Beer of the Week: Sierra Nevada’s Ruthless Rye IPA

Brennan Haselton,

WASHINGTON – When someone says “rye,” you probably think bread, or whiskey.

But soon you might also be thinking beer, as in Ruthless Rye IPA, a new seasonal offering from California’s Sierra Nevada Brewing Company that has already started showing up on store shelves in the D.C.-area.

Rye in beer is not necessarily new, but not all brewers have had success creating a rye brew that agrees with the palates of beer drinkers.

So does Sierra Nevada succeed where others have failed? Find out now as WTOP’s Brennan Haselton talks with Neighborhood Restaurant Group beer director Greg Engert in the latest edition of WTOP’s Beer of the Week.
