Sierra Nevada beer is one of my favorite beers in the world. As such, when visiting Sacramento, CA, I opted to make the unexpectedly long trip to the Sierra Nevada brewer in Chico, CA. I arrived thirsty and looking forward to the delicious taste of their product. I ended up doing a tasting of various beers, some of which I liked more than others. The true enjoyment of the day, however, was being on vacation in California and being to sample beers at my leisure while time seemingly stood still. For that very reason, it was a wonderful vacation memory.
