Sierra Nevada Beer Dinner

$65 per person, plus tax and gratuity


Course one:

Duo of fresh west coast oysters with a fuji apple mignonette paired with a potato bacon bisque

Pale Ale

“Our most popular beer, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, is a delightful interpretation of a classic style. It has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character.

Generous quantities of premium Cascade hops give the Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor. “



Course two:

Pumpkin and Sonoma goat cheese tart with toasted pecans and a roasted duck jus

Kellerweis Hefeweizen

“Kellerweis is one of the only American Hefeweizens made using the traditional Bavarian style of open fermentation. This difficult and labor-intensive technique adds uncommon depth and flavor complexity.

The hazy-golden hefeweizen is deeply flavorful, refreshing and perfect for a sunny day.”



Course three:

San Francisco style cioppino with muscles, shrimp, clam and scallops served with a creamy parmesan toast

Harvest Wet Hop Ale

“Created in 1996, Harvest Ale features Cascade and Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley in Eastern Washington. These hops are harvested and shipped as “wet” un-dried hops—the same day they are picked—

to our brewery in Chico where our brewers eagerly wait to get them into the brew kettle while their oils and resins are still at their peak.”



Course four:

Potato wrapped boneless short rib with a cauliflower – havarti puree, crispy onions strings and a braising liquid reduction

Torpedo Extra IPA

“Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale is a big American IPA; bold, assertive and full of flavor and aromas highlighting the complex citrus, pine and herbal character of whole-cone American hops. “



Course five:

Dark chocolate tart with a whipped marshmallow and caramel drizzle


“Creamy, malty, and full-bodied, the Sierra Nevada Stout is satisfyingly rich. Caramel and Black malts give the Stout its deep, dark color and pronounced roasted flavor.”
