Describing itself as one of “America’s longest-running craft startups,” Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is now one of the top overall brewing companies in the US, according to data from the Brewing Association. The firm was founded by homebrewers Ken Grossman and Paul Camusi in 1979. Headquartered in Chico, California, the firm produces several craft beers including its flagship, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Additionally, the US brewer has also embarked on several initiatives to reduce its environmental impact. In 2016, its Mills River brewery made history when it became the first production brewery in the US to receive LEED Platinum certification and in 2013 its Chico brewery was certified as a zero-waste facility.
