Lots of talk about this place, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
Lots of beer signs and posters outside and in the entrance. Cool so far. Pool tables and TV's in a small room to the left upon entering. The main room has a large wooden bar in the center (with poker machines built in), a few scattered tables, some pool tables, and a chalkboard with taps. Beer posters are on the walls and I can clearly see a fair number of decent bottles there for the display.
I grabbed a table...and waited...and waited...and waited. I finally flagged a waitress and asked for the beer menu. She seemed nice at first and found one hiding somewhere in the back. She pointed out the draft list as well. It was mentioned that some of the bottled items weren't available due to a pending event in the coming week. Fair enough - no big deal.
The bottled list was pretty nice. Lots of items from Stone, DFH, the Bruery, as well as some Belgian and German imports. The tap list wasn't bad, too. Nothing amazing, but pretty good.
After making our decisions, I waited for another 10 minutes and again had to flag her down from talking to some other patrons. I'm all for keeping things friendly but c'mon. We weren't alone - other people were having to track her down as well...both at the bar and at tables.
After ordering I was informed that the items we wanted weren't available...and apparently haven't been for quite some time. In fact, almost nothing on the menu was available and 3 of the 10 or so drafts were also gone. They didn't have anything less than 6% ABV anywhere...and after copping attitude with us after placing 4 orders for items that they apparently might *never* have had, we just got 3 'Lil Sumpin Sumpin's and got out of there. It's probably worth mentioning that there were a whole host of dirty dishes at various tables and bar seats that were there when we arrived and still weren't cleared 1/2 hour later when we left. Service was a joke and the menu made the Falling Rock's seem up to the minute accurate. I didn't stick around long enough to eat, and the only signs I had of the food were dirty plates scattered around. Luckily my friend from the area was able to drive us elsewhere. The only real upside is that the prices on the menu appeared to be good/low in general. Of course that doesn't matter much when nothing on the menu is available and you can't find anyone to order from.
Not going back here and I don't recommend it...local or not.

visited here for dinner and drinks before a flight out of Vegas.

The atmosphere is a little rougher than I imagined for a "beer bar", seems like more of a locals bar that happens to have a great tap list of beers. But then I did remember we're in Vegas. Smoky, video poker machines in the bar, tons of TV's showing sports. There is a side area with some tables, some high tops around the bar, and a side room with pool tables.

Taplist was very heavy on Stone beers, with other West Coast craft beers filling in the gaps. Some one-offs or speciality releases mixed in. Lots of IPA's. You order by tap #, and the menu clearly states name, style, ABV, ounces of pour, and prices. There was a video monitor with the same info too. Also some high priced vintage large bottles available.

Waitress was attentive and friendly, service was good. Food was better than expected, pretty tasty, and came out quick. Beers were a little pricey.
