Brews Abound During Reno Craft Beer Week

Brews Abound During Reno Craft Beer Week

The first thing to note about Reno Craft Beer Week is the deceiving nature of the name; it’s not actually a week’s worth of activities, it’s a full 9 days! Starting Friday, June 2 and running through Saturday, June 10, local breweries and businesses will be bringing the best of the best craft beers to the masses. With more than 70 events taking place, it will be difficult to choose just one. Our suggestion is to pick one for each day. Here are some ideas on where to start.

Backwash Reno Celebrates Hops and Hopes

Don’t let the name scare you off. There’s a reason that this event is the kick-off and one of the stand-out activities for the week. Backwash celebrates local home brewers and beer enthusiasts by allowing them to enter their own creations (nearly 100 entries this year!) and compete for a chance to have their brew featured at Silver Peak Brewery. It also functions as a fundraiser for Environmental Traveling Companions. Come out to enjoy some locally-brewed creations and help support a great cause! The event takes place Friday, June 2 at Bundox Bocce.

Beards Encouraged

What could be better than beer and BBQ? Get you grub on and toss a few back at Revision & Beards.  Making its debut will be a collaboration beer brewed with Revision & Good Hop out of Oakland. You won’t want to miss this 100% Mosaic DIPA! The man behind the grill with be Rob from Beards, Beers and BBQ. He will be whipping up his famous Rob’s Revision Beer Brats and Double IPA barbecue sauce. Oh, and don’t forget the all-you-can-drink beer special! Bring your appetite to this one-of-a-kind bash. Be a part of the fun on Saturday, June 3 at Pignic Pub & Patio.

The Last Hurrah

Finish the week off right with a proper farewell to the beer-filled festivities with, you guessed it, more beer! The 2nd Annual CollaBREWation Festival will give you a chance to sample some fine beers from local Nevada Breweries. Specials will include one-of-a-kind creations in collaboration with their region friends. Expand your taste buds while enjoying live music and food options from food trucks as well as the host of the event, Great Basin Brewery. The party will take place on Saturday, June 10 at the Great Basin Brewery in Sparks.

But Wait, There’s More…

You don’t have to be a beer connoisseur to enjoy the week’s events. In fact, this is a great time to discover what kind of “beer person” you are with nights dedicated to different styles of beer, including barley wines and sours. It’s also a great opportunity to expand your palette. “Tap Takeovers” will be abundant and give patrons the chance to try a variety of popular west coast breweries, including Bear Republic, West Coast Tap and Firestone Walker. Add some food to the mix by checking out one of the food pairing events. From cheese plates to gourmet cupcakes, we like to think that every beer has a complementing sidekick.
