The Open Bar - Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Sample Pack

Editor's Note: Another semi-regular feature starting up here. "The Open Bar" will focus on all the wonderful drinking options FBMers should avail themselves of.

This spring Sierra Nevada Brewing Company will release their twelve-pack sampler "Beer Camp". This year, however will be a bit different. 

The Chico, California brewery invited some of America's best breweries to join them and collaborate on twelve individual beers that highlighted each's best qualities. 

The result was "Beer Camp Across America", one of the most innovative and amazing sampler packs ever. Those in the SA distribution network (which includes most of the U.S.) will have to chance to sample many breweries that were once only obtainable via trade or long roadtrip. The project is the perfect symbol of the anti-competitive, pro-collaboration world of craft beer. 

The list of breweries and beers they made for "Beer Camp":

Allagash Brewing Company, Portland, ME - Belgian-Style Pale Ale 
Ballast Point Brewing Company, San Diego, CA - India Pale Lager
Bell’s Brewery, Inc., Kalamazoo, MI - Imperial Dark Ale
Cigar City Brewing, LLC, Tampa, FL - Tropical Mai Bock
Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Paso Robles, CA - Hoppy Pilsner
New Glarus Brewing Company, New Glarus, WI - English Style Bitter
Ninkasi Brewing Company, Eugene, OR - Coffee Milk Stout
Oskar Blues Brewing Company, Longmont, CO - Rye Bock
Russian River Brewing Company, Santa Rosa, CA - Beligan-Style Blonde
Three Floyds Brewing, LLC, Munster, IN - Pale Ale
Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown, PA - Altbier
Local brewing community in Asheville, NC - Scottish Ale

Sierra Nevada has partnered with a dozen exceptional craft breweries to create 12 different beers for one mixed 12-pack – including 10 bottles and two cans – another first in the craft beer world. The Beer Camp Across America 12-pack will be available throughout the U.S. this summer.

More information about the process, a beer festival in seven U.S. cities, and details for each beer can be found at: http://beercamp.sierranevada.com/.
