A silent auction to benefit the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund has also been added to the festival, which returns to Clark County Amphitheater on Saturday, Oct. 21.
The largest beer festival in Las Vegas every fall, Downtown Brew offers live music and a nighttime setting under strings of lights and a canopy of stars. Another sellout crowd of more than 4,000 guests is anticipated for the event, which will also showcase incredible culinary offerings in the VIP Pavilion and ‘Festaurant Row.’
The VIP Pavilion, which opens an hour early at 4 p.m., will pour exclusive rare craft beers paired with samplings of cuisine by Chef Joshua Clark. He will prepare popular selections from The Goodwich, his chef-driven sandwich shop that features made-from-scratch ingredients.
More than 60 breweries are on tap to pour nearly 200 craft beers. Local breweries include PT’s, Record Street Brewing Company, Banger Brewing, Hop Nuts Brewing, Tonopah Brewing Co., Big Dog’s Brewing Company, Lovelady Brewing Company and more. Out-of-state brewers include: Hop Valley Brewing, from Eugene, Ore.; Stone Brewing, from Escondido, Calif.; Latitude 33 Brewing, from Vista, Calif.; College Street Brewing, from Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; Shades of Pale Brewing, from Park City, Utah and others.
