Overview

There’s a lot going on at Sierra Nevada. If you want to see it all, we’ll pull back the curtains for you. We’ve designed several tours whose durations and content vary, so one of them is bound to fulfill your curiosity—or try them all! Common among them is a dose of history that underscores our role as a craft beer pioneer. Depending on the adventure, you’ll get your hands on our ingredients, peer into brewhouse vessels, stroll beneath fermenters, overlook our packaging facility, and take in our sea of solar panels. If you’re over 21 years old, a guided beer tasting of new and limited release beers, or sampling straight from the fermentation tanks just might be your next adventure. Choose your destiny. We can’t wait to show you around. Our tours fill up quickly! We highly recommend making your reservations online, in advance.

We arrived just before closing. Our waitress was patient and gracious. The only flaw was that she didn't suggest the beer flight; we had to ask for it. My husband's salad was just-picked fresh. Very impressive. The dining room was still immaculate at the end...More

We had many out of town/state guests and this was a great venue for everyone to meet each other. Tour was about two hours and ended with sampling. Afterwards everyone was in a great party mood ready for the weekend of wedding activities.

Hi, I'm sure you could park an RV there as there was loads of parking, undercover and open air as well. It will definately be worthwhile I think.😋
