Sierra Nevada's Brother - It's Harvest Season

There are a lot of breweries that are throwing the word "Harvest" onto beers, which, and please correct me if I'm wrong, just means that it's a new beer made from ingredients from a specific time of year.

Well I had the opportunity to try Sierra Nevada's Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale, and enjoyed it. It was a lot stronger than their pale ale, coming in at 6.7%. You could feel the difference and it has a lot of earthy tones, which was my only complaint.


No big story here on this one. I was at the same bar as the last one, and preceded this brew with Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale. What came after? Read on my friend.
