    Main Street Station. Not sure if 4 Queens has access to Chicago Brewing tabs at table games.

    If you are a high roller, I've heard Monte Carlo will comp beers from the Pub.

    Beyond that, there are a fair number of bars if you are wanting to play VP. One in the Linq in particular has a large section.

    TAG lounge at the Linq. Nothing comes close on the Strip. Close to 300 beers...most compable. Best VP for now is 7/5 Triple Bonus+ (97.67%), 6/5 Bonus (96.87%), and 8/5 DDB (96.79%)

    The next best place for selection is off strip at the 32 degree bar M Resort with 96 on draft, all? compable. And M resort has some decent VP games at that bar such as 98.91% Deuces and 9/5 Jacks (98.45%) for quarters.

    Here are some images of the linq menu from the past October (photos courtesy of Rubos). When I was there in Feburary, there were some changes, but most of the list was in tact. But they fortunately organized it by style now instead. I couldn't get good enough pics to take the updated menu though.

    And here's a link to the M Resort menu.

    Can't wait to try Tag in a little over a week! Love beer at EI too but only drink one of their beers so looking forward to the variety at Tag.

    Lagunitas IPA was available for me at the craps table at Mandalay Bay.

    Thanks for the info! Can you just drink whatever is on tap at Tag if you are playing VP?

    I will be out there tomorrow, but I don't recall there being much, if anything, in the way of tap beer at TAG. They have tons of varieties of bottles as shown in the picture above and I didn't have any issues getting anything while playing.

    TAG will comp any beer -- bottle or draft -- on the list priced at $9 or below.

    Pretty sure nothing is on tap at TAG. Very knowledgeable bartenders though

    and no Bell's from Michigan...
    and no New England Brewery out of Connecticut
    and (understandably) no Alchemy or Lawson's out of Vermont (low volume producers)

    but lots of other great choices to keep me occupied for a while...!

    Discovered Belgian Sours here, (VanDerGinste..awesome brew, costs me $5/bottle at my local shop)

    Based on the offerings I can read on the pics, I like the following comp options:

    CA: Sierra Nevada Torpedo, A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale.
    IL: Matilda (I like the other two Goose Island offerings as well).
    DE: Dogfish IPA.
    LA: Turbodog.
    Belgium: Duvel.
    Canada: La Fin du Monde.

    People could quibble about improvements to the list, but that is a great list for mid strip to get comped (or likely cheaper just paying with the paytables offered).
