Sierra Nevada's gift shop is now open, offering clothing, accessories and gifts, bar supplies like glasses and tap handles and, of course, beer. The shop stocks clothing including T-shirts, sweatshirts, outdoor gear and "custom Sierra Nevada cycling threads," gifts — from "mustards made with our fresh beer, to hop-infused soap and lip balm" — and beer glasses, pub towels and neon signs. It features the entire lineup of Sierra Nevada beers, including specialty beers and limited releases.
The gift shop is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon-6 p.m. Sunday.
Brewhouse tours that end with a beer tasting session are expected to be offered by mid October. In the meantime, the brewery continues to offer sneak-peak hardhat tours. To sign up for one go to http://www.sierranevada.com/brewery/north-carolina/brewery-tour.
