Golden Knights’ Ryan Reaves gets brewery approved in Las Vegas

The Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday approved a liquor manufacturing license for 7Five Brewing, the company co-founded by Golden Knights right winger Ryan Reaves.

“This company is not a celebrity endorsement. While it is about me, it’s also about the great people of Las Vegas,” Reaves told the council. “I’ve only been here for two years, and I’ve realized that the city has so much culture and so many stories to tell, and through our branding and marketing, we plan on telling a lot of those stories.”

The brewery will be located at 1510 S. Main St. in Ward 3, represented by new Councilwoman Olivia Diaz.

Diaz lauded Reaves and the Golden Knights for bringing excitement to the city.

“You’ve captured our hearts and you’ve brought us together as a city that’s more united,” she said, “so I really feel that you’ll bring that spirit as well to your new establishment.”

Reaves, a 10-year NHL veteran, said he planned to brew with Able Baker, a local businessman in the industry who developed Training Day Golden Ale in partnership with 7Five Brewing. The beer has been available during Knights games at T-Mobile Arena.

Reaves, 32, applauded city officials for their assistance as he sought the license and even ribbed Councilman Stavros Anthony for maintaining Detroit Red Wings memorabilia in his office: “I don’t think that belongs anywhere near Las Vegas,” he joked.

Mayor Carolyn Goodman first welcomed Reaves to speak to the dais, underscoring that officials were “so thrilled” he decided to open up a business in the city’s core.

“We are so happy and proud you’re making this investment in downtown,” she said. “You will never regret it, I can assure you.”

He shoots, he SCORES!

Congratulations Ryan, I'm so happy for you and your new company. This city needed healing two years ago and you and your team did just that. I believe our Knights were the missing piece to our puzzle that managed to fill a little bit of the void we all felt and still feel over such a devastating loss. Cheers to you and your new business adventure. Side note: I love hockey. I grew up in LA as a competitive figure skater with brothers who both played hockey. I've been watching hockey since the age of 7. I'm glad our city has embraced such a beautiful, fluid sport. Can't wait for season 3!
