Beer drinkers who enjoy quaffing the creations of craft brewers can slake their thirst April 27 at the Great Vegas Festival of Beer. Those who don't live in Las Vegas will be provided with free rides to their hotels if they overindulge.
Guests can sample more than 200 beers from about 50 local, regional and international breweries. The promoter, a Las Vegas group called Motley Brews, has collaborated with the Nevada Craft Brewers Assn. to create a new product, Pyrite Pale Ale, for the festival.
The event will be 3-7 p.m. at Sunset Park, 2601 E. Sunset Road, about seven miles southeast of the Strip. A lakeside pavilion in the newly renovated park will be the venue.
Advance tickets, available online, cost $30. They will also be available at the gate for $40.
The admission price includes a free ride home or to a hotel. Designated Drivers Inc. will provide sober drivers to return people and their vehicles safely to their destinations. People can sign up for the free rides at the group’s tent at the event.
