CHICO, Calif. - The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has announced they will be closing all guest experiences starting Sunday, March 15 through March 22 due to coronavirus concerns.
In a statement shared on their website and throughout their social media, the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company based in Chico will be closing all guest experiences in both their breweries and their Berkeley Torpedo Taproom.
In their statement, they specify the "Chico and Mills River taprooms, tours and gift shops, and the Berkeley Torpedo Room" will all be closed during this time.
They say that during this shutdown they will be "temporarily reconfiguring the restaurants and gift stores to allow for more space between tables/displays to promote greater 'social distancing', cleaning and sanitizing all equipment and surfaces, and providing special training to employees on additional best practices where appropriate."
