3 Cheers for Charity!

Something very cool happens each and every Thursday at your neighborhood Big Dog's... When you purchase a Big Dog's Brew each Thursday, you not only receive a delicious, award-winning hand crafted beer to enjoy, but you also receive a wooded Big Dog's Brewing Co. token.

What in the world is the Wooden Nickel for? Every Thursday at your neighborhood Big Dog’s, we celebrate 3 Cheers for Charity!  For each Big Dog’s Brew you buy, Big Dog’s will donate 25¢ to a charity of your choice.  As you enjoy your Big Dog’s Brew, we give you a wooden nickel for each beer you buy throughout the day and night, every Thursday.   Each token represents a 25¢ donation.  At each entrance, you will see a wooden box at each door.  Each box has 3 slots, one for each of our featured charities.

The featured charities will change from time to time.  All are good causes worthy of your support.  It’s easy - on your way out the door, just place the tokens you’ve received in the wooden box in the slot designated for your charity of choice.  We’ll take care of the rest.

Our current featured charities:

Three Square

The vision of Three Square is simple: No one in our community should be hungry. By bringing together the resources, experience and passion of the people and businesses of Southern Nevada, we can make sure no one has to. We provide bakery, produce, dairy, non-perishable products and ready-to-eat meals to non-profit and faith-based organizations. We also facilitate childhood and senior nutrition programs. Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with the gaming industry, businesses, non-profit agencies, food distributors, UNLV, the CCSD, governmental entities, the media and hundreds of volunteers to efficiently and effectively serve hope to the hungry.
