Award Winning Brew Master Dave Otto gives VINO LAS VEGAS a lesson on beer making
If you haven't tried one of Dave Otto's award winning hand crafted beers here at the Big Dog's
and Draft House, you have been missing out on some of the best beer in
Nevada. VinoLasVegas had the opportunity to speak with Dave and listen as he explained the rather complex procedure of beer making.
Dave came to Las Vegas over ten years ago with a beer making kit in the back seat of his car and a dream in his heart. Dave had a passion for home beer making but he could see that Las Vegas could provide open doors for him to produce great beer for the public at a reasonable price. With his dream and the desire to succeed, he landed a job at the Holy Cow restaurant, (which has now been closed.) Dave's goal was to become the Brew Master. Being new to Las Vegas he was ready to roll up his sleeves and do what is takes to make
it in the City of Lights. Dave started as a slot tech and waited for the
opportunity to work as an assistant beer maker. His time finally came. He then went on to
become the Brew Master for all of the Big Dog's Corporation in Las Vegas. With assistant
beer maker, Sam McKinney, Dave is creating award winning beers. Dave has won gold medal's
in the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival. Las Vegas should be proud to have
this talented beer maker here in Las Vegas.
Join Elaine from VinoLasVegas, as she speaks with Dave Otto as
he explains the beer making process.
