Sierra Nevada Presents! The Celebration Beer Release Party

The start of Celebration season is a festive event. We can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way and we’re here to kick off the party!

This year’s Celebration Beer Release Party will include a complete Celebration IPA & Friends Tap Takeover, a complete Mezzanine Menu Takeover, offering your holiday favorites small-plate style, Charlie Brown’s Christmas Album performed live and Celebration Gifts for all! And it wouldn’t be a holiday party without a little caroling, so we’ll be bringing you a Live Karaoke Band so you can really belt out your holiday cheer. Last but not least, we’ll be having an Ugly Holiday Sweater Contest, winner taking home a Sierra Nevada gift certificate.

It’s Time for Celebration.

Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys

“Mr. Broussard and his Cowboys are fabulous: You start moving in your seat as soon as their rhythmic, rich melodies, both joyous and mournful, flood the theater.”
— New York Times

“Jeffery Broussard has long been respected as one of the greatest accordion players to ever grace our beautiful Creole culture and for that matter the world.”
— Don Cravins, Sr., Mayor of Opelousas, LA (Zydeco Capital of the World)

Across the Atchafalaya Basin — away from the jazz, blues, brass bands, second line processions, and parades of New Orleans — there exists along the bayous, crawfish ponds, and rice fields of the prairie lands of Southwest Louisiana, a uniquely Louisianan cultural area with its own music and dance traditions — that of the French-speaking Louisiana Creole people. Born in Lafayette, Louisiana to Ethel and Delton Broussard, Jeffery is the youngest of eleven children (with five brothers and five sisters). The family lived in Frilot Cove, Louisiana, a rural community northwest of Opelousas, on a farm where his father was a sharecropper. As is the case with many Zydeco musicians, Jeffery’s career started very early in life (at the age of 8) playing drums in his father’s band, the renowned Delton Broussard & The Lawtell Playboys. It’s quite possible that without the struggle and hard times he experienced in life, Jeffery could not sing and play with the emotion and the soul he expresses. His range, seldom seen in Zydeco, includes traditional songs of the old masters, original tunes, single-note and triple-note accordion, and fiddle. Jeffery Broussard is one of the genre’s most dynamic performers.

The Steel Wheels

Hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The Steel Wheels are familiar with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound. In fact, they’ve been drawing on those steadfast traditions for more than a decade. Yet, their name also evokes a sense of forward motion, which is clearly reflected in their latest album, Wild As We Came Here.

The Steel Wheels recorded their album in rural Maine, where producer Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter) owns a recording studio inside a renovated farmhouse from the 18th century. All four band members – Trent Wagler (guitar, banjo), Eric Brubaker (fiddle), Brian Dickel (upright bass) and Jay Lapp (mandolin) – hunkered down for a week and a half to create Wild As We Came Here.

The band’s name is a tip of the hat to steam-powered trains, industrial progress and the buggies of their Mennonite lineage. Their musical style weaves through Americana and bluegrass, folk and old-time music, and the acoustic poetry of the finest singer-songwriters. By incorporating percussion and keyboards into their recording sessions for the first time, Wild As We Came Here adds new textures to their catalog, as themes of discovery and perseverance run throughout the collection.

Carl Broemel (of My Morning Jacket)

Years before Carl Broemel joined My Morning Jacket — the Grammy-nominated, globetrotting rock band featuring his guitar playing, saxophone solos, harmony singing, pedal steel riffs, and songwriting support — he wrote his very first songs in his Indiana bedroom.

From the start, he was a multi-instrumentalist with a singer’s gift for melody. A sideman capable of handling a frontman’s job. As his guitar-playing career blossomed, Broemel continued writing songs of his own, carving out a personal, introspective sound that reached beyond My Morning Jacket’s sonic landscape. With his third solo album, Wished Out, he merges articulate, pensive songwriting — including ruminations about science, love, the passing of time, and the grind of the artistic struggle — with some of the most energetic, rock-inspired songs to date.
