52 Beers to Taste!
Curious about a beer but don't want an entire glass? No Worries! One of the many great things about the Big Dog's Beer Fests is how they give you the opportunity to sample so many different beers in a single setting. You can taste a particular beer with a quarter pour (4 oz.) for as little as $1. Want just a half glass? No problem. A 1/2 pour is available for as little as $2. A full glass can be had, starting at $4. It's your choice!
When you purchase your festival glass, you wil also receive a written beer menu. Use it to plan your day on what you want to taste or sample! There are also large menu boards throughout the event that you can refer to. Map out your strategy ahead of time. Help keep the lines moving. Step right up to the beer booth and order by number and the size of the pour! Enjoy your beer. Listen to some reggae. Grab some BBQ. Repeat.
Prices do vary by individual beer offered, based on alcohol content and rarity. Supplies are limited on all offered beers.
The beer list for Saturday includes a wide variety of beer styles, including 7 Wheat Beers, 4 Belgian-style Witbiers, 11 IPAs, 2 Ciders, 5 Fruit Beers and More! Click here for the full listing.
Live Reggae All Night Long!
Another great thing about our quarterly beer fests is the free music! We look high and low throughout the year to find some of Vegas' best bands to entertain you on beer fest nights. This time around, there are no exceptions as the cool sounds of reggae take over the Draft House.
