Happy New Year! We’re back. We took a couple of weeks off and now we’re looking forward to a great 2019. Not a ton of things going on but please 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!

Upcoming Events

There is a new book out called Nevada Beer: An Intoxicating History, covering Nevada’s earliest breweries all the way through where we are today and a look ahead to our bright future. It was written by Pat Evans, who I had the pleasure to meet last year as he was working on this project. The forward was written by our own Tom Young (Great Basing Brewing). There will be a book signing with both Pat and Tom at each Great Basin location. I look forward to seeing the finished work.
