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.
Great selection of bottled beers, I was really impressed. Alot of off the wall releases from Stone, and Dogfish Head. The owners take pride in keeping a well rounded stock of tap beers, usually at high ABV. Great place, specially if you are visiting Las Vegas and jonesing from some dank brew!
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.
Great place. Waitresses were very nice. Played several games of billiards with my daughter. Food was very good, and beer selection on tap is worth the trip from the strip. I went back a second time it was such a good experience. We were also there for their 4th anniversary, so all beers were $4.
The only bad thing about this place, people can smoke in here. Ate at lunch. Great breat burger and onion rings. 20 beers on tap most are pretty creative and unique. Awesome list. Nice atmosphere other than the smoke. Quick service. Really enjoyed this place Best in Las Vegas by far.
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.
(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.
Cool friendly place, nice staff, cool local customers and great line up of beers.... worth checking out...

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.
