Sierra Nevada is bringing eight top Bay Area chefs to Chico for a six-course beer dinner in the breweries big room May 7.

The eight chefs along with two Bay Area mixologists will be in Chico for Sierra Nevada Beer Camp where they will design a custom beer to serve at their restaurants, but folks at the brewery decided they can't leave Chico without whipping up a "dream team meal."

Each chef will create a signature dish paired with a Sierra Nevada beer, and the featured ingredients will include fresh produce from Sierra Nevada's estate garden and local beef raised in partnership with the Chico State University Farm. Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman and UC Davis' "Pope of Foam" Dr. Charlie Bamforth will join the intimate dinner as guest speakers. Proceeds will go toward the Torres Shelter in Chico, which provides overnight shelter and evening meals among other services to help men, women and families get back on their feet.

"This is truly an all-star team and dinner, and we're honored to host such a great experience at our brewery," said Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada's founder. "Craft brewers often relate what they do to the creativity of chefs, and this group will no doubt show how well great food and great beer can work together."

A limited number of tickets go on sale March 31. You can purchase yours online here.
