We love the free drinks that are so readily available throughout Vegas casinos. Sometimes, we won’t even be playing and will still be offered our favorite beverage by a cocktail sever who knows us too well. The downside to all the freebies comes when we step away from the tables and are reminded that, in the real world, pouring from the tap comes with a tab.
In Vegas casino restaurants, this situation can be especially frustrating. While on the gaming floor, we can drink ourselves silly for next to nothing. Once we step into a restaurant, often just feet away from the nearest slot machine, the comps end and the pricey brews begin. The easy solution, of course, would be to bring in free drinks from the casino floor. The restaurants typically see us coming from miles away, however, and make us finish or trash them prior to entering. A few will let it slide, but most (especially chain restaurants) are strict about their no-outside-drinks policies. We’ve tried every trick in the book to get out of paying for cocktails and will even dash out mid-meal to quickly down a glass if we see our server making her rounds.

The Great Vegas Festival of Beer (GVFB) returns for its third year on April 27. You can sample from a selection of over 200 craft beers. After hosting a sellout crowd in 2012, the GVFB has grown to the point that it had to move its location. GVFB will now take place at the brand new outdoor events center at Sunset Park. Sunset Park is near McCarran Airport and is a short cab ride from the south end of The Strip.
GVFB has grown to be Nevada’s largest celebration of craft beer from local, regional and international breweries and will cater to over 5,000 beer fans this year. Not only did last year's beerfest sell out, but it was insanely packed early on. The crowd will include a good mix of locals and tourists. The GCFB is a legit beer festival run by Motley Brews so you should expect a quality good time with great beer.
