I seriously nearly walked right past this place, but it's really quite easy to find right next to the Coyote Ugly in NY, NY. It's very new and clean, but the location isn't great because it's right out in the lobby and there's lots of people walking all over the place.
Decent selection on tap, nothing special in bottles. No macro's on any of the 24 taps which was good. I got a Rogue Brutal Bitter which tasted a bit watered down to me. They also had the Anchor and Sierra Nevada seasonals, Arrogant Bastard, Moose Drool and some others. Didn't blow me away but this is Vegas, and it's hard to find anything better than a Guiness most places.
Prices were ok, it was like 6-7 bucks for I think 9 ounces. Not great, but again, it's Vegas. Chatted a bit with the bartender who was a real nice guy. Said he had never really tried much beer before he started working there, but that he'd been drinking a few different brews every week. Told me that he figured out the macros are all the same, but that this was real beer. I told him to keep spreading the gospel...but sadly everybody else at the bar was ordering crap. Ah well.
No food, but they did offer free bar snacks so that's a plus.
If you're in NY, it's an easy place to get a decent pint, but not nearly as good as Burger Bar IMO.

Certainly not what I expect from a beer bar, but then again isn't this thea case with everything in this town? Even knowing what to look for, I nearly missed the place after reaching the top of the escallators. It just blends in with all of the other lights and visuals in New York, New York Casino.
I didn't mind the open-corner, exposed location that overlooks the casino floor. Nor did I mind the passer-bys, as this is Las Vegas.
The selection didn't exactly knock my socks off, but do have a nice array of Belgians, Micros, and Imports -- I'd guess about 50 different beers in all (including a few bud / corrona types). I had an Alaskan ESB, Black Beute Porter, and a Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale. These were the only two brewery offerings that we cannot get back in Kentucky.
The staff was standard -- they knew their beers but didn't really entice you with their enthusiasm or interest.
No foods were offered, but a cup of chex-mix was always available. Although the bar would have fallen a bit short of good reviews anywhere else, the is about as good as it gets on the strip.

As mentioned earlier, this is more of a beer kiosk than a bar. It sits in a crowded walkway in the mezzanine level as you enter the NY NY casino.
About 40 stools surround this square shaped "beer counter". The tap selection is, by Vegas strip standards, pretty good. If you're a tourist and want something a little nicer than the usual offerings then this isn't a bad place to check out.
Service was about average for a place of this relatively small size. The people were friendly and did their job well enough.
Selection was as mentioned, better than you'll find just about anywhere on the Vegas strip. That's not saying it was fantastic, just that you will find a number of brews here you won't see at the other tourist hotels. All in all, it's always nice to have another choice for a brew on tap while in that area.
No food available.

The wife and I actually walked by this place before looking back over my shoulder to see the Pour 24 sign. It is in a horrible location next to the escalator across from the Houdini Magic Shop and the casino entrance. Picture a crowded shopping mall around the holiday season with loads of people and screaming kids. Then hear the Houdini shop magician yelling to the crowd in front of the store selling some magic items. This is basically a bar kiosk in the middle of a mall. No walls, no TVs, no food.
The beer selection for Vegas is good, but the list is not overly remarkable. Some Rogues, Alaskan ESB and Amber, three New Belgium beers, Big Sky IPA and Moose Drool, Firestone Pale and Double Barrel, Sin City Amber, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Blue Moon. Sierra Anniversary along with some Breckinridge Vanilla Porter and Oatmeal Stout rounded it out. There are also a good number of bottles including the basic macros. The beers we had were fresh.
Prices are a bit steep as pint range from $6 - $ 6.50, and four 6 oz samples will cost you $14. There were also increased prices for five and six samples reaching up to $19. A bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter was listed at $9.50.
The bar top has a cold blueish color and macro bottles are stored in ice filled containers on the bar, while the micro bottles are stored in the refridgerators. The tap lineup is hard to read since the taps are sideways from the bar front, and blocked on the other side. But they do have a nice printed menu. There is a row of stools overlooking the first floor casino if you want to people watch.
I do not see this place lasting long before changing its lineup. Out of the 20 or so people who stepped up to order drinks, only the wife and I along with one other customer ordered from the micros. Most were Corona or Bud bottles or sodas. It is nice to see a bar with a better beer selection in Vegas, but the atmosphere and prices makes you want to leave quickly. If you are stuck on the strip this may do, but I still suggest getting off the strip to Big Dog's or Chicago for beers and Rosemary's for great food and beer pairings.

Overall, a nice addition to the Las Vegas beer scene. I can see this place being frequented by many BAs in the coming years. Beer selection is very good for Las Vegas standards. Just like the website boasts, 24 beers on tap, 24 beers in the bottles. Though nothing jumped out at me in the bottle list, a couple drafts looked good. I started with a Breckinridge Vanilla Porter. Though not my favorite style, very nice way to start the evening. Moving on, I had a Rogue Shakespeare Stout on tap, as well as a Big Sky IPA from Montana, all solid offerings. Full beer menu is located on the website. Though I did miss the lack of food options, the free peanuts made up for it (though they are a spicey bunch of mixed nuts!). Atmosphere is the only thing lacking at this place. It felt as though they've had some extra space in the NY, NY for awhile that they never put to use, and decided to put a beer bar right next to the escalator. There is no intimacy to this pub. The ambiance seems to get drowned out by all the foot traffic and neighboring loud music of Coyote Ugly. I shouldn't be negative, because I had a super positive experience, most of it coming from the helpful bar staff. Pints range from $6 to $6.50, and half pint tastings of four total beers are offered at $14 dollars a pop. Very reasonable for the Strip. All ye Las Vegas visitors, come on by to Pour 24, when you're in town. I'll think you'll enjoy a pint, or two, or three.
