Yvan the Great: Beer Camp Across America

Yvan the Great is a Belgian-style blonde made through a collaboration of Sierra Nevada Brewing and Russian River Brewing.

Golden yellow color with very little foam and low carbonation. Floral saison yeastiness on the nose. It’s bone dry with resinous, citrus and spice hops notes. The distinctive Belgian farmhouse yeast gives it a bit of a saison character. It has a lot of hops at 50 IBU and 6.3 ABV.

It’s not like any Belgian blondes I’ve had. Call it a West Coast Belgian-inspired blonde. Either way you’ll love it.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
