Motley Brews, the creators of Great Vegas Beer Festival, is teaming up with some of Las Vegas’ top restaurants to take tacos to new heights with “Hopped Taco Throwdown,” a heated competition and craft beer tasting. Chefs will vie for their innovative creations to be crowned the top tacos at the inaugural competition, held at the Backyard at Zappos in downtown Las Vegas from 8-11 p.m.  Aug. 12. 

The boutique event, which is limited to 1,200 attendees, will gather some of the city’s most innovative chefs along with top craft breweries for an all-inclusive culinary and beer experience. Lauded tastemakers from both the beer and culinary worlds have been hand-selected to participate in the all-new experiential festival. 

“Hopped Taco Throwdown is going to be a no-holds-barred battle among local chefs to make non-traditional tacos. The only rule is, ‘there are no rules,’” says Brian Chapin of Motley Brews. “It’s like ‘Iron Chef’ meets summer beer festival.”

Tacos will be judged in three categories, including Hopped Taco, for best-beer-infused taco; Taco Loco, for most creative taco; and Taco Dulce, for best dessert taco. Participating restaurants include Buddy V’s, Stack Restaurant & Bar; Searsucker, Herringbone; Fix Restaurant & Bar, Citizens Kitchen and Bar, Tacos and Beer and more. Breweries include local favorites such as Crafthaus, Big Dog’s, Lovelady, and Bad Beat, as well as several regional breweries. 

Tickets to Hopped Taco Throwdown start at $50 plus fees for general admission, which includes access to the event from 8 to 11 p.m. along with a tasting glass, unlimited beer and taco samples. VIP tickets are also available for $70 plus a service fee and include early entry at 7 p.m., an upgraded tasting glass, and unlimited beer and taco samples. Tickets are limited and available now at www.hoppedtaco.com.
