Bus Tour Poster-Post

Day drinking on a Sunday, a great way start to Reno Craft Beer Week

Update March 31 at 10:20 a.m.: The first route was upgraded to a 30-person bus and then sold out. We’re gauging demand for a second 20-person bus. Let us know if you want more tickets!

Update April 8 at 11 a.m.: The second route has been added and the event details have been updated.

Jump on the six-hour Drinkable Reno Beer Week Bus Tour April 19 and sample beers at seven Reno breweries and bars gain free entry during Reno Craft Beer Week.

Reno Tahoe Limousine will safely drive a shuttle bus through Sparks and Reno on a fixed route. All riders will start the beer tour at Great Basin Brewing Co. in Sparks at noon for route one and 12:30 p.m. for route two. Great Basin will serve small apps to get everyone started.

Next, jump on the bus for six more stops including Reno’s newest, currently unopened brewery, IMBĪB Custom Brews, Brewer’s Cabinet’s Strange Brew Fest for route one and Mellow Fellow GastroPub for route two. The trip will end back at Great Basin where we encourage you to eat dinner, sober up and not drive home drunk (seriously we’ll take your keys and hide them).

With a $25 ticket all riders will receive three to four small beer tasters at each brewery (about 3 pints worth of beer). We encourage riders to order a pint of their favorite choice and bring it on the bus (don’t worry, it’s legal). The first route will stop at each brewery for 30 minutes and arrive at Strange Brew Fest at the beginning of the event and stay for 45 minutes. Due to Strange Brew Fest’s capacity limits, the second route will NOT stop at Strange Brew Fest. Instead, it will stop at the newly opened Mellow Fellow GastroPub, where riders will enjoy free appetizer samples of sausages and sandwiches.

Route 1 in order:

Route 2 in order:

  • Great Basin Brewing Company (Sparks location), please arrive at 12:30 p.m.
  • High Sierra Brewery
  • Silver Peak Brewery & Taphouse
  • Mellow Fellow Gastropub

  • The Depot Craft Brewery Distillery

We’ve already upgraded the first bus to 30 people so we’ve started the second bus at 30 and will not be adding any more seats or buses.
