The city of Las Vegas is launching a new concept to join the craft beer movement that is popular in cities across the country.
First mentioned at today’s Las Vegas City Council meeting, Brewery Row is slated for downtown, where a natural group of craft brewers has already started and served.
The area plans to add “Brewery Row” signpost banners in front of the designated business as part of the city’s newly launched district banner program.
In addition, the city council will vote to potentially create an incentive package for the region that will encourage more brewers to join.
The proposed incentive package to attract new businesses in the area includes a temporary approval waiver of the liquor license fee for qualifying new businesses to be launched on Las Vegas Brewery Row.
The Council plans to vote on the proposed incentive package at the end of May.
Breweries and taprooms that are officially part of the program are: Crafthaus Brewery, Three Sheets Craft Brew Bar and The Mad Fermentist, Downtown Hop Nuts Brewing, Nevada Brew Works, HUDL Brewing Company, Beer District Brewing, Able Baker Brewing. In addition, Tenaya Creek Brewery and Banger Brewing are included, although they are not in the incentive section.
The district banners were designed and approved by the city council as part of the master plan for the inner city developed in June 2016 – Vision 2045.
