The Reno Brew Bike is a glory of human ingenuity in light of the city’s burgeoning craft brew scene: 6 to 10 people sit across from each other in a human-powered trolley, pedaling from pub to pub. Your itinerary is customized to what you want to drink and where you want to roll.
We checked out 10 Torr, Ole Bridge Pub, and Mellow Fellow, and had a great time—competitive games of corn-hole included. You’ll have 30 to 45 minutes at each establishment, enough for a pint of pilsner or a sample flight (food is available too; we especially liked the tater tots at Mellow Fellow).
When you’re finished, hop back on the Brew Bike, crank the tunes, and pedal to the next establishment. En route you’ll pass by impressive Burning Man art installations and sculpture parks, as well as the Truckee River (ask to include a pub along the river as part of your itinerary).
Don’t feel like pedaling? Sit in the caboose, where you can just chill out and wave at people checking you out (the Brew Bike attracts attention, in a good way). Brew ha ha!
PRO TIP: Have a playlist ready, as you’re the DJ on the Brew Bike! Find more adventures around Reno Tahoe.
