Only in Vegas. When a police officer falls in the line of duty, the city grieves. When it loses a K-9, we brew a commemorative beer.
K-9 Officer Nicky, a Belgian Malinois, was shot by friendly fire during a running shoot out March 31. The brave dog had just recovered from multiple machete wounds from a previous burglary arrest.
Big Dog's Brewing Company is brewing a beer to honor the brave Mali. The beer is called K-9 Nicky War Dog IPA. This is the company's first beer to honor any of the city's heros.
Want a taste? Come to the K-9 Nicky War Dog tapping partyon April 28. The $15 tickets include a pint of the beer, an appetizer and a Big Dog's pint glass. Proceeds from the event will go to a local charity selected by Metro.
