Sierra Nevada Brewing Co has been on my bucket list for a long time. I have been drinking their beer for 25 years, but never found the chance to visit Chico and check out the brewery. When my second son wanted to check out CSU Chico, I scheduled a tour on a Friday afternoon.

The tour was a lot of fun. You get an introduction while having a taste of pale ale and checking out different types of malts. Afterwards, you go on a tour to check out the hops (get to smell them) and follow the complete process of making beer! In the end, they give you a sample of about eight different beers (varies depending on the time of year). We got to try barreled aged Big Foot. Awesome! The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Afterwards, we went to have dinner at the restaurant. Not sure if they take reservations, but if they do, get them. We had to wait an hour to get seated. The food was good and the atmosphere was laid back, but nice.
