Sponsor Program

Our home grown celebration of craft beer is just around the corner and we’d love you to be involved in the Third Annual Reno Craft Beer Week, June 2-10, 2017. We hope to make this year’s RCBW better than ever with a wider variety of events, both geographically and thematically, throughout the week.

We will attract beer geeks, ale rookies and culinary adventurists while serving as a showcase for Northern Nevada’s breweries, restaurants, pubs, businesses and experiences with ties to our craft beer community in partnership with the Nevada Craft Brewers Association.

We plan to again kickoff with the biggest little home brew competition Backwash on Friday June 2, and close with the NCBA CollaBREWation Gala in downtown Sparks on Saturday, June 10.

New Sponsorship Programs for 2017

In 2017 we plan to create a more collaborative, synergistic schedule of compelling events.

  • A per-event listing fee with greater exposure for venues that host more than one event
  • Increased casino resort presence with events and room block promotions
  • Educational presentations from well-known brewers
  • More Collaborative beers brewed specifically for Reno Craft Beer Week
  • A new emphasis on the VIP program

Event Requirements

In order to keep RCBW  fun and entertaining for attendees we have some event guidelines that need to be met in order to participate.

  1. Events should be focused on craft beer brands and brewers.  Please focus on local and regional craft beer.
  2. Events need to unique, engaging, educational, entertaining and/or a departure from the norm.

The event does not have to be large, but it does have to be beer-related and add something to Beer Week.  For example, $1 off pints or happy hour specials are not something we think adds value to Beer Week.

Sponsorships are given on a first-PAID, first-serve basis.
