Right on the cirner of the main drag. Nice outdoor patio. Interior has a long bar with fermenting/serving tanks behind the bar. Very friendly owner who does the pouring. All house beers can be had in one $10 sampler. Handful of guest taps too. Beers are mediocre. Almost missed the video of the Hoover dam construction because football was on, then I noticed it on one monitor on the back wall.

We sat outside our server at first treated us like crap. Of the beers on tap one was ok. This is the second time Iíve been here. Not a great place. Food was ok. I think we were treated like crap because we were tourist. Not a must stop for me going forward.

We sat at the bar where the head brewer served us. On my sampler tray he added the DIPA for me(thank you) I bought the high quality T-shirt for $19, but it came with a free pint of beer. Good saying on back about a bolder Damn beer. A band playing in the courtyard on the Sat. night was good.

Visited on 9-16-2012. Okay atmosphere inside but a cool patio. About 5 house taps this day. Sampler available. Fun spot.

A typical neighboorhood bar in little Boulder City, very old school decor, with the particularity they serve beers directly from the fermenting tanks. Does not make the beers better though, they are boring at best, not awful, but not worth the detour. Limited pub menu, burgers and sandwiches, friendly service. 6 X 3 on = 10$.

Love the old town vibe with boulder Dam pix, memobelia, growlers everywhere, i.e. stone, kern river, pizza port etc...Food was good with steel 15 gal fermation tanks with brews labels on them. Cool, music acts on friday and saturday. Beautiful outside patio area, also.

Just a short drive from Henderson, this brewery is easily accessible from US93. Small town atmosphere is apparent and itís a quiet place to hang out. Live bands on Friday and Saturdays will brighten up the place. The service is mediocre considering they always seem to be short-handed but the people are very friendly. Food selection is okay and beer choices are typical of a brewery this size. Overall not a bad place.

(Visited 11/2008): Made the ~1/2 hour drive from Las Vegas to Boulder City to visit this brewpub, which is right off the Nevada Highway (Rte 93) in downtown Boulder City. Street parking is plentiful in all directions. The front has a lovely little beer garden that looked like it had a stage set for live music. It was a bit chilly the evening I visited but I can see it being a major draw in nicer weather. The interior pays homage to the Boulder Dam, with old pictures and antiques, as well as a video about the damís construction running on a loop behind the bar. Other features of the interior include a chalkboard with the current beers, and tanks representing each beer on tap right behind the bar. Boulder Dam has around 6 beers on draught including a seasonal. A sampler of all the brews can be had for $10. The beers run the gamut from Light to Stout, with nothing really unique in between. All of the beers are unfortunately average at best. It is especially disappointing given that they seem to have the means and the potential to make better beers. Service on a weekday early evening was good. The bartender was knowledgeable about all the beers and happy to provide background and other area recommendations for good beer. Food is typical pub grub. I selected the Turbine Turkey and it was a pretty good sandwich. Overall this place is definitely worth a stop between Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam. I would not necessarily recommend making the trip just for their beer though, as you can find (marginally) better brewpubs in Vegas. However, with some spare time the other factors might make it worthwhile.
