This was a so-so brewery tour. Being a beer geek, I knew I had to get to the Sierra Nevada brewery for a tour. I credit Sierra Nevada for opening up the world of craft brew to me so have some reverence for the brand even though its Pale Ale is no longer my favorite. Living in Colorado will do that to you.
Their bottling facility is huge and on full display. For me this was the highlight of the tour. Seeing a working bottling operation is impressive and at the scale that Sierra Nevada is operating on makes it even that much cooler. My only complaint is that the observation deck it too far removed from the action. Sierra Nevada has a lot of sustainability technology incorporated into their operation but that's a separate tour.
I was hoping for more tasters or to hear about their small batch operations but that was not part of the agenda, oh well. All and all a decent tour but next time I would probably go to the tasting room instead.
