The Las Vegas Motley Brews’ Downtown Brew Festival returns for its fifth anniversary to the Clark County Amphitheater on October 22 from 5 to 9 p.m., with doors opening to VIP and Early Entry ticketholders at 4 p.m. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy a selection of more than 200 craft beers presented by over 60 local, national and international breweries; listen to non-stop live music and discover craft beer-inspired menu items, available for purchase on Festaurant Row. 

“Each year we challenge some of Las Vegas’ most celebrated chefs to create innovative menu items you can’t find anywhere else,” says Brian Chapin, founder of Motley Brews. “The local beer and culinary communities really come together to help create a festival environment that is about more than just great beer, but an all-encompassing experience that stimulates all the senses.”

With the return of some of Las Vegas' favorite restaurants, beer-lovers will see some new faces on Festaurant Row to help celebrate the landmark year with mouthwatering dishes to satisfy every palate. Some of Las Vegas’ most recognized restaurants will gather together in one location, offering festival goers the unique opportunity to taste dishes from SLO-Boy, QFS Tacos, Mochiko Chicken, Oming's Kitchen, PT's Brewing Co., Donut Bar, and Naked City Tavern.

As if the artfully crafted beer, live music and Downtown views weren't enough, the DBF is offering an unmatched VIP culinary experience that cannot be missed. VIP ticketholders can enjoy limited edition brews and small bites prepared by two of Las Vegas' finest culinary masterminds: Chef Brian Howard, who will present an exclusive pop-up taste of his Sparrow + Wolf concept; and Chef Gina Marinelli from D.O.C.G. Enoteca. Chef Howard will prepare two dishes for the festival: Wood Roasted Lamb Hearts served with a walnut and mint pesto and Muhammara Crepes. Chef Marinelli will offer VIP guests the opportunity to sample her famed Clam Cannellini Chowder and BBQ Quail with Calabrian sauce.
