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.

Ferris  (1457) Burnaby, British Columbia | January 28, 2016
Large tap room and restaurant. Packed but the line moves quickly and also very loud. Staff is efficient and always trying to upswell food, but not beer. Beer list is great with some old bottles as well. Flight is cheap and 2oz each, so great for tickers. A good stop, but not sure if it is a destination.

Finally made it. A solid place for rating #1100. A true icon in US and California beer. Easy to spot from the street and perhaps maybe doesn’t initially appear to be quite as big as you might expect. Beautiful facade with the classic Sierra Nevada Bewing Company name and font on the wall.

Inside, the place is incredibly well done and decorated. There is a small waiting room for tours and gift shop where you can also buy bottles. Just really quite immaculate. Windows peak into brewing areas provide a nice view of the fermentation tanks and copper brewing equipment.

They also have a really ornate and beautiful taproom and restaurant a couple doors down form the lobby/gift shop area. About 20 draft offerings and they do flights, halves, and full pours, all of which are very cheap. The only real downgrade here was the service from our bartender wasn’t terribly friendly. Our tour guide more than made up for it.

I don’t normally do brewery tours, but they offer a Sustainability Tour here. I found this tour to be incredibly interesting and worthwhile and really made me respect the brewery and Ken Grossman a lot more for his efforts to reduce the impact of his brewery. You also get a great chance to see a lot of the brewery grounds and some things like their hop and fruit/vegetable gardens. It’s free, too.

Probably an aspect of nostalgia for me at play in my score, but this place is really special and unique. A real must visit and I only wish it was closer.

Braudog  (899) Yorktown, Virginia | April 8, 2008| Updated April 9, 2008
April 2008 - I drove 75 minutes to get here, and I must say, I was a bit let down. What I discovered is a massive compound of commercialism, complete with a gaudy overpriced gift shop. The tour is a self-guided walk above their impressive brewhouse, complete with gigantic Euro-style copper kettles in an open-air sudhaus. The connected restaurant is just another wanna-be-upscale restaurant/pub that happens to serve the entire collection of SN regulars, plus a couple you might not find elsewhere (although all the beers were quite centerist and unadventurous). The food was good enough, if unoriginal. The service in the restaurant was indifferent at best, as if they could care less. All the staff seemed more interested in flirting amongst themselves than with keeping my beer glass full. Worth a stop if you’re in the neighborhood, but I’d put this in my files along with other ’original’ craft breweries that are now nothing short of Busch Juniors (see Pyramid, Portland, Big Rock, et al) and won’t go out of my way again.

Beer heaven. Good food and even better beers. Shop full of merchandise and beers to go. They happen to have Cask Thursday and I had a pint of cask conditioned Southern Hemisphere Harvest. I like this place.

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 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.

Downer: lack of cask ale - at least in my experience. Upper: great selection of ale and the food is first rate.

Visited here in September of ’05 and actually went out of my way on the way up to Redding to get here - worth the trip. Had an excellent lunch of pizza and about a half dozen or so half pints of on tap brews only available at the brewery. Our waiter turned out to be our tour guide - very friendly and knowledgeable enough - and would admit if he did not know an answer to a question - refreshing! Tours are only given once a day though - 2:00 I believe. The decor of the restaurant was nice, very airy and clean. Patio seating was available and there is a tasting bar available if you are just interested in drinking. The locals apear to love the place - as I would if I live din Chico. A must visit if anywhere near the area

Foods one of their lower scores? That I don’t get. The regular menu items are vast and tasty, and there’s been a few specials on previous visits that blew my mind. Decent prices, tasters. Always have draft only stuff going in addition to the ever expanding bottled selection. It used to be a so so brewer for me, but what they’ve done in the last few years really shows. Nice atmosphere, and have yet to have bad or slow service.
