Surly Ginger Lager
One of the 12 Sierra Nevada Across the World collaborations, this time with Minnesotan brewers Surly. They have brewed a lager infused with hot gingerand a touch of cayenne (which emphasises the ginger heat) before fermenting on a blend of oak honeycombs and hops. This may seem like an odd concept - and let's be honest, it IS an odd concept - but the finished beer more than makes up for the seemingly strange combonation of flavours. The ginger is bright and crisp, the cayenne falls just below the heat threshold, and the oak adds a delicate roundness to the finish. This ultra-crisp lager is very balanced and incredibly drinkable and will be one of the sleeper hits of the beer Camp pack.
