Sierra Nevada
Ken Grossman learned to homebrew from the father of a close friend. From an early age, he was enamored by the sights and smells of the fermenting jugs of bubbling beer. His first attempts at brewing were rudimentary at best, but began a lifelong passion for the art of fermentation. Grossman began planning a new small-scale brewery based in Chico. He took inspiration from the nearby mountains - the Sierra Nevada mountain range - and launched Sierra Nevada

Zero Gravity Beer
In 2012 we began distributing Zero Gravity Beer for off-premise sales, and two years later we had maxed out the production at the Flatbread Brewpub. Needing more space we found a beautiful location in Burlington’s South End Arts District, and in the spring of 2015, the Pine Street brewery came to be. A 30-barrel brew house, full canning line, tasting room, retail shop and a sun-drenched beer garden make this spot a premier destination for beer travelers and regulars alike. This location also houses our barrel aging program and allows us to make styles that we previously did not have the space to attempt.

von Trapp Brewery
It was more than a decade ago when Johannes von Trapp started thinking about starting a brewery at his family’s lodge in Stowe, Vermont. He had a dream to brew an American version of the tasty lagers he enjoyed so much during trips to the countryside near his ancestral Austrian home. With this dream in mind, Johannes worked to start a brewery at Trapp Family Lodge. It became a reality in the spring of 2010, when von Trapp Brewery officially opened. Our brewery was originally a modest facility located in the lower level of the Lodge’s Deli-Bakery. We currently brew around 50,000 gallons of lager each year, with brews available year-round and seasonally. In 2015 we opened our new 30,000 sq. ft. brewery located on Luce Hill Road, featuring a Rolec Brew House and capable of producing up to 50,000 barrels of beer annually.
