Sierra Nevada A West Coast Adventure

Sierra Nevada: A West Coast Adventure

By: Melissa Hildreth | November 4, 2014 | in: Craft Beer

There are three places in the world I feel at home; in the villages of Bavaria, the streets of Brooklyn and sunny California. So my trip out to visit the infamous Sierra Nevada Brewery this past September was a special one. My entrance to the wonderful world of craft beer started with a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and I knew I needed beer this great regularly. I’ve heard my share of wonderful things about visiting this brewery but nothing, and I mean nothing, could hold a flame to actually seeing it myself. The smell of malt lingering outside the brewery, the side view of their impressive gardens, all just a background on the majestic front entrance to the brewery and brewpub.

It’s known to have a few great music venues in this area as well and a fun overall environment. Throw in the Brooklyn Brewery and how could you go wrong?
