Product details

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.

Sierra Madre Pale Ale

Quick brew. The fastest kit I've made. One week to ferment, two weeks to bottle condition. Smooth, mild, simple flavor. Now, if only NB could process their orders in less time than this took to ferment....

Great result

The sierra madre kit came out great. It took a little longer than some other ales with secondary time and best results at 4 weeks and beyond bottle conditioning but worth the wait. I did a side by side taste test with the real deal, which seemed a little maltier but I liked the Madre better !

Sierra Madrea has become a standard for my brew efforts. Very easy to brew with a rate of excellent results. I use a fining to clarify full this. This recipe produce a very clean and flavorful final brew.
All I can say is “Keep brewing everyone.” Remember to relax in your brewing & enjoy the fruits of your efforts.
