Special thanks to Bob Barnes at The Las Vegas Food and Beverage Professional magazine for the awesome shoutout.
We all appreciate a warm welcome and this one came came with a cold beer. Bob was recently introduced to us by a mutual friend. We chatted by phone but it was inevitable that we would meet (hence, the cold beer). He shared with me what he had prepared below and a few samples of his previous writings.
Most everybody in the local food and beverage industry know him as a long-time contributor to a variety of publications throughout Nevada. So, naturally, we thank you, Bob and LVFB&P for the warm introduction.
New Local Beer Magazine Launched
Good news for beer fans is a newly launched local publication all about craft beer. The brand new publication is called Nevada Beer Quest and can be accessed online at nevadabeerquest.com; or if you are like me and like to hold a magazine in your hands when you read it, you can look for it at more than 30 locations (including 595, Aces & Ales, Bad Beat, Banger, Barley’s, Chicago, CraftHaus, Lovelady and Pub 365), with more locations being added all the time. For the complete list see nevadabeerquest.com/get-your-copy. Owners/Publishers/Editors A.D. Cook and Beti Kristof founded the magazine and in addition to writing articles, Cook also puts his artistic abilities to good use as the Creative Director. The premier May/June issue has features on brew hoppenings, a listing of places to find good beer, regional beer news, info on becoming a cicerone and a spotlight on a featured server. To my knowledge this is the first ever printed publication focused solely on Nevada craft beer and is a welcome addition to our local beer community.
