Downtown Brew Festival

America was founded on ideals. That we’re a nation rooted in liberty. In justice. In the American Dream. The liberty to crack frosty brews whenever we want. The justice of fighting a hot day with a cold one straight out of the cooler. The dream of bringing in the finest beer from all over the world and developing an unmatched craft brewery industry.

On this Fourth of July weekend, we’re more American than Bob Seger driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile down Rodeo Drive. That’s pretty darn American, buster. Which means we’re going to celebrate in that most American of ways. With beer. Buckets, and buckets of beer.

Do it like us. Do it … for America. downtownbrewfestival.com.

We know we missed you over this past year. What we didn’t know was just how much you missed us. VIP tickets to Downtown Brew Fest are already SOLD OUT.

Gone.

Sayonara.

Dunzo.

Early entry is still available, which gets you a glorious extra hour to be surrounded by beer under a cool October sky, feeling the hum that only can come from being surrounded by a gang of like-minded legends. Grab ‘em now before they go bye-bye, too, at downtownbrewfestival.com.

After nearly two years since our last festival, we are doing that thing on October 16. We are bringing you the Downtown Brew Festival. The house is full at Knights games. The Strip is packed day and night. It is time to *gather*, people.

A sea of hops. A mountain of malt. A butt-ton of barley. It goes down Oct. 16 at the Clark County Amphitheater and tickets go on sale TOMORROW at 10 a.m.

We were so excited about live events we went into a ticket-buying frenzy and ended up with passes to Polkaroo 2021 and the International Spatula Con. Didn’t even remember doing it. Hit up downtownbrewfestival.com and beat the rush.

Sharpen Your Drinking Fangs

The Golden Tiki’s resident mad scientist, Adam Rains, is brewing up something special for Halloween times. Get a load of the Vampiro, made with spooky Alma de Agave Tequila. And everyone at the live event gets one. We can’t promise you you’ll be able to turn into a bat after drinking this, but we’re not promising you *won’t* turn into a bat, either. Can you afford not to take a shot?

Trick or Two Treats

Like Freddy Kruger with a Zagnut, we’re going a little sweet and a little salty. Sure, you’re geared up for our doPPElbock release with Big Dog’s. But wait, there’s more: a candy bacon pairing with that brew. Get some pig for your pour when you nab a spot at one of our three seatings Oct. 24. Just don’t dip the bacon in the beer. Or do. We’re not the boss of you.

You’re Seeing DoPPEl

In the year of PPE, and Motley Brews and Big Dog’s have teamed up for a spanking-new limited release: doPPElbock. It’s everything that’s good and right to top off a Motley-meets-2020 celebration.

Come meet up with us in person Oct. 24, or join us on the livestream Nov. 7 so we can finally get together and drink some damn beers, the way nature intended.

Motley family, thank you for your patience during these times. We wanted to give a quick update that we will be making announcements next week about new festival dates, our new loyalty program and anyone that may need a refund. We’ve been working for months on options with the venue and the City of Las Vegas, and we will have a definitive direction next week that we will put out in email and social media with options. Until then, please stay safe and have a great Memorial Day weekend.

An update on the Great Vegas Festival of Beer from our founder.

03/13/2020

Motley Friends, we realize that everyone has concerns about the current situation and we wanted to take a moment to discuss. We are looking at all options and sifting through information, and a lot of you are asking us to keep the event rolling. Regardless of the outcome we're intent on producing this year's 10th Anniversary of Great Vegas and making it a safe and fun affair, even if we happen to need to move it to a date in the near future. We know that being Motley means staying calm and strong; we’ve gotten through tough times together over the past 10 years, and this will be no different...we are Great Vegas.

We understand that some people have concerns about travel plans, and we will update you by next Tuesday, March 17th with what our plan is. In the meantime, stay safe and we'll be sharing a cold one or two soon enough.

CraftHaus at Great Vegas 10 Year Anniversary

Two tasting rooms, a whole lot of beer festivals and thousands of gallons of beer later, Wyndee and Dave Forrest of CraftHaus have seen an explosion over the last decade of Great Vegas fests. It might have been the hot ticket 10 years ago for the lonely beer geek, but now the craft beer revolution is for you, the beer geek with lots of cool friends you turned into other beer geeks.

DISCOUNTS extended through FRIDAY!

You want a full-on dance party with headphones one? You’re going to Brooklyn Bowl's Silent Disco. That’s just how it works out here in these streets. You want a full-on dance party at the biggest outdoor party of the spring? You’re still going to Brooklyn Bowl's Silent Disco. If you're not there with at least 100 people rocking to songs only they/you can hear by the end of the night, we’re going to be disappointed. Choose greatness and grab those ducats, because prices go up tomorrow!

Friday is the LAST DAY for discounts

Holy aching thirst deep in your liver, Batman! We’re just a month away from going HAM on hops at Great Vegas. Can you stand it? We can’t stand it. What are you doing to pass the time between now and then? We’re thinking a strenuous workout regimen, slavishly adhered to, will have us in tip-top shape by showtime. Some light work on pilsners to warm up, and really build our way to porters and stouts. Gettin’ swole out here. And remember, this Thursday is the LAST DAY to get discounted tickets!

No Beer, No Fear

We get it. Not everyone’s a beer person. We got you, kid. Don’t let your non-beer friends miss out on the party, because we’ve got plenty of libations for tastes of any stripe. Like Wild Tonic and their boozy kombucha, and straight-out-of-Finland The Long Drink. That’s a bubbly mix of grapefruit and gin that’ll have you saying “MMMmm, that’s Nokia!” Hey, cut us a break... but It's nice to add to our knowledge of all-things Finnish above and beyond just Erik Haula.

GREAT VEGAS PRICES INCREASE 3/6

Get it Moving, Kids

If you haven’t locked down your Great Vegas tickets, now’s the time. Prices go up March 6. That’s just two weeks away, and getting closer to selling out. So your choice here looks like you can lock up a cheaper spot to the festivities, wait and pay more for festivities, or risk going festivity-less entirely. Would really be a waste of perfectly good festivities, if you ask us.

Meet Your VIP Chefs

Great Vegas VIP tickets are still on sale, but you’d be wise to snap them up ASAP because we’re bringing in a pair of ridiculously great chefs to dish up bites in the VIP area. Matt Meyer of Served and A Family Secrets' Eric Hobbie are stepping up to the plates. We feel like it’d be disrespectful to NOT eat every single thing of theirs we can get our grubby paws on, and we have no intention of being that rude.

Weirdness is Underrated

Zappos delivered a metric ton of happiness the last two Great Vegas festivals. First it was their Brewtique featuring the finest pretzel jewelry this side of Bavaria; then the epic beer/pretzel statues that starred in all your selfies from last year. What do they have planned this year? Beer-swilling real-live unicorn? POSSIBLY.

Mad Craft > Enchanted Tiki Room

Oh kids, you are going to want to bust out your Hawaiian-est of Hawaiian shirts and set your sails during Mad Craft. Golden Tiki’s pineapple wizard Adam Rains will lead the charge for a 10-mixologist tiki throwdown to see just which witch doctor puts the lime square in the coconut. If you ain’t half pirate by the end of this, you’ve failed us completely.

Every Beer in the Multiverse

Well, not EVERY beer. We don’t have ham porter or a gose flavored by the vague satisfaction of being moderately productive on a Sunday morning. But ALMOST every beer. Or at least what more than 100 different breweries like Ryan Reaves’ 7Five Brewing, Belgian worldbeaters Delirium and so many more.

Welcome to the Fam

New for 2020? Silver Moon Brewing out of Bend, Ore. They’ve been at it for 20 years, holding it down in the Pacific Northwest, which is impressive, considering Bigfoot could’ve busted in and drank everything at any given moment. Cheers, Silver Moon. For both brewing rad beer, and for keeping Bigfoot at bay all these years.

Meet Your Mad Craft Chefs

Mad Craft is gearing up for a kickin' 2020, and we’ve got a quintet of some of the finest culinary stalwarts in Las Vegas to ever strap on a chef’s coat. We’re talking chefs like Mexican and BBQ genius Mike Minor, fellow BBQ master Phillip Dell, and farm-to-table innovator Roy Ellamar among others. We ain’t gonna stop eating until we bite clean through at least two fingers.

Lay Down the Boogie

Who needs a bumping speaker system to get their groove going? Not you, Kemosabe. Slap on a pair of headphones and let the DJ do his thing while you shake it during the Brooklyn Bowl Silent Disco. Just you and a couple dozen friends working that beat while everyone else has to watch and imagine what you’re listining to. Pro tip: They’re imagining “All-Star.” That’s all right. You got your game on. Go play.
