LAS VEGAS Motley Brews brings a new level of craft beer immersion at Las Vegas’ largest fall craft beer event with an elaborate lineup consisting of more than 200 craft brews presented by more than 60 breweries during the Downtown Brew Festival at Clark County Amphitheater on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Attracting more than 3,000 beer enthusiasts, the annual festival features samplings from around the world.  Tapping into Las Vegas’ own beer market, Motley Brews has collaborated with the Nevada Craft Brewers Association to feature rare and exclusive beers from local favorites including Joseph James Brewing Company, Banger Brewery, Chicago Brewing Company, Tenaya Creek Brewery, Big Dog’s Brewing Company, and many others from around Nevada.

Since the success of Motley Brews’ Great Vegas Festival of Beer and previous Downtown Brew Festivals, more breweries from beyond the city have joined in to support the growth of craft beer in Nevada as well.  Notable newcomers to the festival include Victory Brewing Company, Southern Pennsylvania’s premiere and nationally-celebrated craft brewery, which just made its Las Vegas debut, along with Stone Brewing Company, The Lost Abbey, Port Brewing Company, Ninkasi Brewing, Golden Road Brewing, Laughing Dog Brewing and Clown Shoes Beer.

Specialty and seasonal brews available at the festival include Storm King Imperial Stout, from Victory Brewing Company; Bel-Gin, a Belgian Dubbel aged in gin barrels from Joseph James Brewing Company; Mongo IPA, from Port Brewing Company; a cask of Hop Ride IPA, infused with grapefruit peel from Tenaya Creek Brewery; and many more.
