Chico, home to the internationally renowned Sierra Nevada Brewery, sits in the picturesque Sacramento Valley bordered by the Cascade and Mendocino Mountains. Surrounding the historic city is a mosaic of original Konkow homelands, Mexican ranchos, gold rush towns, agricultural landscapes, and the Sacramento River, a major water supplier to the Golden State.
