The Pub in City Center next to the Monte Carlo...

Decent but smaller selection at Todd English Irish Pub in Crystals next to the Aria - had a pint of Abyss there last week.

The single best English pub in the western US is a 7 minute taxi ride. The crown and anchor is AMAZING. Abbott ale on tap, mmmmMMMMMmmmm.

And the food is awesome.

Also, not to be rude, but the yard house is the only beer joint in America that has 150 beers and maybe one or two you actually want to drink.

Unless land shark is your idea of a good time.

I have not been to a Yardhouse with 148 taps of Land Shark. The one on the south end of the strip has a great selection. Several beers from Stone, Redhook, Firestone, a decent selection of belgians, but each location varies.

I also recommend The Pub at the Monte Carlo and Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay. The Pub has a much, much bigger selection of beer but Burger Bar has some stuff you won't find at The Pub. There's a couple bars in NY, NY with an ok selection. There's supposed to be a good place in the Wynn but I've never spoken to anybody first hand who has been in there.

If you are a hefeweizen fan I recommend finding a Sin City location. Great hefeweizen but the rest of the beers are bland.

UNLV College bar... Fun times, but just go in knowing the general crowd.

100% agree! If you want English beers this is the place to go!


Another place, that is a casino... behind Bally's is Ellis Island. They have brew house onsite and sell the beer for $1/pint all day long! http://www.villagepubcasino.com/

Another Brepub to check out is Tenaya creek! They have some great beers and better beer labels! LOL... http://www.tenayacreek.com The Red Ryder is one of my favorite!

There's a "brew pub annex" in the Golden Nugget downtown. I can't recall the name though. Pretty cool to sit at the bar and slow play video poker for comped craft brews all night.

Ellis Island puts out some tasty brews too. Can't beat an IPA with their 7 dollar steak special.

I too am a big fan of Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay and the Pub in Monte Carlo.


I think the thing that differentiates them from, say, Yardhouse (other than the beer selection) is that the people there actually have a passion for good beer and care about serving good craft beer in the manner it was meant to be served. I have never gotten that impression from any Yardhouse I've been to; rather, the opposite.
