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

We've visited several breweries and this is by far the best. It's entertaining, interesting and educational. Our guide, Chris, was great. Good sense of humor and knows his stuff. You can tell he loves his job. Sierra Nevada is extremely eco-friendly. You can learn about everything they have done to protect the environment. And then at the end of the... More

We decided to make a detour this trip to Chico to see where our go to beer is made. Impressive facility, with thousands of solar panels and fuel cell generators providing much of the power... More

It was a really interesting tour but I think it was above and beyond because of our guide,Mike. He was very dedicated to his job which makes for a very interesting tour. I am not a beer drinker but had fun and even did the tasting (still not liking beer). If in the area you need to take this tour... More
