REAL Reno Rarities Doubled Up Beerfest

May 14, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Experience 40+ craft beers (including 20+festival-exclusive variants w/ blueberries) at a beerfest benefiting Nevadan nonprofit Project REAL


REAL Reno Rarities Doubled Up Beerfest is a unique beer event where each attendee receives two tasting glasses!

Why two glasses?! We’re glad you asked!

Each brewery is providing two beers: A recurring seasonal beer , and a festival-exclusive variant of that same beer. This year, all variants will feature the festival challenge ingredient: blueberries!

With two glasses in hand, you’re encouraged to compare & contrast your way through offerings from 20+ Nevadan brewing operations participating in the event.

This event is by and for the community, with 100% of the proceeds being directed to the youth law education nonprofit organizing the event: Project REAL.



General Admission : $35 each and include:

  • General admission to the event from 1pm-5pm
  • Two tasting glasses.
  • Unlimited pours during the festival


VIP Tickets: $75 each, and include

  • 12:30pm *NO WAIT* Early Entry to the festival
  • Unlimited pours during the festival.
  • Two tasting glasses, including a limited-edition VIP Taster
  • ACCESS to the next-day RARE BEER HOSTED bottleshare @ Huntsman Brewing*


VIP Bottleshare Details

VIP ticket holders that have paid to attend the share do not need to bring their own bottles, but are encouraged to do so.

A number of RARE craft beer collectors and aficionado groups have donated over 50 rare bottles to serve as a starting point for the share. Up to 75 additional non-ticketed attendees may be invited, but they will have a bottle-contribution requirement.

TLDR :This will be an epic bottleshare you don’t want to miss, and all for a great cause. Get tickets ASAP because they WILL sell out fast!

The VIP share is a private event that only VIP ticket holders and event staff will be able to attend. The share will take place on Sunday, May 15 from 1pm until 5pm

Project REAL will NOT be supplying any bottles for the bottleshare in compliance with local and state law. That being said, our Senior Director will be driving up from Las Vegas and has stated he will be personally donating atleast one bottle per VIP ticket sold to the bottleshare. You can follow him on Untapped @craftbeerreviews if you would like to get an idea of what he might be contributing.


All Event Attendees must be 21+



Learn more about the nonprofit organizing the event. The work they do teaching Nevada’s students about their rights and responsibilities under the law is vital to justice in our state – Nevadan students are not required to learn about basic legal concepts like the differences between mistakes that can get them grounded versus ones that can get them arrested.
