#63 From Brew to Hops

If you’ve never toured a brewery, you’re missing an interesting and informative experience. And this brewery produces award-winning beer, some of which is known across the nation. We have a beer connoisseur son in Pennsylvania who insists on a stop at Sierra Nevada each visit.

From beginning to end, the sights, sounds, and fragrances of the beer-making process are quite fascinating and educational. Of course, we’re particularly fond of the end of the process, but it’s all worthwhile.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. was founded in 1980 and is one of America’s first micro-breweries. It is regarded as the standard of quality for American craft brewers and has won numerous awards for its beers.

In addition to its award-winning ales and lagers, the brewery boasts an outstanding taproom & restaurant, as well as a large gift shop wherein you can find a multitude of items bearing the Sierra Nevada label. Caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, glassware, towels, and various other items are available for the Sierra Nevada fans who visit from afar.
