Big Dog’s Brewing Company’s Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness Beer & Music festival is just a week away!

All draft beers will be available for tastings, while supplies last.  Using your commemorative Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness tasting mug - required for beer tastings and available for just $2 at the event, you will order your beer by number from one of our friendly bartenders and let us know if you would like a ¼ pour ($1 for 3.5 ounces), ½ pour ($2 for 7 ounces) or a full pour ($4 for 14 ounces).

We are also excited to announce our “special tastings” that will take place throughout the event.  We have procured a small amount of several delicious bottled beers (1 or 2 cases of each).  Again, some of these beers have never been seen in Las Vegas!  At designated times throughout the event, we will be cracking open these bottles and pouring quarter pours ($2 for 3.5 ounces).  When they are gone, they are gone!

  • Stone Sublimely Self Righteous (3:30)
  • Joseph James Hop Box IPA (4:00)
  • Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA (4:30)

Plus... we are still working on a couple more special brews that we hope we will be able to have available.

Not sure if you were counting, but that is 30+ different beers including 22 different IPAs that you can enjoy.  The fun officially starts at 3 pm, but don’t be surprised if we are pouring beer and serving up BBQ by 2 pm.  The music starts at 3pm and will last into the night!

Here are some more tips and sneak peeks for Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness:

  • Be sure to stop by our token booth when you first arrive.  That is where you will get your tasting mug and your drink/food tokens that are required for our food and beverage tent.  Tokens are worth $1 and can also be used inside on the day of the event if you would rather order off of the menu.  We have made it easy for you and will be accepting cash or credit cards at the token booth.  Gift cards, Rewards and coupons are not valid for the outdoor event.
  • Also available at the token booth is our commemorative Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness 2010 t-shirt.  Supplies are limited, but this is one groovy t-shirt you will want to have in your collection.  Wanna have your t-shirt on BEFORE the event?  They are also on sale at your neighborhood Big Dog’s right now!  $15 for S-XL.  $17 for 2XL.  $19 for 3XL.
  • The food menu is very yummy and compliments the beer selection nicely.  Chef Sergio is cooking up a delicious grilled tri-tip BBQ sandwich, a pulled Chicken BBQ sandwich and a grilled Andouille Sausage BBQ sandwich.  Also available:  Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chile Lime Butter, Big Watermelon Wedges, Cherry Popsicles and Groovy Brownies.
  • Our charity raffle is going to be smoking hot.  We have some really, really cool prizes including a Sony High Def Big Screen, a Blue Man Group Show/Dinner/Limo package, Airfare w/Game Tickets to a San Diego Chargers football game, dinners to local restaurants, passes to Pole Position Raceway, tuition to Big Dog’s Brew School 4, Big Dog’s gift cards, Growler Prize packs, Big Dog’s t-shirts and hats, keg certificates, and more!  Tickets are just $2 each and all proceeds benefit the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation and the Old Vegas Youth Basketball foundation, two great local youth charities.  The Grand Prize is a customized Les Paul, Jr. Gibson Guitar that has been customized in honor of the event.  All drawing winners must be present to win their prize, except for the Gibson Guitar drawing.   The winner does not need to be present for that drawing.
  • Speaking of smoking hot, we are also rolling out our new special edition posters.  Featuring beautiful ladies, a classic Cadillac, our mascot Magnum, and our award-wining brewery, we will be selling the posters for the very first time during Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness.  Great collector items!  Posters are $5 each or 3 posters for $10.  We have six great designs to choose from, including a very special inagural Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness design.  $2 from the sale of each poster goes to the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation and the Old vegas Youth Basketball foundation.
