Local Breweries Win National Craft Beer Competition

The craft beer movement is on the rise, and Reno Tahoe is the newest beer destination of the West Coast. Two local breweries from Reno Tahoe, IMBĪB and Brasserie St. James, competed against some of the best craft brewers of the nation and were awarded five medals in the 2016 Best of Craft Beer Awards. They will both receive national exposure through beer magazines, social media and at the largest conference for professional brewers in the world: the Craft Brewers Conference.
