More than 300 people piled into the Golden Nugget special events center on Friday night for the hotel’s first annual Beer Fest. I was one of the lucky 300 and with over 200 beers to choose from, let’s just say I had (both) my hands full.
Some of my favorites included Fat Tire, Firestone and Blue Moon. While my friend and I perused the different beer stations, a band performed live music to keep the crowd entertained.
In addition to plenty of beer, there were also food stations with jumbo pretzels, schnitzel sandwiches, stuffed mushrooms and buffalo chicken egg rolls.
I noticed several bachelor parties and groups of guys having a boys night out. For $50, you could taste all the beer you could stomach and food was included also.
It was a great night and a successful event. The party continued on Saturday with an Oktoberfest pool party at The Tank pool with free admission, food and beer on sale and a Miss Oktoberfest contet.
