Dear Brewmaster,

Just wanted to thank you for your unique celebration on Leap Day, February 29th. What a fun way to commemorate the occasion.

Dan C.


Hey Dan,

Thanks for your kind words. We had some serious demand this Leap Day for our $2.29 growler fills, with lines stretching around the building at times. We're glad you got to celebrate with us. See you in four more years!

We're deep into our 3rd annual celebration of all things hoppy for the month of April. We’re pouring 8 unique IPAs until they run dry. Plus, for the truest hop head, we have flights of 7 IPAs for just $10. Each flight you captain gets you entered into a drawing for kegs, swag, and gift certificates on May 1st.

It's time again for our annual Cerveza Chilebeso release party on Friday, April 29 from 5-9 PM!

We've just finished brewing the first batch of the season using freshly harvested chiles, and now it's time to party. Visit our Taps & Tanks brewery (click here for directions) for the finest beer release fiesta this side of the Rio Grande. Marvel at our newly expanded brewery, while you imbibe in Cerveza Chilebeso and enjoy the taco bar. We'll also have a local mariachi band playing their hearts out and there's been rumors that a donkey might be coming to the party!

Admission to the party is free!

We recently wrapped up our Icky Wednesdays on March 30th. One thing is for sure, you're a bunch of thirsty people! We had hundreds of pints of Icky served up over the course of 6 Icky Wednesdays. At the end of the competition we awarded a fresh pair of Icky Skis to two lucky winners at our Sparks and Reno brewpubs.

Congrats and thanks to everyone for making Icky Wednesdays so fun!

Our liquid poem to the art of craft beer.

First released from its whiskey-drenched, charred oak chamber on Leap Day, February 29, 2016 – each and every ingredient has been chosen purposefully with aspirations of crafting the perfect sip. Patiently aged in whiskey barrels for precisely 385 days, 385 Scytale is a faceted gem of nuanced aromas and tastes, boldly roasted chocolate malts, deep dark whiskey, molasses and boundless, brazenly-rich oakiness. Semisweet chocolate, vanilla, and dark stone fruits arrive upon subsequent sips, and as you delve into the unending subtly of licorice, honey, and allspice, you’re left with smooth caramel that saunters on the palate.

385 Scytale releases this Wednesday, April 13 at 5pm at our Sparks brewpub!

We'll be celebrating this special release with a special flight that includes 385 Scytale, the 2015 404 Scytale, and our Russian Imperial Stout for just $12.

Also, get your hands on the very first 385 Scytale bottles available at both of our Sparks and Reno brewpubs after 5pm that day.
