Besides the brewery? University Bar in Chico. Wide selection of SN pilot beers* for CHEAP, it's underground, and the AC will blast a chill into you.

*I especially like the Best Bitter.

So you'll be in Redding?

You're an hour drive north of Chico, just factor that into your drinking adventures.

You'll find a lot of the pilot beers in a lot of the Chico bars and I'm only giving you two that I think you should hit.

Chico Bars:
  • Madison Bear Garden - Order a Jiffy Burger
  • The Graduate Bar - I lived across the street of it for 3 years, it has tons of different beers with lots of SN. Also a great place to watch a sports game

Breweries:
  • Butte Creek Brewing
  • Sierra Nevada (of course)

Other watering holes
  • Riley's,
  • La Salle's,
  • Duffy's,
  • Joe's bar
