This article on Sierra Nevada’s Celebration ale is fascinating to me.

First there’s the historical elements, about how the beer was built. I didn’t know that Celebration was a fresh hop ale, for example.

However, the interviews also go into the nuanced parts of making the beer, about how hops will change over time (I didn’t know this) and how getting them at a particular window can have a big impact on flavor. Even changing the hopping process by a day has an impact.

Finally, it’s just an enthusiastic account of how they made and now make the Celebration. It’s great to see people still thrilled to make a beer that so well established, now.
