Renocraftbeerweek.com will again act as the central hub for activity planning, coordination and communication for Reno Craft Beer Week. Participating businesses are responsible for planning and hosting their own events.
Reno Craft Beer Week will again kickoff with the biggest little home brew competition Backwash on Friday, June 2, and close with the Nevada Craft Brewers Association CollaBREWation Gala in downtown Sparks on Saturday, June 10. The popular Reno Craft Beer Week Brewery Tour is set to return thanks to the new Reno Booze Bus.
This is a celebration of uniquely crafted brews from local breweries. Expect the unexpected! Most of the offerings from our local breweries will only be available at this festival. We’re talking about uncommon beer, in many cases specially crafted for this event. These brews will challenge your taste buds, your ideas of beers, and your sensibilities. Strange Brew will be complimented with live music from local bands and a tasty BBQ too. A truly different kind of brew festival for the beer geek in all of us!
