Reno Craft Beer Week events where beer geeks might learn things about beer
So, you’re at the bar with a buddy and you order something barrel aged and they order a domestic. They try to ask you what barrel aged means but their eyes gloss over when you dive into the chemistry and methods. If something like this has ever happened to you, you’ll probably enjoy geeking out at these events. Drag your buddy along too since they clearly need an education. Below is a list of beer week events geared toward those who want to learn about the science of beer or the specs of local breweries. Stay tuned for more guides to navigating Reno Craft Beer Week.
