Between all of the concrete walls, inflatable obstacles, and cleverly positioned barrels, it’s hard to get a good look at anyone at Reno Indoor Paintball. On any given day, the 27,000-square-foot facility hosts dozens of well-armored players, who sprint around the grounds and splatter their opponents until supplies run out or they accomplish their missions. During battles, the staff remains on hand to help players to gear up and to ensure things remain civil. And on select days, staffers also host training sessions or events for larger groups looking to celebrate occasions such as birthdays, bachelor parties, or a high-school graduate’s first successful load of laundry.
In 1933, the United States Constitution’s 21st Amendment was ratified, and Prohibition ended. To celebrate this landmark—and their own 21st beer release—The Brewer’s Cabinet crafted Twenty One, a West Coast Imperial IPA that blends bittering hops with rare amarillo hops. The light result is just one of the small-batch beers the nanobrewery is known for. The pub places no limits on its brewers’ creativity and style, encouraging funky flavors rather than relying on the most basic beer, a mug of wheat stalks.
To complement brews, the culinary team whips up fresh, local plates in the small onsite kitchen, ranging from lunchtime’s lamb burger with goat cheese to dinnertime’s polenta lasagna. Though customers always benefit from the hearty pub-style meals, The Brewer’s Cabinet also benefits the surrounding community. The team strives to collaborate with other area breweries, and 5 cents from every item purchased at The Brewer’s Cabinet goes to benefit The Reno Rebuild Project.
Ever since they moved into their swampland estate, tragedy upon tragedy has befallen the Kilburn family. First Mrs. Kilburn perished in the fire that also claimed the family mansion. In his grief, Mr. Kilburn built a reform school for troubled boys, but spurred more trouble in his own sons by locking them in the school basement. Ever since the oldest, Mel, escaped, nobody's seen the family's patriarch. The youngest, Lester, still works as the school janitor, though many believe his main job is harvesting the souls of the school's students.
Kingdom of Horrors encompasses the school's 26 rooms, where Mel, Lester, and an assortment of other petrifying characters lurk. Donning the getups of horned demons and bloodied ghouls, the house's "haunt crew" delights in scaring intrepid visitors every October.

Hand-thrown ceramic vases, custom-stained glass lamps, blown glass, and textiles. The Craft Festival's 200 booths boast the handcrafted bounty of artisans from seven western states.
