Sierra Nevada Torpedo
Pours amber in colour with a nice white head. Grapefruit, herbal grass and caramel on the nose. Fruity on the palate with a classic Pale Ale bitter hop finish.
Ken Grossman learned to homebrew from the father of a close friend. From an early age, he was enamored by the sights and smells of the fermenting jugs of bubbling beer, wine and sake. His first attempts at making beer were rudimentary at best, but began lifelong passion for the art of fermentation. Ken opened a homebrew supply store in downtown Chico, simply named The Home Brew Shop. As he and fellow homebrewer Paul Camusi got more into the craft, Grossman’s brewing became more and more elaborate, and, soon enough, people were eager to sample his new brews. Ken began planning a new small-scale brewery based in Chico. He took the name of his favorite hiking grounds in the nearby mountains and so, the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co was born.
