Feb 2012. Iíd sum up my thoughts about this place like this: itís too bad itís in Vegas. Unfortunately what would otherwise be a pretty cool beer bar has to fit the suburban Vegas mold, with video poker machines built into the bar, incessant smoke, weird lighting, and an ubiquitous blinding array of flat panel TVs, in an old stand alone bar thatís seen itís better days, on the eastern edge of the Vegas sprawl. I visited on a weekday night, fairly early. The small crowd was certainly all local, and was evenly split between Bud Light drinkers and folks who seemed to be exploring new beer frontiers. The bar staff was super, super friendly and actually quite personable which is nice novelty in Vegas. The beer list was sturdy -- certainly the deepest draft lineup Iíve seen in town, as the availability list here illustrates. Although I didnít eat, the menu looked to offer standard pub fare. Go for great service and hard to find beers, but expect that murky, off-strip feel.

(Visited 08/2011 3 days in a row for the 2nd annual Strong Beer fest): The bar is located on the east side of Vegas near Samís Town on South Neill. There is a decent-sized private lot on the side and rear.
The inside is split-level with the wraparound bar on the lower portion, complete with the requisite inlaid video gambling games. Some breweriana on the walls and TVs all around. A sort of biker bar feel through and through.
Difficult to comment on the typical tap lineup as it changed daily during my visits for the festival. Over 20 taps in total. On my visit there were one-offs and specialty beers from Deschutes, Stone, The Bruery, Joseph James, Tenaya Creek, Mikkeller and many more. Over 50 bottled beers available too.
Service was consistently good on our visit, and because we spent hours there 3 days straight we got to know the bartenders pretty well (the wife winning money at Keno each day was fun too).
Food at Aces and Ales is pretty good. The sandwiches are solid and the sides we tried were all good.
Overall this place is one of the standouts in Vegas, and it will definitely be on the short list for future visits.

The best beer bar in Las Vegas, hands down, with an excellent selections of taps and bottles, great events (Strong Beer Fest), good pub food (Arrogant Bastard Steak Wrap), good service (thanks "Sandra"). Dark ambiance with 80-90s rock, very cool.

Got here by using the free shuttle bus from Downtown (back of California Hotel) to Sams Town and walked the mile or so from there.
Late afternoon on a warm, sunny May day (2010). Couldnít see a thing when we walked in, it didnít get much brighter when our eyes adjusted to the darkness. As you enter there is a room off to your left, donít stumble into there because it is just a space with tables and chairs in, you want the square shaped bar which is straight in front, lite by a few neon beer adverts and sports screens, it is down a couple of steps or a ramp.
Lindsay looked after us and anybody and everybody else, about eight max during our three beer and meal stay. Rock music filled the room, not over loud, just enough so you couldnít hold a conversation without raising your voice up a few decibel levels.
I started with a pint of Rogue íDead Guy Aleí which was delivered in a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale glass. My wifes draught also came in the same branded glass as mine. My other two beers were just as good as the first, these coming from Joseph James and the Dogfish Head Brewery. Didnít take note of the wifes beers, but they tasted good too (I always check out her beer, just in case it is poison or something).
I ordered a basic burger and fries with everything, the wife a Garden Salad with Chicken, both were good, produced by an under worked (on our visit) cook.
Well worth the effort to get here (3 hour drive to London, 10 hour flight, half hour taxi ride, half hour shuttle bus and half hour walk).
It isnít cosy, nor over friendly, we didnít feel threatened or anything, it just seemed írough and readyí more than íwelcomingí. Lindsay was fine, worried about her young son taking some girl to the pictures and chatting to a couple of regulars who were drinking bottles of Lite something or other.
The draught beer selection however seemed very welcoming, the bottled choices challenging too, Iíll revisit if I ever return to LV.

A $25 cab ride from the strip ($38 if your cabbie gets "lost" like ours did), but we thought it was worth it. Great tap selection, all $6 (some are not full pints), and an amazing "reserve" list that goes back to 2004 for Stone Vertical Epic and back to XIII for FW Reserve. Our server was excellent, and we let her try a few of the bottles we purchased-- in return she generously gave us several free bottles of quality stuff (we did not hint or ask, she just brought them over). We devoured the spaghetti pizza (not gourmet, but freaking good!). It has a dark interior, but not intimidating or ugly. A few pool tables and flat screens. Funny mix of beer-geek crowd and local Bud Light retirees, but it added to the charm. Worth the journey off the strip-- we will return for sure.

Stopped in on a Friday, 20 taps nice selection lot of high alcohol beers on tap only a few under 7.5% and itís not dinner yet so the 20 tap list was really smaller for me. Had a couple pints and wings and had a good time. Wait staff were friendly and hard working. Good destination.

$25 taxi ride from Strip. Large sign on Nellis Blvd. Red brick interior with 30foot peaked ceiling. Useful since smoking is allowed inside! 20place dormice bar with video machines. Rock and roll tunes. Half dozen silent TVs showing sports. Afternoon crowd middle-aged males.
Breakfast 24 hours. Burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas. Side room with two pool tables. No exterior windows, spot lights over bar and beer list chalkboard.
20 plus taps and large craft and import bottled selection. Veins hosts beer e nets and monthly homebrew club meetings. If indoor smoking was ended this would be a great beer hangout. But donít the Saturday following the SNAFU club meeting, supplies will be greatly diminished.

A very cool place, maybe my favorite Beer Stop in Vegas. This place is DARK inside, especially after the ultra-bright sun of Nevada in July! Almost a bit off-putting how dark it is. Ambience is a bit off-putting to be frank, but our server was very friendly and quickly put us at ease. Tap selection was pretty outstanding, with some surprising rarities, bottle selection also looked pretty strong. Food was acceptable, rather standard bar food, though prices were surprisingly reasonable, considering how expensive Vegas normally is. Although initially put off by the slightly intimidating feel of the place, I ended up enjoying Aces & Ales the most out of all the places in Vegas I visited. Absolutely canít-miss if youíre in the area.

Visited for a Joseph James debut. Kinda like you combined a biker bar with a college bar for the ambiance. Lots of TVs, video poker and pool tables. Food looked pretty good but I didnít try anything; the sweet potato fries were tempting. Fairly unique tap selection that included a nice splash of locals. Weird location but probably nice for locals. This location could quite possibly be a test case for possible expansions down the road. Probably go back for another special event/local tapping.

Unassuming place east of the strip by approximately five miles. In a sketchier area of town. Smoking is permitted. Open 24 hours. Fourteen flat sceens that I can count. Service was attentive, friendly, and experienced. Of course it wasnít very busy when we were there. Itís quite dark inside. Hard to see. Particularly if youíve just come in from the sun. Menu is upper end pub food and very good. Horseshoe shaped bar with tables lining the perimeter of the establishment. A pool table on either end of the building. Taps of 20 beers. Several bottles too. A bit on the pricy side. Decent happy hour. On Sundays you can get half off of all growlers that are over $10.
