big dog's DRAFT HOUSE

Your Neighborhood Place to Eat, Drink & Play!

Big Dog’s Draft House is a fun and friendly neighborhood hospitality facility in Las Vegas where the best in food, craft brews, gaming, and exceptional hospitality are served up at all times. Featuring award-winning Big Dog’s Brewing Company brews and delicious Midwestern-inspired cuisine, Big Dog’s Draft House is always a great place for all of your fun occasions.

A Wisconsin-Inspired Tavern in Nevada

The Draft House has been pioneering the idea of a neighborhood tavern that brings together great food, drinks and gaming since 1988.  Our founders – brothers Tom and George Wiesner – hailed form Wisconsin originally  and forged the Draft House in the mold of the great brat houses, sports bars, and supper clubs found back home.  Every time you order our cheese curds, bratwurst, or Walleye, you’re set to enjoy a taste of Wisconsin.

 

 

Neighborhood Casino

Our Big Dog’s Neighborhood Casinos features an unique, grandfathered 35-machine casino license. In addition to more game choices that most other tavern operations, our casino floors legally allow for food, beverage, gaming and smoking, if you are so inclined.  Please Note: Smoking is only permitted at the gaming devices.

Home of Big Dog's Brewing Company

We are the home to Las Vegas’ Original Craft Brewing Company!  In the beginning, Big Dog’s originally was known as Holy Cow! Brewing Company and operated on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip.  In 2003, we packed up and moved to our current location at Big Dog’s Draft House in Northwestern Las Vegas. We’ve expanded our brewery operations four times since and now sell our kegged and canned beers throughout Nevada.

Our Brewery Team: David Pascual, Jamie Roberts, Marshall Lyttle, Sam McKinney, and Jose Solorzano.

 

Family Friendly Big Dog's Tap Room

The Big Dog’s Tap Room offers a more traditional, elevated, family- friendly craft beer experience. In addition to our dining tables, the Tap room features a beautiful new bar featuring 20 taps (many with one-of–kind limited edition brews), a special collection of spirits for sipping, a hang out zone, board and arcade games, local art, enhanced audio and visual capabilities and more!  Open daily, 11 am – 11 pm.

Please note:  While the Tap Room bar offers up a special list of limited edition brews, the full line up of currently available Big Dog’s Brewing Company beers (plus superb local and guest taps) are also available from our main casino bar and can be enjoyed throughout the Draft House facility,.

 

 

Welcome to Lambeau West! Go Pack Go!

Packer Sunday really is a sight to see…your fellow Packer fans, rooting on the Green & Gold, doing the wave around the bar, yelling “First Down!” in unison… Some even come dressed with Packer face paint! Don’t be surprised if you see a stray Bears or Vikings fan, too, making it truly a stadium-like experience…without having to walk up the bleachers or stand in line for a beer!

Each year we sponsor a “Packer Backer” fan club that offers club swag, weekly and season-long drawing entries, discounts, freebies, and more for a nominal membership fee.  Membership slots are limited so be sure to sign up before the season kicks off! Click here for this year’s club information.

Please note:  A limited amount of premium tables are available for reservation for each Packer game.  We ask that you purchase a $100 gift card in advance that can be applied to the tab for the game.  Unused funds carry over and can be used on any future visit.  There are 30+ tables available in a first come, first served basis.  Click here for more information on reserving tables for this year’s games.

 

Beers-To-Go & Swag Store

While Big Dog’s Brews are available throughout Nevada at finer retailers, liquor stores, and bars, the freshest,  most complete, and best priced selection of Big Dog’s offerings are available for purchase directly from the brewery.  Visit our Swag store located conveniently adjacent to the Front Porch Patio, between the neighborhood tavern and the Big Dog’s Tap Room to pick up four packs, growlers, crowlers,  and kegs of Big Dog’s Brews!  While you are at it, check out our collection of swag, including t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, and more.

Dog Friendly Front Porch & Events Plaza

The Front Porch welcomes you to our house – the Draft House! It’s a place to hang out, bring your dog, enjoy some fresh air and have a great time. From mid-March to late November, it also the home for live local music with twice per week musical artist showcases, weekly karaoke under the stars, trivia nights and more!  Our patio is dog friendly and smoke-free!

For the winter season, our karaoke and trivia night programming have transitioned into the Tap Room Barn (8-11 pm).  Music returns traditionally with the St. Patrick’s Day celebration in March.

The patio remain open for food and beverage service. We have many propane heaters available to keep you warm and toasty as the air temperature drops.  Please check-in with the indoor hostess on your arrival so we can assign a server to your table.

Coming Soon: An expanded patio, beer garden and events plaza experience that will bring more opportunities for hanging out with your dogs, enjoying craft beers under the stars, and increased special events.
