The brew house food is always good, the beer is great and the free tour is definitely worth taking. The tour guide we had was very entertaining and all the beer tasting at the end lets you try things that aren't available or you never would have paid for.

Ken Grossman's brewery and restaurant is more than a successful business. It fosters creativity and evolution for higher consciousness. Plan to look at its multifaceted demonstration of beauty, tastes, environmental consciousness, education and community building in celebrations and entertainment. One has to participate over many visits to appreciate Ken's actualization of his dreams. Read his book "Beyond the Pale" and... More

If you enjoy a friendly atmosphere in a more upscale dinner/beer-bar setting, you will like this place. They have very good food and a very nice beer menu including a beer sampler platter. As expected, it is busy, so take that into consideration. If you want a quiet sit down for dinner, a nice lunch or a happy crowd for... More

Always a favorite. But if you go any day around usual meal times, be ready to wait. They don't take reservations. Good news is wait times aren't too long unless you go at the more popular times.

This was my second time taking the brewery tour and it was just as interesting as the first. The tour guides are friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. Sierra Nevada is an exemplary company which also makes great beer! Love the tasting at the end with the specially shaped mini-glasses to match the beers.

Nice dinner, good service, great beer. Only complaint I had was the wait time which means this is a popular place. The first time we got there at 8pm on a Friday night and it was over an hour wait for 5 people. We went there the following Saturday night at 4:15pm and there was still a 15 minute wait.

We have taken several brewery tours and this was by far one of the best. It is very informative and a lot of fun. You get to sample 7 different beers at the end. All this and it's free.

I am a loyal Pale Ale drinker from NJ. This was a must see on our cross country trip. The tour was very informative and explained the brewing process in general and their's in particular. You get to walk around the actual brewery and taste the wort. The hops area was interesting too. They even let you rub the hops... More

Kind of yuppy for my taste. Menu was over my head. Had prawns and they were ok. Family enjoyed the food and liked the sampler platter.
