Tonight from 6:30-8p head to Brasserie St. James for the unveiling of the Reno/Sparks Brewery Map. There will be free tasters of beer from around the area, appetizers, and mingling with brewers from all over the city. This event follows the State of the City Address and there’s a chance you can meet some of your local legislatures and politicians. Let’s show them how important supporting local breweries is to our community.
Our brewers are headed to Denver, CO once again this year to join over 800 breweries at the largest beer festival in the country. It’s a week of beer dinners, tap takeovers, and endless beer samples in one of the greatest beer cities in the world. Wish us and all of our regional brewery friends luck!

We look forward to every Labor Day Weekend as the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off devours the streets of Victorian Square by our Sparks brewpub. Once again, we’ll have all of our beer available in plastic cups so you can grab a pint (or more) from us then get loaded up with a few slabs of ribs! When you’ve had your fill of delicious smoked-meat (it happens) come on back and enjoy live music on our stage Wednesday - Sunday at 7:00pm and Satuday - Monday at 12:00 noon. Maybe get a salad, too? We aren’t happy about it either, but you have to eat your vegetables, Mom said.

The time for beer mixed with aerobic activity is yet again upon us! The fourth annual Great Basin Brew Relay will commence on September 26th. It’s a 4 person 40 mile relay through Reno and Sparks. It starts and ends at our Sparks brewpub which is, coincidentally, a fantastic place for your celebratory beer! This run is limited to the first 75 teams and it will sell out.
