    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
