Sierra Nevada Brewing Co has teamed up with Sagamore Spirit to create a limited edition ale, Sierra Nevada Rye Ale. The beer has been produced using Maryland-grown rye and has been aged for six months in barrels previously used to age Sagamore's rye whiskey.

Each bottle has an abv of 10% and is available from selected off-premise accounts, including Total Wine stores and on-premise channels throughout Maryland, for a limited - albeit unspecified - period.

"We know the magic that happens when our whiskey ages in freshly-charred oak, so we couldn't wait to see what amazingly crafted beer that met our barrels would taste like," said Sagamore president Brian Treacy. ""Our team is always looking to bring the taste of Maryland-style rye whiskey to more people, and thanks to this collaboration with Sierra Nevada, we've found a whole new way to do that."

Last year, Sagamore, which is owned by Plank Industries, added two new expressions - Sagamore Port Finish and Sagamore Double Oak Straight Rye Whiskey - to its rye whiskey portfolio in the US.
