Sierra Nevada Beer Camp, Yvan The Great, with Russian River, Beer Review 278

Yvan The Great is part of Sierra Nevada Brewing’s Beer Camp, a series of 12 collaboration Beers with 12 American Craft Breweries. Yvan The Great is a Belgian Blonde Ale Brewed in collaboration withRussian River Brewing from Santa Rosa California.

6.3% ABV 50 IBU’s

As longtime friends, Russian River brewmaster Vinnie Cilurzo and our own Brian Grossman are no strangers to brewing experiments. While looking for inspiration for this collaboration, Vinnie and Brian decided to honor the creations of legendary Belgian brewer Yvan De Baets with their own hop-forward American-Belgian mash-up.
From complex Belgian-inspired styles to American wild ales and hoppy Double IPA’s, Russian River always pushes boundaries while respecting technique and quality. Co-owners Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo are longtime friends of Sierra Nevada and they always have a six-pack of Pale Ale in their fridge at home.
