The Family Values Imperial Brown Ale from the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across America collaboration project puts the ingredients and ingenuity of the Midwest on full display. Chocolaty malt flavor and Indiana honey combine to make an ale somewhere between mead and a milkshake. This syrupy ale will coat your palate in dark chocolate & dark fruit while fireworks of lemony hops provide an enjoyable contrast. This rare collaboration is a must-try and is worth some cellaring experimentation if you can bring yourself to lock it away.
