The 13 Best Beers for Spring

New weather, new beer. Hello sunshine!


Sierra Nevada’s third annual “Beer Camp” program is currently shipping out across the country. We wrote about the program when it was first announced due to the big news that this year’s collaboration program — in which Sierra Nevada teamed up with a dozen breweries to create 12 distinct and world-class beers — would include six breweries from outside the US and one infamous brewery from Massachusetts: Tree House Brewing.

“Each brewery was picked by our founders as ones that they respect and admire,” said Robin Gregory, spokesperson for Sierra Nevada. “We learn a lot from the other brewers. We’ve been around for a long time, and we are always looking for new ways to be innovative. We are doing everything we can to push craft forward. A rising tide lifts all boats.”

The 12-packs are just hitting shelves now. Keep an eye out at your local beer store or head over to our friends at CraftShack to buy the beer online.
