Vegas, a city not typically known for quality brews but rather bottle service and expensive alcohol, is starting to embrace beer culture. A while back, a year-long beer festival was announced for the empty land behind Flamingo (it has since been postponed), Vegas 7 just hosted a beer festival, and now Oktoberfest is coming to the Tropicana.
Now, Oktoberfest is typically held in September not October, but that isn’t stopping the Tropicana. From October 20 to October 30, Oktoberfest will be alive and well on the Las Vegas Strip. As you can see by the website, details aren’t announced and with the event only a month away, I can only presume that it is because this is being planned late.
I am going to be in Vegas anyway on the weekend of October 22, so you better bet I will be attending this. I am hoping for many many liters of beer, lots of pretzels and maybe even some lederhosen. I’m also excited this is happening at the Tropicana, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots on the strip.
Even more important, it is NOT being held at the very lame Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas (which is nothing like the real-deal in Munich). Let me know if you plan on attending! Prost!
