Bad news for Sierra Nevada beer lovers…

The company has voluntarily recalled eight different beers across 36 states as a response to concerns that some bottles may have a flaw leading to glass breaking off and actually falling into the beer.

According to the company, no injuries have been reported, but the proper measures are being taken to ensure it stays that way.

Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale 12-ounce bottles produced from December 5, 2016, to January 8, 2017, are the ones in question, in addition to seven other beers the company produced over a broader period of time.

The seven other beers, produced between December 5, 2016, to January 13, 2017, are:

  • Torpedo Extra IPA
  • Tropical Torpedo
  • Sidecar Orange Pale Ale
  • Beer Camp Golden IPA
  • Otra Vez
  • Nooner
  • Hop Hunter IPA

It is important to note that beer produced at Sierra Nevada’s Chico, California brewery is not part of the recall, only beers produced by its Mills River, North Carolina location.
