Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. debuted two year-round beers in early 2015: Hop Hunter IPA and Nooner Pilsner. The brewery unveiled its newest spring seasonal selection, Beer Camp Hoppy Lager. Hop Hunter IPA features oil from wet hops that are steam-distilled in the hop field minutes after harvest. This pure, powerful hop essence is used alongside traditional hops, the company says. Hop Hunter IPA will be available year-round in 12-ounce bottles and on draft. Sierra Nevada also introduced its first year-round lager with Nooner Pilsner. Nooner is a German-style pilsner that’s easy to drink yet full of spicy and floral hop flavor from whole-cone European hop varietals, the company says. Nooner is available on draft, in six-packs of bottles and 12-packs of cans. Beer Camp Hoppy Lager rounds out Sierra Nevada’s new releases for early 2015. Hoppy Lager is a reimagined encore of the hop-forward collaboration with San Diego’s Ballast Point that was part of the Beer Camp Across America mixed pack.
