3fourths (1569) Boulder, Colorado | February 4, 2016| Updated February 5, 2016
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.
A upscale fun and trendy bar in the casino shopping area. Very nice with great service for the crazy crowds. Beer list is good and extensive, with nothing mind blowing but good. Food is great, I have a lamb meatball sandwich which was amazing. Price is the big issue, very expensive and no deals at all. If you can afford it you will have fun, but I was cringing quite a bit.
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 07/2015): Public House is located downstairs in the Venetian’s 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 doesn’t stack up to some of the better Vegas beer bars like Aces & Ales or Freakin’ 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 décor. 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 don’t go out of your way for...but you’re 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 casino’s typically poor directions to anything they aren’t making a killing off of. But hey...that’s Vegas. Check this place out if it’s location is convenient to your travels.
4th July 2014. I liked this place even though the prices were a little on the high side. We sat in the front area with a lattice screened wall separating us from the main tables and restaurant bit. Low seating around an oval glass topped table for us. Good selection of tap and bottled beers served by a very pretty young lady, liked the iPad beer menu too. We ate snack food, again not cheap but good. The actual place is a bit dark, but it is well appointed and fairly classy.
Decent for Vegas but overall very weak. Prices are sky high. They do have a nice selection of Firestone Walkers bottles but the price is around $65. Server was nice and very knowledgable about the beer. I was expecting some new tickets, but not much there. I’d come there in a pinch.
Visited here while staying at the Venetian for a bachelor party. Convenient location! Hip, modern, low-lit ambience. Sat at the marble bar. Bartenders were cool, friendly, and seemed to know their stuff, particularly when suggesting beers for people who didn’t know much. 24 taps and a solid list. Close to 200 bottles with a nice range. Prices were high but it’s the Strip so they were in line with expectations. Selection beat the Burger Bar by a long shot. You’re not going to do much better on the Strip than this. Good spot, an lucky to have it in the hotel we stayed in.
