As Las Vegas’ largest fall craft beer festival, the event showcased 200 local and regional craft brews. Among those were 11 local breweries, including Joseph James Brewing Company, Banger Brewery, Ellis Island Casino & Brewery, Chicago Brewing Company, Tenaya Creek Brewery, Big Dogs Brewing Company, CraftHaus Brewery, Triple 7 Brewery, Gordon Biersch Brewery and Barley Brewing Company. Victory Brewing Company, presenting sponsor and Southern Pennsylvania’s nationally-celebrated craft brewery, was a notable newcomer to the festival having recently made its Las Vegas debut. Victory Brewing Company’s debut at the festival went off without a hitch, with a Belgian-styled Golden Monkey as one of the crowd favorites.

Adding to the backyard celebration, a variety of hotspots served up a selection of savory dishes to pair with the beers. Throughout the event, Chef Sonia El-Nawal, executive chef for Container Parks’ newest addition, The Perch, treated VIP Pavilion guests to several beer-themed courses inspired by the unique flavors of the craft brews.

Meanwhile, local artists, A Crowd of Small Adventures, Josh Royse and Daniel Park filled the amphitheater with live music.
