A group of us drove up to Chico specifically to take a tour of the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. I'd recommend you make a reservation for one of their 90 minute tours as they are quite popular. We arrived in time to have lunch at their adjacent restaurant and taste a glass or two of their beers with lunch while... More

Excellent tour. It begins with a sample of their pale ale. Then on to see the lay out of the plant. Actually was able to handle the hops...very interesting. Guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. Tours end with a tasting of about 8 different beers. The easiest way to book a tour is online and arrive 15 minutes before the... More

Great sights and sounds and great eats. Love the craftsmanship. Especially love their efforts towards 0 emissions and buying all local ingredients.

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
