Default Good Places to Drink in Vegas

Heading to Vegas next week and I'm looking for some good places to drink? I've been to the Sin City brewing and the 777 brewery inside Main St. Station. Thanks

The hofbrauhaus was a good time... beer hall, german food, good beer.

I did drink a little too much, IIRC.

I went to the hofbrauhaus last time I was there and loved it, plan to go back. I was just looking for some local breweries, or places that offer a good selection of beer. I live in Oklahoma so our beer selection is horrible. I just found out that there is a restaurant/saloon inside Sam's Town that serves Dogfish Head so I'll probably make the trip over there. Thanks for the help.

Gordon Bierch is good if your lookin for beer.

If you want some cool atmosphere and have a 'friend" try the Peppermill Lounge. It was voted one of the top 10 makeout bars in the country.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

I had never heard of it before I saw pictures in another thread, but Freakin Frog looks awesome.

And Hofbrauhaus definitely if you like standing on your table drinking from your stein and singing songs.

Thanks for the ideas. The freakin frog and gordon bierch look good. Has anyone been to the billy bob's steak house and saloon? I noticed them on the dogfish head web page and thought about trying that out, since I have to drive four hours to buy dogfish head beer.

freakin frog was a huge disappointment. half a dozen ho-hum taps (delerium tremens, chimay white, NB abbey etc) I have to say, Vegas is not a beer town.

My advice is to check bags and byob. Or maybe I'm just spoiled in seattle, where the beer flows like wine!

We just returned from Vegas yesterday and enjoyed the 32° bar at the M Resort. 96 beers on tap. Menu is here, just tab through to the beer section.

Go to the Sand Dollar blues bar SAND DOLLAR BLUES - Nightclub & Lounge, Las Vegas, NV. I forget what they had on tap but the music is kick ass. Used to live in Vegas and go there. It's kind of a local biker hang out. No worries.
