Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Ken Grossman learned to homebrew from the father of a close friend. From an early age, he was enamored by the sights and smells of the fermenting jugs of bubbling beer. His first attempts at brewing were rudimentary at best, but began lifelong passion for the art of fermentation. He took inspiration from the nearby mountains -the Sierra Nevada mountain range- and launched Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
