The missus and I are both big SN fans so we were pretty excited to see the place. The sustainability tour was free and focuses mainly on how SN reduces / repurposes it's waste, reduces emissions, and grows it's own produce. It also includes a beer out in the veggie / hop garden which is a great touch. Our tour... More

We go camping in Lassen every year and stop on the way for lunch and beer. It's a great place to stop. Comfortable. Always has a good crowd. Food is very good and I love trying the beers only available a the brewery. ThE outdoor patio is especially nice. Only gave the 4 star ranking because they won't fill my... More

I'm not even a beer drinker and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It is long but you learn a lot about the company history (interesting), sustainability efforts (impressive) and beer making (nothing like the hops cooler on a summer day). After the 1+ hour tour, you visit a tasting room where we tried 8 or so beers. The brewery likes... More

We stopped for lunch and beer on a Friday. We arrived around 11:30 and had to wait about 15-20 minutes. The bar is very ornate and they offer a sampler of four 2 oz sampler for $3. The Beer Camp Across America series offers some additional tasty selections. I had the Tikka Chicken salad which was fresh and delicious. The... More

The Brewery food is not as good as it used to be. But it is still a novel place to eat and has a fun atmosphere. Go early to avoid long waits.

I was pleasantly surprised with a breweries food and service. I have the chicken sandwich which came out perfectly cooked and extremely tasty. I highly recommend the half of wise in as it was very similar to Bavarian beer. The next time I'm in Chico I will definitely stop here again!

Went on the sustainability tour it was great seeing how they are so energy efficient and the owner really cares about the environment! Tour is less than 1.5 hours. You walk some and ride around the estate on a golf cart! Awesome touch was a free water bottle and the tour guide Leroy brought water on the tour to keep... More

Sierra Nevada Brewery is a nice place for lunch or dinner. The Restaurant can get very busy, so you may have a slight wait. I would recommend getting the Brew "Sampler" and find a favorite to have with your meal. The service is great, and the food is very good. You will enjoy yourself at this place.
