Not long ago finding good beer in Vegas was incredibly difficult. About five years ago, I remember walking the Strip for over two hours looking for a half-decent craft beer, only to be left disappointed. Today, the valley has an emerging craft beer scene with offerings in tourist hot spots, specifically in downtown. There are a multitude of breweries and bars with a wide variety of taps, allowing patrons an incredible beer crawl experience through the historic streets around Fremont.
Don’t waste your money on a tour guide! This one mile, six stop beer crawl through Downtown Vegas will take you to the first brewery on Fremont and the oldest tavern in Vegas. Along the way you’ll taste locally crafted beer mixed with some of the best craft brews the world has to offer.
Triple 7 Restaurant & Microbrewery – We start here because of it’s location in the north corner of Downtown. Situated inside Main Street Station Casino Brewery Hotel, you will find $2.50 craft beers 24/7, made steps away from the bar. With popular styles like IPAs, Reds, Pales, and Hefeweizen on tap, 777 offers a style for everyone. Another perk of Main Street Station is being able to enjoy their beer at the casino bar and on the casino floor while you’re gambling.
Address: 200 N Main St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Pizza Rock – We head a couple blocks east from Main Street Station and a block south of The Mob Museum to Pizza Rock. You will find a rotating taplist of craft beers from all over the country along with an impressive can selection. Every beer crawl needs good food along the way and Pizza Rock will not disappoint. Split a pie with your friends or grab some delicious appetizers before making your way to the next stop.
Address: 201 N 3rd St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Chicago Brewing – Nestled inside of the Four Queens on Fremont Street, Chicago Brewing offers a few craft selections. If your group enjoys the occasional cigar, this is your chance to enjoy a stogie with your beer.
Address: Four Queens 202 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Banger Brewing – After feeding the gut, two blocks southeast is the first brewery on Fremont Street, Banger Brewing. While known for El Heffe, a jalepeño hefeweizen, Banger Brewing offers premier Las Vegas craft beer. Before you head out, book a tour for your group to give you a short recovery before heading to your next stop.
Address: 450 Fremont St #135, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Park on Fremont – Across the street is Park on Fremont, hosting indoor and outdoor seating, and pouring a fine selection of craft beers and domestics from across the country. Park is a friendly place to enjoy incredible food and beer.
Address: 506 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Atomic Liquors – Our sixth and final destination is the oldest bar in Las Vegas. Atomic Liquors is an eccentric stop that offers some of the best cocktails in Vegas, but they also serve a rotating list of rare craft beers from around the world. Just a couple blocks away from the Fremont Street Experience, Atomic Liquors is a welcomed sip of nostalgia for the snobbiest craft beer snobs.
