Big Room
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.

Dinner in the Garden

Our Estate Garden isn’t just home to hops. Last year, we grew more than 31,000 pounds of organic produce right here at our brewery in Chico!

Join us for dinner in the garden to celebrate the backyard bounty. The five-course meal will feature herbs and vegetables from our Estate garden, housemade pasta and local cheeses and local meat raised on our own organic spent grain. Beer pairings will accompany each dish.
Grab a seat, raise a glass, and spend the evening in the garden with us at this memorable food and drink experience!

The Steel Wheels

“Few groups have come as far in such a short period of time as The Steel Wheels…” – NPR’s Mountain Stage

“What sets The Steel Wheels from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia apart from many bands is the combination of their stellar instrumentals, accentuated by the one of a kind lead vocal of [Trent] Wagler, and keenly supported by strong harmonies. Eric Brubaker on fiddle, Jay Lapp on mandolin, and Brian Dickel on bass weave in and out intricately throughout every performance.
Of course, exquisite harmonies remain a strength of the band. By making a social statement in uncertain times, listeners will want to lend their voices too. More than a decade into The Steel Wheels’ career, the simple act of singing together – something that carries them back to their Mennonite heritage – is still incredibly special. Join us for a very special musical evening. Get your tickets early as The Steel Wheels quickly sold out their previous visit.

Sam Bush Band

The legend returns to the Big Room. Three-time Grammy-winner Sam Bush of Bowling Green, Kentucky is an extraordinary mandolin player, an artful songwriter, and a dynamic singer who has been wowing audiences since the early 1970s when he co-founded the pioneering progressive bluegrass band, New Grass Revival. Since then, he’s recorded more than 20 albums, including seven solo releases, been dubbed the King of Telluride in honor of his many sizzling performances at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. In addition, the International Bluegrass Music Association has named him Mandolin Player of the Year four times and the State of Kentucky has declared him the Father of Newgrass. Oh, and he was the National Junior Fiddle Champion three times. “I’ve been pretty lucky to play with almost every one of my heroes,” he says. “I’ve gotten to play with Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, I’ve been to the mountain.” He’s also worked with such stalwarts as Emmylou Harris, Bela Fleck, Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett, and Garth Brooks. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the most influential players of all time. Get your tickets early!
