The Mother Hips

We love good music almost as much as good beer.

Known as one of the premiere venues for Americana and roots music on the West Coast, the Big Room is Sierra Nevada’s beautiful live music and event venue located at our Chico, California brewery. With just 350 seats, the Big Room has gained a reputation for an intimate, small venue setting, and over the years, has hosted recording artists from all over the country. If you haven’t seen a Big Room show, we encourage you to check out this truly unique concert experience.

Upcoming Shows


Celebration IPA Release Party

Big Room

Be it watching the leaves turn or building that first fire, we all have rituals that signal the approach of the holiday season. At the brewery, nothing gets us in the spirit like our favorite annual tradition: the release of our Celebration Fresh Hop IPA. In the 35 years we’ve been brewing Celebration, it’s become one of our most beloved releases. Celebration features the freshest hops of the harvest and is one of the few hop-forward holiday beers on the market. The beer is famous for its bold flavor, signature hop character and intense citrus and pine aromas, as fresh as fallen snow. Join us for an evening of revelry, live music, and food and beer for purchase as we toast the start of Celebration season.


Sierra Hull Trio

Big Room

For lovers of beautiful acoustic music, this show is a must see. “She plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved,” says Bela Fleck, the genre-leaping banjo master who produced her latest album Weighted Mind. “And now her vocals and songwriting have matured to the level of her virtuosity.”

Alison Krauss, who has won more Grammy awards than any female artist in history, says of Hull, “I think she’s endless. I don’t see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare, and I don’t think it stops. Its round.”

Hull came to us as a bluegrass thrush, a teen prodigy. Krauss called her to the Grand Ole Opry stage when Hull was 11-years-old. Two years later, she signed with Rounder Records, and soon became known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist, and a recording artist of high order. She’s made two acclaimed albums. She played the White House, and Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, and she became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music.
