Sierra Nevada’s Taproom is officially open at the brewery in Mills River (100 Sierra Nevada Way). It’s pouring 23 taps of beer, from flagships to rarities, and serving a seasonal menu including small plates, sandwiches and wood-fired pizzas. A 20-barrel brewery inside the restaurant is just coming online as well. Outside seating, a produce garden and a music venue will follow this summer.
Hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday and noon-9 p.m. Sunday. More information will follow next week in Xpress.
