Hi Readers,

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review!

Have you seen our new Drink section yet? Beer expert Marc Tiar is on a mission to school us on Reno's thriving beer and spirits culture. This week he makes a practically irresistible case for the resurging art of sour beers.

Megan Berner introduces the sewn X-rays and MRI images of artist Paula Chung, whose work is on display at Truckee Meadows Community College. Music writer Kent Irwin gets us acquainted with Lil Traffic, a hip-hop artist with an upcoming Christmas show, and theater critic Jessica Santina's Arts & Culture piece is a guide to Reno's holiday stage productions.

For this week's feature story, I took a look back at the ACLU of Nevada's first 50 years of upholding our civil liberties, including the groups's post-election efforts, and in 15 Minutes, I talked with Reno man who spent some time at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

Don't forget to pick up a paper copy at your favorite bar, cafe or good old fashioned box on the street. And thank you for reading!

Wishing you a healthy, safe and fun holiday ramp-up season,

Kris Vagner

Arts Editor
