The Nevada Young Alumni Chapter's 25th Annual Beer Fest is Reno's oldest annual tasting event and will feature nearly 100 different brews and spirits from more than 50 regional breweries and distilleries, as well as live entertainment. Since 1994, Beer Fest has allowed the Young Alumni Chapter to award over $70,000 in scholarships to deserving undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Nevada.

All Beer Fest attendees will receive a commemorative pint glass courtesy of Mann Mortgage Reno, and as much beer as they can responsibly taste from the many vendors. This is a 21+ event but is open to the public – you do not need to be a University of Nevada graduate to attend. However, members of the Young Alumni Chapter qualify for a discounted ticket of only $20 and complimentary 6pm early entry to beat the crowds.


The Young Alumni Chapter is an arm of the the Nevada Alumni Association, a 501(c)(3) organization. Money raised goes to scholarships for University of Nevada Students.

You do not have to be a Nevada graduate to attend but it is a 21 and over event.
