Barley’s Casino & Brewing Company, located at 4500 E. Sunset Rd. in Henderson, is hosting its eighth annual Brewfest on Saturday, May 7 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. serving up specialty brews from more than 25 different breweries. This year will feature a charity component for the first time as the non-profit Beer for Boobs, an alliance with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, joins the festivities to help tap the cure.

In addition to Barley’s serving up some of their best brews, other popular local breweries participating, include Sin City Brewery, Nevada Brewers Guild, Tenaya Creek Brewery Co., Boulder Dam Brewing Company and Triple 7 Brewpub, among others. This year will also host international beers from breweries, including St-Feuillien from Belgium, Czechvar from the Czech Republic; Pauwel Kwak out of Belgium and La Trappe, the only Trappist brewery in The Netherlands, to name a few.

Barley’s will pour four beers, including Boulder Gold Hefeweizen, Double Red Rock and Blue Diamond, and Brewmaster Jim Wilson is introducing a new special India Pale Ale just for the event. Jack’s Irish Pub from Palace Station will also be on hand and serving up Jack’s Black stout and Jack’s Red Irish red ale.

The Brewfest takes place outside on the patio and courtyard, the perfect place for guests to sample beer from more than 25 different breweries or purchase cocktails from the full bar. A $5 sandwich menu featuring barbecue pulled pork, smoked beef brisket, smoked chicken breast, half-pound burgers and bratwurst sausage is available as well.

In addition to the selection of unique craft brews, there is live music throughout the day. A DJ gets thing started, spinning tunes from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Fab performs Beatles hits from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Ashley Red performs club rock from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
