My wife and I, drove 3 hrs across the Sierra Nevadas from Lake Tahoe on my honeymoon to visit the brewery/habe lunch last week. Beautiful weather, and scenery en route were a plus. The minute you approach the property it's obvious the amount of forethought and care that goes into everything involving the business. A small hop yard greets the visitor as they approach followed by a parking lot with a terraced canopy of solar panels that were pleasing to both my green and aesthetic sensibilities. The patio was at once cozy and spacious. We chose to dine inside and were seated immediately during the lunch rush. The decor is wood and copper. Huge gorgeous bar with Sierra Nevada's logo and nature scenes similar to those depicted on the bottle labels highlighted the huge behind bar mirrors. The bar linied the left side of the room and was divided by a half wall. copper exhaust/ducts that match the brew kettles run the ceiling and compliment the wood fixtures that help round out the high country lodge decor. Very classy and well appointed place. Our waiter was incredibly attentive and offered us several samples of their more unfamiliar styles: the brown saison and the southern hemisphere ale being our favorites, both were extremely delicious and warranted refills. The food matched the decor and service in top notch quality. I'll qualify this by saying that my experience with fish tacos is not what a Californian's would be, but regardless, they were amazing and by far the best I've ever had. We also had an Employee's favorite pizza which was also tremendous. We took the short, obligatory afternoon brewery tour, stopped off for some souv's in the giftshop, went back to the beer garden for a pint of brown saison and 1/2 pint of Bigfoot before leaving Chico. I highly recommend that whether you find yourself in the Bay area, Sacramento or Tahoe, make the trek to Sierra Nevada. It will not disappoint.
