Big Dog's Brewing Company

We don’t cut corners.  We don’t skimp on ingredients.  We love hops.  Life’s too short to drink cheap beer.  We get bored easy and try to keep it fresh for ourselves and our guests.  We love to experiment.  We love the local craft beer scene and how much it has changed over the years.  We love dogs.  We love Las Vegas and what it is becoming.  Proud to be Nevadans.  Go Rebels! Go Badgers, too.  Unless, of course, its UNLV vs. Wisconsin… then Go Rebels.  We won’t get upset if you call us Libertarians.  We have a great sense of humor and love a good pun as much as anyone, especially when it comes to naming a new beer.
