Very cool spot with a large number of their beers never bottled, a really good burger and good service.

Probably nothing new to add other than I enjoyed our stop here. The place itself is beautiful and they are taking care where they can to do things to lessen the impact on the environment or show that they value the employees. Excellent tour with plenty of samples. Tap room had solid food, great prices and service. Make sure to book a tour a head of time if you can. If not, you can try to squeeze in on one but it isnít guaranteed. Even without the tour it is well worth the stop.

An absolute institution. Great tap list. I remember my first, massive sierra nevada taster at the brewhouse ... amazing. The food here is excellent. Other than the long wait there is not much else I can complain about. Beautiful, classy interior. Absolutely awesome gift shop. I canít stop in Chico without going here.

Large in door and out door eating facilities. Felt like I was at a nice restaurant instead of a brewery. Good selection of their beers on tap. Very enjoyable.

It was a beautiful day so we sat outside. The inside bar and dining area looked nice too. Nineteen of their beers on tap with a fairly wide variety between them, though only one "Belgian" style beer. Whatever, all their beers are solid or great. The service was the perfect blend of normal American style of "bugging-me-every-other-minute-to-ask-if-everything-is-okay" and German "never-approach-your-table-unless-you-are-doing-jumping-jacks-to-get-attention". The food was great. I would go there just for the food. We had some fries, pretzel and beer cheese and a salad. The prices were normal for the area. The gift shop has great prices on glassware, $3 for an imperial pint.

Been here before but am having a great experience right now. I love the selection of unknown SN beers. They do flights of 4 pours for $3. Before I even ordered the waitress brought me a freebie flight pour of their Thursday cask. My two flight paddles arrived promptly and thy still dropped off bread, vinegar, and oil even though I declined to order food. 9 beer samples, bread with a yummy oil and balsamic dip, and out the door for $6. Practically unheard of anymore.

This turned out to be a great place to meet with friends and family. You know what to expect from the beer, because itís frikken Sierra Nevada. The food is incredilbe. I recommend the beer cheese burger. Service is good. Everything is good.

I have lived in Chico for 30 years. This is my favorite place to have a drink with friends or my wife.

Great brewery tour and beers to taste. They have been one of the most consistent breweries since the beginning.

These guys started it all...and theyíve come so far and grown so much (in good ways) over the past few year (canít wait for their east coast Ashville, NC location). I love their growing variety of bars...especially the wet hop styles and the beer camp series. A visit here is a must for any beer geek. Great bar area and fantastic people. I was once told when sitting at the bar here that Sierra changed the draft Pale Ale recipe some from the bottle recipe a numner of years ago...supposedly making the draft slightly less hoppy and more approachable to gain tap space around the country. The point of the story was that...again could only get the original bottle recipe "on draftí at the Chico brewery location. This may have since changed...but itís a great story in any case.
