Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Ale

The Bayou got in a limited amount of Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Ale.

This beer is made with organic wet hops and barley grown at the brewery in Chico and is one of the few estate-made ales produced anywhere in the world.

The Estate Homegrown Ale has a spicy nose with earthy, grapefruit-like hop notes. The taste is the same. Layered with spicy aromas and barley with mild sweetness and smooth, toasted flavors.

Not as hoppy as some Sierra Nevada beers but still quite good.

Comes in a 25 oz. bottle and is 6.7% abv.

Cheers!

The Estate is now wax dipped and 30% higher in price- yeah! We used to get tons of this in the state stores, maybe we still will.

They have it at the wine store on 3rd west. I picked up a bottle today. I can't wait to try it.

For us beer drinkers in Utah County, you should know that it's in the Lindon Store. The Lindon (North Orem) location is fast becoming the best beer location in the state!
