  • The Beyond the Pale tour was educational and fun! Great, knowledgeable tour guide. Plenty of beer samples on the tour! The back porch and garden area was beautiful and I was impressed by their use of environmental considerations in the brewery operation and the porous parking lot that filters water prior to entering the Broad River. It’s like beer Disneyland! The only bummer was the long wait for a table in the restaurant, so we just drank instead. Get going, you’ll love it!
  • The 45 minute tour at Sierra Nevada brewery was a great experience! The tour guide, Bill, was knowledgeable and friendly. We got to see the entire process of brewing from start to finish, learn about how the facility runs, learn about the amazing efforts to reuse everything along the process (the used mash is used for cattle feed, they recapture CO2 from the fermentation to use to carbonate their own beverages, steam is captured to heat the facility's water, etc), and there is a nice tasting of multiple beers at the end. It is a great value for the price, and the grounds are beautiful. I will definitely return to try out their restaurant and take advantage of the nice outdoor space they have.
  • What a place! Our neighbors recommended we tour here while visiting Asheville and I’m glad we did. About 30 minutes south of Asheville and worth the drive. The brewery tour was informative, interesting, and fun. We learned a lot and developed much appreciation for this organization and their commitment to sustainability. The patio and grounds are beautiful and the brewery itself was impressive. Definitely recommend a tour here. Small plates are served out of the kitchen. Live music venue off the back patio along with a large, organic garden and two bocce ball courts. We arrived around 1:45 on a Thursday and there was still a wait for dining. Our tour started at 3:00. We didn’t expect a wait given the day/time, but they got us a table within 10-15 minutes so it all worked out fine. Point being, get there early! There’s plenty to explore if there isn’t a wait :) Only part that left me wanting more was the food menu. I think adding a larger selection of sandwiches would be excellent!
  • We did the Beyond the Pale tour, and truly enjoyed our experience. We learned a lot about the history of Sierra Nevada, and about the brewing process. It was the perfect amount of time, and the price was very fair for all that is included in the experience. The brewery itself is beautiful, as well as the grounds. We ended up getting food, and everything that we ate was delicious. I highly suggest spending time out in the back garden area as well. They have corn hole and bocce ball, as well as live music on certain days. We will definitely be back!
  • This is an excellent and informative tour. Thanks Amy! You were excellent. I attended with a group from Kenya sponsored by USDA and they indicated that this was the highlight of their immersion experience.
