Our Town. Our Brewery. Our Team.

With March Madness officially arriving today, one may have noticed that offices, universities, and even breweries throughout the nation are just a little less productive with college basketball bracketology at fever pitch! Many current residents in Vegas come from all parts of the country, however even transplants can’t help to develop a connection with our hometown team, the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels, as they make their annual pilgrimage to the Big Dance.

It’s true, and we admit it- the Big Dog’s Brewing crew just wasn’t blessed with the proper frame to hit the hardwood, as the average height is 5’10”, and the current beards sported simply aren’t aerodynamic for flight! However, old-school Vegas locals know that they can count on the crew to brew a UNLV basketball-specific beer just for the Road to the Final Four!

As the first recipe brewed in our original Holy Cow Brewing facility on the Las Vegas Strip - which means it was the ORIGINAL beer brewed at Las Vegas's ORIGINAL brewery! - the Big Dog’s Rebel Red ale has a special spot in the hearts of our crew at Big Dog's!  Rebel Red is not your standard amber ale, though- it’s malty, robust, and medium bodied from the caramel, biscuit, and chocolate malts used, but finishes with a zesty, lively finish from the cascade hops!

Available around town both on draft and in bottle, be sure to support your local team and hometown brewery, as you watch your bracket unfold!
