Sierra Nevada’s ‘Torpedo Room’ Slated for November Opening

Sierra Nevada Brewing is expanding its business operations to include a new on-premise retail location in Berkeley, Calif.

The space, named the “Torpedo Room” after its signature hopping device and the current best-selling IPA in the U.S., is scheduled to open in November. It will feature 16 draft beers that will be served in “taster flights.”

“Our brewers develop creative, flavorful beers at an impressive pace,” Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada’s founder said in a press statement. “They’re usually small batches, and it’s those beers folks will find in the Torpedo Room. We think it’s exciting—using rare offerings to showcase who we are and to talk about the science behind our beers. We really hope visitors take part in the dialogue.”

The Torpedo Room will be able to host roughly 45 craft beer drinkers for “educational tastings” of unique and limited Sierra Nevada beers, as well as occasional craft-centric events dedicated to beer science.
