More than 25 breweries from around the state will converge at Reno Aces Ballpark for the inaugural Fall Harvest Festival on Oct. 10. Breweries from Las Vegas, Tonopah, Lake Tahoe, Truckee and Reno, including local favorites like Under the Rose Brewing Co., The Depot and Brasserie St. James, will be joined by new-to-market brewers like Founders and others to celebrate Nevada’s burgeoning craft brewing industry.
It will be the first public event ever held on the field at Aces Ballpark and will feature food trucks like Nom Eats, Schnitzel, Electric Blue Elephant, Burger Me and Brothers Barbecue, as well as live music by the Novelists, Max Volume Band, Bluff Caller and DJ Mojo JoJo. Nevada retailer Reno eNVy will launch its all new “Brewer eNVy” line at the festival.
“This event is going to be an incredible display of the craft brewing industry in Nevada and the first chance for people to meet brewers from around the state and taste some of their beers all in one place,” said Scott Emond, owner and brewmaster at Under the Rose. “It is also the first event to be held on the field at the Aces Ballpark, and we’re grateful for our partnership with the Aces, the city of Reno and all of our participants, vendors and musicians for helping us create a truly one-of-a-kind event.”
