U-shaped bar is the center of the action, with a few tables. Beyoned the pool tables in the back is the brewery. Although this place has gaming consoles on the bar, no one was playing. And although they allow smoking, no on was smoking. Could this place be mostly about the beer??

(04/2008): Tenaya Creek is located right of Cheyanne Ave near I-95. They have a private lot that is pretty good-sized.
The interior features a lot of stone and woodwork, and the U-shaped bar is near the entrance, with a billiards area between that and the restaurant seating. The brewing equipment is in the rear and is visibile behind glass. They have a flyer advising customers interested in a tour to contact the staff. The bar features video gambling (as pretty much every brewpub does) but without the dark and smoky feel that so many of them have.
Tenaya has 7 beers on draught, 3 of which are seasonals, as well as a guest tap (Deschutes on my visit). Some bottles are available as well but nothing jumped out at me. The beers are available in a sampler for $9. The beers run from Pils to Hefe to Robust Porter and are generally above average. The Robust Porter and Black Widow were both standouts.
The service was good on an early weekday afternoon. The bartender knew the Tenaya beers and the guest beer pretty well.
I did not try any food on this visit.
Overall this place is definitely worth a visit for someone with a car who wants to get away from the mayhem of the Strip for an evening.

This was my favorite local when I lived in LV. Excellent German-style (mostly) beers served by a knowledgeable (mostly) staff. The food is excellent, too. Las Vegasí #1 beer, #2 food. RE-RATE as of 8/06. I returned while in town for business and was saddened to see the decline of Tenaya Creek into a 24-hour slot bar. They decimated their once nice dining room to add three pool tables, and the menu was significantly downgraded. I dindít think the old standard Ringtail was quite as good, but I guess it was still good. So was the food. There are shimmers of the old favorite, but it isnít anywhere near as nice as it used to be.

A classic brewpub decor, very nice environment, but still allowing smoking (NV law). Brewery is visible behing a glass partition. Decor is nice wooden meets modern, with video poker at bar. Sampler is available, 6 X 4on., for 7$. / solid guest taps: Deschutes Abyss, Double Bastard and a Big Dog DIPA. Beer is very decent, with a few gems.

Made a quick stop on the long roadtrip home. Seems like a nice place with 10ish taps, a large open bar and a few tables. Of course, it is Vegas so the bar has a lot of space taken up with video poker machines. Although I did not get a closer look, the brewing equipment was visible through large windows at the back of the bar. Staff was friendly. I only had time to try a single beer. Seems like a nice enough place.

Nice full bar with the house beers along with a few nice house taps. Video poker machines in the bar, a few TVís, pool tables and darts. Friendly bartender. A nice place not too far out of town to get out of the rat race and relax.

Decently far off the strip (~$30 cab ride). Met up here with Belgianbeergal and her husband to share some beers we had brought. Upscale feeling (unlike the close by big dogs). Service was nice, samples were free. Not horribly smokey or video poker focused. Some TVís. The beer I sampled was decent, although I am sad I missed out on the Oaked Barley Wine. Guest taps looked pretty good (included the Abyss). They do NOT make food anymore.

As others have said...probably the best craft brewery in Vegas...and thankfully off the strip. They have a large and well made lineup with a variety of hoppy beers as well as pilsners, stouts, and some German styles. The atmosphere is very nice with all the wood although some might find it a bit dark after sundown. I liked the glass holders for the flights...very original twirling metal holders similar to candle holders. Although in craftbeer rich areas this might be considered only a bit above average...in Vegasí limited craft market...itís a star!

Imperial Stout, Barleywine, IIPA, 6 regular beers and 2 reat guest taps. Big airy place. Unfortunately, the restaurant itself was closed down. However, this is the best brewpub in Vegas hands down in terms of selection. Smoking is allowed and they do have video poker.

A nice restaurant that makes beer. The beer varied from OK on down. Nothing stood out when I was there. The food was good, the service so-so.
