Big Dog's Summer Beer Fest is the place to be this weekend!



July 19th @ Big Dog's Draft House in Las Vegas!  The fun starts at 6 pm!
As with our previous beer and music festivals, admission is absolutely free to come out and enjoy an evening of great music.  If you wish to enjoy the food and beverage offered outside, you will purchase tokens from our sales tent and use those tokens throughout the event to purchase tasters, half pours and full pints of the more than 40 different beers as well as your choice of our BBQ Pork Ribs or Grilled Chicken Sandwich Platters.  
Ultimate Guide to Enjoying Big Dog's Summer Beer Fest & Reggae Party  

  1. So first things first: Step up and get your tokens and your Summer Beer Fest pint glass from our token and retail sales booth. You need both a glass and tokens in order to purchase festival items.  You will find this tent along the front parking lot of Big Dog's Draft House.  
    here to learn about our token packages.    

  2. Use your menu to map out a beer plan!   With over 40 different beer choices, you will want to map out your personal tasting plan.  With each package sold, we also give you a beer menu that lists each available beer with its assigned number and the amount of tokens required to taste a 1/4 glass, 1/2 glass or full glass of the chosen brew.  Click here to learn about the different beers that will be available.   

  3. DO NOT BE AFRAID!  Step right up and order by Number.  
    After you get your glass and tokens, head on over to the food and beverage booth.  It is situated in the southern parking lot at Big Dog's Draft House. It's very casual.  No strict lines to stand in.  Work your way up to the bar and tell the friendly bartender exactly what you what.  "I'll have a 1/4 pour of #6" or "I'll have a 1/2 Pour of #32."

  4. Hungry for our delicious Pork Ribs or Grilled Chicken Sandwich Platters?  The food counter is at the
    far left side of the food and beverage booth. Same as with the beer, just work your way up to the counter and order.  
    Feel free to get a beer at the same time!  Both platters are served with BBQ beans and our traditional cole slaw. 

  5. The music will be flowing throughout the event! 

    We have a great line up to keep you entertained throughout the event, with two great reggae bands!  First up is P. Anthony + Friends from 6-9 pm.  Next up, Big Bamboo will take the stage from 9 pm until Midnight!

  6. Your tokens are also good inside! If you feel like you'd rather   park yourself inside the Draft House and enjoy our always-available stellar menu and beer list instead of the special offerings that are available outside, then that's okay with us, too. Your tokens are worth $1 each for inside purchases on Saturday, July 19th only.  
    Actually, we'll take them until 4 am on the 20th! Of course, you can also save your unused tokens for our DOGtober Beerfest on Saturday, October 11th.  

  7. Support a GREAT local cause - the Patrick Kelley Youth
    The Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation is one of those really great local charities that is making a difference in the Las Vegas community. Their support of local kids is highlighted by their PK Bike Day each March, where they give bikes and helmets to hundreds of local children who otherwise couldn't afford them by rewarding those that have shown exemplary work in school.  We have designated the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation as the recipient of our beer donation... 

    $1 from each pour of the Summer Peach Wheat will be donated directly to the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation. 
    In addition, stop buy and sign up for the Zatify app and they'll make an additional cash donation to this great charity! 

  8. Take a chance to win some great prizes!  Big Dog's will be hosting its traditional Beer Fest Raffle with a ton of great brewery prizes - including cases of Big Dog's bottled beers, Growlers for a year, free food, free t-shirts, gift cards, and more!  We've got two super rare cases of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp collaboration #craftbeers.  We've got great prize packs from New Belgium Brewery and Brooklyn Brewery, as well.  One of our featured raffle prizes is an Apple iPad Mini tablet!  The grand prize is a very cool, one-of-a-kind customized Big Dog's "Summerfest" Epiphone guitar.
    Drawing winners do not need to be present to win but must claim prizes within 48 hours.  

  9. Take home a Big Dog's t-shirt to help you remember the great time you are having at the Summer Beer Fest!

    Be sure to check out our t-shirts we will be featuring for sale out at our token booth. Not only will we be hawking our Summer Beer Fest t-shirts, but we'll also be featuring our all-new Big Dog's "swoosh" t-shirts.  Be sure to check it out.
