pretty dark in color. The hops treatment finished the beer nicely. This was a first try for this beer. Thanks
