About Us

Turns out, good beer can do a lot of good.

We shook things up in the ’80s, and it helped launch a beer revolution that’s in full force today. We keep pushing boundaries, whether that’s in the brewhouse, with sustainability, or in the great outdoors.

Our Story

Ken Grossman started Sierra Nevada with a hand-built brewhouse and the odds stacked against him. In 1980, that patchwork of pipes, pumps and tanks began making beers that forever changed the course of American craft brewing.

Sustainability

Use our interactive maps to explore how we slash our environmental impact at both breweries, from a next-level “reduce, reuse, recycle” mindset to generating alternative energy onsite.

Take Back Our Trails

We believe freedom is in the great outdoors. But trail maintenance is underfunded
while foot traffic keeps growing, and it’s harming our favorite places to play. If we don’t step up, our trails die out. Join us in action and advocacy to take back our trails.
