Public Invited to Try Blonde Lager Beer Honoring Las Vegas’ Famous Neon Kicking Cowgirl, Vegas Vickie, September 1
Put on your cowboy boots and head to Circa Resort & Casino this Thursday for a taste of an electrifying new beer made exclusively for the downtown Las Vegas casino resort.
Circa has teamed up with local brewery Able Baker Brewing Company to create a custom blonde lager beer – the Vegas Vickie Neon Blonde – a homage to the iconic kicking neon cowgirl, Vegas Vickie. The lager will launch at a special tasting event September 1.
Only available at Circa, the 4.5% ABV beverage will be served in a 16 oz. can and offers an easy drinking, crisp and clean lager with more character and depth of flavor than the standard light beer. Following the launch, thirsty guests can get a taste of the lager for themselves at Vickie’s namesake bar Vegas Vickie’s Cocktail Lounge as well as MEGA BAR and Overhang Bar at Circa.
The Vegas Vickie Neon Blonde lager will debut during an event at Vegas Vickie’s at Circa on Thursday, Sept. 1. The event is open to the public from 5 – 7 p.m. and guests are invited to post a picture while at the event to receive a free beer.
“We love teaming up with local businesses, and Able Baker was the perfect partner to help us develop a property-exclusive beer,” said Circa’s Director of Beverage Sam Pulliam. “Vegas Vickie is an icon in our community, and we are thrilled to have a beverage and a namesake bar for guests to enjoy while at Circa.”
With a downtown Las Vegas location, Able Baker is known for creating unique and finely crafted premium quality beers, putting an emphasis on using fresh ingredients in all their lagers.
Able Baker’s Director of Marketing and PR Kevin Lingley said, “We are proud to partner with Circa and deliver a beer honoring the legendary Vegas Vickie. Beer has long been conduit for conversation, and we hope Neon Blonde sparks conversation about Las Vegas’ great history.”
The neon kicking cowgirl, Vegas Vickie, has played a significant role in Las Vegas’ storied history and has kept Fremont Street bright for decades. When designing Circa, CEO Derek Stevens wanted to celebrate the legacies of the city with Vegas Vickie being top of mind. The must-see, 25-by-20-foot statue now kicks just like she did in 1980 in her new dedicated home at the elevated Vegas Vickie cocktail lounge located in the heart of Circa’s lobby. The resort also c
reated a utility NFT surrounding Vickie with an original painting of the iconic cowgirl by Jason “Borbay” Borbet. The Vegas Vickie NFT can be viewed at Circa’s 60th floor rooftop cocktail lounge Legacy Club.
Vegas Vickie’s Cocktail Lounge is open from 9:30 a.m. to 3 a.m. seven days a week. MEGA BAR and Overhang are open 24/7.
