Sierra Nevada ships first NC-brewed beer to the Triangle
Posted February 27, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — Sierra Nevada rolled out its first shipment of North Carolina-brewed beer to the Triangle on Wednesday.
Some of the Sierra's Pale Ale and Torpedo Extra IPAs included were brewed at the new Mills River brewery in Asheville and sent to Mims Distributing in Raleigh.
Representatives for the Chico, Calif.-based company said the closer proximity to North Carolinians will help stop the carbon footprint that shipping the beer across the country left. They also said the beer will be fresher.
