      While craft beers are now a common part of the American drinking landscape, they were practically unheard of when the Sierra Nevada brewery opened its doors in 1980. The company has grown into one of the largest craft beer companies in the U.S. A free tour gives a history of the brewery, a chance to both see and touch the ingredients, and it ends with several samples of the end product.

      If you go:
      The tour is free, but reservations are recommended. There is also a restaurant/tap room next door to continue sampling after the tour.
