Feather Falls Casino brewpub is first in the country
The Feather Falls Casino Brewery that opened last week is the first tribe-owned casino with a brewery in the U.S. the Casino is located in Oroville, California, about 20 minute drive southeast of Chico.
The $8.5 million expansion includes a 7-bbls new window-encased brewhouse, a state-of-the-art sound system and stage, a sushi and pizza area, including an Italian-style pizza oven; all set off by a semi-circular granite counter. Accenting the counter is a wide band of hammered Canadian pennies.
The brewery will start serving its craft brew in January as well, and only at the restaurant, according to brewmaster Roland Allen, who also brewed for Sierra Nevada and Butte Creek. Seven ales, with names like Maidu Pale Ale and Feather Falls Thunder are planned.
Video gambling monitors will of course be scattered throughout the brewery.
