Las Vegas' Original Brewery

Welcome to Las Vegas!

Craft Brewers Conference Week Events

Welcome to our great city...

Viva Las Vegas!

We are beyond excited to welcome you to our city and hope that you take the time to visit our surrounding community.  While “The Strip” is certainly iconic and famous around the world, it our neighborhoods and people that make this a great place to live.  Big Dog’s Brewing Company is the oldest of Southern Nevada’s breweries, having originally set up shop back in 1993 on Las Vegas Blvd and moved to its current location in 2003.  Our facility is also the largest brewpub in the city, with indoor and outdoor seating for over 400 folks. Just a quick 15 minute drive from the resort zone, our brewpub will be a great place to hang over the coming week.  Not only are we rolling out some special beers we made just for CBC week, we are also hosting a calendar of special events including live music nightly and pouring a full slate of Nevada-born beers from our new beer container that makes it debut for CBC!

...Kick it off with a Beer Fest!

Come On, Get Hoppy!

Our 15th annual Peace, Love & Hoppiness Fest returns on Saturday, April 20th for a night of spectacular brews, tasty BBQ sandwiches, classic rock and roll music, charitable raffles and much more!  “Peace, Love & Hoppiness Fest” pays homage to hop-forward beers and bold BBQ flavors. We feature bold IPAs and Double IPAs from around the country and gear this festival towards our loyal hop hounds.

Big Dog’s Brewing Company hosts two seasonal beer festivals at its brewery location at 4543 North Rancho Drive in Las Vegas, NV.  These beer festivals are always free to attend.  You just pay for your food and beverage as you go throughout the event!  Each of these on-site events always feature 50+ independent craft beers including 25 #NevadaBorn drafts from Silver State breweries, tasty food choices that pair deliciously well with the beers, live music, raffles, giveaways and a charitable component supporting the brewery’s favorite causes.  While parking is available on-site, it is limited.  We encourage you to carpool or use ride share services.  These beer and music-centric festivals have become annual affairs that our loyal followers look forward to every year. 

Fun Fact: Our signature Peace, Love & Hoppiness Pale Ale was named AFTER we had already hosted several years of the Peace, Love & Hoppiness Fest!

Guests are encouraged to shorten their wait time in the ticket line by buying their festival packages in advance.  We will be debuting our CBC special brews and collaborations at this year’s PLH FEST event.

Dubbel Dog Dare – Belgian Dubbel – 7.0% ABV!  Collaboration with Country Malt Group. Our take on a classic Belgian-style Dubbel.

You will notice a multitude of characteristics including dark fruit, treacle, banana, brown sugar, caramel, cocoa, toast and slight spice. It will pour crisp due to it’s higher carbonation levels, have a balanced bitterness due to the use of European hops, and will have a touch of sweetness on the finish. This is a very delicate yet complex brew that can pleasantly surprise many palates.
