In this special Beer Camp blog, we are going to get into the first of a few beers from this year’s Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. This is their Sweet Sunny South Table Beer. Beer Camp has five different breweries on each brew and with Sierra Nevada in six beers in different parts of the United States. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this California base craft brewery. Let us get into this table beer.
It has a slight cloudy peach like color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy sweet peach notes. The taste has a refreshing peach notes with peach tea like aftertaste. It is a nice drinkable beer but can be a nice sipping beer for the summertime.
Here is a description from their website (www.beercamp.sierranevada.com):
SWEET SUNNY SOUTH
Southern Table Beer
The south holds strong to its traditional flavors—tea, honey-sweet peaches and corn grits—so we looked at those culinary cues for this southern-inspired table beer. With a golden grainy malt body and complex tangy finish from the fruit, tea and herbs, Sweet Sunny South is perfect for sultry summer sipping.

Closing, I missed Beer Camp last year. They skipped a year. I do not know the reason. Does it really matter? Nope, it just made it pretty exciting this year. This year was higher than the last one i price. Table Beer is not a Saison or Farmhouse Ale. It can be called a Table Wine. This beer style is a fruit base beer. It is a beer that has alcohol 1% to 2%. This Table Beer is 4.9%. It is a solid beer but not for me.I am not a fan of fruit notes. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
