Brewers needed for Las Vegas beer fest

Local beer fests are great and I try to attend as many of them as I can possibly can. But now I hear there is an effort underway to draw dozens of breweries from around the west to attend a brand new beer fest being planned for 2009 in the Las Vegas area. Sound like a fun idea? Heck ya. That's what I thought too.

But if this new event is going to take off it's going to need the help of our local breweries to participate. So I'm asking all my loyal readers for your help. If you'd like to see a huge beer fest take place out near Las Vegas each year, stop by your local brewery and tell them about this planned upcoming event. Read below for the details on this Vegas event.

"Las Vegas deserves more beer festivals – doesn’t every town? Reno based Buckbean Brewing Company and MonteLago Village have teamed up to turn the village’s backdrop of Lake Las Vegas into the perfect setting for their first annual craft beer festival.

Buckbean Brewing Company is inviting craft brewers and breweries from the Las Vegas area as well as brewers from all over the US.

The festival is expected to draw large crowds in this first year, and will be held March 14, 2009 at MonteLago Village at Lake Las Vegas. Buckbean and MonteLago are expecting to have anywhere from 30 to 40 breweries/brewers participate. Tickets to the festival will sell for $20 for the day and a commemorative sampling glass will be provided with each ticket purchase.

Brewers are reminded Buckbean encourages them to bring their own pourers and equipment. Discounted rooms will be offered to brewers as well.

All profits from the event will be donated to a non profit organization which is still being decided. "

Interested brewers please contact Patti Dath at Buckbean Brewing Company at or at 775.857.4444

Let's make this event happen! I'd love to go to Vegas in 2009 and party with dozens of regional brewers. This event could easily draw thousands of beer fans and breweries from all over the country. All it takes is for us to help spread the word.
