Stopped here on the way to Napa and glad we did. The tour was great but even better was the beer tasting at the end. The samples were VERY gracious. The patio was very nice and the pints were flowing fast! Highly recommend it....

I like the brews so much better than the food. We ordered a sampler, and chose an IPA. Depending on the season, different beers are available. You can even get a growler of your favorite, but it must be consumed within a certain time period. The food is nothing to rave about. The bread is very bland. The noise level... More

This was our second visit to the Sierra Nevada brewpub. I recall being thoroughly unimpressed from our first visit and the second wasn't any better. Not a bad experience, I just expected more from the food since I am a big fan of their brews. The outdoor seating is nice, the inside seemed very noisy. The place is kinda touristy... More

We go to Sierra Nevada almost every time we go to Chico. This last time, 4 of us went for an early dinner on a Sunday night, and got seated within the few minutes because we were before the dinner rush. My Wife tried a new beer, the Blizzicane Bock. Very dark, but not as dark or bitter tasting as... More

Had a great time. Great beers. Awesome food and not badly priced. I loved the celebration ale. The atmosphere was very cool with the copper just about everywhere you turn had a very built to last feel.

When visiting Chico , this is a great spot to get together with a few friends. High ceilinged , clubby room -wood paneled with deep cushioned banquette tables galore and the visible great copper caldrons of the brewing room. There are outdoor dining areas too-with heaters for cold weather and misters for the hot summers. Really a pleasant atmosphere and... More

Delicious Delightful Casual or "Dress Up" Dining The Sierra Nevada Brewery Restaurant is a delicious, delightful dining experience in a beautiful atmosphere of bright copper kettles and leaded glass with a classy staff eager to please. It is one of the top restaurants in the small town of Chico but could compete with the best in big cities. Folks come... More

Great place to try beer you can't get anywhere else. Their tour is really fun and interesting. I love the sausage platter there and I don't even like sausage. Theirs is the best I have had though......so good with the beer. Love the outdoor patio in the spring. Hard to get a seat at the bar though.
