There’s a lot going on at Sierra Nevada. If you want to see it all, we’ll pull back the curtains for you. We’ve designed several tours whose durations and content vary, so one of them is bound to fulfill your curiosity—or try them all! Common among them is a dose of history that underscores our role as a craft beer pioneer. Depending on the adventure, you’ll get your hands on our ingredients, peer into brewhouse vessels, stroll beneath fermenters, overlook our packaging facility, and take in our sea of solar panels. If you’re over 21 years old, a guided beer tasting of new and limited release beers, or sampling straight from the fermentation tanks just might be your next adventure. Choose your destiny. We can’t wait to show you around. Our tours fill up quickly! We highly recommend making your reservations online, in advance.

I found the range of boutique beers fascinating. The ambience at the restaurant with the brewing viewable through the glass windows made it just am awesome dining experience.

Order of fries came out cold-ish. The food was lackluster despite the price. I advise getting hammered on beer before partaking in the restaurant! Service was good!

The Sierra Nevada Brewery offers several types of tours (see their website). The basic ones tell you about beer-making, but if you already know about that then I strongly recommend their Beer Geek tour, which is essentially a behind-the-scenes look at how a brewery operates....More
