Nevada Craft Brewers Festival

By Shawna Lagnado

Competition is healthy, but camaraderie is what beer is all about. The members of the Nevada Craft Brewers Association have come together to host the first-ever Nevada Craft Brewers Festival from 3 – 7pm on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at Wingfield Park in downtown Reno. The festival will showcase brews from all over the state of Nevada; feature the live music of Jelly Bread; and include a selection of northern Nevada’s famous gourmet food trucks.

The Association is calling on all, near and far, to come out and support Nevada craft brewers. With access to more than 17 breweries from across Nevada, festival attendees will have a unique opportunity to taste local brews all made in Nevada—all in one sitting, and all in one place. The festival is open to beer tasters of all experience levels, from the serious to the casual, catering to pros and amateurs alike. The Association offers only three suggestions: 1) bring your friends, 2) come thirsty and 3) have fun!

Festival admission is $25 when purchased in advanced and $30 at the gate. The cost of admission includes a souvenir tasting glass and unlimited beer for the duration of the event. Admission for designated drivers is $5 and includes complimentary locally made soft drinks. Tickets are available at the following brewery locations: Great Basin Brewing Company – Reno and Sparks, Silver Peak Brewery and Silver Peak on the River, The Brewer’s Cabinet and the Reno Homebrewer. The festival is only open to people aged 21 and over. 

All proceeds from the event benefit the Nevada Craft Brewers Association, an organization focused on promoting the craft beer industry in Nevada and helping the industry give back to the community through educational and charitable causes.
