Top 10 biggest US craft brewers of 2017

3. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co – Chico, CA

Flagship brew: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Founded: 1979

Sierra Nevada is the result of the home brew endeavours of its founder Ken Grossman, who learned to home brew from the father of a close friend in the 1970s.

In 1976, he opened a home brew supply store in California named The Home Brew Shop, before founding the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in 1980.

Most recently, the brewer collaborated with Bavarian state-owned brewery Weihenstephan, founded in 1040, to create a new wheat beer called Braupakt, that will be available from April 2018. The two breweries spent most of 2017 developing the recipe for the collaboration, ultimately deciding on a fruit-forward, hoppy wheat beer, brewed with Hallertauer Tradition, Amarillo and Chinook hops.
