Come raise a glass to the release of our 2016 Christmas Jam Session Ale!
Brewed for the annual Asheville Christmas Jam, this hop-driven session ale is the perfect beer for this one-of-a-kind musical marvel. In previous years, our friends at Asheville Brewing Company had the pleasure of making this musical brew, but Sierra Nevada was lucky enough to get the call this year, and what an honor it is.
The Golden Gate Half is more than just a 13.1-mile run through San Francisco. Rather, it is a spectacular journey through this stunning City by the Bay. The chance to run across the Golden Gate Bridge is an experience unlike any other, but it is far from the only breathtaking moment you’ll enjoy along the way. Learn more at www.runsf.com

For a decade, O’Donovan was the captivating lead singer of the Boston-based string band Crooked Still. Her first solo album, Fossils, garnered praise from the New York Times and Rolling Stone, while The Guardian deemed O’Donovan the “next Americana celebrity. She was a featured vocalist on “The Goat Rodeo Sessions,” the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile, and has made regular appearances on A Prairie Home Companion. This will be the trio’s only Northern California appearance.
“Aoife O’Donovan’s singing is almost too gorgeous for its own good.” –– Washington Post
