Sierra Nevada is a pioneer in craft beer in the USA for decades. It's main brewery is in Chico, far from places I usually travel. When researching places to stop for a beer, this one came up on the list. It's a beautiful place to...have a beer. Located in Berkeley, it's on a quiet street far from the hustle and bustle of city and ended up being one of the cleanest places I stopped. The decor matches what I'd expect from the brand with their signage and art everywhere. It's a shallow room with the bar taking up the entire back entry wall. On the right are tables and to-go refrigerators, on the left is more tables and an exit to their outdoor patio. The weather seemed perfect for outdoor drinking, cool and sunny. It wasn't too busy on my visit, but I'd imagine it's a popular place. The bartender was attentive. The main draw of coming here is getting to try brewery-only releases on draft. I'd imagine most are only available here outside of the main breweries. Prices are reasonable. I only had time for one beer, but was glad I stopped in; it'd be fun to come again.More

Great place to taste a super wide variety of SN beers! Lots of styles and food to boot. 4th Steer location is great and a nice place to enjoy a drink after shopping!

Sierra Nevada has kept true to its independent craft brew roots and the Torpedo Room is a convenient way to enjoy that in Berkeley. If you can, visit Chico as they have some really good food to go with the brews.

Talk about an understated bit of class. The Sierra Nevada Torpedo room is quaint, totally not pretentious and for a craft beer establishment that is saying something. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. No one looked down their nose at me. The beer selection...was superb. With sizes ranging from 4 oz and up. Which is nice, I got to try a number of beers without trashing myself too hard. And a bunch of reasonably priced takeaways too. There were food trucks just outside, and the ambience of the place was delightful. Try the Otra Vez. First class example of a Gose, which stands up admirably to anything coming out of Leipzig. Deadset, I haven't been to many other places in the Bay area yet, but it will be a tall order to top this joint.More

Our first stop of an afternoon of 3 different tastings in the area. Looked quiet upon entering, we introduced ourselves and said we (4 adults) interested in their beer tasting experience. So the bartender set us up with 4 glasses each, after discussing the variety...of choices, and gave us some lovely cheese & crackers. We commenced to sip and chat, sip and chat....you know the routine! LOL Had a grand time. So much so that at the end of our day, we stopped in for a pint of our favourite from the tasting. Thanks for a fun experience guys 😆More

My wife and I shared the cheese plate and the charcuterie plate that each came with a nice flight of beers. We enjoyed 7 different beers, 3 cheeses, and 6 different meats accompanied by crackers and really good mustard. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable....For a total of $22, it is hard to beat. We highly recommend this place.More

Sierra Nevada Brewing (in Chico CA) has had this tap room open in Berkeley for a while now. The great thing about it is the ever changing selection of beer on tap, and about half of them are not available in stores. The people really...do know their beer (not just Sierra Nevada) and enjoy discussing them. This place is about the beer, so munchies are lite .. Good restaurants are just 200 years north on Fourth St..More

There was a beer on tap for every palate! The only beers I didn't try were the IPAs (there were plenty to choose from but not my taste), and I did not try a beer I didn't like! From nitros to wheats to stouts and...porters. Yum yum yum. Very good beers. I came here with my sister and we were enjoying our beers and the conversation with the bartender. The staff was very friendly! At one point, one of the bartenders even opened an interesting bottle that we had been talking about and gave everyone in the bar free tastes of it. Highly recommend a visit to the Torpedo Room.More
