Sierra Nevada Brewing Announces Dates and Locations For Beer Camp On Tour 2017

After a successful revamp of its 2014 Beer Camp Across America, Sierra Nevada Brewing returned with this collaboration 12 pack and road show in 2016 with a stop in Seattle (here’s our review). The premise is that Sierra Nevada Brewing collaborates with other notable brewers on a mixed 12 pack. Then it invites these collaborative partners along with every other brewery to serve beer at one of the stops on its traveling beer festival.

Sierra Nevada returns in 2017 with an expanded edition, Beer Camp Across the World collaborator 12 pack. This year the brewery invited six American breweries and six international breweries to participate. The collaborative breweries include Boneyard Beer, Avery, The Bruery, Surly, Saint Arnold, and Tree House from the United States. International collaborators are Kiuchi Brewery, Garage Project, Ayinger, Duvel, Mikkeller, and Fuller’s. This new Beer Camp Across the World Collaborator 12 pack is set to go on-sale on June 1, 2017.

Jon Page wrote an article in All About Beer Magazine that recapped this year’s multi-pack from a preview he attended at Sierra Nevada about a month ago. You can read Page’s review of the 2017 Beer Camp Across the World here.

The release of Beer Camp Across the World Collaborator 12 Pack will be launched alongside the 2017 Beer Camp on Tour. This traveling beer festival will take these breweries across the United States to eight different cities. Seattle will be a host city for the second consecutive year when Beer Camp on Tour takes place at Gasworks Park on Friday, June 30th.

Beer Camp on Tour is the largest craft beer celebration as every craft brewery is invited. The tour brings together local and out-of-state breweries with thousands of craft beer fans and all proceeds benefit local non-profits working to advance your craft beer community.
