Visited with the family on a recent trip to Vegas. Being the only recognizable place on the Strip with a decent craft selection, we decided on this joint. Located amongst the shops and other restaurants on the main floor of Mandalay Bay, medium sized place and a dive-bar atmosphere with about 20 OK craft taps (some Belgian, DFH, Sierra Nevada and unoffensive local offerings - a wit or two and some pale ales), nothing outstanding or overly enticing. Good friendly service, didn't have to wait for a table when we arrived at around 5pm. An OK regular bottle selection, alot of which is recapitulated when I asked for the "Special Bottle List." Nothing crazy in here, but it's pretty pricey - they had bottles of Abacus and Parabola for $40, and that was the rarest of what they had in store. Above average food, albeit unspectacular - my Kobe beef burger was good, but not the best I've had. I might revisit here if I came back to Vegas, but there was certainly much left to be desired.

Stopped in upon consulting with local BAs via forums.
Very strong selection, though inferior to Todd English. Lots of Belgians and US crafts.
I decided to go with the burger, to see if the place can live up to its name and not only was it priced rather reasonably, but it was pretty delicious.
Eventhough it is located in a mall type setting, the ambiance is inside is pretty tolerable. Some of the other visitors were consuming BMCs, as the name would absolutely attract "beer junkies," that live on Bud Light and other such delicacies, and some of the waitresses, whose natural shapes have been modified by surgeons operating in the fields of plastics, had no shame in not knowing much about the good beer, but nevertheless, for this locale, if you must have craft beer- this is one of the stops that I would recommend.

I stopped in while waiting for my flight home on a recent trip. It seemed like other BAs have enjoyed their visits, so I made this my last stop before heading to the airport. I grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered a burger. Service was quick and I didn't get lost in the shuffle during a shift change, which was nice. The surroundings felt like LV, with a mixture of higher end (stone bartop and dark wood) with campy (lots of neon) elements. The selection was solid, with ~24 taps and ~100 bottles, including ~10 vintage bottles (stuff like FW12&13, Stone VE, etc.). Beer prices were reasonable, barring the vintage bottles, with $6 pints available (there were also 6oz samples for $2.50). My buffalo burger was good, but not exceptional, although the jalapeno bacon and onion rings were quite good. Overall, I was expecting a little more, but didn't leave disappointed.
