    Their free brewery tour is the best ever! You get to learn a lot about their history, see the production line, sample lot of beers and even get a free souvenir.

    The brewery recycled almost 97% of its total waste in 2006; it reuses CO2 produced during fermentation & rewards employees who bike to work. Take a growler to go, it's more eco friendly than bottles!

    Get the Beer Sampler to try all of the Latest & Greatest Sierra Beers on Tap. One of the Best Breweries in California, Incredible Food and Amazing Beers, it's a must stop if you are in the area.

    They have a tour inside the brewery where you learn so much on what comes in the beer, what they use to make the beer. Its a great place to get educated on your beers.

    The "Hop Torpedo," a stainless steel device packed with whole, cone hops, is the brewery's unique way of adding hop aroma to beer with no additional bitterness. Read more

    The tour was a really neat look at the inner workings. The beer tasting was good, but trying all the audition beers in the taproom was better!

    Each Sierra Nevada keg is marked with a green and orange stripe. These stripes match Ken Grossman's favorite hiking socks.

    The aromas from the hops outside remind me of home. Chico is home of course and San Francisco doesn't smell the same.

    Don't get your heart set on the tri-tip sandwich. It may be on the menu but it's 86'd...

    Service is usually awesome but night was very disappointing. We were places next to a bunch of rowdy teenagers, was not offered bread, and our waiter seemed like he didn't want to be there. :(
