good explanation about the history of Sierra Nevada and the process for making beer. I especially liked that they had alcohol based hand sanitizer for removing the oil from the hops from your hands; so far, it is the only brewery we visited which does that (everywhere else, we had to walk around with sticky, smelly hands ... please don't...

We met a couple of friends for a late lunch, early dinner. Sat outside on the patio; even though it was hot that day, the misters made it comfortable. Love to sit outside; too loud inside. The food is always fresh & delicious and feels healthy. We girls split a Mediterranean pizza and the guys both had fish and chips.... More

We had never been here before so were anxious to finally get to try it for lunch. It was excellent, fresh and very tasty. I had the Thai shrimp and turned out to be a good choice. Our server was very efficient and friendly; the place was bustling inside and out so it is obviously a popular place in Chico.... More

My husband and I did the tour and then had a meal in the restaurant, so I will talk about both. The tour: AMAZING. I like beer, but after a few brewery tours in the UK, they had started to become a bit samey. This one, however, is not the same at all. Our tour guide, Mike, poured us a... More

We visit Chico once a year and always visit this place. The atmosphere is really festive and with all the beer's they offer it can be a lot of fun. The food is very good and maybe better than you would expect. You will not be disappointed.

Staying in Chico tonight for business. The brewery restaurant was recommended to us at hotel check in. The was a 20 min wait for inside tables so we opted for the outside bar. We ordered beer flights and the pretzel appetizer with beer cheese... fabulous! Then ordered the goat cheese salad which was yummy too. Over all great food, great... More

We had been traveling all day and had stopped here for a late lunch. our timing was good as the restaurant was slow. We ordered Beer, sandwiches and burgers. Food was good but not exciting or exceptional. It was closer to typical bar food but a little better. Service was good, not great. I did pick a good beer though.... More

It was busy in the Tap Room (their restaurant) and we had a 20 minute wait for a table for two. We could have had a table outside on their nice patio but it was way too hot at over 100degrees. It is very nice inside – large but not huge with lots of wood. Not pretentious but it was... More

The setting and decor of this restaurant is lovely. They have not spared the copper...... We had lunch here and it was delicious. If you like beer, the beer sampler is great and should be ordered!

What an interesting tour of the brewery to precede or follow a special meal! Everything this place does is excellent, cares about people & their environmental impact too. There is a gorgeous theater there that has carefully selected entertainment, advance reservations & ticket sales suggested. Enjoy the best of Chico! Satisfaction guaranteed by a visitor many times!
