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


Revision Brewing and Lead Dog Brewing have made a collaboration beer that will be released on Friday.  Moro Oro is a blood orange and blueberry, milkshake 2xIPA. 8.2% ABV. Stay tuned, launch party coming soon.

Alibi Ale Works has released their first Cream Ale, a light, crushable beer that has a lot in common with light lagers, but fermented with an ale yeast. The recipe incorporates some lightly toasty vienna malt, a touch of flaked corn and a German Ale yeast. If you’ve ever been to Wisconsin and drank a Spotted Cow from New Glarus (probably the most well-known Cream Ale on Earth), you know how tasty they can be. 5.0% ABV.

South Lake Brewing has released Young Punks E.S.B. an ode to the British classic ESB. Admiral Maltings pale and crystal malts lend this beer a base of rustic bread spread with honey and English sweets. Hopped exclusively with East Kent Golding hops adds notes of marmalade, floral, and earthy herbs. 5.6% ABV.

Fox Brewpub in Carson City has released two new brews to celebrate Nevada Day. Stage Coach Porter and Kings Fall Pilsner.


Final Draught Bottles & Taps has opened in Sparks. You can read about our visit HERE.

Great Basin Brewing is looking for volunteers to pour beer, do ticketing and wristbanding and other general help at their 25th Anniversary Party on 11/10. You need to have a valid NV Alcohol Awareness Card.  Details HERE.
