The restaurant is actually pretty fun for a few friends to sit out on the patio and have a few beers. The 14 beer taster is really good to get a full selection of different brews. I suggest going in the winter so you can get the Bigfoot barley wine. While you are there grab a few six packs. One of the servers told me he had a 15 y/o bigfoot that tasted pretty amazing. I wouldb’t say go out of your way but it is a great place to sit on the patio, drink and have a few snacks.

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 they’ve come so far and grown so much (in good ways) over the past few year (can’t 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 supposedly...you could only get the original bottle recipe "on draft’ at the Chico brewery location. This may have since changed...but it’s a great story in any case.

We visited Sierra Nevada in 2006 and were very impressed. The brewery tour was quite good although the guide was not very knowledgeable. We were very positively surprised by the beer selection in the brew pub. First time we had the harvest and anniversary ales. We will never forget this day. Just would not eat the Burger at Carl’s Jr beforehand.

I really need to get back to Sierra Nevada. Its been too long. Didnt take a tour or even poke around the building too much but the restaurant and the patio area are real nice. Had a burger and full sampler as my lunch. They brought out 15ish samples of beer, most of which are not bottled. That was back when they were calling Torpedo an ESB. As always the beers were good and so was the food. Prices were quite good.

One of the best in the country. I may update this after my tour of the US next spring, but the food and beer from here are going to be hard to live up to.

Love this brewery. From the estate grown hops and the Solar array over the parking lot to the insanely heavy use of copper as decoration throughout the building to the patio you can hardly tell exists. Waiters/waitresses are always friendly helpful and quick. They may only have SN on tap but its a ridiculously large selection of their own brews. Brux on tap is amazing. Can’t get enough of the food. Pizzas are great personal size and are exceptional quality. Burgers are some of the best I’ve had. Though a tad bit pricey its all worth it in the long run.

Wow, this place is huge. Parked under the solar array and next to the hop bines. Had lunch here and went on the tour. The tour was awesome, I get bored hearing about the brewing process but seeing the facility and what they are doing with green energy was worth it. 8 free samples at the end. The gift shop was great, merchandise and most the regular beers but they had a one-off “Audition Double IPA” available in a 750ml bottle. The restaurant is great, lots of locally grown vegetables and beef and a ton of beers on tap, including some great draft only selections. Value is pretty great, tour is free and the restaurant is decently priced all around. This place is amazing, to see what Ken has done here is hard to describe, you have to see it for yourself.

Very nice big restaurant with good parking and a nice outside part with views to a hop garden. Samples cost $3 for 4 glasses. Food was decent and service was quick.

Great brew pub with a large selection of beers on tap. Only a few of Sierra Nevada’s offerings are available in stores, but there are always about 15 available in the tap room. The flagship Pale Ale is always good, and the Estate Ale is one of the best I’ve ever had. Even their wheat beers, which I generally do not like, are palatable to me. One thing of note is that employees here have some amazing benefits, and I’ve heard that it’s a great place to work.
