Eight top Bay Area chefs and two mixologists will be traveling to Chico to participate in Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s Beer Camp. These ten professionals will spend two days brewing a custom beer, which they will eventually serve exclusively at the respected restaurants and bars they represent.

While in Chico brewing the beer, the chefs will cook for a very special beer and food pairing event. The participating chefs and mixologists are David Bazirgan from Dirty Habit, Stephen Call and Laurence Jossel from Nopa, Kevin Diedrich from BDK Restaurant & Bar, Adam Dulye the Brewers Association Executive Chef, Yanni Kehagiaris from Nopa and Liholiho Yacht Club, Angela Pinkerton from Craftsman & Wolves, Jennifer Puccio from The Cavalier, Marlowe and Park Tavern, Todd Shober from Molina and Staffan Terje from Perbacco.

The six course food and beer pairing dinner will take place at 7pm on Thursday, May 7th at the Sierra Nevada Big Room located at 1075 E. 20th St., Chico, CA 95928. Sierra Nevada Founder Ken Grossman and UC Davis’ Dr. Charlie Bamforth will join the intimate dinner as guest speakers.

A limited amount of tickets go on sale today, March 31st. They can be purchased online for $100 per person at www.SierraNevada.com/BigRoom or in the Sierra Nevada Gift Shop.
