Sierra Nevada is a fascinating company and a wonderful corporate citizen of Chico. Their beers are outstanding and they give excellent tours. They have great food in their pub (the patio is beautiful in nice weather). And they have wonderful concerts in their "Big Room". Plan ahead because the concerts usually sell out and expect a wait at the pub... More

A wide variety of good food . A beautiful bar. Try the beer sampler. It lets you explore the wide variety of beers that Sierra Nevada offers. Take time to tour the brewery.

Chico is the birthplace of Sierra Nevada Brewery and has grown into one of its most successful businesses without any formal advertising in the beginning. Their products (beer, food, clothing, gifts) are of utmost quality and consistently so. The brewery itself is beautiful, with the landscaping changing seasonally as does the menu in the taproom restaurant. They are committed to... More

We are from Napa and thoroughly enjoyed our brewery tour today with our daughters and friends (ages 19-25). Our tour guide, Ben, was informative and funny. The tasters were generous and provided us with the wide ranges of types of beers.

I'm visiting from England and staying with some friends in San Jose. I thought I'd make the 8 hour round trip to Chico to do a tour of the Sierra Nevada brewery - the lengths men go to for beer! I went on the 4 hour long beer geek tour ($25) on Friday afternoon. It was great fun, had access... More

We really enjoyed the 90-minute brewery tour! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun. We learned a lot and by far the best brew tour even. KUDOS to Sierra Nevada Brewing Company for being so environmentally conscience and for treating their employees so well. Of course, the highlight was the beer tasting. Also, we attended and evening concert of... More

There are 2 daily "walk up" tours at 11:30am and 2:30pm. Tours at other times require advance reservations. All of the tours are free and last about 1 hour. Of course there are free tastings at the end of the tour - for those of age. Kids get a can of lemonade. The tour is informative and requires a lot... More

We've been on lots of brewery tours but this one was still fun. We learned a lot and liked that it was hands on. Our tour guide was good, it was easy to make a reservation, and the tasting at the end was thorough. Dinner at the restaurant afterward was very good! If you like beer there is really no... More

We lucked out and were able to walk onto a tour. Word to the wise, if you're planning to come to the brewery, call ahead to be a part of a tour. It is a 90 minute free activity that shows their process and there is a lot of beer tasting!
