Sierra Nevada/New Glarus – Beer Camp Across America There and Back ESB: A collaboration with New Glarus Brewing this English Style Bitter was brewed at a strength of 5.6% abv and 40 IBUs. Apparently this breweries beer is next to impossible to get outside of Wisconsin, so unless I trade it seems that Beer Camp is the only exposure to this brewery that I will have unless I find another collaboration beer.

Overall Impression: Simple, yet in it’s simplicity it shines.
Rating: Very good at 7/10, well executed to style and tasty.
