The event will be held at Zappos Headquarters’ backyard in Downtown Las Vegas, a venue typically closed to the public, from 8 to 11 p.m.

2nd Annual Hopped Taco Throwdown

The Hopped Taco Throwdown will gather some of the best and most innovative breweries and chefs spanning the Las Vegas Valley. Twelve chefs will step out of their culinary comfort zones and strive to earn the title of “Hopped Taco Champion” in one of three categories: Hopped Taco, for best-beer-infused taco; Taco Loco, for most creative taco; and Taco Dulce, for best dessert taco. Motley Brews will bring together top-notch breweries to complement the tacos with endless samples of craft brews.

Last year’s winners included Chef Geno Bernardo from Herringbone for the Taco Dulce, Chef Jamie Tran from The Black Sheep for the Taco Loco and Chef Sterling Buckley from Fix Restaurant & Bar for the Hopped Taco.

Both general admission and VIP tickets are available for the 21+ event, which includes endless tacos and craft beer samples. Prices will vary with purchase times with general admission tickets starting at $55 and VIP starting at $75. VIP tickets include one-hour early entry at 7 p.m. and upgraded glassware for sampling brews.
