Husband took me to lunch as we were both craving fish and chips. The last time we were here he ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the hamburger. Everything was fabulous. Our lunch arrived, took a couple of bites of the fish and it had a muddy blah taste. It did not taste fresh and the pieces were... More

If you haven't eaten or taken the tour here, its a must. The food is always great, the staff very friendly and professional. The tour, is very informative in the beer making process. I had no idea all little things they do to make great beer !

Love this place. The beer is amazing the tour is fun and the food is really really good. Never had a bad meal here and the staff is always friendly. If it is your first time coming here you have to try the beer sampler. I mean your at a brewery so you have to test out everything to see... More

Not just pub-grub here, this is the real deal. Had Buffalo chicken wings, fettuccine, fish & chips, and belgian brownie. All were exceptional. The beers, of course, are astonishing. Drove 90 miles to visit, well worth it. All of the waitstaff were topnotch.

The menu changes throughout the year, and there is always something new. Everything on the menu is fresh and local! Crowded at times, but the staff and cooks do a great job when you finally get your table. A must go to spot!

We went to Sierra Nevada for my birthday dinner, thinking it was the best choice as we ended up in Chico for the night. We were not allowed to make a reservation, so we put our names on a list and were told it would be about a 30 minute wait. Almost an hour later we were seated. We ordered... More

Sierra Nevada remains high on our list of the best large-scale brewers of great artisan beers, and a visit to the homeship confirmed why. If you're a real brewski, take the Geek Tour and get down and dirty behind the scenes and drink right out of the tap. Even if you don't do a tour, the onsite displays are nice... More

Ok, let's face it. You have had their beers. You can find them anywhere, right? Well, if you really like beer, you know you can find exclusive stuff AT the brewery. No exception here. Interesting single hop and experimental brews. Very easy to do a sampler which is my recommendation. Had a VERY good pulled pork sammy which used beer... More

For Chico residents, this is the go to restaurant when out of town guests come to Chico. The attraction is the beer. It's an attractive setting, but very loud inside. Usually, has long waits. The food choices are limited.

THE place where they brew it. You know it. :) Friendly atmosphere, lots of seating, high ceilings, and beer... lots of it. Freshly brewed right there on-site. I didn't take a tour of the brewing facilities, but I did enjoy dinner and tasting flights. The grilled cheese with peaches was delectable and the variety of interesting beers to try was... More
