Project Great Outdoor’s fundraiser is back. Backwash 2015 will bring together the region’s top home brewers in a display of fermentation finery. The beer tap event is set for 3-7 p.m, April 25 at the Freight House District in Reno Aces Ball Park.
Tickets include food a wide variety of beer samples and music supplied by Drinking with Clowns. Act fast and you can attend our fourth celebration of hops and hopes for only $35. Early bird tickets are only available through March 23. After that, it’s still a reasonable $45.
Sponsorship packages begin at $500 and come with a bunch of cool spiffs and we have designated driver tickets for $20.
This year, Backwash is a part of Reno Craft Beer Week and will again crown champions for People’s Choice and Brewers Choice. The winner of the Brewer’s Choice award will be brewed at the Silver Peak and become part of the tap line. They will also receive a keg for personal consumption. The People’s Choice winner will receive $500.
The celebration of hops helps Project Great Outdoors — comprised of outdoor guides, educators and community leaders — change the lives of troubled youth by giving them a healthier outlook on life through outdoor activities and adventures.
At the last Backwash, the event raised more than $12,000. Several past Backwash winners and participants are now professionals operating their own craft breweries.
Tickets and information are at www.BackwashReno.org or for any other questions, please contact Callie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
