CraftHaus Brewery Celebrates Second Anniversary
with
Hop Bomb Festival on Saturday, September 17 from 5-11pm

 

CraftHaus Brewery is set to celebrate its second year of craft beer with a bomb of a party! The brewery has seen amazing growth, positive reception from the community and plans to keep focused on the future of quality craft beer.

Over the last year, CraftHaus has offered 46 different beers for the community to explore right along with them. The bulk of these beers are thanks to innovative brewers, Steph Cope and Steve Brockman implementing the Tweaked series. This series allows the brewers to explore with interesting and different takes on their core and seasonal beers. The brewery also added 40 barrels or 1,200 gallons to their current 110 barrels of fermentation. “Our growth compared to last year at this time is over 100%, which is a testament to our community’s support,” said Dave Forrest, Co-Owner CraftHaus Brewery.

Offering distinct, quality driven beers lies at the core of CraftHaus’ values. “Seeing the overwhelmingly positive response from our community is the reason we wanted to build this brewery. We are proud to share in the growth of Las Vegas’ craft community,” added Wyndee Forrest, Co-Owner, CraftHaus Brewery.

During the past year, CraftHaus has received widespread local recognition and acclaim. The Mirage Resort asked CraftHaus to create an exclusive beer, Island Hopper, for their property, which can be found year round. The Las Vegas Weekly again awarded the brewery with “Most Creative Brewery of 2016.” Nevada Business Magazine named CraftHaus Brewery, “Best Family Owned Business in 2016.”  Mayor of Henderson, Mr. Andy Hafen, presented the brewery a proclamation during American Craft Beer Week thanking CraftHaus for the work they did to bring the craft beer industry to the city.

CraftHaus Brewery will be celebrating its second year anniversary with the Hop Bomb Party on Saturday, September 17th from 5pm-11pm at the brewery. With over 20 beers on tap, they will be releasing new beers, reviving past beers, hosting special guest taps from their friends and fellow regional breweries along with launching a triple IPA, Hop Bomb, to celebrate. Tickets are priced $25 pre sale, $32 at the door, designated driver for $12 and VIP at $55, and include a commemorative 16 ounce glass and six, four-ounce drink tickets. There will be three local bands and a number of food trucks. Tickets are on sale at http://bpt.me/2584139 . CraftHaus Brewery is located at 7350 Eastgate Rd, Suite 110 Henderson, NV 89011.

OV Nation Announces Goals and Direction to Engage New Members in 2015

OV Nation Announces Goals and Direction to Engage New Members in 2015

First Fundraising and Mixer Event of 2015 Saturday, February 21, 2015 – Tour of The Booze District
to Benefit Opportunity Village

Registration open now at: http://OVNationBoozeDistrict.eventbrite.com

OV Nation, a new generation of Opportunity Village supporters, announces its goals and direction for engaging and activating new members and supporters in 2015. Formed in September of 2013, OV Nation is an auxiliary organization comprised of rising Las Vegas professionals who are committed to expanding Opportunity Village’s reach to future leaders within the community. Over the past year, OV Nation has participated in over a dozen events, fundraisers and awareness campaigns for Opportunity Village and has independently raised thousands of dollars through fundraising efforts. With a goal of doubling that success, OV Nation has restructured its board and event plans in an effort to attract more business professionals who can be involved and at the same time balance work, life, family and social engagements.

“We’ve found that many local professionals want to become involved in the community and contribute to a cause, but have limited time to give,” said Jennifer Mahar, newly appointed chairperson for OV Nation. She continued, “We have restructured the board and committees so individuals can make an impact on their own schedule, without being required to attend set events or meetings.”

The new OV Nation structure will allow members to participate in four events, four mixers and four meetings per year. The four events will include a mix of existing flagship events such as the Magical Forest and HallOVeen, as well those created, hosted and executed by OV Nation. OV Nation mixers will feature an employee of Opportunity Village as well as an OVIP (Opportunity Village client) to inform guests and potential members about the organization and its services. Member meetings will be held at local restaurants that will allow a percentage of the proceeds to be donated back to Opportunity Village, to serve as both a productive meeting and fundraiser. In addition, OV Nation will also have booths at community events, runs and festivals throughout the year to promote the organization.

For its first event of 2015, OV Nation will host a mixer on Saturday, February 21 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at The Booze District in Henderson. Priced at $30 (plus taxes and fees), the mixer will include a tour of The Booze District and samples at member venues including CraftHaus Brewery, Las Vegas Distillery and Grape Expectations, concluding with appetizers at the final location. Open to anyone at least 21 years of age, the OV Nation mixer will provide guests the opportunity to learn more about the organization and its mission, and become involved with other like-minded emerging professionals interested in giving back to our community.

The mission of OV Nation is to identify, develop and engage a new generation of Opportunity Village brand ambassadors, donors, board members, volunteers and supporters. OV Nation has its own Board of Directors who spearhead the committee’s initiatives including special events, fundraising, networking, teambuilding, volunteering and supporting Opportunity Village’s ongoing programs and goals.

About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives and the lives of their families.

Opportunity Village was founded in 1954 by seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible. Now, 60 years later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.

Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves more than 3,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that make their lives more purposeful and interesting.

Opportunity Village citizens – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work at Opportunity Village’s Employment Resource Centers and in jobs throughout the community, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $6.5 million in 2013. They are hard working and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading more fulfilling lives.

Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts and fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $40 million annually.
