This beer was chosen when I read the description and said “What is this??”.

I’m not a Pilsner guy, but I’m always willing to try one. Especially when it has a name as good as this.
The second day of my beer journey saw me driving almost all the way across the beautiful state of California (from Reno, Nevada to Chico, California). So it was no surprise that by the time I made it to Sierra Nevada I was hankerin’ for a beer. More specifically for a beer with some hops! Being that I don’t get up that way very often I wanted to try something that I hadn’t had before and probably wouldn’t get access to again. I scanned the back page of their beer menu and saw a Black IPA that caught my eye. It was part of their Beer Camp series, so I knew that this might be my only chance. With the sun setting I made my first beer order.
I woke up early Friday, October 7th, loaded up my car and headed north on the I-5. The destination: Chico, California and the second annual Sierra Nevada Brewing Company Oktoberfest. Being that I haven’t been to an Oktoberfest celebration in a while and that the event fit into my schedule (heading to Seattle on Sunday) I thought it was a no brainer to make the stop.
