Brews & Boos Beer Fest – Brewery List

Just here for the boosCraft beer is incredibly popular right now, and so are tribute bands. So we decided in honor of Halloween this year we would put them together and give Reno an unforgettable experience at Nugget Brews & Boos Beer Fest.

The event will be held on Friday, October 30th in the Nugget Ballroom. The rock show starts at 8:00 p.m. when Snake Oil Sinners band takes the stage. The band will perform everyone’s favorite big hair rock, melodic rock, metal and classic rock songs. This is no regular band, and you won’t want to miss a minute of their show when they perform hits from Def Leppard, Queen, Ozzy, Aerosmith, Guns & Roses, Journey and more.

There are 45 breweries participating in Brews & Boos Beer Fest as of right now. The number is subject to change up until the day of the event. There are different varieties of brew and a lot of brewers submitted fall and winter ales in hopes of winning the People’s Choice award. This time of year the Ciders are also a big fan favorite.  Check out the event promo video and the list below to see if your favorite brewery will be featured at this year’s inaugural Brews & Boos Beer Fest.

Tim Snider & Jelly Bread – Celebrity Showroom Performance

Celebrity Showroom - Nugget Casino Resort

Recently I became the Director of Entertainment. One of the fun duties that comes with this position is managing the 4-wall Celebrity Showroom rental program. We don’t always have entertainment scheduled for the Celebrity Showroom so I do my best to fill it with rentals when we have openings in the schedule. It is much better than having a dark theater.

We often rent the room to local dance groups for their recitals. Recently we worked with a group that was shooting a music video. We also work with local musicians for CD release parties, where we share the ticket sales. We basically cover our expenses and these great bands get to perform on the legendary Celebrity Showroom stage.

Saturday night we had Tim Snider and Jelly Bread (acoustic) in the house for a local show. It was fantastic! They put on the kind of show that gives you butterflies when it is over because you enjoyed their performance so much. Their sounds are completely unique and you can feel their passion for music when they play. The sound in the Celebrity Showroom is unbeatable! When they designed the room they really designed it well for shows. The room is small enough that it offers a very intimate setting and it has that classic showroom feel.

I enjoyed the Tim Snider and Jelly Bread show so much that I’m thinking about planning a special event music series sometime in the Fall. I want to put on a show that will highlight our amazing local talent. The only caveat here is that I need to find bands that are good enough and popular enough to fill 690 seats. Reno’s music scene is thriving, so I think this is going to be a great new event.
