9 Awesome Beer Adventures in Las Vegas (Not for the Faint Hearted!)

Sometimes you really need a drink, and by a drink I mean a beer. If you’re tired of Eduardo, the mixologist who assures you that you’ll love his newest drink made with every single color he could find behind the counter, maybe it is time to try some of the best beer experiences in Vegas. We’ve compiled 9 different experiences that you need to try at least once. If you love beer as much as me, you’ll want to try one of these every other day for 18 days, and then perhaps go back to the start and try them all again.

If anyone asks, just say that PaceVegas told you it was for science.

Meet Locals at Aces & Ales (Map)
3740 S Nellis Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89121
Aces and Ales is inspired by London pub life, with over 100 different beers and a focus on really good gourmet comfort food.  This is a perfect place for anyone who considered themselves a Beer Geek, and wants to learn more about how different beers are made from their very informed and educated staff. Over 50 rotating taps make for an amazing selection, and 50 more bottles of beer including local brews and favorites. You’ll find a lot of local beer lovers here and even bartenders from other establishments after they are done with work.

Get Sophisticated with Public House (Map)
The Venetian, 3355 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Not to be confused with the place at Luxor, which uses the same name but no affiliation whatsoever, the Public House at the Venetian is the best gastropub in Las Vegas, with a huge selection of craft beers and cuisine to match. With an in-house cicerone aka beer-sommelier, you can get fresh, live beer that is from a cask that is still fermenting before you drink it. They use the only direct-draw system that uses no nitrogen to move it allowing for a better taste and interpretation of the beer.

Be a Hooligan at Todd English P.U.B. (Map)
City Center, 3720 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89158
Todd English’s greasy interpretation of an English pub is filled with the most delicious, albeit fattening foods. Located next to the Shops at Crystals, P.U.B. has an excellent selection of amazing food that includes the “workman’s” grilled cheese made from brie and double smoked bacon to the Duck Buns an Asian inspired confit of duck in hoisin sauce on steamed Asian buns. As for the beer, while you are going to be charged Vegas strip prices, the pours are very generous and the selection is excellent. More importantly, this is the only place on the Strip that you can buy traditional Meads.

4755 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89103

This 24-hour dive bar isn’t the type of place that you’d expect to find a decent selection, partially because its situated next to a Title Loan Establishment, where many people get cash and then immediately take it to the bar and don’t care what they drink. However, they’ve managed to make a name for themselves with a selection of beer, wine and sake.  With 24 Beers on tap and 90 to choose from in bottles, this Dive bar is a must try, especially considering they keep the prices to “neighborhood bar” levels.  Every Thursday at 8pm is “Open Mic,” where you can get free prizes and in theory, free beer for exposing yourself to other patrons.

Do Yoga at CraftHaus Las Vegas Brewery (Map)
7350 Eastgate Rd Ste 110, Henderson, NV 89011 
While it’s located in an industrial complex in the middle of nowhere, this local small brewery offers a few of their local beers on tap with a great staff of experts. You can go there and try their amazing Resonate IPA and Evocation Saison by itself, or you can come to their once a month yoga classes. With instructor Tas Upright, “Booze Yoga” has gained a following of drunk yogis who love to relax with a beer and then do yoga at the same time. Strangely enough it works. Learn more here

Eat Octopus with Beer at Carnevino (Map)
3325 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 

While Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich wanted to make Carnevino known for its Steak and Wine, it’s become a favorite of those who like unique beer paired with what some people considered the best Steak on the West Coast. However, what makes this place exceptional is the bartenders who are also experts at pairing with seasonal food menus made from Star Executive Chef Nicole Brisson. Top Bartender Adam Rains says that everyone should try the Grilled Octopus with Brooklyn Breweries Sorachi Ace at least once.

Watch Rubgy at McMullan’s Irish Pub (Map)
4650 W Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89103
McMullans is known as the St. Patrick’s Day Headquarters of Las Vegas, but also where locals often go to watch Rugby and eat Fish and Chips while arguing about some archaic Irish feud. With some Irish alcoholic legends to be found here including Boddington’s Cream Ale and Magners Irish Cider, you’ll it won’t matter if you are a Rugby fan or not. This place is always packed with limo drivers and dealers from the Orleans Casino, so you’re always going to hear a great story. Make sure to try the All You Can Eat Fish and Chips on Thursdays.

Enjoy Vegas Style Micro Beer at Tenaya Creek Brewery (Map)
831 W Bonanza Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89106
No food, no gaming, no smoking, but just local Vegas beer. With lots of seating, regulars from the Las Vegas Review Journal just down the road, and smart well trained bartenders, this feels like a serious Brewery that is focusing just on making fabulous beer. While everything is considered good, highly recommend the 11 beer tasting sampler that is priced at $11. A live feed of their chalkboard wall shows exactly what they have including their seasonal specials and yearlong offerings.

This “barcade” with an excellent selection of craft beers already made a name for itself in Henderson, but recently launched a new even more exciting version of itself in South West Las Vegas.

This may be the only place in Vegas where the people cheering are doing so watching a video game on a projector screen.
