Pokey Lafarge and his band bring a focus and energy to the American Roots genre with infectious original material that sits at the crossroads of early jazz, country blues and western swing. With his effortless charisma and distinctive charm, Pokey has crafted a genre all his own. His national credits include multiple plays on NPR. He’s appeared on David Letterman and Prairie Home Companion, and his music was featured on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show said, “ All I can say for certain is nobody sings much like Jimmie Rodgers anymore and nobody crows, rakes, rip, yips buzzes or croons quite like Pokey LaFarge!” Opening the show are the Cactus Blossoms, a duo that’s exploding on the national scene and will soon be headliners in their own right. Come join us for a very special show featuring two national up and comers and yes, the dance floor is open.

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!
