On the other side of where I was staying, after an atrocious stop at Ellis Island, I figured how could I not give this place a try during one of those "you're on your own" type of lunch dilemmas during a conference.

First thing nice, its not a casino brewpub, there are actually windows in this place! Not dark, drab etc. . . Easy parking, televisions are strategically placed and offer a diverse group of programming. Place isn't packed, but it isn't filled with undesirables either. Quality, you've had Gordon Beirsch before I'm sure, mostly Germanic styles of beers, not doing much of the American renaissance style of craft beer thing going on here, usual selections at a chain brewpub.

They really encourage samples of their beer, I guess the only real disappointment was the lack of choices. Usual stuff on tap that I can find at Safeway. But hey, these guys have some killer garlic fries, take that fat guy sitting next to me at the conference.

If you don't mind the walk from the strip then this is a great stop. Even if you don't like walking, do it. Just stop at Ray's for a roadie and beat it. Plus if you are looking for a brewpub, it beats the heck out of another close by. My server was great and he gave me samples to taste as well. Nice look with the tanks and brewhouse. Selection was great. Had a pizza but it could have used a little more colour. Beer was great. Had a Fest first. Very pleasing although a little dry. Some dextrin malt would have fixed it up nicely. Lovely lingering hop flavour and great colour. Hefeweizen was next and that was great although their pronunciation notes were off. Bubble gum, banana, and slight clove tastes, reminded me of another beer I had with White labs Hefeweizen yeast... COlour was nice and proper glassware was used. Ordered the Amber which is their most popular... I must have got a bad batch cause mine tasted like a tin can. Overly metallic and undrinkable. My server replaced it with a Pilsener without any issues. That was another great beer although it had a great hop flavour and perfect straw colour, I think it actually had too much flavour compared to other pilseners. Still it is worth a shout as it was pleasing. I would definitely head back there and happily drink a few more pints... if only they would drop the price a tad.

Came in for dinner and beers with some business associates. The decor was modern, open and high quality. The beer was as expected--high quality, but unexciting. As always, this location concentrated on German styles with no real distinctive characteristics. I tried the Bohemian Pilsner and Marzen. They were both well executed but seemed to follow a middle-of-the-road, take no chances philosophy.

The food was definitely the high point. They gave generous quantities from a tasty, eclectic menu. The service started off well, but our waiter seemed to lose interest and left us alone too much. he could have sold several more beers by being more attentive. The prices were reasonable, especially for a place just a block or two off the Strip.

As I approached, I could not help but be struck by the back-lit bank of FVs that ran along Paradise Road. They just screamed "immense". The entry was on the opposite side if the building, through their parking lot. Entering, the m.d.s. was to the immediate left and was chock full of logo items. Once inside, the square, marble-topped bar sat directly in the center of the space. The bar area was surrounded by an eclectic mix of booths, high tables and chairs, long tables, and standard restaurant tables and chairs. It was a case of something for everyone, including a seat at the bar for me. The far right wall, nearest the road, had the immense kitchen off the the left and also fronted an outdoor patio area. The far left wall, nearest the parking lot, featured the immense brewhouse, behind glass. Billy was my excellent server.

Did I mention my now-ravening hunger? Between bad beer and not wanting to consume large quantities of food while riding Greyhound, I was ready to eat road kill goat anus. Fortunately, that evening's Specials included Seafood Stuffed Chicken Breast, which was a much better alternative. Soapbox Time: Again, pooh-pooh the chains all you like, but I will continue to champion their cause. I was really glad that I held out for their food since it was neither disappointing nor overwhelming and especially since I had actually considered Prime Rib elsewhere for a moment. If happiness for me comes in the form of a chain brewpub, who are you to disagree? Further, my dear Aunt Kathy loves her G.B. in Washington, DC and any time that I can get her to come out and indulge with me, it's a double-plus bonus.

Beers: There was nothing overwhelming, but even a hophead has to surface for air once in a while, kind of like eating ... salmon. Golden Export - 5.0; Hefeweizen - 5.5; Martzen - 5.7; Schwartzbier - 4.29; Blonde Bock - 7.0; and the seasonal Sommerfest Kolsch - 5.3. The latter was my pick.
