Brewer Sierra Nevada to recall beer in South Carolina

Sierra Nevada Brewing has voluntarily recalled some bottled beer in South Carolina and other states due to a glass defect, according to an official press release. 

In total, the brewing company recalled beer in 36 states for fear that the glass in its bottles could chip and fall inside the bottle. 

Though the brewery expects that the defect only affects 1 in every 10,000 bottles, they are voluntarily recalling bottles across the Midwest, as well as the south and east coasts. The bottles are mostly in six-packs of the brewery's more well known offerings. 

Which beers are affected?

According to Sierra Nevada's press release, the following brands in 12 ounce bottles will be taken off shelves:

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

However, the recall does not impact canned or draught beer, as well as variety packs.

Which states are affected by the recall?

Besides South Carolina, Sierra Nevada Brewing is pulling beers from the following states: AL, AR, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI and WV.

Safety first

The beer originates from the Brewery's Mills River location, rather than its Chico central brewery. 

Customers who have bought recalled beer are eligible for full refund, and are are advised to dispose of the beer without drinking it, as pieces of glass may cause dangerous injuries if accidentally ingested.
