As one of the craft brewing pioneers, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company stays true to the long and proud history of brewing, but tirelessly push the boundaries of conventional wisdom. We’re tinkerers and experimenters, constantly looking for a new spin on traditional techniques. We maintain time-honored, labor-intensive techniques including the use of only whole-cone hops, open fermentation and bottle conditioning, while operating a state-of-the-art, modern brewery. We march toward the future, but our soul stays true to brewing heritage, tradition and the art of making beer.
In the early days, there was no such thing as small-scale brewing equipment. Everything we used was built or repurposed for the brewery. Back then, “reduce, reuse, recycle” wasn’t a catchphrase, but a business model. This hardscrabble ethos and our roots in Northern California built a deeply felt belief toward stewardship and helped solidify our commitment to the environment.“It takes a village to raise a brewery.” At Sierra Nevada, we consider the community surrounding our breweries in both California and North Carolina to be extensions of our family. We could never hope to have the success we have today without the generous support of the communities around us. Sierra Nevada is proud to support various agencies and organizations with the goal of bettering our society from sustainable agriculture, clean water and wild-land protection to bicycle-related activities and events and a myriad of other outlets.
