Banger Brewing: Created by the City of Las Vegas, for the City of Las Vegas

Do you dream of building a business with your friends? Wishing to travel the road towards victory together? It would probably be an amazing ride. After all, it is with a group of people that you could count on and be crazy with at the same time.

In Las Vegas, a group of five friends was able to turn such a dream into a reality. They are the people behind Banger Brewing, a brewery located Downtown.

The group of five friends behind Banger Brewing knew each other since they were young. Later on in life, they worked together at a hotel. This is where they developed an interest in the world of food, beverage, and hospitality. In fact, even without the business in mind yet, they were already traveling the world together, exploring beers and learning about service in the best way possible: through experience.

After many years, they have come to a decision to make a business out of the same passion they share. This comes with a belief that Las Vegas is a great source of craft beers. With this in their heart and mind, they asked Michael “Banger” Beaman, their friend who knows how to brew beers, to join the business. He agreed and the company was named after him.  

Together with Beaman, the group of five friends started to brew beers and the rest was history. When all is said and done, they envision a world that recognizes Las Vegas as a great source of fine-tasting and quality craft beers.
