“STEAL THE GLASS” WEDNESDAYS CELEBRATE LOCAL CRAFT BEERS AT EUREKA! IN DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS
Supporting the proliferating craft beer scene in Las Vegas is not only a priority for downtown’s Eureka! but also a point of pride for the dynamic restaurant and bar in the heart of Fremont East. To highlight the region’s bustling local brew scene, the restaurant spotlights a different brewery every Wednesday for “Steal the Glass.” For this weekly occasion, Eureka! partners with a local craft brewery to create branded glassware for guests to take home when they order the featured craft beer of the day. The experience can include one featured beer or a “tap takeover” where the brewery taps multiple beers from a featured brewer. “Steal the Glass” takes place from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. every Wednesday while supplies last.
Of the 40 craft taps at Eureka!, more than half belong to local breweries that brew-seeking Las Vegans continue to support such as CraftHaus, Hop Nuts Brewing and Tenaya Creek Brewery. From balanced malts to hop-heavy profiles, the tap collection features lager, IPA, wheat, stout, cider and everything in between. The menu also includes seasonal varietals, special brews, Hawaiian lagers and the Eureka! staple Orange Wheat from Hanger 24 Craft Brewery in Redlands, California, the location of the brands first-ever restaurant.
“Offering the variety of local brews that we have allows us to give guests a ‘Las Vegas a beer tour’ where they can try all of the outstanding brews that the city has to offer in one place, while also acting as an additional purveyor for the smaller breweries to expose their small-batch brews to a larger audience. It’s a win-win,” says Stephen Farmer, general manager, Eureka!.
Local brewery selections include:
- Las Vegas Lager by Big Dog’s Brewing Co.
- Silver State by CraftHaus Brewery
