This s a great Chico experience. The brewery tour and story is great and incredible beer samples await at the end. The restaurant is also excellent but sometimes a bit of a wait. The big room is the ultimate small intimate venue for great concerts. Oh yeah, the beer is world class.

This is our go-to place for taking out of town guests. We are proud of the community support that Sierra Nevada provides and their 'green' approach to doing business. The food is great, the décor is high-end for a pub and I love to look around people-watching and looking at what new beers have launched. The appetizers are really tasty,... More

From the gift shop to dining in the pub, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is a delightful stop when in Chico. My husband truly enjoys the craft beers. Many flavors you can only purchase at the brewery and are not available on store shelves anywhere else. The brewery tour is amazing!!! I also appreciate Ken Grossman's drive to be "green" as...

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has a very nice pub with good food, but the beer is outstanding. Many of the beers they have available on tap can't be found anywhere else and that makes it even more fun to visit.

Although many of their menu items incorporate beer, expected from this top brewery, they do have other items as well. Very good steak as well as traditional style pizza.

Sierra Nevada beer is found world wide almost, and is opening another plant on the east coast for distribution- anyway, over 16 kinds and flavors for you to try and a delightful restaurant with outdoor seating all summer....just can't be beat...

Their tour is great! No charge, samples of several beers. The brewpub has excellent food and beverage at an easy cost. They also have music venues monthly that bring in well known blues and jazz artists.
