Frosty Beer
Thirsty yet?

Beer Fest weekend starts with an Oktoberfest Pool Party at the Golden Nugget’s pool, The Tank, Oct. 9, from 8-10:00 p.m. Admission’s free and offers guests a selection of more than 100 American craft beers, as well as traditional Oktoberfest food and entertainment.

GN Shark Tank
Yes, that The Tank.

Next up is a Craft Beer Grand Tasting on Oct. 10, 7-10:00 p.m. in the hotel’s Grand Event Center. Guests may sample more than 125 craft beers from some of America’s award-winning breweries. Also on tab will be chef-inspired appetizers, entertainment and interactions with brew masters.

Another great aspect of Beer Fest 2015 is Golden Nugget has partnered with The Animal Foundation, a local Las Vegas animal shelter, to donate $5 from every ticket purchased to the Craft Beer Grand Tasting. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as drinking for a paws. Sorry, cause.

Happy Dog
Rest assured, no beer was involved with capturing this photo of an actual Animal Foundation rescue dog. They’re just like that.

Guests interested in both the pool party and grand tasting can take advantage of a special discount (discounted food and beer tickets for the pool party with paid admission to the grand tasting).

Ticket and room packages are also available. For more information on the Sixth Annual Fall Beer Fest, visit the official site or call (866) 946-5336.
