Whether you’re simply a beer lover or a craft-beer aficionado, Las Vegas has countless options where you can sip your chosen microbrew or taste pours from all over the world to find your new favorite. For National Beer Day, or any other day, Vegas is a beer drinker’s paradise.
Be a Craft Connoisseur
In the Las Vegas valley, you can sample some terrific craft beers straight from the source in one of the many microbreweries. Not far from downtown, taste the local flavor with a stop in Tenaya Creek Brewery. With seasonal and year-round taps, there’s always something new to try, but don’t miss the staple, Bonanza Brown Ale, or the enigmatic Old Jackalope Barleywine Style Ale when it’s in season.
Overlook the thriving art district while sampling one of Hop Nuts’ distinctive Las Vegas pours. Appreciate the dark undertones of the magical Harry Porter while surveying the local character on the patio. Since you’re in the area, head down to Able Baker Brewing. It offers 30 craft beers such as its classic Atomic Duck American IPA; or its anniversary ale, ONE, a smooth imperial dark ale with aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar and a lingering dryness. Embrace a truly homegrown experience at Bad Beat Brewing. Nested unassumingly in a business park in Henderson, the laid-back atmosphere, weekly events and delicious brews make it a worthwhile destination. Try the doughy German-style hefeweizen, Bluffing Isn’t Weisse.
Find Your New Favorite Bar
As the oldest freestanding bar in Las Vegas, Atomic Liquors mixes its fascinating legacy with a swanky atmosphere and an ever-changing draft list. Sample one of the local brews like the Wild Amarillo Saison brewed up north in Reno.
The primely located Eureka! is just below Emergency Arts in Fremont East and offers elevated American dishes alongside 40 beers on tap, half of which are locally crafted. Get adventurous with the Bone Marrow Burger accompanied by a Big Dog’s Las Vegas Lager.
Go Where the Choice Is Yours
Tailgate Social is the ultimate man cave to sit back have a brew. Inside Palace Station, Tailgate Social is a game-changing sports bar, featuring a value-friendly menu of mouthwatering eats, an oversized beer list with hard-to-find brews, and domestic favorites.
For sports fans and beer lovers alike, Beerhaus offers a diverse draft list, plenty of TVs and a choice location in The Park. A mainstay for Vegas Golden Knights fans, the German beer hall offers vegan options alongside more traditional dishes. Pair the fried pickles with one of the numerous IPAs on tap.
Offering an enormous selection of craft microbrews on tap and by the bottle, Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas offers a brew with a view. Sip on a Citra Rye Pale Ale by Joseph James Brewing Company while snacking on the Breakfast Burger and enjoying some people-watching from the rooftop patio. For a suburban appeal with endless options, World of Beer in Henderson offers a huge selection of beer with a fully paired food menu.
You’ll feel like a Las Vegas expert after sampling the eclectic array of locally brewed beers.
