Local brewery and performing arts venue team up and ask public to help determine favorite offering for upcoming season.
Pigeon Head Brewery and Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts are searching for the best beer for the big stage. The community is encouraged to vote for their favorite beer to be served at all performances as well as the popular “Broadway Comes to Reno” series this fall. The winning brew will be shared at every concession stand as the Pioneer Center’s official partner beer. “We are beyond excited to get started narrowing down the feature beer for the Pioneer Center,” said Bryan Kenneth Holloway, co-owner and brewmaster for Pigeon Head Brewery. “This will give folks the opportunity to enjoy many of our great offerings including lagers, pilsners, IPAs, and more.” Holloway acquired a bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University Nevada. Although he went on to join the beer industry, he continues to be an avid supporter of local music and arts programs and now has the opportunity to support such programs through the various charity events throughout the year.

About Pigeon Head Brewery
Pigeon Head Brewery was founded in May 2014 with the inclination to brew traditional German-style lagers. As our love for lagers grew, so did our desire to explore the many other styles that craft beer has to offer. Our taproom is a great place for the beer drinking community to unite. Stop by to enjoy weekly beer specials and pick up a case to take home. Indoor seating with views of the brew house and outdoor patio seating (weather permitting) are available for groups of all sizes. Special events and parties welcomed. For more information, visit pigeonheadbrewery.com or call (775) 276-6766.
