Best Beer: Las Vegas Breweries and Bars for Brews

Best Breweries on or near the Las Vegas Strip

What’s the best beer in Las Vegas? We couldn’t just choose one, so we rounded up all our favorite places to enjoy a beer in Vegas.

Ellis Island Casino and Brewery

Ellis Island has called Las Vegas home since 1968, and Las Vegas locals have loved it since. They poured their very first glass of beer in 1998, and they quickly became Nevada’s favorite. Ellis Island received a “Best of Vegas” award from the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2015 and 2016.

Their classics and seasonal selection keep regulars coming back time and again. Which is good, because Ellis Island brews over 1,000,000 glasses of beer every year and someone has to enjoy all that frothy goodness!

Ellis Island Casino & Brewery is closest to our Bally’s/Paris Station, near the intersection of Flamingo & Koval.

Sin City Brewing Company

Sin City Brewing opened in Las Vegas in 2003, well before the craft beer scene exploded. It’s fair to say that Sin City Brewing has a long history of excellent beer brewed in Las Vegas. In fact, they’ve grown from one brewery on the Strip, to four!

The original Sin City Brewing company is inside the Miracle Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. You can also find this Las Vegas watering hole inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian and on the Harmon Corner (Harmon & Las Vegas Blvd). Finally, visit Sin City Brewing at their newest location at Grand Bazaar Shops in front of Bally’s.

Best Beer Parks, Gardens and Patios 

Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas

Are you looking for somewhere to grab a beer and soak in the views? Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas is the perfect place to enjoy your favorite craft brew. They have over 100 different beer selections to choose from, many of which are craft.

Beer Park has some of the best views on the Las Vegas Strip, including a picture-perfect view of the Bellagio fountains. Communal seating and lawn games, like giant Jenga,  create a relaxing and enjoyable environment for meeting friends and soaking up the Las Vegas sunshine. This is our pick for best beer park in Las Vegas!

It’s a snap to get to Beer Park from the Las Vegas Monorail. Hop on at any of our stations and ride to the Bally’s / Paris Station. From there, make your way to the front of Paris Las Vegas, up to Beer Park and straight to the bar to order your favorite. Cheers!

Umami Burger, Beer Garden & Sports Book at SLS Las Vegas

We know you’re looking for great beer in Las Vegas. At Umami Burger, great beer is combined with a widely-loved burger and an electric environment.

Head over to SLS Las Vegas to check out the Umami Burger Beer Garden. The outdoor patio overlooks the Las Vegas Strip and provides the perfect place to enjoy a craft beer, and get something to phenomenal eat. The truffle fries are excellent with an IPA or Pilsner.

As an added bonus, Umami Burger is perfect for sports fans, especially if you’re looking to make a bet. Beer-lovers will also find the William Hill Sports Book just inside.

Getting to Umami Burger, Beer Garden and Sportsbook couldn’t be easier! Just ride the Las Vegas Monorail to our most northern stop, the SLS Station. From there, take the pedestrian bridge and head inside the SLS Las Vegas.

Beerhaus at The Park Vegas

Beerhaus is one of the newest additions to the Las Vegas Strip, giving beer-lovers one more thing to celebrate. You can find Beerhaus at The Park which is adjacent to the T-Mobile Arena.

Beerhaus has a selection of local and regional craft beers, plus a happy hour every day from 2-6 pm. We love Beerhaus because it’s the ideal place to grab a beer before a show or game at the T-Mobile Arena. Not headed to a concert?  Beerhaus hosts live music Thursday through Monday nights.

Las Vegas Bars with the Best Brew Selection 

Yardhouse at The LINQ

Yardhouse may not be new to Las Vegas visitors, but it’s sure hard to be the selection and the location! We love Yardhouse at The LINQ because it’s located in of our favorite parts of the Las Vegas Strip. The LINQ Promenade is an oasis right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The promenade is framed by the iconic High Roller, and there’s something for everyone here.

Sure you may know Yardhouse, but are you familiar with their Chalkboard Series? It’s a selection of draft beers that rotate each month. There’s one thing we know for sure, Yardhouse has the best selection of craft beers on the Las Vegas Strip. Plus, they serve them by the yard!

Michael Mina Pub 1842 at MGM Grand

What year was the pilsner invented? If you answered “1842”, you are correct! The Michael Mina Pub 1842 at MGM is named for that obscure piece of beer knowledge. Michael Mina’s pub is our pick for best beer and food offering in Las Vegas.

Michael Mina Pub 1842 offers craft cocktails in addition to 30 craft beers from across the country. Even better, they pair the selection with an extensive list of burgers and a full BBQ menu. We love the PB Crunch Burger which is served with pimento cheese, bacon jampotato chips, and peanut butter. It is as delicious as it is creative.

ameriCAN Beer & Cocktails at The LINQ Promenade

We’re sending you back to the LINQ Promenade for another one of our picks. This time, head over to ameriCAN Beer & Cocktails. ameriCAN has a delightful section of craft beer, but there’s a twist (or should we say pop). All of their beers are served by the can. They offer nearly 70 different beers served in cans. They actually seek to provide a beer from each of the 50 U.S. states. Does it get better than that?

Check out their patio and lawn games including cornhole and beer pong. They also have Champong, which is precisely what it sounds like, beer pong with Champagne. Plus, they celebrate Independence Day every day with a power hour special: $1 drafts and well drinks from 7:04 pm – 8:04 pm.
