Brian & Ken

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Brian: My father is the smartest man I’ve ever met. He’s very, very driven. Huge amounts of foresight. Passionate guy. He worked a million hours to get his brewery going, but he was very good about making time for us. I remember climbing on grain sacks, and there are pictures of me in case boxes. My dad would put me on the packaging line and push me down. The conveyer system was my slide. I learnt how to ride my bicycle at the brewery. I’ve got millions of memories of the place.


Pallet was a premium print magazine for people with curious minds and adventurous palates. Or put more simply, those who like to think and drink.

Pallet used beer, subtly, as a conduit to the things we love: interesting conversation, great writing, science, history, photography, music and more. Coupled with eclectic content that stretches beyond beer, Pallet was for anyone who is intellectually curious.

Printed on deluxe stock, perfect bound, and with a minimum of 144 pages, Pallet was made to be saved and savoured. It was created by a small army of contributors, stationed all over the world, and executive editor Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Brewery.

All four back issues of Pallet are now only available digitally, via our friends at Readbug.
