Buy your tickets for Beer Fest, then check back here later so you know what to drink when you get there

Other than providing one of the largest beer festivals in Reno, the Nevada Young Alumni Association puts on Beer Fest in order to raise money for scholarships for undergraduates at the University of Nevada, Reno. In the past few years, they were able to award over $25,000 in scholarships. This is the 21 year, which means the festival itself is finally allowed to drink itself?

Past vendors have included: BJ’s Brewhouse, Lagunitas, New West Distributing, Ole Bridge-Pub, PJ’s, Rail City Alehouse, Southern Wine and Spirits (PDF), Wirtz Distribution, St. James Infirmary, Great Basin Brewery, Ceol, Morrey, Sierra Gold and more.

Drinkable Reno will bring an up to date vendor list as the event details are solidified.

Check out the awesome fun everyone was having last year.
