We happen to be right in the middle of American Craft Beer Week, which celebrates those smaller, independent breweries that make beer so much more pleasurable to drink than the usual suspects. If you’re missing Las Vegas this week, fear not, the rest of the year is a great time to drink good beers here as well. Check out these five spots to sip some small batch brews in town.
Barley’s Casino & Brewing Company
Make your way off-Strip to the area’s oldest brew pub, which even has its own brewmaster, Jeff “Bubba” Amas, on hand to make recommendations or talk beer with you. The bar has a selection of its own recipes on tap named for familiar Las Vegas local landmarks, such as Blue Diamond Beer and Red Rock Oktoberfest Lager, but don’t let the quaintness of the names fool you: these are serious beers that have earned Barley’s and Bubba several awards. On June 2, celebrate National Bubba Day here with the beer maker himself, as he taps his namesake Hopped Up Lager at 5 p.m., you’ll score yourself a free beer just for showing up. 4500 E. Sunset Rd., 702-458-2739, wildfire.sclv.com
Five50 Pizza Bar
