Sierra Nevada is close to opening its new east coast brewery in Mills River, NC. To celebrate, they’ve been traveling the county while presenting a multi-weekend traveling beer festival in select cities. Two more take place this weekend (Portland, ME and Philadelphia, PA) before the final stop in Mills River on August 3.

In conjunction with the beer festivals, Sierra Nevada partnered with twelve other breweries to create a mixed twelve-pack with twelve different beers (ten bottles and two cans). Partner breweries included Cigar City, Russian River, Allagash, 3 Floyds and several other well-respected outfits. The result was a very interesting mixture of twelve styles from a latte stout to a rye bock to a Belgian-style pale ale and an English-style bitter.
The twelve-packs were quick sellers with relatively limited quantities, but if you’re in the Missoula area this Wednesday you have an exceptional opportunity to give them a try.
On Wednesday, July 30, The Rhino will have a small quantity of all twelve Beer Camp beers on tap in a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Tap Takeover. According to the Rhino, it is the only bar where you have the chance to try all twelve. The Rhino’s Brad Martens reports the taps will start flowing at 4:00 p.m.
The Rhino is located at 158 Ryman Street in Missoula.
