Great Basin Sampler (Great Basin Brewing Co.)

On the second day of my vacation I stopped in at Great Basin Brewing Co.’s Sparks, Nevada location to try some of their beers. Since I didn’t want to drink too much or stay too long I decided to just get a sampler. They let you choose your own beers so I picked 6 beers that spanned the gamut of their offerings.

4th Anniversary Ale (Doppelsticke Alt) is an Alt-bier with 44 IBUs and an 8.8% ABV.
