Wednesday, April 2 at 8 p.m. Craft Reno host an Italian beer dinner at La Vecchia Ristorante. La Vecchia owner Alberto Gazzola created a menu that Craft Reno paired with some of the finest hand-crafted beers Italy has to offer.  To give the evening a special touch they’ll be pouring several selections from magnum (1.5 liters) and even one from jeroboam (3 liters).

The meal will be six courses that will take your palate on a roller coaster ride of flavor with appropriately complimentary beers to accompany each plate.
