When Under The Rose Brewing closed it also meant the demise of Freeze Your Pints Off as it was a UTR property. Fortunately, the owners allowed this popular festival to continue. This year it is being produced by the Nevada Craft Brewers Association and has a whole new location, look and feel.

The fifth annual Freeze Your Pints Off beer festival takes place Saturday, March 23 from 1-5 PM. It is an outdoor beer festival. FYPO will feature local breweries showcasing their strong beers, winter warmers and barrel aged brews. The festival will also include music by a local DJ and local food trucks. Festival Tickets include beer tasting, a meal from a local food truck and commemorative tasting cup.

This year the festival will be held at City Plaza in Downtown Reno (1st & Virginia, the one with the big whale and ‘BELIEVE’).

Participating Breweries include:

  • 10 Torr Distilling and Brewing
  • Alibi Ale Works
  • Brewers Cabinet
  • The Depot Craft Brewery and Distillery
  • The Fox Brewpub
  • Great Basin Brewing Company
  • IMBIB Custom Brews
  • Lead Dog Brewing Co.
  • Pigeon Head Brewery
  • Revision Brewing Company
  • Silver Peak Restaurant and Brewery
  • StoneyHead Brewing Co.

Local food trucks include Espinoza’s, Nomnivore, Still Rollin and Slater’s Ding-a-Wing and entertainment by DJ MoJo JoJo.

Festival Tickets are $45 – pre-sale and include unlimited responsible beer tasting, a meal ticket for a food truck and commemorative tasting cup.  VIP Tickets $65 – pre-sale get you 1 hour earlier entry (12 noon).  Designated Driver Tickets ($15) include a meal from a local food truck and unlimited alcohol-free drinks.  Tickets can be purchased HERE .

The forecast for Saturday is partly cloudy with a high of 51. Being that this event is one month later than in previous years, don’t expect to freeze your “pint” off this year either. I might even wear shorts.

Proceeds from this event benefit The Nevada Craft Brewers Association.

Directions to all the local craft establishments can be found on our CRAFT MAP.
