Expanding on the traditional craft beer festival, guests will have the opportunity to further explore the versatility of craft beer flavors through amazing dishes created by local chefs and restaurants featured in the Festaurant Row. In addition, beer lovers will have the opportunity to sample over 200 local, regional, and international brews from more than 60 breweries lining the rings of the grassy amphitheater.

“We’re proud that Downtown Brew Festival has become a fixture on the Las Vegas fall event calendar” said Lee Flint, Production Director at Motley Brews. “This year’s fifth anniversary celebration has grown with more craft brews, an elevated VIP experience, incredible dining options and live entertainment throughout the night. There is no event like it in the craft beer world.”

As a follow-up to the sold-out Great Vegas Festival of Beer, which attracted more than 6,000 attendees in record rainfall to downtown Las Vegas this past April, the Downtown Brew Festival offers a more intimate affair, translating to fewer lines, a smaller crowd and more beer to go around. Motley Brews will continue to create the festival’s signature nighttime “backyard” bash aesthetic with a scenic backdrop of downtown Las Vegas and crystal lights illuminating the Clark County Amphitheater.

Setting the mood for the evening, live bands and performers will add to the energy of the night with nonstop entertainment while standing front-and-center on the Land Rover Stage. The festival’s full culinary, entertainment and craft beer lineup will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

2014 Downtown Brew Festival Returns to Clark County Amphitheater with Elevated Culinary and Craft Beer Infusions Saturday, Sept. 20

Las Vegas’ premier fall beer festival adds new ingredients to the mix

                                                                      

 

Motley Brews’ third annual Downtown Brew Festival (DBF) returns to Clark County Amphitheater on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 6 to 10 p.m. with an all-new food focus featuring beer-inspired culinary creations from prominent Las Vegas chefs, paired with local entertainment in a backyard setting.

 

As the sun sets on Las Vegas’ iconic backdrop, the Downtown Brew Festival will become a friendly backyard celebration beneath the stars and a nonstop evening of live entertainment with performances by A Crowd of Small Adventures, Josh Royse and Daniel Park. This year, Las Vegas’ premier fall festival is expanding on the craft beer and backyard motif as local celebrity chefs add a new ingredient to the festival’s overall atmosphere with elevated culinary menus.

 

“Las Vegas’ craft beer industry has really expanded and we are thrilled to be able to provide an opportunity for the community to immerse itself into the lifestyle,” said Brian Chapin, founder of Motley Brews. “There is more to this whole movement than an abundance of craft brews and this year we are going to showcase how the different beers can redefine the culinary experience.”

 

Chefs from a number of culinary hotspots, including Comme Ça, DW Bistro and Forte will heighten the craft beer experience with dishes created specifically to emphasize the flavors and aromas of the featured brews. Chefs will be serving one-of-kind dishes ranging from Crispy Pig Skins with Chile Lime Sea Salt to Smoked Kumamoto Oysters.

 

Adding to the innovative culinary menu, VIP Pavilion guests will be treated to several courses created by Chef Sonia El-Nawal. The former Food Network “Chopped” finalist serves as executive chef for The Perch, which will open at Downtown Container Park in late September, and The Market, an urban grocery scheduled to open at 611 Fremont Street in October. El-Nawal is a veteran chef with experience in such restaurants as Jean-Georges, JoJo, Nobu in New York City and the Hotel Condesa DF in Mexico City, and brings a wealth of beer knowledge from her time spent living in Brussels.

 

“We’re celebrating Downtown and the strides the city is making, and we couldn’t be more excited to have someone like Chef Sonia, who draws from years of international experience to create an incredible culinary scene at this year’s festival,” remarked Chapin.

 

The grassy surroundings of the amphitheater will be lined with more than 50 stations representing more than 150 unique beers, from local, regional, and international breweries. Both Victory Brewing Company, Southern Pennsylvania’s premiere and nationally-celebrated craft brewery, which will soon be making its Las Vegas debut, and  Stone Brewing Co. will make their first appearance at the festival.

 

Tickets are currently on sale and available for General Admission for $35; Early Entry for $45; and VIP for $75 until Tuesday, Sept. 16. A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit The Neon Museum and Nevada Craft Brewers Association (NCBA). For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit the Downtown Brew Festival website.

Nevada Craft Brewers to Create Inaugural Collaboration Ale for Great Vegas Festival of Beer

Nevada Craft Brewers

Nevada Craft Brewers to Create Inaugural Collaboration Ale for
Great Vegas Festival of Beer

Motley Brews is partnering with the Nevada Craft Brewers Association (NCBA) to create its first-ever collaboration beer —dubbed Pyrite Pale Ale—to serve as the official brew at the Great Vegas Festival of Beer.  Local craft brewers will begin the brewing process with a special ceremony on Friday, March 22 and the first keg of Pyrite Pale Ale will be tapped during the festival on Saturday, April 27 at Sunset Park.

Nevada Craft Brewers including Matt Marino of Joseph James Brewing Co., Anthony Gibson of Tenaya Creek Brewery, Dave Otto of Big Dog’s Brewing Co. and David Pascual of Chicago Brewing will gather in the Joseph James Brewery on Friday to begin brewing Pyrite Pale Ale, a process that will take about four weeks to complete.

The brewers aim to create an Extra Pale Ale with about 6.3 percent alcohol content, flavored and dry-hopped for aroma with Simcoe and Amarillo Hops, two hops varieties especially beloved to American Craft Brewers. The resulting ale will be a hoppy, aromatic and bold brew in a deceivingly light and summery body; the perfect complement to the spring festival.

Pyrite Pale Ale will premiere in the NCBA Pavilion at the Great Vegas Festival of Beer, where it will be showcased alongside several special one-off brews from local craft brewers.  The collaboration project represents a community effort engaging the brewers, drinkers and festival-goers.

“Craft beer is really a unifier in communities; local innovation and industry is something everyone can get excited about and enjoy, especially when it’s tasty,” said Motley Brews Founder Brian Chapin.  “Our festival participants are directly supporting local brewers and this is a way for them to say ‘thank you.’ We’re excited to see how it comes out.”

In addition, Motley Brews has launched a contest for beer enthusiasts to get involved by designing the official logo for Pyrite Pale Ale. The winner of the contest will receive VIP tickets to the Great Vegas Festival of Beer.  For more contest information, please visit the Great Vegas Beer Blog.

 

About the NCBA
The Nevada Craft Brewers Association is an extension of the Brewers Association, the official non-profit craft beer advocate in the United States. Motley Brews is excited to designate an area of the festival dedicated to local beer where members of the Nevada Craft Brewers Association will introduce some rare specialty brews made just for the Great Vegas Festival of Beer.
