Since 1994, Beer Fest has allowed the Nevada Young Alumni Chapter to donate scholarships to deserving undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Nevada. We are proud to have awarded more than $85,000 in financial aid over just the last 15 years – and nearly $45,000 since 2017! We are about to award the $15,000 in scholarships from last year’s Beer Fest so that’s the 3-year total.

All Beer Fest attendees will receive a commemorative pint glass courtesy of Custom Ink, and as much beer as you can responsibly taste from our many vendors. This is a 21+ event but is open to the public – you do not need to be a University of Nevada graduate to attend. However, members of the Young Alumni Chapter qualify for a discounted ticket of only $20 and complimentary 6PM early entry to beat the crowds.
