Although home brewing has become one of the most popular activities for young and middle-aged Americans, few have the drive and delicious beer to turn it into an empire. However, that's just what Sierra Nevada did. Started in 1980 by two friends, Sierra Nevada Beers is now the seventh-largest brewer in the United States with an output of 1.25 million barrels a year. Headquartered in Chico, California, the brewery gets its name from the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains, and several of their bottles depict the scenic landscapes of the area. The company's also a leader in sustainability, earning recognition from the Environmental Protection Agency.
Maybe this talk of Sierra Nevada's success gets you amped to start your own brewing. If not, just indulge in the fruits of their labor. You may find it just as satisfying.
