5th Annual

Hop Harvest Festival

Chico, CA


TICKETS ON SALE: 8/15/19, 10am PT


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 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.


Musical act announcement coming soon!


Food will be available for purchase during the festival from a variety of different local food trucks and the Sierra Nevada Taproom.

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