We met friends here and shared a beer sampler over lunch! Soooo fun! Both the beer and he food were delicious, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I have not taken the brewery tour, but I understand that it is fun!

Every time i come to Chico on business, I stop by this local institution for the different beers they have on draught, which are always fantastic. I like the food as well, but it doesn't always live up to the amazing beer. Still, the beer alone should make a stop here well worth it!

After a long drive from SF airport, we arrived to find that the tours were full. However the staff went out of their way to work us into the next tour. It was a blast! Being a big fan of craft beer, and from 2500 miles away, I was like a kid in a beer candy shop. The tour had... More

This review is not about the resturant. There are plenty of those. But the tour of the brewery is well worth 1 1/2 hours of your time. You do need to sign up for a tour time, and depending on the time of year they can fill up. But if you do not know the history behind SN, or the... More

Food is so so but high priced. They are always busy so there is always a long wait. I think everyone drinks so much beer, they don't notice the food.

We visit the Sierra Nevada Big Room several times a year. They offer outstanding (live) music and food at a very reasonable price. We have been coming to the Big Room for more than 5 years and have never been disappointed with a performance. Since it's a small venue, it usually sells out. We also visit the restaurant several times... More

The history of their brewery and the discussion of how they sustain the energy needed for brewing are most interesting- even for a non-beer drinker!

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
