Torpedo Room

Our Hub for Craft Beer in Berkeley

The Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room is a pillar of Berkeley’s vibrant Fourth Street. Our intimate space weaves together craft beer science, flavor, and culture. With 16 rotating taps to choose from, we invite you to settle in for a flight with friends while we walk you through what brought each beer to life, down to the barley kernels. From rare small-batch beers to Thursday cask night and geek-status events, the Torpedo Room is a tasty snapshot of Sierra Nevada innovation. Drop by and sip on our variety.

Slow Clap

This classic spin on a Vienna lager builds flavor like the swell of a rumbling applause, starting first with a complex semi-sweet malt body, then with a hint of spicy and fruity hop aroma, and finally with a crisp and refreshing finish and a perfect balance that is worthy of a standing ovation.

Tumbler

Tumbler features freshly roasted malt straight from the kiln to give it a gracefully smooth malt character perfect for an autumn afternoon.

Oktoberfest

We’re exploring the roots of Germany’s famous Oktoberfest beers. Each year, we partner with a different German brewer to explore a different approach to the style. This year we’re working with Bamberg, Germany’s Mahrs Bräu on a new version of the classic style. This authentic version of the festival beer is deep golden in color with a rich malt complexity, but with a noticeable spicy hop character from the use of the nearly forgotten Record hop varietal.

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.

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.
