Sierra Nevada is consistently great, its been awhile since my last visit. The service is great, meals served are excellent, I am recommending the "Butternut Soup" with a turkey bacon sandwich, outstanding! Service is prompt and with genuine smiles. Prices are also great for this upscale brewery. A must visit while in Chico.

Having accompanied my partner on a business trip to the small city of Chino I was looking for points of interest to keep myself occupied. Most everything of historic note was closed because it was a Tuesday, but then I realized that this was Sierra Nevada's home base. I felt like I struck gold and quickly signed up or an... More

First toured Sierra Nevada when they were still in two metal buildings - 40/50 years ago. Tour conducted by one of the owners who still wore his rubber boots and we (my wife and I) sampled the product in his tiny office around a metal desk piled with invoices and business mail. Thirty or so years later, SN had relocated... More

Love the ambiance and food. We were famished and tired but the mood and the food gave us our second wind. Must visit. Must see place in Chico. Great beer!

I must admit, I am not a beer connoisseur. A friend and I stopped in after dining somewhere else because they were packed here(!), so we didn't eat here this time. We were told there was an extensive menu of desert beers though. Never had heard of that, so had to try some. The thing about coming here is they... More

Sierra Nevada has a wonderful taproom - gorgeous and upscale, with great food. No reservations (I think) so if it's busy you'll have to wait for a table, but meanwhile, enjoy a beer! And do try to get into a tour of the brewery - so interesting!!! and ends up in the tasting room.

Leroy was unflappable. He knew the answer to every question. Entertaining and engaging, he kept the group focused on the history of beer and how the Sierra Nevada brewery fits into the landscape. I've toured Coors in Golden and Budweiser in Fairfield but they're like a theme-park ride; all show and no substance, compared to this tour. If you're truly... More

If you're in the area, you should make time to check out this awesome Brewery. Sierra Nevada takes pride in their work and it shows in the quality of product. Take time to eat in the restaurant as well. Very great!
