How to Enjoy the Beer Boom in Las Vegas
As the craft beer scene explodes across America, Las Vegas is taking note and putting its own spin on the craze. Sure, travelers can walk in to any bar on Las Vegas Boulevard and enjoy a cold beer. But in a city known for extravagance, why just sit and sip when you can savor unique suds from around the world?
Whether they are an expert or amateur in brews, German visitors heading to Las Vegas will want the inside scoop on the best beer drinking experiences on The Strip:
- Beer for Breakfast. Acclaimed Chef Hubert Keller’s weekly Beer Brunch at Fleur at Mandalay Bay will have guests swapping mimosas for perfectly paired brews from around the world. Offered every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., the menu features decadent brunch dishes like the Hangover Angus Short Rib Benedict served with crispy potato cake, red wine jus and jalapeño Hollandaise; Carnitas Hash with roasted pork, fingerling potatoes, tomatillo salsa and poached eggs; and Red Velvet Pancakes with cream cheese butter and maple syrup. Every entrée is paired with a seasonal beer, making for an expertly crafted meal.
- Rare & Unusual Brews. You never know what you will find on tap at Beerhaus at The Park where six taps feature a constantly rotating selection of craft beers ranging from local limited releases to rare varieties and hard-to-find foreign ales. The beers on the “Rarities & Unusuals” menu change every day and are only available for a limited time.
- A Taste of the States. Take a journey to sample the best beers and spirits in the country without leaving a barstool. Located at The Mirage, Center Bar offers 10 “Boilermakers”, which includes drinking whiskey in one glass and beer in the other – switching sips between the two and repeating as necessary for the desired effect. Each pairing features a spirit and brew from similar regions from around the U.S. Take a trip to Texas with a Shiner Bock + Garrison Brothers Bourbon – no cowboy boots required; get a taste of New England with a Sam Adams Boston Lager + WhistlePig 10yr Rye Whiskey; or head to the mountains of Colorado with a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter + Woody Creek Rye Whiskey.
