Sierra is the first boutique brewery and restaurant in East and Central Africa and is inspired by the experiences of the founder in Thailand, California and Bavaria. After his first experience of drinking a microbrew in Bangkok, he embarked on a journey to build Kenya’s first boutique brewery which took him to California. Here he trained under Bavarian trained brewer masters at the Gordon Biersch brewing company in San Francisco after completing the master brewers program at the University of California. It is this experience that inspired the name Sierra. His journey then took him to Bavaria where he designed the brewery with the help of brewery engineering consultants, Nerb GMBH. Sierra reflects the influences of this journey through San Francisco style, Thai food and Bavarian beer.
What is the Perfect Beer?
Malt, Water, Hops and Yeast.. These are the only ingredients required to brew the perfect beer according to the German Purity Law, the Reinheitsgebot. The law, which originated in Ingolstadt, Bavaria on April 13, 1516 was meant to protect consumers at that time from inferior beer made using ingredients other than Malt, Hops and Water. It was one of the first food laws in the world and is widely used as the benchmark for quality beer. Here at Sierra, we brew all our beers according to the guidelines set by the Reinheitsgebot.
