I picked up a six-pack of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale today and realized it would be an ideal pick for today’s beer. Sierra Nevada is one of America’s oldest and best craft breweries, and their beers prove it. Celebration Ale scores an outstanding 90 (out of a hundred) on BeerAdvocate with 99% approval.
I always like it when the website offers suggested food pairings; Sierra Nevada’s is:
With an ale as big as Celebration, you need a dish assertive enough to hold its own. Rich meats such as prime rib, lamb, or wild fowl underscore Celebration’s huge aroma, making a wonderful holiday meal. Intense, earthy pastas also work well—try goat cheese ravioli, a rich fettuccine, or gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese sauce.
I haven’t sampled any of the six-pack I bought today, but now I’m looking forward to it tomorrow!
