It just wouldn’t be the holiday season without the annual release of Sierra Nevada’s legendary Celebration. This popular beer was first introduced in the winter of 1981 and since then, it has become a welcome favorite on the holiday table. Each year, debates rage about the brewery’s choice of spices for this holiday beer. The unique spiced flavors of juniper, citrus rind, and cinnamon come from the dry-hopping with a blend of fresh whole-cone hops. Celebration Ale is also a versatile food beer, pairing well with many of the traditional holiday staples. Its full, creamy body and clean, moderately bitter finish cut through the rich flavors of turkey and sage stuffing, roasted honey ham, standing rib of beef and succulent Christmas gravy.
