5th Annual

Hop Harvest Festival

Chico, CA



The Hop Harvest Festival, in its fifth year, showcases the best hop-forward brews of the harvest season.

On October 19, 2019, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and the California Craft Brewers Association are hosting the Single, Fresh, Wet & Wild Hop Harvest Festival, a celebration of the beloved ingredient and the adventurous brewers who explore the boundaries of their explosive flavors. During the harvest season, when hops are most powerful, brewers rush them from field to kettle to harness unmatched aroma and flavor. We’ve invited the best breweries from across the U.S. (and beyond) to pour those coveted hop-centric creations.


What is there to do?



We’ve invited more than 50 top breweries from across the country to showcase their unique and innovative hop-forward beers. Check out below for a list of who will be joining us!


Sierra Nevada’s founder Ken Grossman and Research & Development and Raw Materials Manager Tom Nielsen will lead a discussion about the trajectory of hops and innovation within craft brewing. They will be joined by brewer friends to discuss their experiences, the industry, and their unique and highly coveted beers.


We’re excited to welcome Omar, Love & Shane of Amo Amo and Leroy from the North to the Hop Harvest Festival stage!


Food will be available for purchase from the following food trucks and vendors during the festival –

Crispy Eggroll ● Gnarly Deli ● Golden State Smokery ● Indays ● Kinder’s BBQ ● Roots Catering & Restaurant ● Slyderz ● The Black Kettle ● The Lamb and The Wolf ● Truck A Roni

All festival proceeds will support the non-profit California Craft Brewers Association and its ongoing efforts to protect and support the craft brewing industry.

CBE Group Shot

Amo Amo Acoustic

We’re excited to welcome Omar, Love & Shane of Amo Amo to the Hop Harvest Festival stage. 

Amo Amo formed in June 2017 when a group of dear friends got together for an impromptu session in Los Angeles with Jim James (My Morning Jacket). There had been a premonition that the five of them shared a sort of psychic bond that would lead to a revelation in sound. James proved the right ferryman to take them across the creative river to where the revelatory, mystic moment awaited. Five months later, after a month-long recording retreat with Jim in an old house in central California’s countryside, Amo Amo emerged with a collection of songs full of soul and magic. See their acoustic performance at the Hop Harvest Festival at Sierra Nevada!

Leroy From the North

LA based, Americana/rock band, Leroy From the North, could best be described as a velour track suit with a Cowboy hat. influenced by the sounds of 70’s country gold, mixed with a little Detroit steel, Leroy is just a short dune buggy ride away from the nearest YMCA or above ground pool.

Check 'em out!

Food will be availabe for purchase from the following food vendors.
