Our first batches of beer started in a modest brewhouse located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Dubbed the name “Holy Cow!” in 1993, it wasn’t until 2003 that we relocated the brewery to its current location just 8 miles northwest of downtown Las Vegas. Today our brewery team works in unison to develop some of the most unique and flavorful beers in Las Vegas. With an emphasis on consistent core brews and exciting seasonal/reserve beers, our brewers continue to put our spin on original, local beer flavor.
Celebrating 10 years in September 2023, Life is Beautiful is Las Vegas’ premier music and arts festival. Attracting more than 1 million fans to Downtown Las Vegas over the festival’s lifespan, the annual 3-day event delivers an eclectic range of immersive experiences including music sets from chart-topping performers, eye-catching art installations, hilarious comedians, culinary showcases, and more. Life is Beautiful was born as part of the major revitalization of Downtown Las Vegas in 2013 and has helped transform the surrounding DTLV community into a bustling destination while contributing over $400M of economic impact and cultural capital to the area. What started as an event has become something more: a symbol of connection, joy and creativity.
