Hop Nuts Brewing: First Microbrewery in Las Vegas Arts District

It’s always great to know the success stories of people from all walks of life. They inspire many to never give up, follow their heart, and stand up from failures. There’s a thing or two to take away after knowing them. On that note, here’s the success story of Kevin Holder, the owner of the very first microbrewery in the Las Vegas Arts District, Hop Nuts Brewing.

A PRODUCT OF PASSION AND COMMITMENT

There’s no hint that Holder would turn out to be an owner of a brewpub when you learn his background. He was a graduate of Kinesiology, the study of human and non-human movement, from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). Upon graduation, he had two jobs. He worked as an MRI Technician in the Valley Hospital and an outpatient clinic.

Even when he’s already juggling two jobs, he manages to intern in some breweries during his spare time to broaden his knowledge on brewing beers. It seems like he took the old saying to heart that goes, “if there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Holder has grown strongly passionate about brewing. In an article from the Las Vegas Weekly, he even shared that he brewed the moment his shift at work ended until the wee hours in the morning.

Holder wanted to establish his brewpub in the Las Vegas Arts District. While he was born in Long Beach, he grew up in Downtown. When Holder had saved enough money, he opened Hop Nuts Brewing on February 2015.

Holder’s commitment and passion worked. He made everything work for him despite the challenges and made his dreams happen. He had a clear vision of what he wanted and pursued it at all costs.
