Hey there, beer lovers! What if some of the best bars and restaurants in Las Vegas were to weave together a beer festival and a bar crawl to make some kind of super Vegas Oktoberfest?

Well, you’d get Hoptoberfest. And it’d be awesome.

Las Vegas Strip beer festival

Hoptoberfest runs Oct. 1-28 (two weeks longer than the OG Oktoberfest) and 20 bars and restaurants are participating in the beer festival, which includes live entertainment, giveaways, fun activities, and of course, the best beers from breweries like Saint Archer, Firestone Walker, Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point, Stone, Lagunitas and Sam Adams.

For $40 (Pro life tip: It’s $25 with free Total Rewards membership, and $20 for local Nevada TR members), guests will have access to the entire beer festival, and receive an official Hoptoberfest glass, featured beer sample, discounts at all 20 bars, access to daily entertainment, and a map/event calendar to keep you on track.

Since this beer festival is running for nearly the entire month, that means you can come and go to the various venues and events as you wish.

These are the bars taking part of the beer festival. Take note of the ones offering live entertainment, free beer swag giveaways and contests on select days.
