“It’s definitely gaining enthusiasm, we’re seeing more people and it’s a great time of year to be drinking beer,” said Owner Tim McLean, who says he always sees more customers on the day of the Reno Beer Crawl.

“I see a good group of dedicated regulars for this event,” said McLean

Down the street,The Waterfall Bar is ground zero for the festivities. Over 300 people picked up their tasting glass and wristband before setting out to 21 different locations.

“We’re just looking to make this event even bigger and to have a more fun time with it,” said West Mueller, owner of the Reno Beer Crawl

As a bar manager himself, Mueller planed the beer crawl to coinside with a time traditionally slow time for bars.

“This is a way to get business where you’re not really getting business,” said Mueller.

“Oh we have probably come just about every month. its a nice thing to do,” said Barb Olsen, a regular at the Reno Beer Crawl.

For Barb and her husband Scott, it’s a chance to try new beers, but also explore new spots downtown.

“I actually have learned to appreciate different types of beer,” said Barb.
“You get to see the different sights at different bars, an a lot of times you find out just what different restaurants… and find out different places,” said Scott.

Where you really see the crawl working its magic is on out-of-towners. A group from Oregon visits Reno often but makes sure their trip coinsides with the monthly crawl. Which is good news for the businesses involved.

Coors the Banquet Beer

Coors the Banquet Beer

This week we are nominating Coors the Banquet Beer as our beer of the week in celebration of the Reno Rodeo – The Coors Brewing Company managed to survive Prohibition relatively intact and for much of its history, Coors beer has been a proud supporter of the American west.

THE COORS HISTORY…

Adolph was born in 1847 in Barmen, Prussia, a place now known as Wuppertal, Germany. Soon after, the family moved to the nearby city of Dortmund where there was plenty of work for Adolph’s father, a master flour miller. From the age of 13, Adolph apprenticed with local tradesmen, including a printer and bookbinder. At 14, he found what would become his life’s work when he began an apprenticeship at the Henry Wenker Brewery in Dortmund.The following year was a tragic one for Adolph and his younger brother and sister. First their mother and then their father died. For Adolph, his position at the brewery now became more than training, but a means of survival. As a brewer’s apprentice, he received food, clothing and a place to live. Of equal importance, the 36-year-old son of the brewery’s owner became the boy’s mentor. It’s believed that Adolph also earned a little money for himself by working nights as the brewery’s bookkeeper. This added to his knowledge of brewing and passion for his craft, helping him to become savvy about the bottom line.Adolph continued to work in the brewing industry until he was 21, when war and unrest in his country caused him – like half a million other Germans – to seek opportunity in America. Stowing away on a ship, Adolph arrived in the United States – probably New York – in 1868 with no money and no job. What he had was a dream – a brewery of his own.Heeding Horace Greeley’s then popular refrain, “Go West, young man, go West,” Adolph began his journey across America. The young immigrant earned his living along the way as a bricklayer, stonecutter and laborer before hiring on as the foreman at the Stenger Brewery in Naperville, Illinois, in late 1869. As the story goes, the brewery proprietor had three daughters and saw his new foreman as a future son-in-law. Apparently, Adolph was not intrigued with this prospect. After a two and one half year stay, he continued westward. Working his way on the railroad, Adolph came to Denver, Colorado, in 1872 ready to pursue his dream in earnest. Within a month, he had purchased a partnership in a Denver bottling company and by year’s end, he was its sole owner. For many people, this would have been enough. Not for Adolph. Brewing was in his blood. On Sundays, his only day off, he walked around the town of Golden, in the foothills west of Denver, enjoying the landscape and planning his brewery. Although it was a time when wide-eyed fortune hunters combed the Colorado Rockies in search of gold, Adolph’s thoughts were on treasure of a different kind – water, the key ingredient for the perfect beer. He found it in the rich Clear Creek valley just east of Golden, where cool springs bubbled over in abundance among the willows. Here, at the site of an abandoned tannery on the banks of the creek, was the perfect location to launch his new enterprise.

Reno Beer Crawl – Beer of the Week

Reno Beer Crawl - Beer of the Week

Our favorite beer of the week is North Coast Brewing Co. Scrimshaw Pilsner. It’s a brilliant golden amber color, with canned peach, tangerine peel, caramel chocolate cake, and yeasty bread dough aromas. A frothy entry leads to a dryish light-to medium body of toast, dried stone fruit, and tangerines. Finishes with a canned peach and marmalade fade.

15 Benefits from Drinking Beer

So you don’t think beer is good for you? Well actually when consumed moderately the benefits of beer are pretty surprising! Check out the following 15 positive effects of beer.

beer

1. Beer reduces the incidences of kidney stone formation by dissolving away particles and toxins before the clump together to form larger deposits, which then have to pass through the urinary system in a very painful process.

2. Beer lowers blood insulin which reduces likelihood of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Beer improves blood circulation.

3. The foliates (water soluble B vitamin) in beer lower the risk of coronary diseases by as much as 30%.

Light beer drinking reduces the chances of strokes by as much as 20%.

4. Beer has Flavanoids (natural plant oxidants) that fight free radicals in the body which are associated with many diseases including cancer.

5. The flavanoids in beer have estrogen-like properties from which it is possible to develop natural hormone replacement therapies for post-menopausal women. Dark beer has more flavanoids. By raising the level of HDL (good cholesterol) beer can lower the risk of blood clots that cause strokes and thrombosis. This happens through the improved lining of blood vessels that reduces the chance of blood clot formation.

6.Beer is increasingly being touted for reducing the onset of several diseases related to natural aging. The silicon in beer is also good for making the bones stronger and healthier. It increases bone density and helps avoid osteoporosis.

7.Beer promotes relaxation, lowers stress levels and improves sleeping.

8. Among the elderly, there are proven benefits in the areas of sleep, urinary function, bone density and widening of blood vessels.

9.The silicon in beer counters the neurotoxins that are associated with Alzheimerâs disease.

10. Beer drinking appears to reduce the onset of dementia.

11. Beer is over 90% water which means it’s good for flushing out the kidneys.

12. Studies have shown that beer improves the mental capacity in seniors especially in women. It has a positive effect on short-term memory, reasoning capacity and concentration.

13. It is mostly free of bacteria due to the techniques employed during brewing.

14. Hair conditioned with beer benefits from an improved sheen and glow.

15. Beer is an excellent ingredient in batters, gravies and soups. It also serves as a very good meat tenderizer.
