Sierra Nevada hosts a Beer Camp each year and the lucky participants work with the brewer to try some recipes and create something new for Sierra Nevada. Sierra Nevada releases a Best of Beer Camp 12 pack that contains 3 bottles of four different selections. When I see this offered up each year, I just pick up a twelve pack as the selections are always tasty and there is a good mix of different styles. This year’s selection included a Pilsner, an Imperial Red Ale, an IPA, and an Oatmeal Stout. I had tasted Red-Oric, the Imperial Red, at Parry’s earlier this year and I thought it was very good. The Oatmeal Stout was excellent and my favorite of the selections, followed closely by Red-Oric, the Floral IPA, and finally the Pilsner. All of these selections are very good and these are only in stores for a limited time – get them while they are still available.
