Big Dog’s Brewing Company, local brewery and draft house, is a great place to have a good time, especially if you’re a craft beer lover. There are plenty of fun events at Big Dog’s every week, with live music, trivia and some amazing festivals throughout the year. And if you’re the gambling type, they have a casino as well.
Big Dog’s Brewing Company’s first batches of beer started in a modest brewhouse located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Dubbed the name “Holy Cow!” in 1993, it wasn’t until 2003 that we relocated the brewery to its current location just 8 miles northwest of downtown Las Vegas. Today they develop some of the most unique and flavorful beers in Las Vegas. With an emphasis on consistent core brews and exciting seasonal/reserve beers, their brewers put a new spin on original, local beer flavor.
Here are just some of the upcoming fun events at Big Dogs:
Big Dog’s Festivals
Big Dog’s Summer Beer Fest & Reggae Party is back this weekend. Big Dogs is known for their NV based craft beers and an all around good time. Come out Saturday, July 20th from 5pm-11pm for their Summer Beer Fest celebration of over 50 refreshing summer beers and sizzling live reggae music hosted under the stars.
Just like their previous Summer beer festivals, admission is absolutely FREE to come out and enjoy an afternoon of great, live music. If you wish to enjoy the food and beverage offered outside, you will need to purchase tokens from the sales tent. Subsequently, you can then use those tokens throughout the event to purchase tasters, half pours and full pints of the more than 50+ different beers as well as your choice of one of the delicious BBQ platters. Big Dog’s Draft House is located at 4543 N. Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130.
Along with their Summer Beer Fest, they typically hold a handful of other festivals throughout the year including a Dog-tober Beer Fest & Brat Party (October 26th), Winterfest (Jan 25th, 2020), and a Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness festival in the spring.
