he Nevada Young Alumni Chapter invites the Northern Nevada community to Beer Fest – the region’s oldest and premier tasting event. The 27th annual scholarship fundraiser will take place on Saturday, June 11 at Greater Nevada Field from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Since 1994, Beer Fest has enabled the Nevada Young Alumni Chapter to raise scholarship funds for deserving undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Nevada. They are proud to have awarded more than $85,000 in scholarships over the past 15 years with nearly $60,000 of that financial aid awarded over just the last four years. They plan to significantly grow that total in 2022 with the support of the community and their event sponsors: Bay Equity Home Loans, Midtown Diamonds, Battle Born Beer, Custom Ink, MelJane Media, Reno Brew Card and Western Nevada Supply.
Each Beer Fest attendee will receive a commemorative pint glass, courtesy of Bay Equity Home Loans, to taste the dozens of unique brews and spirits on tap for the evening. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase during the event for prize packages comprised of donations from numerous local businesses. The drawing for raffle prizes will be held towards the end of the event, and winners must be present to claim their prize.
“Our board is so excited to be bringing back our scholarship event after missing two years. The event will feature over various different brews and spirits from our dozens of vendors, including many local breweries such as Lead Dog Brewing, Pigeon Head Brewing and Huntsman Brewing.” said Melissa Ung, President of the Nevada Young Alumni Chapter. “We are proud of the scholarship money we have been able to award to Nevada students from this event.”
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.NevadaYAC.com. This is a 21+ event, but you do not need to be a University of Nevada graduate to attend.
