One of the first, certainly the largest, and arguably one of the best craft breweries in the country. If you like beer and you are going to be in Chico this is a must-do. They have a variety of tours, but if you are in town on a Friday do one of the Beer Geek tours - small groups, lot... More

Noise as you might expect in a brew pub. Excellent selection of beer in addition to normal line. Food better than expected. A great stop.

This is a great place to go after you take the wonderful brewery tour next door. I ordered the wings , Charcuterie Platter but I was most impressed by the Beer Pretzel. The Pretzel was made with Brewers yeast.This is the best pretzel that I have tasted west of Philadelphia. The Beer Cheese sauce was tasty and they serve the... More

While in Chico for the night, we decided to try the Taproom at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company for dinner. When we walked up we were expecting a long wait because there were several groups of people waiting outside, but it wasn't very long of a wait. I'm not much of a beer drinker, so I cannot really comment on... More

Not only do they make my favorite beer that being torpedo but the tour they offer is top notch. Make sure you carve out about 4 hours for the tour and restaurant. Bring a dd or get a cab so you can really enjoy yourself because nothing bad can be said about their beer. It's simply the best I've ever... More

As for the beer, excellent. The owners are good people, they help the community in many ways and have... More

Many new brews always coming out. A lot of people, including visitors from Europe didn;t like their beers due to the lingering bitter aftertaste! The Brewpub is a decent place to take out-of-towners to eat, but a bit over priced and very noisy due to the one giant room construction. The very best thing about Sierra Nevada is The Big... More
