The Nevada Craft Brewer’s Association proudly announces its first 2021 beer festival, Nevada Beer Bash, scheduled for August 21, 2021, from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. at The Front Yard inside Ellis Island Hotel, Casino & Brewery.

Guests can enjoy craft beers from across the Silver State from breweries including Able Baker Brewing; Banger Brewing; Brasserie Saint James; Big Dog’s Brewing Co.; The Brewer’s Cabinet; CraftHaus Brewery; Ellis Island Hotel, Casino & Brewery; Great Basin Brewing Company; HUDL Brewing Company; IMBĪB Custom Brews; Lovelady Brewing Co.; Pigeon Head Brewery; Shoe Tree Brewing; and many more! Beers will vary from signature brews to collaborations, rare releases and one-off craft pours.

“We are on a mission to unite the Nevada beer industry and showcase our state’s world-class craft beer,” said Wyndee Forest, president of the NCBA. “The Nevada Beer Bash allows us to bring together awesome breweries with beer enthusiasts from around Nevada and beyond!”

Ellis Island Director of Marketing and NCBA Board Member Christina Ellis said, “Ellis Island Casino, Hotel & Brewery is extremely proud to be a member of the NCBA and we’re so excited to host the Nevada Beer Bash at our very own beer garden The Front Yard. It’s going to be an evening of great food and incredible beer, all in support of the organization that is helping bring this community together.”

Brew lovers can get VIP tickets for $80 to enjoy an hour of early access, five portions of food pairings specially crafted by The Front Yard, a welcome cocktail, and a swag bag with brewery merch and discounts at their favorite NCBA member breweries.

General admission is anything but general as these tickets still give Nevada beer fans three hours of unlimited tastings of the best beers the state has to offer for $50.
