Holy Cow Casino and Brewery was a locals casino and microbrewery[2] on Las Vegas Boulevard in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Owned by Big Dog's Hospitality Group,[4] Holy Cow was the first microbrewery in Las Vegas.[5]

The brewery had a capacity of 2,200 bbl per year.[1] The operation closed on March 22, 2002.[4] The former location of the Holy Cow briefly served as a sales office for the now cancelled Ivana condo project. The building was demolished in late April 2012.
