We are inside the final week of the 57th annual Nevada City Classic weekend, June 17-18 in Historic Downtown Nevada City. In our first transition year of this 57 year old Nevada City event, we have some exciting new and locally “produced” updates.
The weekend’s title sponsor, ol’ Republic Brewery has finished canning and “kegging” the first ever Nevada City Classic beer. Keep an eye out for this brew in local dining and drinking establishments as well as local retail for the limited edition 6-packs in the greater Nevada City/Grass Valley area. Of course the Pale Ale can also be found at the ol’ Republic taproom at 124 Argall Way. 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this beer goes to support the events.
In keeping with what we hope will be an ongoing event tradition of local support, The Golden Era Lounge (309 Broad Street) will be serving up a limited Nevada City Classic cocktail beginning on Tuesday June 13 and running through Father’s Day June 18. Again, proceeds from the sale of this drink will go to support the Nevada City Classic.
The inaugural Gourmet Gravel Nevada City takes place Saturday June 17 at 8 am from ol’ Republic with the support of three additional local businesses. FoxHound Coffee Broaster will be providing the coffee and Three Forks Bakery the morning baked goods before the riders take of on the two different routes. Upon the riders return, a catered lunch will be provided by Matteo’s Public and Three Forks Bakery.
The first ever Nevada City Mile running race that takes place at 3:30pm on Sunday June 18th just before the Pro/Am Women bike racers take to the course. We are very proud to have the support of yet another local business, environmentally conscious Volz Bros. Automotive We are looking forward to filling the streets of the Nevada City Classic with runners, joggers and walkers alike as they tackle one of the most demanding bike courses in the country on foot for this one-of-a-kind event.
We encourage everyone to support these and all local businesses that support local events. We realize that without community support, Nevada City events cannot be a true success.
