A lineup of favorite free-flowing beverages in Reno/Tahoe. By Rae Matthews, Elevation Eats. Welcome to the draft, though this is not every college athlete’s dream, I’m referring to some tasty draught drinks right here in the Sierra. Beverages from the tap, of course, started with beer, and date back as far as the 17th century (possibly further). Originally, the beer was in wooden casks and gravity was the primary mode of conveyance.
Local retailers that’ll keep you warm this winter. By Heidi Bethel. If you’re anything like me, I like options … especially when it comes to braving the wintry air outdoors. Adding a layer, or two, is one of the best ways to ensure an enjoyable day on the mountain.

Local Vibes – Living a life without limits. By Nicole Marsel. Much like the character of Merida from the movie “Brave,” Teal Stetson-Lee is courageous, daring, helps others conquer their fears and has a great head of hair. Those are very rare qualities to come across in one single person these days. She’s also a complete badass when it comes to enduro mountain bike racing and cyclocross racing. When I moved to Tahoe, mountain biking was only natural to pick up. While you visit, perhaps you could follow Teal’s lead and push yourself to the next level in America’s all-season playground!

Now, there are many ways to do this — hiking, spending time at the dog park with my reluctant schnauzer, brunching on patios or simply sipping a cup of coffee on an Adirondack chair. But, I think the best way to experience the glory of temperate weather is by pairing it with art. Luckily, there’s a host of ways to pair the two. Here are some of my favorites.
