Swamp Zen, Sierra Nevada Big Room, Chico, CA October 15, 2014
Chico, CA's rockin' Swamp Zen band provided the party music for Sierra Nevada Brewery's annual Celebration Ale release party on Oct. 15, 2014 at the Sierra Nevada Big room in Chico. Festive fresh hop holiday fun. Here's how Sierra Nevada describes Celebration Ale: "First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada."
