About Rita Hosking
Rita’s style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised with capturing the audience. Honors include winner of the 2008 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, finalist in the 2009 Telluride Music Festival Troubadour Contest, and honors in the International Songwriting Contest and West Coast Songwriters’ Association. “This California girl comes by her mountain music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family’s frontier experience,” (Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com) and Rita’s fans call her “the real deal.” A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.

Sierra Nevada is pleased to partner with 5Point Film in an exclusive debut showing of their inspiring outdoor films featuring the 2018 award winners from the renowned film festival in Carbondale, CO.


These outdoor adventure films will inspire you to get outside and appreciate the world around you in exhilarating new ways. 5Point Films are built on five guiding principles: respect, commitment, humility, purpose and balance. We believe these same principles also form the foundation for individuals who lead lives of adventure and connect all of us who share an elemental passion to explore and expand our boundaries.

Pale Ale for Trails

In 2018, America will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System Act and the creation of our first national scenic trails: The Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. These great trails symbolize outdoor adventure, provide recreational opportunities, and help people live happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the Pacific Crest Trail Association are planning a joint event (10/2/18) to celebrate this major anniversary and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. will proudly be a sponsor of this national milestone.


Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. believes in sustainable enjoyment of our environment as reflected in these organizations and those who have trek the AT & PCT.


Beginning on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22 through Saturday, April 28, Sierra Nevada’s taproom locations in Chico, Mills River, and Berkeley will be donating a portion of proceeds from all Pale Ales served to the National Trails System.


To culminate the Pale Ales for Trails week, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. will be donating 100% of ticket sales from our 5Point Film Festival showings on Saturday, April 28th at our breweries in Mills River, NC and Chico, CA.


So support the trails by coming out for these inspiring films and enjoying a Pale Ale or two!

About Los Lonely Boys
Lots of musicians compare their careers to roller-coaster rides, but Los Lonely Boys have had so many close-your-eyes-and-hang-on moments in the 14 years since they recorded their self-titled debut, they should buy an amusement park.

The story of how the Garza brothers – vocalist/guitarist Henry, bassist/vocalist and drummer/ vocalist Ringo – rode their bluesy “Texican rock” sound from San Angelo, Texas, to worldwide fame is one of rock’s great Cinderella tales. But the story of how they’ve persevered in the face of subsequent challenges is just as compelling.

“There is no rest for those who are chosen to be musicians … We’re all about having a good time, but we also make an effort to write about subjects that matter. Life, death, love, hate, compassion, transgression, light, darkness, truth; they’re what we’ve always been about. We’re not interested in songs about how you look and what kind of car you drive and how much money you have. We want to create music that’s about the love and energy and spirit we all carry. It comes from a bigger source than ourselves.”

About Kyle Hollingsworth Band
Thirty years ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has allowed him unrestricted access to the world of music, and has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres. Those who’ve seen SCI know that they can jerk from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. “In the jam world, where there are no set ways of doing things, we’re not afraid to move in and out of genres,” he says, “and because of that I’ve learned to be creative, not only onstage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to.”

His recent solo release, titled The There’s Now, finds the musician coming in to his own. With solid song material and a slamming new band, Kyle is making his mark in the new, always-evolving music scene. Then There’s Now delivers a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes and seamlessly displays his growth as a musician and as a songwriter.
