Beer and Loathing in Las Vegas: 11 Places to Find Good Beer in Sin City

Welcome to Las Vegas sign

I’m a bit spoiled when it comes to beer bars, because I live in Boston, a city with a thriving craft beer scene. Boston is packed with great beer bars. (Check out my list of the best Boston beer bars here.)

Whenever I travel, I make it a point to locate quality beer bars, but depending on the area I’m in, that’s not always an easy task. This week I was in Las Vegas, Nevada, and though there’s definitely no shortage of bars in Vegas, the craft-beer scene is somewhat lacking. Las Vegas is a drinking city for sure, but the focus is mostly on free drinks for gamblers or expensive bottles of fancy-schmancy booze and Champagne for clubhoppers.

That said, I was able to find a handful of quality establishments that cater to beer nerds like myself. The following list isn’t meant to be a comprehensive guide to beer bars in Vegas, but each and every one of these bars serves quality beer, and each and every one of them gets a thumbs up from this Urban Beer Nerd. If you know of another joint that I should know about, drop a comment below.
