Las Vegas, Nevada (March 28, 2013)–The FedEx Cup comes to Las Vegas in October with the playing of the PGA Tour's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. And there are several events scheduled during the week, and a few prior to the tournament. One of the more fun ones is the tapping of the Maibock Brew at Las Vegas' Gordon Biersch Brewery on April 3 at the Boca Park location. All Las Vegas golfers–visiting and local–are invited. The event is from 5-8 PM and will feature the limited edition beer, appetizer specials, and other fun. Proceeds raised will benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children. –By Brian Hurlburt
The Boca Park eatery hosts its annual tapping celebration to premiere its spring menu with an afternoon of appetizing cuisine and $5 premium beers with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Shriners Hospitals for Children.
