Great brew pub with a large selection of beers on tap. Only a few of Sierra Nevadaís 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 Iíve 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 Iíve heard that itís a great place to work.

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.

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 supposedly...you 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.

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 Carlís 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. Canít get enough of the food. Pizzas are great personal size and are exceptional quality. Burgers are some of the best Iíve had. Though a tad bit pricey its all worth it in the long run.
