Reno Craft Beer Week event: Backwash celebrates homebrewing at Reno Aces Ballpark

This is a press release and includes no original reporting.

Project Great Outdoor’s fun fundraiser is back. Backwash 2015 will bring together the region’s top home brewers in a display of fermentation finery. The beer tap titillation is set for 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 25 at the Freight House District in Reno Aces Ball Park.

This year, Backwash is a part of Reno Craft Beer Week and will again crown champions for People’s Choice and Brewers Choice. The winner of the Brewer’s Choice award will be brewed at the Silver Peak and become part of the tap line. They will also receive a keg. The People’s Choice winner will receive $500.

The celebration of hops helps Project Great Outdoors — comprised of outdoor guides, educators and community leaders — change the lives of troubled youth by giving them a healthier outlook on life through outdoor activities and adventures.

At the last Backwash, the event raised more than $12,000. Several past Backwash winners and participants are now professionals operating their own craft breweries.
