Default Viva Las Vegas

Hey everyone,
Headed to vegas next month was wondering if some of the fine people here could give me some locations of brewpubs within walking distance of the strip. I've found ellis island brewing co and sin city which i've been to before but if anyone has some favorites I would like to check them out

Take the bus to old vegas. Main street Station is pretty neat.

Edit: Or go visit Talleymonster!

Can't really think of any brewpubs w/in walking distance, but there's a few bars and restaurants that have good offerings on the strip.

Pour24
CarneVino (Mario Batali restaurant)
Burger Bar
Nine Fine Irishmen
Morels
Cut (Wolfgang Puck restaurant)

Some good places that are close:

Freakin Frog
Rosemary's Restaurant
YardHouse (160 taps)
Hofbrauhaus

For me, Vegas is a great place to visit, but not a great place to live. I made it there for about a year. But, that is just my taste. I know a number of people who love it there. Can't complain about the winters.

Doesn't Monte Carlo have a brew pub of some sort going? Gordon Biersch is off the strip, but not too far, on paradise. Barley's out in Henderson is a decent Burger and Brew.

I agree with you. Good visit, bad living place.

Monte Carlo brew pub is closed down, i guess the bar that replaced it is ok though.

And yea, there's Barley's, BJ's, and Chicago but they're all a decent trip from the strip.

I wanted to get a T-shirt from Nine Fine Irishmen, but I don't think I could have worn it. It said "I Did Nine Fine Irishmen". Imagine the looks I'd get wearing it.

Thanks for all the suggestions. After my lease is up here I'm planning on moving out there for a couple years. What is it you dislike so much? We can just trade places

The heat, the people, lack of seasons, lack of scenery (unless you enjoy dirt), housing prices, and a few others.

There are a few pros, i guess... like ummm... well... 24hr stores. yup, thats about it

Fwiw though, i grew up in Seattle and Vegas is hugely different (obviously). I'd like to end up back in a place that has greenery, snow, rain, lakes, etc. Actually am considering Colorado when the time becomes right.
