BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE!

You are cordially invited to Sierra Nevada to celebrate the hop harvest – brewery style!

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has invited over 50 breweries from across the country to join us in our estate hop field at our brewery in Chico, CA, for the 2nd annual Single, Fresh, Wet & Wild Harvest Festival. We plan to post the final list of breweries right here in late September, and whet your appetite with this take on the 2013 festival. Many of the brewers do not sell their beer in Northern California, making this a unique opportunity to sample their offerings. Together we will celebrate hops and the brewers who love them.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the California Craft Brewers Association (CCBA) and their work to support the craft industry
