Bottoms Up – Craft Beer Events in Reno Tahoe

We all know that beer is delicious, but it is even more enjoyable when you gulp it down while attending an awesome event. We have several beer drinking events coming to Reno Tahoe. Check your calendar and call your friends because you won’t want to miss any of these beer events!

Brew HaHa

For one night in January, the Nugget Casino Resort‘s Grand Ballroom transforms into a beer lovers paradise during Brew HaHa. You’ll have your choice of more than 100 beers on tap, as well as live entertainment to keep you dancing all night. VIP food pairing packages are available, as well as special ‘take the elevator home’ room rates to save finding a ride home at the end of the evening.

Strange Brew Festival

Expect the unexpected at this truly unique beer festival, hosted by Brewer’s Cabinet. Local breweries are invited to dream up a craft beer that will challenge your taste buds and how you think about beer… hopefully in a good way! The brews are created especially for the Strange Brew Festival so this is your only chance to try them. Bring your sense of adventure and check out this fun, one-of-a-kind beer festival that takes place every spring.

The Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews & Blues Festival

This favorite annual event kicks off summer, pairing delicious brews with mouthwatering barbecue. Every June, The Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews & Blues Festival takes over downtown Reno for a weekend. Enjoy great food and beer while listening to live rock and blues music at one of the outdoor stages.

The Biggest Little Invitational Craft Beer Festival

The summer beer festival fun continues at this craft beer festival, which is dedicated to showcasing the best of the best in the brewery world. With top-notch entertainment, local food vendors and some good old-fashioned lawn games, all in the beautiful Bartley Ranch setting, The Biggest Little Invitational Craft Beer Festival sets the standard for craft beer festivals in Northern Nevada. The list of participating breweries is impressive and provides beer-lovers a unique opportunity to sample uncommon brews.

Legends of Beer Festival

The perfect mix of outdoors and craft beer, the Legends of Beer Festival features more than 30 craft breweries from around the region, paired with some friendly competition with a “beer-mile” relay, pitting local brewery and bar staff against each other in a relay race. The event is held in September at the Outlets at Legends in Sparks, with several food options available as well.

Grand Sierra Beer & Chili Festival

The flavors of fall come together at the Grand Sierra Beer & Chili Festival. Held every October, this festival features live music, beer from local, regional and national breweries, and of course, chili cookers vying for the top spot with their (often top secret) chili recipes.

Reno Beer Crawls

If you’re visiting Reno on the 4th Saturday of the month, you will inevitably, and luckily, enter the wacky world of the Reno Beer Crawl. Purchase a commemorative cup or glass and get drink specials at as many as 20 different locations. It’s an easy walk (or crawl) to each beer crawl location as they are all in the heart of downtown Reno. For the latest updates, check out their Facebook page.
