Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Ale is the first beer to be certified as organic from the brewery. The beer, which returns for a third year now also bears its third name. It was introduced as Chico Estate in 2008 and re-branded as Estate Brewers Harvest Ale in 2009. The first picking of the hops and brewing of the beer was to take place this week, according to Dresler. Despite being “Estate grown,” this is not a limited release. The brewery packaged 800-850 barrels last year which is more than hundreds of U.S. microbreweries and brewpubs produce in a single year. If I’m doing my math right, that is adds up to over 11,000 case equivalents. Look for the beer on shelves next month.
