Microbrew Festival

Soroptimist International of Bidwell Rancho’s Microbrew Fest
Given the general uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have decided the most responsible decision we can currently make is to postpone our June 6th Microbrew Fest.  The safety and well being of all participants is always our primary concern, and it is especially important during this challenging time.
We remain excited to celebrate our 25th Microbrew Festival with you on
a later date. If you already have purchased a ticket you have 3 options!
1. Get a full Refund
2. Hold on to your ticket until the next Microbrew Fest
3. Make this a donation towards our mission, to provide women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.

Please email us with any questions you might have:


Micro Brew Festival

is the oldest and largest beer event in Chico!

Check out the video from the 24rd annual Microbrew Fest.

Beer is essential, but the Micro Brew Festival is about more than just beer. It is our primary fundraiser that requires the support of local sponsors and people like you!

The Micro Brew Festival presents many different breweries offering a wide range of beers, ciders, and honey wine that have an appeal for all levels of beer drinkers. Participants also have a unique opportunity to taste and learn more about making home brewed beers.

The majority of the proceeds from the Micro Brew Festival are put back into the community to benefit women and girls through Soroptimist sponsored programs.

Tickets are $50 and includes:

  • Unlimited beer tasting
  • A commemorative logo tasting glass
  • A custom tasting brochure
  • Raffle
  • Samples of fine foods from local eateries
  • Live music and fun!
Thank you for your support
