19+ Bars For Beer Lovers In Las Vegas

Last updated: September 10, 2018 at 10:17 am. Posted by in Las Vegas Bars, Las Vegas Restaurants, Nightlife. No Comments on 19+ Bars For Beer Lovers In Las Vegas.

September 28 is National Drink Beer Day. You might ask, “isn’t that every day?” And we might reply, “darn right.” But to commemorate the formal date of the faux holiday, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite Las Vegas beer spots – old and new – where you can find this lovely beverage.

19+ Las Vegas Bars: National Drink Beer Day

Once (or Twice… or More ) in a Blue Moon Bar

Blue Moon has been delighting taste buds as a gateway Belgian-style Wit since 1995. The Blue Moon Bar at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino will have plenty of that flagship beer, but also carries the brewery’s fun seasonal offerings. We implore you to try the Mango Wheat, Summer Honey Wheat, Blood Orange Pale Ale, Mexican Chocolate, Agave Moon or one of the rotating beer-based cocktails.

We get it, though. Sometimes you just want something simple and there’s nothing wrong with kicking back with a pint of the original, garnished with the signature orange slice.

Signature Bar at Harrah's Las Vegas offers 16 beers on draft

Socialize in style at Signature Bar or party at carnaval court

Signature Bar, located near Harrah’s Las Vegas’ Strip entrance, draws your attention with vibrant colors and luxurious elements. Equally eye-popping are the 16 beers on draft, often including regional beers like Reno’s Great Basin Outlaw Milk Stout and craft imports such as Scotland’s Brewdog Punk IPA.

If something festive and upbeat is more your speed, Carnaval Court is the place to be. Although it’s more known for its cocktail-conjuring flair bartenders, you can grab a cold one and catch a live band or DJ day and night.

Linq Up at AmeriCAN and The Book

The LINQ Hotel & Casino has shaped up to be quite the spot for beer lovers. The Book, which just opened Sept. 6, 2018, features a self-pouring beer wall with 24 beers on tap, including a seasonal rotation. There are 12 more beers available at the bar, so you’re bound to find something to pair with the chicken wings at The Book’s “indoor food truck,” Sticky Chicken.

Over on The LINQ Promenade, AmeriCAN Beer & Cocktails boasts more than 70 beers, covering every state in the nation. We love the BYOG – Bring Your Own Grub – option. Think of it as a reverse BYOB – bring whatever you want to eat and grab a can from their extensive selection.

Le Bar Du Sport will be offering special discounts on buckets of beer

Central Strip? Check out Sully’s, Le Bar Du Sport or Beer Park

Since it’s so easy to get to and from Bally’s Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas from the other property, both resorts are fantastic for variety of things to see, do and eat within walking distance.

Sully’s at Bally’s and Le Bar Du Sport at Paris both offer game day beer bucket specials and are conveniently located near the casino floor and sports book, respectively.

As you might guess from the name, BEER Park is focused on … beer. The strip-side bar and eatery has more than 100 beers between tap, bottle and can, so if there’s a style you like, they’ll likely have it. Plus, they have some hearty bar food selections, bar games and excellent fountain views of the Las Vegas Strip.

Caesars Palace Offers An empire Of Beers

Gordon Ramsay’s Pub and Grill carries more than 55 beers between its bottled and draught selection, so you can wash down your pub grub with a fine pint of your choice.We recommend some Samuel Smith or Innis & Gunn for that UK connection.

Although whiskey is more commonly paired cigars, if a stogie and a beer seems like your idea of a nice time, Montecristo Cigar Bar offers a decent selection of easy-drinking beer from Peroni, Modelo, Sierra Nevada and more. And last, but not least, Alto Bar near the sports book offers private booths with built-in TVs for your group in addition to a fine tap and bottle selection.

Beer, Beer Everywhere – Look Out For Happy Hour

Not every bar is a “beer bar” in Vegas, but there are plenty of places that can get some “beer bar” cred for their great happy hour deals.

The Cromwell’s Interlude gives off a fancy cocktail lounge vibe, but offers $3 beers from 7-8 p.m. nightly, so you can cozy up in a booth without breaking the bank. At Flamingo Las Vegas, Bird Bar offers select 50 cent beers during their 5-6 p.m. happy hour, plus beer pong, if that floats your boat (or pong ball). Another type of bird – night owls – will want to roost at iBar Ultra Lounge at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, which offers a reverse happy hour, with 50 percent off all drinks from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m.

Don’t Tap Out Before Trying Sin City Brewing Company

With four locations on the Strip, including the original location at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s Las Vegas, chances are you’ve passed by Sin City Brewing Company’s distinctively devilish logo once or twice.

Even though Sin City only has five taps plus a seasonal tap, don’t expect it to be like those bars with five IPAs and a double IPA. The taproom’s variation in styles will ensure that you’ll find something that you like: Weisse is Nice (German-style hefeweizen), Never Pass Up a Blonde (light beer), Say Hello to Amber (amber lager), The Ale with a Tale (British-style IPA) and The Dark Side of Sin (Irish-style dry stout).

Get local at Nevada Taste Site

If you want to get a taste for Las Vegas’ local craft beer scene, you don’t have to piece together a pub crawl or track down bottles at a grocery store.

In Downtown Las Vegas’ Arts District, the recently opened Nevada Taste Site has beers on tap from local brewers like Crafthaus, Banger Brewing, Tenaya Creek, Joseph James and Big Dog’s. Old Vegas décor, ranging from vintage menus, photos and even neon signage, adorns the walls, giving this place a very unique vibe that is definitely worth the trek.

Tap the Source AT vegas’ Local Breweries

If you’re really willing to travel for beer, many (but sadly, not all) of Vegas’ local breweries have taprooms where you can not only enjoy a great pint, but maybe also chat across the bar from somebody that helped make it.

In order of approximate nearness to the Strip, we’re fans of: Hop Nuts in the Arts District, Banger Brewing and Tenaya Creek in Downtown, Crafthaus and Bad Beat in neighboring Henderson, and Big Dog’s in the north side of town.
