When our friends up at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company tapped us on the shoulder to collaborate on their 2017 North by South release, we jumped at the chance. We worked up a killer recipe that managed to take each of our award-winning iconic beers (Red Trolley Ale & Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, respectively) and combine them into one big, beautiful brew. Then we decided it was time to grab a van, hit the road, and share it with everyone.

Thus, the California Roadshow was born.

Showcasing the distinct hop forward qualities of Sierra’s Pale Ale and Red Trolley’s crisp malt backbone, NxS Red IPA is a classic combination that delivers on the unabashadly hoppy expectations of a West Coast IPA with enough malt character to please even the staunchest of old school craft beer fans.

We’ll be traveling through our home state making stops along the way in select cities with a ton of NxS, a slew of special release beers from each brewery, and commemorative glassware. The cherry on top of this hop sundae? Special appearances by both Karl Strauss Brewmaster Matt Johnson & Sierra Nevada Brewmaster Steve Dresler. Join us on our trek for a few pints and a chance to hang with some of the legendary elder statesmen of the Craft Beer revolution.
