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.

Upcoming Shows


An Evening with the T Sisters

Big Room

The T Sisters are a vocally-driven contemporary folk band hailing from Oakland, California. The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as by upright bassist Steve Height and mandolinist/guitar player Andrew Allen Fahlander. When performing their lively set of originals and covers—occasionally in arresting a cappella–they captivate audiences with close harmonies, creative arrangements, and sassy performance style. Touching on elements of folk, Americana, gospel, R&B, bluegrass and soul, the T Sisters weave evocative stories with a sound that is at once modern and timeless. As an opening act during their first Big Room visit, Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen more than earned this headlining return by bringing the crowd immediately to the dance floor and keeping them there.


ALO with special guest Mike Love

Big Room

Long acclaimed for their deft musicianship, potent songwriting and on-stage interaction, the members of ALO have played together for more than two decades. A live show is best described as a “little bit of fun, a little bit of pop, a lot of energy and a big dollop of dance-worthy music,” wrote San Diego Magazine. ALO features Steve Adams on bass, Lebo on guitar and pedal steel, Zach Gill on keys and ukulele, and Dave Brogan on drums.

“They can improvise and jam as good as anyone I’ve ever seen,” said Jack Johnson, who produced their 2010 album “Man of the World.” “But they got these songs that really stick in your head, as well.”

Since ALO sold out its last appearance, we suggest you get your tickets early.
