This past weekend I snuck into Chico to ride my bike. While there I stopped in at ChicoFest, an event put on by Sierra Nevada at the brewery. It featured cool beers and hot bands. HA. But seriously, it was rad. I’ll post more later when I’m not trying to finish work and go home, but for now:
I’m back! I don’t really have too much more to say. The day was warm, the little field area where it was held (right behind the new parking lot) was cool, it looked like they had just put down sod. Its a great venue for bar-b-ques, etc., hopefully they’ll have moe events there in the summer.
They had a “ChicoFest Ale” that tasted like an intermediate step between Pale Ale and the ESB. I’m guessing it was probably Pale Ale made with their own hops…and I’m sure this could be easily found out, but I’m too lazy to check.
I will say, there was a band from Portland there, March Fourth, they were cool. Check them out here. They are a crazy Marching Band, which, as it turns out, is the perfect thing to listen to while drinking beer and sitting on the grass.
I don’t know when I’m going to chico next, but Al will be there July 4-12, maybe we should have a mini vacation in the hometown. We can go to Bear hole, throw frisbees, and spend $27 on drinks for the week.
