They seem to take a serious interest in beer, offering dozens of taps and bottles, local, regional and imports all represented well. Six beer engines, though none were serving when I visited. Orval and Schlenkerla in bottles and a couple of local hoppy things to sample and review. Solid kitchen as well.
Fun place for lunch or dinner and some beers inside Aria. Cool atmosphere. Good service. Fried pickles were awesome. The rest of the food was good not great. Did enjoy duck sliders. Prices like all Vegas are hilariously high. Tap pours of semi dumpy beers were up to $14 but for some reason they had $8 bottles of old rasputin! So thatís what we all ordered. Also $11 for Orval served surprisingly in an Orval chalice! Fun atmosphere. Tap list had some pretty good things, extensive, with much smaller bottle list.
Inside the Crystals right at the entrance to Aria. Very modern decor for a pub. Decent selection overall, especially for LV. Service was very uneven after being there twice. First night server was beer knowledgeable, second night dude had absolutely no clue. Also, their beer menu is idiotic. Except for the dozen or so regular taps, all the rotating ones are only listed by brewery so you have to ask the server what each beer is from each brewery. Thatís not fun even when your server knows the beers as ours did first night. But when dude canít even tell you a single one then itís VERY annoying. If you donít want to be a beer bar, donít. Anyway, food was ok and itís hard to complain too loudly about any place on the strip offering a few dozen tasty beers.
In happy hour (3pm-6pm and after 10pm) itís great value as the tap beers are half price. The service was always friendly and the staff had a fair knowledge of the beers they were selling. Itís quite a nice atmosphere inside away from the bright lights and sleaze of the strip. Selection was good. They had a variety of styles and 3 casks too.
I went here 3 times on a 4-day trip, so yeah, I liked it. The best deal is happy hour (3-6pm every day)--half price pints makes them affordable ($7 for St Bernardus on tap!). Service is pretty good, but I think itís quicker at the bar. They have a good ambiance, itís usually pretty busy and they have games & stuff. Selection is good - they have a lot of taps, seasonals, semi-rare beers (at least on tap). Bottled selection isnít as good as the tap, and the bombers are overpriced.
Kind of in an awkward spot between Aria and the shops but itís a really beautiful pub, with decent food and relatively shitty service. Great tap list, including a few casks, some limited Firestone Walker stuff. Enjoyed several cask union jacks, but the happy hour price on them was still $13, so yeah super expensive.
