Visited July 2018 between vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC and the trip home to Indiana. The atmosphere is upscale but laid back. It was very crowded due to the holiday weekend and the band that was scheduled to play at 7. We (me, wife, mother-in-law, 2 teenagers) took the heritage tour, which was very nice, and ended in a 8 beer tasting. The beer was awesome, but there were only a handful of taps for small batch stuff. The gift shop was awesome with six packs and singles of almost anything plus other stuff if that's your thing. We ate at the taproom and the food was outstanding. Very good, freshly prepared and served beautifully. Expect portions and prices in line with high end artesian food vs. typically southern portions. The duck fries, chicken wings and pretzels were particularly great. This is really a must see brewery, my words cannot do it justice.

Really nice vibe to the place. It is immense, there is a long drive up to the parking lot to a very large building. Everything within is built to display grandeur and leave visitors in awe of the size of their operation. Having a self guided tour available at all hours was nice. The food was quite good and very reasonably priced. Selection is very nice, mix of tap and available bottles. Would have liked the flight samplers to be a little bit larger.

I don’t get the low rating on this place, unless it is backlash because SN isn’t some small artisanal small-batch organic naturally fermented brewhouse that passes the muster of those who want you to think nobody knows more about beer than they do. You know the type. The vibe is outstanding - even folks I know who don’t drink craft beer love it. Dog friendly, if that’s your thing. The food is outstanding, especially the lamb and sirloin offerings. The beer? It’s freakin’ Sierra Nevada. Yes, they are available in every grocery store in the South but that doesn’t mean the beer sucks. Moreover, there are a ton of options you can’t pick up at the local Harris Teeter which are worth sampling. The only downside is the long waits for food but, damn, 60 minutes passes pretty quick with SN on tap, a band playing in the outdoor amphitheater, and after a game of bocce in the garden. Just go - it is amazing.

This place is incredible. Massive, super nice and clean. Huge and I mean huge outdoor area in the back, a concert venue, bean bags inside and a huge 2nd floor deck. Food is incredible, servers friendly and the beer is SOLID. 4 of us went and everyone was blown away by the size and magnitude of this place. Truly a must visit.
