This is from the 2017 Beer Camp Across the World pack from Sierra Nevada brewing. This year they joined with brewers not just all over the United States, as in past years, but from around the world as well. This 6.2% ABV lager was brewed with ginger and cayenne, then fermented on oak. It was made in collaboration with the Surly Brewing Company of Minnesota.
The beer pours a very dark honey golden in color. There is a tall, thick head of white foam. The aroma is full of ginger, with vanilla, and a touch of spice. The taste is gingery and hot, with a touch of oaky vanilla. There is a moderate woody bitterness on the finish.
