We set out with a simple goal; to brew the beers we wanted to drink. We started small, with a homebrew shop, a love of American hops and plenty of passion. In the process, we changed the beer world forever. Decades later, we’re still at it, and the passion burns brighter than ever. Sierra Nevada is one of the oldest and well known craft breweries in the United States. Founded in 1979 by a pair of Californian home brewers, Sierra Nevada has become a pioneer of the US craft beer industry and its world famous pale ale, which is the 2nd most well known craft beer in the US.
