Valentine's Day Gift Bags from Buckbean Brewing Company and Sweets Candy Company

So you skipped the crowded parking lots and ugly lines at the mall, scored some Christmas boxes at Buckbean, and got some presents that someone really appreciated. Good for you, and well deserved pat on the back!

But now another shopping conundrum looms ominously: Valentines Day!

No worries. Once again, Buckbean has you covered, with style and convenience. Working with our fine local chocolatier at Sweets candy company, we have created a fun and delicious gift idea for you.

Our Valentine gift bags contain 1 can each of our year round canned beers (OOBA, Tule Duck Red Ale, and Black Noddy Lager), each paired with 2 different gourmet truffles from Sweets, and a Buckbean pint glass to share the beer. This isn't just candy for Valentine's, this is an amazing, decadent, intimate tasting experience that will truly enhance your Valentine pleasures.

Enjoy a floral lavender truffle, and a sweet and spicy chocolate-chili truffle with the bright and aromatic OOBA; a savory sea salt caramel and a black cherry truffle with the full, herbal Tule Duck Red Ale; a cappuccino truffle and a hazelnut truffle with the smoky, smooth Black Noddy Lager, all for just $18.

And the best part is, you get to do your shopping at your favorite brewery!

The bags are available for purchase at the brewery. And while you're at it, you can sample some of our tasty brews on tap, including the return of Adaven IPA!

Some great reviews, OR, and Vegas baby

Goin' Down to Vegas!
We are burned out on the gray skies, the snow, the rain, and the overall gloom of the winter weather here in Reno. That's why, once again, we are in the midst of planning another beer festival in Las Vegas out at MonteLago Village!
We have confirmed almost 10 breweries so far, including Stone Brewing Company, Sonoran Brewing Company, Boulder Dam Brewing, and Tenaya Creek!
The date for the festival is March 13th. If you or any breweries/brewers you know would be interested in attending, please drop me a line!
This time last year the festival had more than 2,000 people attend. If you live in the Vegas area or are planning a trip around St. Patty's Day please keep this event in mind!

New Reviews!
We have recently received some great reviews online from several bloggers we would like to thank and re-post on here.

Buckbean in Oregon!

Owner Doug Booth was first inspired to open a brewery based on his visit to the Oregon Brewer's Festival in 1988. Now he has the satisfaction of knowing his beer is located in the very city that spiked his curiosity and obsession with beer to being with!
Buckbean is the only Nevada beer currently sold in Oregon.
