The brothers of New Clairvaux spent the day at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico last week. We were given the opportunity to tour their impressive brewing facilities and were treated to a beer tasting of the newly released Ovila Saison, the second of the Ovila Abbey Ale series. We also enjoyed a sumptuous meal at their restaurant. We would like to thank our excellent tour guide for the insightful and enjoyable tour she gave. And we are grateful to Ken Grossman and the entire team / staff at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company for taking time out of their busy schedules and making us feel welcome.
