When I pulled up on a Saturday at about lunch time, it looked to be closed. But, when I walked in, I realized that it was just that the restaurant area was empty. A non-smoking sign alluded to there being two bars, but I was directed to one immediately to my left.
It was dark, a little smoky, and there were actually quite a few people in there. Lots of regulars that the bartender obviously knew by name. Very few of them were drinking the house beer, all of them were playing video poker.
I deliberately sat in a seat with no video poker (I don't gamble, sorry) and asked about the beers. They had a very typical line-up of standards: light, pale, heff, etc., but also had two seasonals on tap: an imperial stout and a Belgian dubbel. That sold me, but the bartender offered up tastes of both without me even asking.
I really liked the imperial stout but I just didn't want to go up against a 9% at lunchtime, so I went with the dubbel. That beer struck me initially as very nice but, as I downed the rest of the glass (a fancy glass), I liked it less. It was too carbonated for my tastes and a lot of the more subtle flavors that came out were less than inviting. I still thought it was cool that they had a dubbel on tap at all though.
I also had food: the ruben. It came with choice of sides, but fries were the only attractive one to me. It was very good and that's good because, at $10, I would have been upset otherwise.
The place emitted more weirdness as I hung around longer. They have some promotion where, if you get a 4-of-a-kind on the machines, you get a free bottle of wine. Why not a growler? I mean, it's a brewpub... Maybe it was the dim lighting and the sort of creepy Vegas folks in the place, but I just couldn't get into it here.
That dubbel cost me $6. Yeah...

The first thing you see when you enter is the copper vats in the two story brew room. There are both casino bar and lounge style bar areas in addition to a large separate dining room with booth and table seating. When we visited there were 8 house brews on tap and I enjoyed both the Black Star and the Imperial Stout of Order. The menu includes a nice array of appetizers (Filet Mignon Sliders!), pasta, pizza, sandwiches and entrees. There is a good size parking lot out front.

This place could almost be like any brewpub in any town in the USA, rather than being a Vegas brewpub. It is located in a standalone building at the corner of a strip shopping center.

They do have machines built into the bar, but otherwise this is a typical modern brewpub. Bar on the left and restaurant on the right.

They have a good range of beers including a standard double IPA and seasonals like a Belgian tripple. Great happy hour prices including on the seasonals and high gravs. Free beer while playing the games.

If you have a car, this is a good stop, especially coming back from Red Rock Canyon. But if you don't have a car, just visit the downtown location where they have most of the beers available.
