I’ve always been a fan of SN and picked this up before interviewing with the company for a job. As a fan I’ve undoubtedly taken the tour at the mothership in Chico and frequent the Torpedo Room in Berkeley, and this book offers a wealth of information beyond what I learned on the brewery tour. The book is well-laid out and read like part diary / part recollection, though there’s a weird part two-thirds of the way through where Ken’s voice gets a bit… I’ll say it put me ill at ease when he discusses his relationship with a former figurehead of the company, which drags on for several chapters. And then when you get three-quarters of the way through it felt very rushed, like I was trying to be sold on a product and brand I already buy into.

Overall I enjoyed it, particularly the early history of Ken Grossman and the company leading up to some of the 20th St expansions. The first half of the book was fascinating and worth the read alone.

My husband LOVES Sierra Nevada or Chico Water as he likes to call it. He could not get through the book. Donated to SPCA thrift store.

Best book yet regarding craft brewery startup & growth, September 23, 2013

This book is a great read, especially for anyone who owns a brewery or is looking to start one. Sierra Nevada’s success is earned through decades of perseverance and Ken’s recalling of all of the issues is just as informative as it is interesting. Thanks for your candor, Ken!
