Over the last 5+ years, the Reno craft beer community has grown leaps and bounds. With this growth, the demand for better selection and better quality has increased as well, leading to multiple beer-centric establishments opening, such as Beer NV. And we all know that Reno not only loves craft beer, but loves a good party too. So with much excitement, we happily announce The Biggest Little Invitational, a 21 and over craft beer festival dedicated to showcasing the best of the best in the brewery world. With local food vendors, some good old fashion lawn games, and the beautiful Bartley Ranch setting, get ready for the new standard for craft beer festivals in Northern Nevada.

Join us on Saturday June 8th from 1p-5p for The Biggest Little Invitational craft beer festival. If you’re looking to get your hands on some rare and limited supply brews before they run out, then you’ll want to grab the Early Entry ticket which gets you into the festival 1 hour early at 12p. Be sure to save the date and don’t forget to lock in a sitter for the kids.

The Venue

In choosing Bartley Ranch as the venue for The Biggest Little Invitational, we saw a location offering not only enough space for our first year event, but one we can grow the event for years to come. It just so happens to also offer a killer backdrop, grass, shade, seating, and parking. It’s centralized location makes it easy for attendees to arrive whether driving, biking, or Lyfting to the festival.


Getting away isn’t about holding back. It’s about indulging, rewarding and savoring every moment. As Reno’s only non-gaming, non-smoking, full-service branded hotel, the Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel offers a different kind of setting – incredible riverfront views, exceptional fine and casual dining, luxury accommodations, a rooftop outdoor pool and an exclusive bocce entertainment venue to take your escape to the next level. Located in the heart of downtown Reno and on the banks of the Truckee River, the Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel is your ideal home base to explore the incredible Sierra Nevada setting while attending the Biggest Little Invitational.
