Beer Review 65: Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest 2011


Hello Beer Friends Nation! For this weeks Six Pack of the Week we go down under... to New Zealand!  This week we tried the Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest 2011.  The world on the street (and Sierra Nevada's website) is that this is the first American craft beer to use hops grown in the southern hemisphere, hand picked, dried and flown back to Chico, California and used in this Harvest brew.  The three hop varieties are Pacific Hallertau, New Zealand Motueka and New Zealand Southern Cross Hops - none of which these Beer Friends have heard of or tasted!  Southern Hemisphere!  New Hops!  G-Day Mate! Beer!
