We do offer a full selecton of non-alcoholic soft drinks, juices, and our own homemade Big Dog’s Root Beer.
We always have a nice, but limited selection of wines available by the glass. We do have a small list of wines that we sell by the bottle as well. We try to always have at least one craft cider on tap at all times.
No, we generally are not setup to take reservations except for large parties (insert link to large parties info) and special holiday meals (Thanksgiving). We do offer a service for those that are on our wait list for the dining room/brewery barn where we can text your phone when your table is getting ready for your party. Please check in with our hostess. Bar and casino seats are on a first come, first served basis.
Yes! Guests over 21 may purchase any of our available beers to go. We often offer our signature and seasonal brews for sale in cans and bottles. We even offer a 10% discount when you purchase a case or more. Also, we offer most of our available draft beers to go in freshly poured and sealed growlers (glass bottles) and crowlers (sealed large aluminum cans).

We do offer our signature brews available for sale in kegs for you to enjoy at home. Kegs are sold on an as-available basis. We will try to accommodate your request as best as possible. Some beers are simply not available for keg purchase.

We have a form on our website for making a keg request, Click here to fill it out. We recommend you place your request for a keg pickup at least 3 business days before your needed date and time. We don’t want you to be without quality craft beer at your next get together.

All keg sales require a fully refundable keg deposit of $125.00, which is charged at the time of pickup and returned when you bring the keg back (hopefully empty). In addition, upon request, we can sell you a Bronco Pump for $50.00 plus tax.

We look forward to helping you supply your next event with plenty of quality craft beer from Big Dog’s!

It depends on where you live. Laws for shipping beer vary state by state. To help us keep it straight, we utilize an outdie company (Bevv) to handle all shipped beer sales. They will handle all invoices and billings and we will then ship it you. Click here to get beer delivered.

We currently only sell our products via distributor in the State of Nevada, A limited amount can be shipped to you via our Bevv partnership as long as it is legal for us to do so. Click here to order.

We sell our beers throughout Nevada, including at grocery stores, convenience stores, liquor stores, local restaurants, golf courses, gaming taverns and at world-famous resort hotels. On our website, we have a Beer Finder app where you can find locations near you to grab some Big Dog’s beers. Caveat: Our databaseis not a real-time snapshot and instead includes all partner accounts, even those where the product may not be available at currently.

Our online ordering system is always available 24/7 with most items available. Some items are not sold as togo items (think ice cream-based desserts) and the availability of specials is limited. You can pickup your food at the bar at any time or can ask for a curbside pickup from 11 am – 8 pm daily. We also offer 24/7 delivery through our website using Door Dash. Delivery orders placed through the Big Dog’s website are sold at current menu prices and a $7.50 delivery charge will be added to your check. Delivery area is limited by Door Dash to a 5-mile radius surrounding Big Dog’s Draft House. All online orders are available to earn Big Dog’s Reward points and may be eligible for Rewards Club redemptions and discounts. Also, customer service issues can be easily dealt with by Big Dog’s management staff. Order online here.

Delivery is available through third party delivery companies like Grubhub and UberEats. We support your ability to order through these services especially if the GrubHub and UberEats delivery areas are larger than the 5-mile radius covered by our direct delivery program. However, the third-party delivery menu is always priced higher to accommodate the fees charged to the restaurant by the online services. Third party delivery orders do not earn Big Dog’s Rewards points and any customer service issues must be handled via the delivery apps. When possible, we encourage everyone to utilize the ordering offered through our website.

We love to support the community and the many great things that happen in Southern Nevada. Our approach to charitable giving is based on a steady stream of activities and promotions where small, consistent donations add up to larger support over time.

Here’s just a sampling of the organizations we support:

  • Three Square Food Bank
  • Keep Memory Alive/Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health
  • Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation
  • Candlelighters Nevada
  • The Animal Foundation
  • Susan G. Komen
  • Southern Nevada Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
  • Candlelighters
  • Nevada Public Radio
  • Nevada Craft Brewers Association

Our largest charitable commitment is to Keep Memory Alive/Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. Along with our partners with Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits, a portion of each case and keg sold at retail accounts throughout Nevada is donated to this great, world-renowned charity. To date, this support has exceeded $50,000 and grows with every keg and case sold at neighborhood stores, bars, and restaurants.

Also, each of our quarterly on-ste beer festivals has a charitable component where we raise money and awareness for the designated charitity.

Big Dog’s is a great place for large group gatherings. While renting out our patio and brewery barn for private events are certainly possibilities, generally we are a better site for semi-private gatherings such as going away, retirement, celebration of life, birthday and graduation parties. We can fine tune a program to exactly what you are looking for including hosted bars, buffet menus, drink specials, beer tasting presentations and more! Please complete the Large Events form to start the process of planning your special event. View the private event form.

Smoking is allowed only at the gaming devices at the bar in our casino. It is not allowed at any table, in public areas, in the dining room/brewery barn or in our outdoor patio areas.
