Torpedo Room

Now Open in Berkeley, CA!

The Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room is the latest addition to Berkeley, California’s vibrant Fourth Street. Our new, intimate space is a hub for craft beer science, flavor and culture. Some of the Torpedo Room’s 16 taps will feature rare, small-batch draught Sierra Nevada beers you won’t find anywhere else. Grab a flight and we’ll walk you through what brought each beer to life, down to the barley kernels. We’ll foster more common drink geekery through special events, so keep an eye on the calendar.

Drop by the Torpedo Room and sip in some brewing history, modern innovation and, of course, good fun.

Currently On Tap

  • Breakfast at Chico’s

    Glimpses of milk chocolate and coffee also emerge for a decidedly robust, creamy brew for when the sun’s rising or making way for evening antics.

    Earl’s IPA

    Tea leaves long famous overseas bolster this English-style IPA with the rich citrus aroma and flavor of bergamot oranges.

    Kellerweis®

    A hazy wheat ale—untamed, unfiltered and unafraid. With a full, fruity aroma and notes of spicy clove and banana bread, Kellerweis is truly a unique brew.

    Barrel-Aged Ovila Saison

    A 1.5-year hibernation in rye whiskey barrels yielded a more robust version of our Ovila Abbey Saison, yet its cunning display of flavors like fresh apples and cedar spice make it remarkably approachable.

    Vienna Lager

    Vienna lager is our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts.

    Bigfoot® Barleywine-style Ale

    Bigfoot is a beast of a beer, brimming with bold flavors of bittersweet malt and heaps of aggressive whole-cone Pacific Northwest hops.

  • Rain Check Spiced Stout

    Rain Check Spiced Stout is our answer to the merciless wet weather that plagued and slowed the construction of our new brewery in Mills River, NC. This dark, rich, and roasty beer helps us forget the delays—a Rain Check we’ll take anytime.

    Flipside® Red IPA

    Flipside Red IPA is a rebuttal to the mild-mannered beers of summer. Tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors from the use of whole-cone Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops are the perfect notes for this in-between season.

    Beer Camp Double IPA

    This is a true “West-Coast” style double IPA using huge amounts of hops, both in the kettle for flavor, and afterwards in the torpedo to impart a massive hop aroma. The light malt body and dry finish hide the power in this deceptively drinkable hop-bomb.

    Narwhal® Imperial Stout

    Inspired by the mysterious creature that dwells in the deepest Arctic seas, Narwhal Imperial Stout is midnight black and bold—with notes of baker’s cocoa and dark roasted coffee. This massive imperial stout is incredibly complex and explores the darkest depths of malt flavor.

    Hoptimum® Imperial IPA

    Hoptimum is the biggest whole-cone IPA we have ever produced—a whole-cone hurricane of flavor. Aggressively hopped, dry-hopped, AND torpedoed, Hoptimum delivers ultra-intense flavors to hop fanatics everywhere.

    Outside Lands Saison

    Made for the Outside Lands Music Festival, this saison is brewed in the French style. It’s copper colored and extremely dry with layers of complex flavors and aromas including hints of lemon, grass, straw, and spice.

  • Pale Ale

    Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic.

    Torpedo® Extra IPA

    The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma and what kind is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness.

    Ovila Abbey Tripel

    Ovila Abbey Tripel is a deceptively robust golden ale with complex floral hop notes and a traditional Belgian yeast’s fruity, peppery kick.

    Oktoberfest

    Our take on the classic festival beer has a silky malt flavor with an initial sweetness that sets up the interplay of mild toffee-like notes and floral European hops.
