About the Brand

Sierra Nevada

Ken Grossman learned to homebrew from the father of a close friend from an early age in the 1970s. In the 80s he opened a new small-scale brewery based in Chico taking inspiration from the nearby mountains of the Sierra Nevada range.

Their beers are designed to be as bold, wild and unwavering as the dominating, snow topped granite peaks. Committed to pushing the boundaries of craft beer with respect to tradition and an unbridled passion for innovation, Sierra Nevada beers are inspired by the philosophy that anything is possible.
