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.

If you love Sierra Nevada Pale Ale you will love making a pretty close clone.The cascade hops give it that west coast zing. I used the liquid West Coast yeast. i will make 2-3 times this year.

Great Pale Ale Recipe

I brewed this beer in early February and am now drinking it via my keg. Very good recipe that was easy to brew and is very enjoyable to drink. Although it can stand on its own, I added some of my home grown hops to the secondary fermenter and some blackberry powder to the keg to turn it into what I call a Blackberry APA. Turned out excellent - I could not be happier.
