While this may be a silly question, I am traveling to Vegas and I always like to try beers that I cannot get on the East Coast so I am looking for suggestions of some beers worth trying in Sin City.

The beer you try in Vegas, stays in Vegas....

Sorry, someone had to say it.

I'm not one to suggest beers (I rarely drink anything but homebrew) but I recently was in LV and took a trip to Freakin Frog on South Maryland and they have a nice selection of beers...and scotch too if you're into that. You can take unopened bottles with you but it's full-service bar prices.

I don't know if it still is going on but when I was out there last November I went to "The Pub" in Monte Carlo hotel. There were taps galore. When I asked for a beer list the bartender gave me a good thick book that looked like a novel

When I ordered the bartender asked if I was there for happy hour (5-7 I believe), I said "Sure whats happy hour? Discount appetizers or something?" She replies "Buy one, get one". "Buy one get one, what?" I asked. She then told me that their happy hour is BOGO beers!!! You have to get the same beer you just had and there is no sharing with your friends but none the less we spent the rest of our happy hours there. Everyone else had appetizers or one of the Big 3 beers on special. The prices weren't too steep either. If you think your getting 2 beers it was well worth it.

Two places that I have had Micro's in Vegas.

First in the Aladdin's underground passage (shopping center) I found a outlet for Sin City Brew. It was very tasty, but not much of a drinking atmosphere.

Second, off of the strip there is a little casino called Ellis Island, they brew on site and only charge a dollar for a pint (though I am not sure that it is even worth that much).

I actually really enjoyed the beers at Ellis. They weren't the greatest, but a good pub crawler. Usually, when we got up, we would go over to there and drink 5 or 6 and then hit the strip. Also, if you go to Ellis, they have an off menu special, you have to ask for it. Ribeye, potato, and a beer (root beer for the non alki's) for likle $5. Luck - Dwain

Vegas is not a very strong beer town, unfortunately.

That's the beer guide for Vegas on BA. Good luck!

If you hike down to Excalibur you can take the monorail to mandalay bay and then walk through the passage to luxor and find the Burger Bar. Great burgers and great beer. They don't have a huge selection, but they do have some great options. It's the only bar I've come across (which that may not be saying much) that sold an Oud Bruin. Service is very nice.

You should also give Sin City a whirl. I hear the stout is pretty good. I really enjoyed the hefeweizen. Very tasty. I know there are several outlets, but I found a good sized one in the Flamingo by the pool.

+1 on the Burger Bar, but they have a HUGE selection by my standards. The Sin City place is in the Venetian mall (I think?). I loved their Pilsner... Also, the convenience stores on the strip sell huge ass snpa's for under three bucks. Which you can drink where ever. I love Vegas!

I think there are multiple Sin City outlets on the strip. I definitely know that the Flamingo has an outlet. I wouldn't be surprised to know that the Venetian has one too. It's a very reasonably priced alternative to BMC on the strip.
