Sierra Nevada is ready to open their new Berkeley, California space, aka the “Torpedo Room.” The name is derived from the Hop Torpedo, the dry-hopping device that makes the signature beer namesake so great.
The space is small and intimate, designed to offer limited and small batch beers and educational tastings. The room can hold around 45 craft beer drinkers.
“Our brewers develop creative, flavorful beers at an impressive pace,” said Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada’s founder. “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.”
Torpedo Room will have 16 taps for taster flights, and growlers to go. Visitors can also purchase bottles to-go. Trachtenberg Architects, Inc.; Ferrous Studios, Inc., from Richmond, CA.; and Chico-based craftspeople Westgate Hardwoods are designing the new space.
