Renowned international brewery BrewDog celebrated its Las Vegas grand opening over the weekend with its biggest giveaway to date. On Friday morning, BrewDog celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting with Clark County Commission Chair Jim Gibson, who presented a proclamation to the team. On Friday evening, BrewDog opened to the public, awarding one lucky guest a $1 million dollar bar tab. On Saturday evening, BrewDog hosted a free rooftop performance from rock band, We Are Scientists.
On Friday evening, a queue of approximately one thousand guests built up surrounding the all-new BrewDog on the Las Vegas Strip. Scottish bagpipers, an homage to BrewDog’s Scottish roots, welcomed guests along Las Vegas Boulevard and Elvis was also in the building, an homage to BrewDog’s first location in Las Vegas and the brewery’s top-selling beer in the United States, Elvis Juice. Leading up to the $1 million dollar bar tab prize, BrewDog raffled off a variety of prizes, including a $100 bar tab, an epic dinner for four and a stay at BrewDog’s hotel, DogHouse—the world’s first craft beer hotel, located in Columbus, Ohio.
BrewDog Founder and CEO James Watt asked the crowd for a drumroll as he pulled the winning guest number and presented the $1 million dollar bar tab with an oversized check to Jeffrey Appleby of Las Vegas, a once-in-a-lifetime prize. Appleby jumped onto the bar to accept his prize before buying everyone at BrewDog a round of beers as the crowd chanted his name, “Jeff, Jeff, Jeff!” Wheelbarrows of Elvis Juice and other BrewDog favorites were distributed to the crowd, as Appleby spent over $27,000 of his million dollar tab that evening purchasing everyone on-site a round. His winnings may be used at any of the 119 BrewDog locations around the world, including BrewDog hotels, for the next 20 years.
Located on the third and fourth floors of the Showcase Mall on Las Vegas Blvd., BrewDog Las Vegas offers 360-degree views of The Strip, a menu with Vegas-exclusive bites, 96 taps featuring BrewDog brews, local favorites and non-alcoholic options, retro arcade games and more.
BrewDog’s standout feature is a 30,000-square-foot rooftop bar with extraordinary views of The Strip. Unique to the location is a custom-fabricated 30-foot illuminated sign set atop the fourth-floor rooftop. As the name suggests, BrewDog is dog-friendly, complete with K9 hydration stations and treats for furry friends.
With an almost 360-degree view of the Las Vegas skyline, guests won’t want to miss BrewDog’s New Year’s Eve packages, available for purchase online here. BrewDog Las Vegas is now open from Sunday – Thursday 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. For more information and bookings, please visit BrewDog’s website at www.Brewdog.com/lasvegas.
