Really good by both Vegas and general standards. Staff were attentive, nice and knowledgable. Sadly enough, the place is really off (15 min drive from the Strip, about $25 taxi ride). Too dark inside, but you get used to it. The selection wasnít the biggest Iíve ever seen, but the bottles that they had were very well selected. Had a BBQ Chicken pizza that was OK. Cheaper than the strip.

Cliff  (62) The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio | July 6, 2012
Very dark video poker lounge with a nice selection of craft beers. All drafts were $6, only the size varied. I had a Stone Ruination 10th Anniversary and a NB Tart Lychee. I would have had a few more, but the service absolutely sucked. The only bartender would disappear for 10 - 15 minutes at a time while everybody at the bar sat their with empty glasses It was very disappointing. I finally got sick of it and my wife and I paid and left.

Visited during the Stone Stone Tap Takeover May of 2012. I was greeted by Kim who was very friendly and had a variety of suggestions for me from Stone. I tried 2 of there smoked porters and Ruination which were excellent. I noticed they had some great beers in the cooler. If I had a partner I would have indulged in some Firestone Anniversary beers or 2010 Abyss. Guess Iíll have to go back.

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.

Pretty cool place that has a large bar and about 20 taps. Several beers are unavailable in Arizona so that was a treat. They do growlers of all beers which is pretty nice. I got a burger and I would say its above average. The single biggest drawback is the smoking locals who seems to like chain smoking.

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.

Nice place thatís near the strip. The tables are a little small but the friendliness more than made up for it. 26 draft beers to choose from is bigger than most microbreweries have. Prices are reasonable. We have had quite a few food items now. The Southwest Wings are a favorite. Salads, nachos, and sandwiches are all good. Iíll try the steak next. Itís our local bar now.

This place is well worth Ś detour (10 Min taxi from the strip) for beer entusiasts. It might not look like much at first glance, but donít be fooled by the dull brick walls - this place has a good atmosphere, super service and quite a few surprises on the beer menu, i.e. several of Stones vertical epic ales. Good selection on tap. Bar food, but fresh and tasty (even my girfriend enjoyed it :-) Entertainment: Pool, pluss sports on TV. Both owners were present, both happy to talk beer and provide samples of their own favourites.
