    Based on the recommendations in this thread, I visited a few breweries and taprooms on my recent trip to Las Vegas. I found this nice map to guide my journey.

    My preference is hazy New England IPA's. My first stop was at Beer Zombies where I had a flight of Fog Zombie Triple NEIPA, Love Hazy NEIPA, and Motueka Revengeance Imperial IPA. All were pretty good but the Love Hazy stood out from the rest.

    The next day I visited Hop Nuts and sampled a few more IPA's - my favorite there was Chasing Clouds NEIPA

    Back in my room at Vdara, I had a small supply of my hometown favorites from Cigar City Brewery - Florida Man DIPA

    The last brewery I tried was Banger Brewing downtown on Fremont - the best one there was Haze & Loathing NEIPA

    I also picked up a nice IPA - Atomic Duck from Able Baker Brewing on my way to the Circa Sports Book

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    I am also a hazy junky. What has been your experience at getting hazy beers comped for any casinos? Downtown or on the strip?
     
    After Christmas getaway!

    Although not hazy, I have gotten Elysian Space Dust IPA and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale comped. I would expect to eventually get some of the Sam Adams hazy IPA's since they already stock the Sam Adams lager. Many years ago at Red Rocks, you could get comped beers from Yardhouse in the poker room.
