    Where do you like going? Just an open thread to discuss the growing bars/breweries/shops dedicated to putting fine ale's and lagers in our belly! I brew here in San Diego and love what I see as Vegas has been in a big growth spurt over the decade I've been visiting. What bars do you frequent, what breweries do you like, what do you enjoy? Cheers! :drunk:

    777 at MSS is decent. Bangor brewery on Fremont I like their Jalapeno Hefe. I am not into high IBU beers.

    Props to that, we love 777, every night in town before turning in we go. Carlsbad IPA is awesome and the happy hour specials are even better.

    Took an Uber to Hop Nuts Brewing in the downtown arts district on my last trip. Good variety of their own brews along with several rotating guest taps.
     
    Hopefully the weather will be nice.

    You really need to try Banger! They have some good stuff. Dare I say, they are better than 777 and maybe even Chicago Brewery!
     
    Maybe not this year. Looking forward to 2021!

    The Breweries that I have enjoyed are actually out in Henderson. Bad Beat, Lovelady and Crafthaus. Prefer the first two for the beers, but Crafthaus isn't too bad. Hopnuts near downtown isn't bad, but they seem to treat it more like a bar than brewpub. Teneya Creek's new location near downtown is pretty nice and I do like their brews.

    Never had it, but it was clear from their IPA and Stout this April that their taps were overdue for a cleaning at the Center Bar...

    I am a fan of Joseph James, and also liked Big Dog's and Crafthaus's IPAs.

    Another vote for Banger. We always stop there when we go to Fremont, and end up staying for a few hours!

    Not really craft beer... but Tod English Pub in Aria has about 50 German/Belgians that are very hard to get in the US. I go there at least once per trip.

    Tried Banger twice and was unimpressed, maybe we'll pick up the Groupon and give them another shot.

    Another vote for Banger. I like their double IPA and pretty much any of their hoppy beers. It seems like I tried either a stout or a porter last time I was there and enjoyed it.

    Booked a suite at Tuscany because of pub 365 and it's extensive array of crafts and relatively reasonable prices... the plan is sports betting and craft beer drinking for three days.

    8 days out, gearing up for a nice two day trip. Staying at the Cal, going to enjoy Monday hitting all the happy hours. Trying to make it over to Ellis Island.
