    I have turned into a beer snob and no longer drink Bud, Coors, Miller, etc. unless I have no other choice. Looking to see if anyone knows of casinos that will bring you craft beer at the tables while you are playing. I've found on previous trips that the best I could do was Sam Adams at NYNY.

    TAG bar in the Linq has so many different beers. You can get them while playing VP. If you are diamond at CET, they will bring you these from that bar, if you ask nicely.

    Mandalay Bay had Lagunitas IPA last time I was there. The Aria had Firestone Pivo as well. They both had Goose Island availble. I know some do not consider Goose a craft beer since they were purchased by Inbev, however I have been drinking their beer since they were a small brew pub on the north side of Chicago, so I still consider it one.

    I am loving Tag at the Linq this trip... Play some quarter VP and you have the run of the place. The selection is awesome. This is going to be a go to for me from now on.

    The Linq casino had a decent IPA on the floor. One of the Sam Adams ? Can't remember.

    Another vote for Tag at Linq. They were great to me. I know it's not beer but I was impressed that the center bar in Venetian gave me Macallan 12 for playing $.25 VP.

    Probably Rebel IPA. Good for Sam Adams, but with Linq, you can do a lot, lot, LOT better by going to TAG.

    They will also comp the beers when you play in the e-table game area (6 to 5 though of course) if you don't want to play bartop VP or even money bartop BJ with no doubles or splits (HA ~4.3%).

    Here is the list from last summer I believe. There's been a few changes since then, and not every one of these can be comped (mainly bombers/real expensive crap), so ask your bartender if you are unsure. And also don't be afraid to ask for beers not on the menu of a type you like. If you like West Coast IPAs, definitely ask if they have anything from Pizza Port in stock.

    Also Venetian, Cosmo, and Harrahs has Sculpin compable at some of their bars. Cosmo's sports book bar has an okay craft draft selection (see it in your sig). Dunno if they would serve these beers on the floor though. I don't play the tables enough to know. :(

    Not really craft but Todd English Pub in the Aria Crystal Shops have MANY beers from Germany, Belgium, ect... that I have never been able to get in the US. I'm a beer snob also and love this place. Be prepared though... they are a bit pricey but to me totally worth it.

    Thanks for the tips. While I won't gamble at the crappy odds at the bar, I'll have to check out TAG at the Linq. That's a pretty good selection.

    I enjoyed the Yardhouse. Good selection and the bartenders seemed to really know beer. Gave me several free samples, good time there.

    Best selection on the Strip hands down is at Public House in Venetian, staff is all at minimum level 1 and most level 2 Cicerone as well so they actually know what they are talking about when it comes to the beers they serve. FWIW most if not all MGM have went to Goose IPA for the floor drink after the new corporate contract with InBev was signed.

    The Pub at Monte Carlo is also a beer-lover's heaven. Over 100 beers on tap and many more in bottles. They do healthy-sized beer flights too at a good price. It's kinda out of the way at the rear of the place behind the casino but if you're headed to/from the Bellagio-MC tram it's worth a stop.

    TAG bar at the Linq. Everytime I have been there the bartenders are friendly and really knowledgable about their beer selection. Not everything is comped as some of the really expensive DIPAs are comped only if you are diamond CET. With that said, the manager/bartender dude comped one for me as I was the only customer one morning and he and I struck up a nice conversation.

    I second this. They have beers that don't even exist on the Uptappd app. Huge selection.

    You can get a 2 for 1 on flights (myvegas) for The Pub. I've used this discount the last couple trips. They have a huge selection (even some hard to find english bitters). Cheers!
