I don't live in NorCal, so for me to get here I typically fly into Sacramento and then drive to Chico. I have family in Chico, but I would be willing to make the trip even if I did not. Sierra Nevada makes it worthwhile. If you just want to grab some food and wash it down with a pint... More

An awesome place to relax and have a meal with friends during the week or weekends. It also has the added attraction of being an award winning brewery so be sure to sample the wares.

Enjoy a mouth watering steak, or an appetizer while sipping specialty beers off their beer sampler platter. Then take a tour of how they make their famous beers all in one trip. Make sure you call a couple days ahead to find out the tour schedule. It can get a little crowded at the bar area, so be patient or... More

We love to take our out of town friends to Sierra Nevada Brewing. It's fun to tour the brewery and then eat at the restaurant. Their house salad is excellent with candied pecans. I'm not a vegetarian but I love their veggie burger made with lentils. The service is excellent, the prices are reasonable and we're all around pretty proud... More

I am a lover of micro beers, I do not enjoy the weak, tasteless slog that Coors or Budweiser puts out. Therefore I am always happy to see microbreweries open up in our state. Sierra Nevada has been here the longest on a national level and when my friends and I went to the brewery, not only did they have... More

After a day of shopping i stopped by the Brewery for lunch and it was great. I had a juicy hamburger with a very generous side of a wonderful pasta salad. The pasta salad wasn't sweet and mayonaisey, but rather light and flavorful. The waitress was very nice and attentive to our needs without hovering. The resturaunt was busy and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour after failing to tour the Anchor Steam Brewery in San Francisco (available tours too far ahead) and the North Coast Brewery in Fort Bragg (no tours at the time of our visit to Fort Bragg). Our tour guide Chris was excellent being very informative answering all our questions, the icing on the cake being the... More

Happened to be in town for a birthday celebration and since they were all meeting at a location I am not fond of we decided to get to town early and try this place out. It was Saturday and rather busy and we were lucky enough to get in on a tour so we just sat at the bar and... More
