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.

Big Room

Pale Bock Release Party

A local favorite returns and we’re welcoming it with a bang! We’re throwing a party in the Big Room celebrating Pale Bock, a golden lager whose complex malty backbone is semi-sweet and balanced by a delicate floral European hop profile. Pale Bock will be available exclusively in Chico and a limited surrounding area. Please join us for live music, a tasty food spread and a beer we all hold close to our hearts.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the band goes on at 6:45.

Must be 21 or older.

Big Room

Achilles Wheel

Tickets go on sale February 18th at 10 AM and they’re available at or in person at the gift shop.

The Rock/Roots monster out of Nevada City that is Achilles Wheel once again will bring their high energy brand of rock and Dead inspired jams to the Big Room. This is a band that’s on the move and it’s only a matter of time before they just explode on the national sceen. And, I’m not the only one who feels this way. Here is a review of their show from this years High Sierra Festival.

“I caught the Achilles Wheel set at the Big Meadow. These guys are bound for greatness so make sure to check them out while they still play smaller venues. I give these guys one more year before we see them headlining venues like The Fillmore in San Francisco. Their honest and homespun approach to rock is infectious as noted by the swaying crowds. I can’t get enough of the Wheel!” - Michael Pegram JBO (Jam Bands Online)

If you like to dance and you have plenty of energy, we’ll see you there.
