About Las Vegas Brews Cruise
The Air Force brought me to Las Vegas in April of 1981 and it has been my home ever since.
I have seen Vegas grow from under 300,000 people to almost 3,000,000 in a reasonably short amount of time. That growth has brought some of the finest resort casinos in the world and some of the best craft beer in the world as well.
Having grown up near Chicago I was weaned on beer like Stroh’s, Old Style and L’il Kings. That’s all I thought beer was back then. Over the years I tried a few different beers but craft beer stole my heart. My interest was sparked and I realized that craft beer is for enjoyment not just drinking.
Wanting something interesting and challenging to do after retirement I met with Mr. Mark Lyons of Brews Cruise. Starting in 2006, Mark and Trish Lyons have created and perfected “Cruisin’ for a Brewsin”.
In no short time, I recognized how vibrant the Craft Beer scene was in Las Vegas. There are some dedicated and creative brewers in the Las Vegas area creating beer that is simply amazing! I wanted everyone to experience the passion of craft beer for themselves, so I started Las Vegas Brews Cruise!
I strive to show everyone the vast array of craft beer in Las Vegas. Brewers have spent years perfecting their amazing trade and Las Vegas BC exists to showcase their hard work! The fruits of their labor have led to the creation of amazing beers with a wide variety of styles and tastes.
I am learning the the secrets of craft beer and fully admit that there is more to learn, but education has never been this fun!
