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.

Since her first appearance in the Big Room as a teenager, Sarah has become one of the most sought after acoustic artists performing today. Undercurrent, her latest album accentuates the growth and maturity that Jarosz, now 25, has achieved since graduating from New England Conservatory and moving to New York City. The change in approach garnered Jarosz two Grammy Awards in 2017—Best Folk Album for Undercurrent and Best American Roots Performance for “House Of Mercy.” Undercurrent also picked up the award for 2017 Album of the Year from Folk Alliance International.

Jarosz ended 2016 and began 2017 building on her previous successes in the UK and Ireland, including sold out shows at Union Chapel in London and City Halls in Glasgow. She also continues to make frequent appearances on the new Chris Thile-hosted A Prairie Home Companion. Sarah will tour throughout 2017 supporting Undercurrent, with musicians Jeff Picker on bass and Anthony da Costa on guitars and vocals. Opening the show will be Brother Roy.

Celebration IPA Release Party

Be it watching the leaves turn or building that first fire, we all have rituals that signal a change in the season. At the brewery, we’ve got our own annual tradition: the release of our Celebration Fresh Hop IPA.
In the 36 years we’ve been brewing Celebration, it’s become one of our most beloved releases. Celebration features the freshest hops of the harvest and is one of the few hop-forward holiday beers on the market. The beer is famous for its bold flavor, signature hop character and intense citrus and pine aromas.
Join us for an evening of revelry, live music, and food and beer for purchase as we toast the start of Celebration season.
Must be 21 or older.
