Boulder Dam Brewing company

This brewery is in the old part of Boulder City. It has a modern open seating area with Serving tanks right up front behind the bar. They brew extract beers. The wait staff is friendly. They also have outdoor seating. The first beer I tried was the Cincuenta Cerveza. This has limes in it, 50 of them, hence the name, Nice lime aroma up front, clear straw color, with a lite refreshing flavor. It has a slight hop bite but it could be from the limes as well. The next beer was the Powder Monkey Pilsner, named for the dam workers who packed all the explosives when Hoover Dam was built. It has a lite floral hop character and lite sweet malt with some mild hops to balance. This is a good session beer with Northern brewer, Tettnanger and Styrian Golding hops. The next beer was the Hells Hole Hefeweizen. It was cloudy with the typical banana clove aroma. This is a good beer for style, well balanced with a lite hop flavor. The next beer was called Aggregate Amber. This copper colored ale derives it's name from the crushed rock aggregate which makes up three quarters of the mass of the Dam. This beer has some crystal malt with hop aroma. It has a nice mild malty flavor, another good session beer. These beers are surprisingly good for extract beers! The next beer was the High Scaler IPA. This beer has fresh cascade hops thrown right into the fermenter. This beer has a moderate citrus floral hop aroma. It has a moderate maltiness and hop bitterness, maybe slightly lite on the IPA side, more like a Pale Ale to this hop head. None the less a good beer , just not in the True Northwest IPA hopiness. The last beer was Grandma Daisy's Cough Medicine, a "cocoa" stout. It is chocolate in color, more like a porter. Oh wow, big cocoa aroma, almost like a sweet cocoa candy bar or brownies. A smooth cocoa flavor, kind of like a liquid brownie or cocoa chocolate cake. Light on the stout like flavors but they do come thru. I would like to brew a beer like this. Take a growler home of this stuff!

I didn't try the food here as I was on a tight time frame.

This brewery is definately worth the stop. If in Las Vegas, take a little drive southeast and check out this place, you won't be disapointed.

They sell t/shirts, pint glasses and they have some cool coasters.

Nice little brewpub located in Boulder City which is located a few miles from the Hoover Dam, a good place to grab some food before or after a visit.

The brewery is located in the historic downtown downtown area of Boulder City. A fairly small building with probably only 15 or so tables and a fairly small bar.

We tried the orange ginger beer, definitely the most interesting and different selection. Definitely worth a try. Also had the IPA and Stout, neither was very memorable or particularly flavorful. They had 3 other selections, but didn't try them.

They have a full food menu, but didn't have time to eat.

Parking is available on the steet.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

Home brew style, unfiltered. Their IPA is my favorite, and the favorite of regulars by far. They have eight SS casks, all brewing is done in them, and at any one time they have 3-6 different beers on tap. Service can be slow at times, there is no doghouse for the taps so the bartenders have to scurry back and forth. Which is good in that there's no beer lines to be cleaned or left uncleaned etc... Although sometimes they just get caught up shooting the breeze with someone for too long.

Food is so-so. Nothing that will knock your socks off. The beer garden outside was nice but a freak snowstorm ended that and the city won't let him replace it as it was. They have live music outside most Fri and Sat nights. They have four TVs with sports on them most of the time. They wore out the dam documentary dvd ;)

I've only been to this dam place once, but would go again.

Quiet little brewpub in a downtown area of shops and restaurants. Nice outdoor sitting area. Bar sits 15-20 people plus 15-20 tables. Continuous historical footage of the building of the dam shown on big screens.

Beers are dispensed directly from large serving tanks behind the bar. Nothing too exciting beer-wise, but the IPA was nice.

Worth a quick stop if you a heading from Vegas to see the dam.
