Trendy upscale look, high ceilings, lots of well dressed staff. Food looked and smelled good but we didn’t eat. 7 beers sampled, all were cookie cutter expect the abbey dubbel, which I suspect is a clone from a well known rocky mountain brewery. Overall a decent place, a little overpriced, though.
A large restaurant, pub and gambling hall in the suburbia of Las Vegas. The bar/gambling side is smoking while the other side is not, though you are not entirely away from it. I found a plush booth and made myself comfortable while I sampled their beers. I did not eat anything, but what I saw looked like oversized portions of 'meat and taters' type stuff. The beer was average.
(Visited 04/2008): CBC is located on Fort Apache Rd not too far off 215. They have a decent sized private lot and there are other lots in the strip mall nearby if necessary.
The interior is large and is two floors, with the bar and restaurant separated (probably for the smokers). There is a second level for cocktails and cigars that I did not check out. The brewing eqipment is viewable behind large windows behind the bar, and there is a nice panorama of Chicago around the ceiling area. The only negatives to the atmosphere (which seem to be at every Las Vegas brewpub) are smoking, bartop electronic gambling and being overly dark.
CBC has 9 beers on draught and a sampler of their beers is $8.99. A couple of them are seasonals. The beers range from Witbier to Stout with a couple interesting options like a Strong Ale made with honey. Overall the beers are average to above average.
Service was pretty good on a weekday afternoon. The bartender was fairly attentive despite me not pouring cash into video poker.
I did not try any food on the visit.
Overall this is a pretty nice brewpub a few miles away from the Strip. It is definitely better than the typical brewpub/casinos that are common in the area.
Visited here on a hot afternoon in early August 2006. Not as dark as some have said - they must have gone to the bar side - the restaurant is nice and well lit. Had six on tap - seem to rotate fairly regularly. They offer a 5 glass sampler. Food is typical brewpub fare - perhaps a notch above average. The Black Star Stout was their best offering when I was there. Beer is standard brewpub offering - no style stretchers here - but all ok.
Cool building...lots of space in a brick standalone building in a shopping center. Cigar lounge upstairs, bar downstairs, family restaurant downstairs. Beers were nothing special, but still...$9 for 9 samplers is nothing to scoff at. Food was very good to excellent...wings (including legit malt yo face off ghost pepper wings), burgers and pulled pork mac & cheese. I’d go back for the food, service was great too, even though even the best of the beers were forgettable.

Best of the Vegas brewpubs in my opinion. It’s pretty small an nothing too special on the inside, but the beers were all great and the food was terrific (4 of us shared a bunch of appeys). The 9 beer sampler tray is a bargain! There was a single bartender/waitress running the whole show and she was awesome!
"We can’t seat you in the actual pub. They’re filming a Sweedish reality in there today" So begins my visit to Chicago breweing at the Four Queens. Nice looking, from what I could see. Our waitress was extremely attentive and the food was pretty tasty.
