Beautiful brewery, incredible liquid creations, just ok food

Brewery is mind blowing in size. Beautiful design. Impressive experience to see the process of brewing. We stayed for lunch. Restaurant was extremely busy, so the wait times were longer than expected. The beer is absolutely a master piece. Food, not so much. The hamburger was bland, and the fries... read more

We had a marvelous dining experience last Sunday at the Taproom. It was daunting to see the full parking lot but there were plenty of seats inside and on the patio. The reception was friendly and we were immediately seated. We ordered the fried calamari as starters and wood-fired mozzarella pizza to down with their Torpedo Extra IPA! Of course... More

Had a great time taking a tour and learning about the company. Tour guide Rachel was a font of information about the company and beer as a whole. The tour was perfect... long enough to share the company perspective (Progressive and very eco concious...) yet not boring or preachy. The tasting afterwards was awesome, but such a tease! Then on...

If you`ve never tasted their Wheat Beer your really missing one of America`s finest. Try the fish and chips, you`ll love it along with the great atmosphere. It`s an adventure, go out and have some fun!

It's a wonderful place with lots to look at, brass everywhere, or people watching, it's a fun but sometimes crowed and noisy place.

We like their dark beers and took one of their sampling tours. We took the long tour but do to physical changes would not do so now. Great tour colminating in their sampling room. Great portions with about 10 beers offered for sampling, we did not say no!

I've enjoyed many meals at Sierra Nevada. the food is always fresh, the menu changes often but the best selections remain, they always include vegetarian items, they use local produce and even use local, brewery mash fed beef. I approve of their "green" practices and attitude. Besides, the food is delicious and their wine list is good. Oh yeah, and... More

Food and service was very good. We ate outside to take advantage of the misters. We ate after we took the 90 minute brewery tour. There was a wait before we were seated for dinner.

There are several items that made my visit less than ideal. Overall, food was okay and the menu was varied to satisfy anyone's palette. I did not try their beer. Here are my issues. Visited on a Monday night and the restaurant was not extremely busy, plenty of open tables and appeared to be plenty of staff on hand but... More
