Beer Camp Across America Release Party

Beer Camp Across America 2016 is here! The beer will hit shelves soon and we’re taking it on a cross-country beer festival tour this summer. Before we hit the road, we’re celebrating with the folks who help make our brewery possible—our friends and family in Chico!

You’re invited to celebrate Beer Camp Across America 2016 with a party in the Big Room. Join us for live music and dancing, food and beer for purchase and a toast from our fearless founder, Ken Grossman.

This year’s pack includes six collaboration brews from 31 American craft breweries. Beers include a Southern table beer brewed with sweet peaches, tea and corn grits; a “revolutionary” pale ale brewed with apple cider and rye; a session rye with hops and hibiscus; a Pacific Northwest hop bomb IPA; an imperial brown ale brewed with wild rice, honey, and cocoa nibs; and a robust Stout full of rich malty flavors.

Come raise a glass with us and celebrate this festival tour and one-time-only collaboration pack. Cheers to craft beer!

Achilles Wheel

Achilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World music/Rock and Roll band from Northern California, featuring award winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and more drums than you can shake a stick at. The quality of the band’s songwriting combined with stunning musicianship earned them spots at last year’s California Worldfest, The Strawberry Music festival, The Redwood Mountain Faire, The Redwood Ramble, Dead On The Creek, Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween and a sold out show at Sierra Nevada Big Room in Chico, California last year. The fiery epicenter of Achilles Wheel’s sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, surrounded by Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals. Think Grateful Dead meet the Allman Brothers. This is non-stop high energy rock and roll and yes, the dance floor is open. “Achilles Wheel is currently on their CD release tour, supporting their latest Devil In The Yard CD”
