The EKU 28 Eisbock was amazing. Smells incredibly alcoholic, but finishes very smoothly with a very soft burn after a very clean malty profile in the front.

All of the beers that I had were excellent. I'd certainly recommend them all to anyone. The Pinkus Mueller Münster was an excellent beer. I wanted to try it to see how close I was able to come to the style with my attempt at it earlier this year. Turns out that I was pretty damn close.


Here's a link to their website and the beers that they have:

Alcohol & Food - Freakin' Frog

I just went down through the list again and there are quite a few listed that they didn't have when I was there. After going in the cooler, I can also say that there are quite a few in stock that aren't on the list.

I thought it was hilarious that with all these great beers sitting around (plus what they have on tap), sitting at each table is a plastic insert showing their current special - 22 oz PBR, burger and fries for $7.99 (I can't remember the price exactly, but it was somewhere around there).

Heading to Vegas this afternoon for a wedding. Not sure if i'll be able to get off the strip as I'll be traveling with wife and 10 month old son.

For sure i'll be holed up at the craps table. Hopefully the Palazzo will have a good selection...but i'm not holding my breath.

The Chef is intimidated by the beer list and doesn't want his food to take second stage.

Venetian usually has more activity than Palazzo but Palazzo seems to cater to non-smokers more than most casinos and some people like that.

That's a decent price in LV for a burger/fry/beer but FWIW, FATBURGER FTW! It's across from Monte Carlo (between MacDonalds and Walgreens) and is awesome imo. A Fatburger, fat fry, and fat shake is like $13 but it's worth every penny. I go there every trip.

I just recently heard of Gordon Biersch, there's only one in Florida and it's in Miami. Is it good?

I've heard Ellis Island has some decent deals on cheap food, cheap big breakfasts, etc.

I found the Palazzo to be very good with respect to low smoke. Which is huge for me as I was with my wife and 10 month old son.

Did you try the Yardhouse when you were in Vegas?

Don't waste your time with Gordon Biersch. Think of a true belgian wit, then think of Blue Moon. This is what Gordon Biersch does to ALL of their beers.
