Beyond The Pale Tour

Ken Grossman couldn’t have known that his early fascination with taking apart household appliances would eventually lead to welding together Sierra Nevada’s first malt mill and customizing its bottling equipment. Ken’s determination to brew the kind of beer he liked to drink, and to be his own boss, led to the rise of one of America’s best-loved craft breweries — and one of the world’s most iconic beers: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.


On this tour, we will tell the story of Ken’s youthful adventures and the evolution of craft beer; dive into the brewing process and ingredients; explore extensively throughout the original Sierra Nevada facility; and immerse you in the rare sights of one of the nation’s top craft brewers.


We will finish the experience with a ride around the facility on the storied, but rarely seen, Time Machine Beer Bike and, of course, a tasting of our award-winning brews.
