Did someone ask for a Double IPA?!?

The big day finally came! On Tuesday we brewed our first batch of beer on our 3bbl system! It’s a Double IPA and it’s happily fermenting away as I type this.

This was a huge day for the entire BC team. It marks a milestone for us (Justin and I) as now officially being professional brewers but more importantly it’s a milestone for the BC team. So many people put in so much time and effort to get the BC where it is right now. The restaurant, pub and patio look amazing, the chef and his team are knocking out some truly fantastic food, the bartenders/servers/hostess are top notch and always give outstanding customer service and now we have our very own small batch Nano Brewery to top it all off!

On top of thanking the team at BC for helping with all that they do, I wanted to give a special thanks to Rob and Dave over at Premier for coming down and brewing our first batch with us. With their insight, our over the top Double IPA brew day went off without a hitch.

We have two more batches lined up to brew this week, which means in approximately 3-4 weeks we will have all of these beers ready to pour, plus a few special test batches to try as well.

So until next time BC friends and family, be safe and thank you again for welcoming our new establishment with open arms. We truly appreciate it….Cheers.


Goose Island – Sofie

Another new one on draft at the BC is Goose Island– Sofie. This ale is fermented with wild yeast and aged in wine barrels with orange peel. It’s tart, dry and refreshing!

Stillwater Existent

Stillwater – Existent

We just tapped a keg of Stillwater Brewing – Existence. This Dark Saison/Farmhouse Ale that has a mild roasty flavor with earthly hop bitterness. If you haven’t triedStillwateryet, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Drafts, Bottles and Breweries Oh My!

Hey there everyone. This is David, one half of the Brewer’s Cabinet Brew Crew. I wanted to send out a huge thank you to everyone who has been able to make it to our new establishment over the last week.

 For those of you who were able to try our selection of soft opening beers I want to thank you for the constructive and positive feedback you gave us on our comment cards. It seemed like all of you enjoyed our beers and we are very happy to hear that! The one downside to all of you enjoying our beers is that all you guys drank it all…Haha!

 For those of you that have not had the opportunity to try our house beers yet don’t stress. Our fancy 3bbl brewery is days away from completion which means once those fermentors are filled and our friendly yeast strains give us some vigorous fermentation we will have more than enough Brewer’s Cabinet beers to go around.

 Until then don’t think that we are out of tasty beverages. Our guest drafts are pretty top notch. A few personal highlights are Firestone Walker Double Jack, Stone Smoked Porter w/ Chipotle Peppers and Gulpener Mestreechs Aajt Sour Ale.

 Of course our beer selection doesn’t stop with just drafts. We have a great bottle selection as well and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Again picking out a few personal favorites would be the Grass Roots Wachu Saison and Yeasty Boys Digital IPA.


So until next time I hope too see you all very soon!

Thank You Silver Peak, Great Basin and Brew Brothers!

The Brewer’s Cabinet would like to thank Great Basin Brewery for clearing the path in Nevada for Breweries, they got the whole thing started! We would also like to thank Silver Peak Brewery and Brew Brothers for helping pave that path for the next generation of Breweries to come.

Special thanks to Jazz and Ryan at Great Basin, Greg and Aaron at Brew Brothers, and Trent at Silver Peak for taking our phone calls, meeting with us, and taking the time to talk during our licensing and build out. Your advice was invaluable to us! Thank you for donating beer to our Opening Weekend and Charity events. It would have been very easy for these guys to blow us off and not help new competition in the area. But they didn’t, they have all been there for us from day 1.

We are humbled by these fellow Reno Businesses and we hope to live up to the standards they have set for this town.

Thanks again to Silver Peak, Great Basin, and Brew Brothers!
