Of course Sierra Nevada's Tap Room is busy and very loud with table talk and noise from the bar area but its so beautiful in that great room. The food and service are excellent with moderate prices for the quality and quantity of portions served. Then of course there's the beers and ales. We are so lucky to have Sierra... More

Had an appetizer that was a meal. Three large sausages, sauerkraut, and caramelized onions. Added mustard and it was wonderful! Spouse had fish and chips that he was very happy with. The beers were superb as were the selection possibilities. Spouse had a beer flight where he was able to pick the beers he wanted to try. They then put... More

The beer sampler was good and a great price. Food was tasty and economical. Very popular; plan to wait for a table if you go at key times.

Sierra Nevada Brew Pub is one of Chico's (not hidden) gems. Great food, great staff and, perhaps most important, wonderful working conditions for all employees (at least so many of the employees tell me.) Locally sourced food where possible. Major problem is it is so popular there is often a long wait but they accommodate with a good paging system... More

I was impressed at how diverse the menu was for being so small. There are unique items and the quality was excellent. I could not drink due to work but there is a lot more variety then what you see on store shelves. Highly recommend visiting and try to either beat the rush or follow it! It gets very busy.

If you like brewhouse restaurants, but want something truly upscale? Go to Sierra Nevada's Taproom restaurant! Not only do they have top quality food, the majority of ingredients are grown locally. That includes their own herd of beef that gets fed the grains from the brewing process. Try a sampler of Sierra Nevada's current offerings, some of which you may... More

This was our third visit. Each time we have found the patrons in a festive happy mood; the service personal, friendly, and prompt; the cavernous taproom (accented perfectly with shiny copper conduits) open and refreshingly sunlit and airy; and the food consistently wonderful. We (our son joined us this time) began with a bounteous and nicely plated Malted Sweet &... More
