East vs West
« on: August 12, 2017, 06:00:29 AM »
This is a the name of a Treehouse/ Sierra Nevada collaboration that I didn't know existed until I was at a restaurant in my town and asked what was on tap. Anyone else see this? I don't know if it's widely available because of Sierra Nevada or if it's only around near Treehouse.
It was nice. It wasn't hazy and it seemed to have west coast style bitterness. I think what Treehouse brought was a fruitier as opposed to piny/ citrus hopping.

This is part of their "Beers Across the World" collaboration.  I highly recommend you buy the somewhat expensive twelve pack, which includes a beer from each of twelve colabs.

I haven't seen that, I'll definitely get it if I see it. On a related note I had a few different Treehouse offerings yesterday that my wife's cousin brought to a family gathering. All very nice. It's always good to drink their beer without standing in line myself.

Jeffy, I just picked up a case of this in case I really like one of them. Which have been your favorites so far? I have not opened any yet, so just curious

I think my favorite was the Surly Ginger Lager, but there were several other good ones.  Duvel Hoppy Belgian Golden was nice, Ayinger Dunkle Weiss as well.  Fullers and Saint Arnold colabs were also good.  I did not care for the Kiuchi white IPA with Yuzu or the Mikkeller Thai-style iced tea ale.
