The 2016 Beer Camp Across America mixed 12 pack and its draft offerings are now rolling out into the marketplace. It was nearly two years ago when Sierra Nevada Brewing took on a huge, ambitious project called Beer Camp Across America (BCAA) where the then Chico based brewery collaborated with 12 other highly regarded breweries from across the US and brewed beers for a mixed 12-pack. To make this project even more exciting Sierra Nevada took to the road and traveled across this great land of ours and hosted BCAA beer festivals in all regions of the country.

Now with the recent opening of Sierra Nevada’s new brewery in Mills River, NC the brewery is taking on this challenge once again by bringing on 30 new breweries plus Sierra Nevada itself to bring the total to 31 participating breweries. These breweries hail from 6 regions of the country to do 6 collaboration beers with that will end up in a 2016 edition 12-pack of BCAA.

“We created Beer Camp Across America to be a true national celebration of craft beer,” said Sierra Nevada Founder and President, Ken Grossman in a news release. “As part of that, we brought our fellow brewers and friends who share our passion, admiration and bold approach to pushing brewing boundaries along for the ride.”

The beers featured in the 2016 Beer Camp Across America 12 pack includes Sweet Sunny South Southern Table Beer, Pat-Rye-Ot Revolutionary Pale Ale, West Latitude Session Rye with Hibiscus, Moxee-Moron Imperial Session IPA, Family Values Imperial Brown Ale, and Stout of the Union Robust Stout. The 12 pack will consist of two beers of each limited-edition style at a suggest retail of $28.99–$29.99. Various beer styles will also be available on draught nationwide.

“Leveraging decades of experience, these celebrated beer pioneers tinkered with flavors, explored native and exotic ingredients and poured heart and soul into the process,” said Sierra Nevada Vice President, Brian Grossman in a news release. “Camaraderie resulted in truly exceptional brews. We’re all looking forward to sharing these beers with our fans and celebrating these collaborations at festivals across the country this summer.”
