The Beer Issue

CN&R celebrates the local beer scene

It’s Beer Week, everybody! The Chico News & Review is as pumped as you are to get out and experience 2017’s selection of beer-related activities, and to kick it all off, we’ve put together our annual Beer Issue. This year we have stories on the arrival of Secret Trail Brewing Co.—the first brewery/taproom to open in Chico since Sierra Nevada—plus a look at the bikes-and-beers phenomenon as well as the trend of small craft breweries being bought up by the big beer conglomerates.

For info on all of the events happening during Chico Beer Week 2017, pick up a copy of this week’s paper or visit the Chico Beer Week website at

It’s going to be a good week!
