Today we are drinking Sierra Nevada’s Rain Check Spiced Stout, a specialty beer brewed in celebration of the official start of brewing at its new Mills River, NC brewery. Rain Check is the first specialty beer brewed at the new facility and marks the first of many original beers Sierra Nevada says it will create with the tastes of the local western North Carolina community in mind. Rain Check Spiced Stout is the brewery’s answer to the merciless wet weather that plagued and slowed construction of the new site since ground breaking in 2012. Rain Check was inspired by the tropical flavors often found in other favorite foul-weather drinks; fresh ginger, brown sugar, molasses, and tangy lime.
