This town has a lot of great home brewers. And Joe Reyna is one of the best. We won the 2017 Backwash competition. His winning beer, a Vanilla IPA is being brewed by Silver Peak Brewing who will be hosting a release party for Joe’s beer. The beer has a hint of Madagascar vanilla and showcases Amarillo, Nelson, Mosaic and Citra hops. Proceeds will benefit the Northern Nevada RAVE Foundation. Bringing the gift of time to families with special needs.

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


South Lake Brewing  just released Cicerone Repellent, a barleywine style ale. This bad boy is brewed with British malts and fermented with their house yeast strain. Most of this batch is spending an extended period of time in bourbon barrels, but they decided to put a couple of kegs on for your enjoyment. Notes of toffee, black cherries, and plums with a slight warming finish. 9.3% ABV.

IMBĪB Custom Brews is releasing Mango-Peach NV Weisse, a nice tropical sour for the spring. They will also have a special (sherbet) version of this beer as well.


Last Friday, it was announced that Reno Craft Beer Week has been cancelled for 2018. We wrote about it earlier this week. You can read about it HERE. There will be some events taking place that week without the RCBW label.

Boulevard Brewing Company today announced that its beers will be distributed throughout Nevada starting in April. The Kansas City brewery has appointed Breakthru Beverage Nevada to distribute its brands. Many of Boulevard’s most popular beers will be available  including: Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, Unfiltered Wheat Beer, Tropical Pale Ale, along with a variety of seasonal and limited releases.

Beer NV has partnered up with United Blood Services Reno to turn the month of March into Pint For Pint Month. It’s as simple as this. You donate a pint of blood and you’ll receive a voucher for a free pint of beer from Beer NV.

Directions to all the local craft establishments can be found on our CRAFT MAP.
We also have an EVENTS page!
