The restaurant/taphouse is a very nice room with lots of wood and lots of copper (bartop, taps, even the giant, immaculate air conditioning duct). The waiting area and the area near the bar have a nice view of one of the several brewhouses in the Sierra Nevada complex. The food was good, especially the gorgonzola pasta my wife ordered. I ordered a pizza that was pretty good, but not exceptional. Their beer sampler contained every beer they served on draft, 14 total the night I went (very nice!). The wood-aged Bigfoot was the standout beer, but several of the samples were excellent. Highly recommended. (608 characters)

I mean this is beer heaven right? Where Ken Grossman took the Cascade hop and changed it all? Yep. Great tour. Great tasting. Great relaxed vibe. Food is delicious though maybe a bit overpriced. As Beerfest taught us..."You go, I'm never leaving this place." (258 characters)

The Asheville brewery is a sight to behold. The taproom is beautiful, the beers are really good with several you can't get anywhere else, and the food far exceeded expectations. It's a cathedral of beer, the best I've ever visited. (231 characters)

My wife and I visited the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in Chico on our way back from the Lassen Volcanic National Park. We'd booked a tour ahead of time (a must) and it's probably the best brewery tour we've taken anywhere. Period. It took about 2 hours... going through all the brewing/bottling/canning etc. and they have a pretty damned impressive setup here. They're pretty eco-conscious and showed off some of their solar power setup (they actually sell electricity back to the grid) and best of all... there was a generous tasting at the end of it. After the tour we had a great lunch and a few more beers at the attached brewpub. This place is a must if you're a beer fan and in the area. Definitely recommended. (723 characters)

Overall this is one of the best brew pubs that I have visited. The food is good, and the on tap selection will keep you busy for days. (134 characters)
