(Visited 07/2015): Public House is located downstairs in the Venetianís Palazzo, and as with most of these gargantuan indoor casino/shopping complexes it may involve some walking to get to it depending where you start.
The interior features a black and white patterned floor and curved pipes running along the ceiling toward the bar in the back which creates a cool effect. The bar is directly in the back, and there is table seating beyond. Clean and modern decor throughout.
Public House has around 20 taps, with local breweries like Tenaya Creek, Joseph James and Big Dogs plus other craft breweries like AleSmith, Deschutes and New Holland. A few dozen bottled/canned options too from breweries such as Bruery, Cascade, Firestone Walker and Modern Times. Many imported options from Belgium in particular. They also had a couple casks on my visit from Abita (Neapolitan Stout) and CraftHaus (Evocation w/Orange Peel). As others have noted, a mildly annoying digital menu/ordering process is used.
Service at the bar on a very busy Monday early evening was pretty good. The bartender was efficient and happy to explain the special casks.
I did not have any food on this visit.
Overall Las Vegas has come a long way in the last several years in terms of beer, and while this place doesnít stack up to some of the better Vegas beer bars like Aces & Ales or Freakiní Frog (RIP), it is a solid option in the heart of the Strip.
Decent enough place in the Palazzo and adjacent to the Venetian. Very nice dťcor. Hit the place just before closing...so not crowded...but I was able to talk with the bartender...about the place...and the beers. As per the previous reviewer...jumped on the two beers from Modern Times. I also hade a flight of 4 others. This is another of those Vegas "craftbeer" places you donít go out of your way for...but youíre glad they exist if in town for any length of time...even if only for a pint or two on one visit. The problem of course with a craftbeer place in a strip casino...is you can waste a lot of time navigating the strip traffic, getting to your spot in the parking garage (which are not all free anymore), and then sometimes walking a very long way from the garage to your beer with the casinoís typically poor directions to anything they arenít making a killing off of. But hey...thatís Vegas. Check this place out if itís location is convenient to your travels.
Near Yardbird. 25 taps but no beers from Nevada, otherwise good and varied selection. Pints are $12 and half pints $7. Expensive! The iPad menu worked well for me. I had two beers from Modern Times: Iron Sunrise and Orderville IPA, the latter a realy good IPA. Half pints of course. Nice service but ambiance was a bit posh and elegant for my liking.

Visited summer 2015. Nice place, but a bit pretentious, and stupid expensive. Current tap list has 24 beers, only 2 of which are less than $10, and half are $12+. Cans super high markup. Some nice beers there, but really not worth the $.
Nice upscale pub vibe with lots of wood, but also digital iPad menus for beer. Service was good, an on staff cicerone that will do a selected flight if you want. Food was great, but portions a little small. Pretty pricey, but itís one of the only places in Vegas to get a good selection of craft beer. Worth a stop if you have some extra money to blow.
Located within the grand canal shoppes, this bar surprised me with quite an interesting beer list.

I sampled a lemon Saison that was not a Saison, and drank an underwhelming and sweet Founders Porter. The experience next door at Yardbird is so much better, and they serve exclusively Nevada beer. I also have to agree with the previous comment about the iPad draft list, which is unnecessary and buggy.
