Golden Nugget Hosts First Annual Fall Beer Festival

The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino will host their first annual Fall Beer Festival during a two-day event on October 15 & 16.

This two-day festival brings together consumers, craft beer vendors, live music, great food and hundreds of beers in two very different events.

The first event kicks off Friday, October 15, with the Great American Craft Beer Tasting sponsored by Samuel Adams, from 7-10 P.M. in The Grand events center. Guests will have the opportunity to sample over 300 craft beer selections and enjoy chef-inspired appetizers while listening to live music and mingling with some of America’s hottest award-winning brew masters. One of the highlights of the evening will be the traditional “tapping of the kegs” featuring twelve seasonal artisan draft beers. Additionally, each guest will receive a commemorative glass as a souvenir. Tickets to the event can be purchased individually for $50*.

Rounding out the second day, guests will enjoy a traditional Oktoberfest Pool Party sponsored by Paulaner at the property’s award-winning pool and shark aquarium, The Tank, October 16 from 3-9 P.M. Admission is free and beer enthusiasts can enjoy 200 different international and domestic beers available for purchase while listening to an authentic German Oktoberfest band.

As an added incentive, guests adorned in their sexiest beer maiden costumes will receive $10 in food and beer tickets and will be entered to win $1,000 cash during the Miss Oktoberfest costume contest at 6 P.M. Guests interested in both events can receive discounted food and beer tickets for Saturday’s Oktoberfest Pool Party with paid admission to Friday’s Great American Craft Beer Tasting.
