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!
We have recently received some great reviews online from several bloggers we would like to thank and re-post on here.
Take a look for yourself:

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.
You can find it in Portland at:
