Inside one of the more divey casinos on the strip, you walk way back through all the riff raff of the casino (more thuggery in there than your average strip casino) to find something akin to an airport brewery stuck on the side of one of the aisles. It was relatively clean at least, but there was nothing in terms of breweriana, the employees had to wear these uniforms that looked straight out of a carnival. But at least they tried to be friendly, if lacking in the being informative department.
The beers, the usual selections, there was only 4-5 beers on tap, nothing but BMC available bottle wise. Frankly, BMC is superior to every beer I had here. At one point, it just became an experience in seeing how shitty the beers could be. This IPA is almost as bad as Kennebunkport. I really think this one pushed Nevada into the top realm of shittiest IPA producing state. What's the deal with a fireplace in this hot ass city? Could never imagine that to be anything beyond poor decor. Pint glasses? You're f'n crazy. Straight up plastic cup here. Reminds me of that shitty Toby Keith song. The "light lager" might be their best beer because it didn't taste like anything, which is an improvement for this stuff relatively speaking. Same yeast strain for every beer, probably an extract kit or something. I didn't see any brewing equipment, but all I care about is the finished product anyways, and this was not good under any circumstances.
I could really care about anything else, but the beer and the beer selection is shit here.

I tried this place the last time I was in Vegas, I guess that's why i remember it being good, I was beer handicapped the first time I tried it.
First off, it is nice to know your not to far from a micro when walking around. Their logo is probobaly the coolest I have ever seen, they also do 2 pitchers for $15.00, which is a good deal. That's where the compliments end. I tried all of their beers, and it is hard to discern one from the other. I decided to get a pitcher of their IPA without trying it, big mistake. It smelled literally like dirty dishwater, and had almost zero hoppiness to it. I do not recommend this place to anyone, especially since there are a few more breweries in town that put out much better beer. Oh yeah, and if you want merchandise with that bad ass logo on it, expect to pay around 30.00 for a t-shirt.

Atmosphere - This is a small bar among the shops in the Flamingo. Its basically a u shaped bar that seats probably twenty with tvs above the bar. Some shelves of to the side with shirts and glasses to buy. For Vegas would you really expect anything other than tvs and neon lights.
Quality/Selection - They have five of their beers on tap a Light Lager, Amber, Stout, Hefe, and the seasonal which was an IPA. So to me they had at one style for everyone. I got the IPA and it was pretty decent and the wife got their Weisse which was good.
Service - During my visit I can't say that my service was bad or the guy was a dick. I asked for my beers and he delivered them so I was pleased. The beer is served in plastic cups but thats because you can drink anywhere in Vegas so I doubt they'd get their glasses back if they used glass.
Overall this isn't a place to seek out but if your in the Flamingo its worth finding it to grab a beer from.

Now we're in the pits.
This place was in the walkway to the casino. Most of the big resort-type places had walkways like this, long richly lit halls of really expensive stores that sell nothing but worthless crap. It's like your average mall only much, much worse.
So a brewpub extension in the middle of this place seemed like a relief. Th-that was my thought process, almost exactly: "whew, beer!" Didn't even eyeball the place. Just went right in.
While I was hoping for a tropical island, this turned out to be nothing but a tributary in the sea of shit.
The decor was like a kid's bedroom. Bright, solid colors, I mean. There were TVs showing sports.
The beers were all named after their styles, and while there was a wide variety they ranged from mediocre to shit. The bartender was a prick, too; when I told him I didn't like their foul IPA he intoned that it was probably because my pallet just wasn't advanced enough. Uh huh.
A charmless hole pushing awful, expensive beer. Avoid.

Not a great experience. 4 beers were available from Sin City Brewing Co and were ok. The place is really just a few tables around a bar in a corridor!
The guy serving wasn't very friendly and stated in no uncertain terms that coins less than quarters were not acceptable! Is this allowed?
Plastic glasses were used which do nothing to enhance or even sustain the quality of the beer.
I guess they get plenty of passing trade from people walking past, most I saw just wanted a Bud or Millar though.
Would probably give this one a miss next time unless things improve.

A tiny little pub that is situated slightly off the casino floor at the Flamingo... While the interior is small and the decor average, there is a very nice outdoor patio and seating area which greatly adds to the overall experience. A small gift shop is situated inside.
The beers are a nice upgrade of the the standard strip taps, but aren't spectacular by any means. The two most impressive were the Amber, which is actually a Marzen, and the Stout. The service was good, but points are subtracted for serving brews in plastic cups, but this is Vegas, so it's taken in stride. In addition to their own creations, bottle of various BMC products were offered along with assorted frozen fruit drinks.
I didn't sample the food, and actually am not even sure if there were food menus.
At $6 a pint for their own stuff, it really is a good value by Vegas standards. Fairly low key overall and a welcome distraction for the standard hustle and bustle of the strip.
