Beer Camp – Collaboration Brews

Beer Camp Across America is practically craft beer nirvana in a box. Sierra Nevada teamed up with 12 different craft breweries across the US to make 12 different brews. Then they went on tour and partied, inviting local craft breweries to serve their brews at the festivals.

What a great idea! It’s really fun to see the collaborations, and to anticipate trying out all of these brews. Be sure to watch the video trailer on their site: Beer Camp. 

Unfortunately for us, the Beer Camp party sadly neglected the Northwest as far as the festivals went. Ninkasi Brewing out of Portland was one of the collaborators, but the closest festival was in California. As much as we wanted to drop everything and head off there, it wasn’t possible. If a collaboration/party like this ever happens again, I hope they will stop in Washington, as we have some of the best craft breweries in the country (I’m not at all biased, though).

Beer Camp Box

We were lucky enough to find the 12 pack at a local bottle shop – The Beer Camp collaboration brews are sold as a mixed 12 pack (10 bottles and 2 cans), and were going fast.
