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

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
