Be sure to make a reservation so you are not disappointed. We stayed one night at the Oxford Suites just across the freeway from the Brewery. Excellent hotel. Our guide was the... More

The tour is 1 and 1/2 hours long. You need to book a little ahead. We went on the weekend so packaging operations were closed. It makes for a great afternoon and beer tasting at the end.

We like drinking the dark types of Sierra Nevada beer so on a recent trip to Chico Cal. we made sure to take the tour of their manufacturing plant located in south Chico. It was quite an experience with a great culmination! The tour last the better part of an hour and includes all aspects of the beer making process... More

We have spend many afternoons at Serra Nevada brewery. Our favorite go to place for a cold Summerfest on a hot day. The covered patio is a great place for lunch, the outside bar or inside the resturant. You can sample Sierra Nevada beers or go to the" Big Room" for dinner and concert when open. Carlos Reyes was playing... More

Food is blah- decent, overly expensive pub grub! Beer is better than you'll find in stores and is wonderful- especially the taster menus! Music can be good but the guy who books does it all to his personal taste- if it's not yours- tough! Lots of great musicians out there but unless you are willing to let him play with... More

What a unique and beautiful venue. The building is impressively large, housing not only the brewery, but a gift shop, open kitchens, and a restaurant consisting of many open rooms for tasting and eating. In addition, the property includes an outdoor terrace for drinking only, an outdoor stage for concerts, as well as an herb garden used by the restaurant.... More

This Brewery has an excellent tour, more samples than you'd expect, a great restaurant, and a really fun and informative staff. No fee, one of the best brewery tours I've been on! Worth a stop. Don't pass on the restaurant.

The tour here is excellent, the facility is super clean and the restaurant has inside and outside seating with really excellent food. The beer they make of which there is plenty to select from is listed based on IBU (International Bitterness Units) the higher the number the more hoppy your selection.

Sierra Nevada Brewing gives a great tour and tasting for free. Our tour guide was terrific, well informed, and personable. Don't miss it when in Chico.
