The event is planned to feature more than 30 brewers from around the state, local food trucks and live music from some of the region’s most popular musicians. Proceeds for the event will benefit the Nevada Craft Brewers Association and the American Cancer Society. For tickets and more information, visit www.fallharvestfest.com.

“This event is going to be unlike any other and we are excited to bring together industry experts from around the state to showcase what Nevada’s craft brewing scene has to offer,” said Scott Emond, owner and brewmaster at Under the Rose. “We have live music, great food and excellent beer made in Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe and everywhere in between, as well as a few well-known special guests, and we are looking forward to putting on a truly great event.”
