The Countdown Begins . . .

The Great Vegas Festival of Beer Returns 4/21

Parched craft beer lovers will get their fix on April 21st, 2012, when Las Vegas’ luxurious Tivoli Village will once again be transformed into a desert oasis where the beer flows as freely as the reggae/island music pumping into the crowd of thirsty brew lovers.

Nearly three times as large as the original and sponsored by Mark-Taylor, the event welcomes thousands of locals who will taste their way through more than 150 of the finest brews from across the country while tunes blast from two stages with a portion of ticket proceeds benefitting area nonprofits.

New to the brew-ha-ha is a Motley Brews “Get Hopped Up” section just for hops lovers! Guests will sample from a selection of premium IPAs and other hop-forward brews.

Paying homage to the beer gods who make craft beer possible, a private VIP Brewer’s Lounge will be a mix-n-mingle spot for the makers themselves (presented by Big Dog’s Brewing Co. and Petra Taverna). After the event, Petra Taverna will host an official post-festival party.

Event organizers have streamlined last year’s logistics by adding mutiple express entry lines for paid ticket holders and additional maintenance staff to ensure speedy service and spotless grounds.
