Sierra Madre Pale Ale All Grain 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.

It is a very taste filled kit and I highly recommend this for brewers of all levels.
This is a great recipe, certainly my favourite so far.
Great beer! I kegged this after a week fermenting, no secondary. Super fresh flavor!
Brew day went great, OG within .001. This beer has such a great malty backbone, I like to dry hop it with some Centennial hops. Still fermenting, I can't wait to drink it.
This was a Little low on the hop flavor than I was expecting. It was probably more my fault than the recipe. I kegged it, it was super clear but low on flavor. After forced carbonation and refrigerated I decided to dry hop it in the keg for 2.5 days with a 1 oz of German pearl hop I had on hand, the result was awesome! Exactly what I was looking for.
