Happy Easter! For all you “don’t drink during Lent” folks, welcome back. Also, happy 4/20. As we all know, Cannabis  Sativa  (Marijuana) and Humulus lupulus (Hops) belong to the same plant family—Cannabinaceae.  They diverged genetically about 25,000 years ago. Being that they’re cousins, it might be time for a family reunion. Not a lot, but, read on for details about events, releases and news for our local craft beverage scene for the upcoming week in the Northern Nevada region. Cheers!

We have added a couple of new happenings to our EVENTS page! Just in case you wanted to plan ahead…


Alibi Ale Works recently tapped their first ever English-style Mild Ale, Call of the Mild. Mild Ale is a sessionable English brown ale, and this one is no exception. The primary flavors are toasted bread crust, toffee, and a touch of coffee. But don’t let it’s deep brown color fool you. At 4.5% abv, it’s an easy drinker you can session all day long. Draft only at both locations.

IMBĪB Custom Brews released Tridentata Pale Ale, just in time for spring. This beer was created in collaboration with Noble Pie Parlor to pair with their amazing pizza and wings. Light malt body with hints of caramel and honey combined with citrus and tropical hop flavors. Dry hopped with Citra and Centennial.  5.5% ABV.

Can/Bottle Releases

Shoe Tree Brewing just canned up a bunch of Wicked Shifty Sour NE IPA.
