I finally made it to CBC, it has been on my to do list the last 6 times I was in Vegas, but I never made it. I am glad I finally did, and I will be back for sure.
I had a few Black Star Stout, which were smooth, and went down quick. I also tried my first Braggot - their honey - it was quite strong, and not a style I will seek out in the near future.
They also list Ghost Pepper Chili wings on their menu for the extreme foodies out there. I would not even think about trying one of those.
The beers were all free, since I was sitting at the playing quarter Keno and video poker. The service was great, and the crowd was friendly. I was ready for the relaxed atmosphere they offer. This is a great place to take a break and slow down in Vegas.

I visited the Chicago Brewing Company location at the Four Queens Hotel & Casino on Freemont Street in old Las Vegas. It was a fairly small place with limited tables and bar stools. I enjoyed the Hardway IPA while playing Video Poker at the Bar and watching a football game. There was obviously no cost to me while I was playing, and since I broke even on my Video Poker play my beer cost was free :-). There were 4 other micro brews on tap; Old Town Brown (a German-style brown ale), Ramblin Reck (an American amber ale), Weizenheimer (a Bavarian style hefeweizen), and All Nighter (a premium light ale). I only tried the Hardway IPA; in fact I had a few to ensure an "adequate sampling". The atmosphere was comfortable with friendly bar tenders, and good company to talk with while playing Video Poker and watching football. I didn't eat there so I can't comment on the quality of the food, although from what I saw it looked like regular "pub food" (ie, nothing special).

This used to be my neighborhood bar a few years back and it used to be great. It really has lost its appeal and doesnt do much to want me to come back. Nothing too special on beers (damn I miss that Maibock) and its the same old boring beers....nothing awful but nothing to crave either. Food is probably its strongest point as I do enjoy the Sliders and the pizzas. Also, the Happy Hour prices are extremely generous which is a huge plus. Its an okay place, but I wont go out of my way to go there even when its Happy Hour.

The place used to be great. I used to hang out there quite a bit. About 3 or 4 years ago they went to hell. Beers are still the same, decent enough. But the food quality and the service has gone way down hill. If you are looking for a place with average food were you can sit and hangout for while and you are not concerned about great service, it is a ok place. I would not go as far as to say don't go, but I will say don't go and expect a great meal, great beer, or great service. Over all pretty average place.

Stopped in during an afternoon of mostly underwhelming beer shopping as it was on the route from Whole Foods to Lees/Total Wine.
A fake "converted warehouse" look from the outside, but inside is not bad. Smoking permitted in the bars (ick!) but at 3 in the afternoon the crowd was, thankfully, sparse. A three sided downstairs bar (deep to accommodate the video poker machines), with some high tops around. Rather dark but not unpleasantly so, lots of TVs.
I had the full sampler of 9 beers, which was pretty mediocre throughout. The Hawaiian Honey braggot was the best of the lot, the IPA was just ok, and the rest lacked any kind of character.
The sliders I had were pretty good. The bartender was pleasant and attentive, especially for a day bartender.
I would not go back, and am glad I did not go out of my way to get here. Not a bad experience, just nothing special.

They have a good range of in house beers, ranging from Pales to Stouts. Most styles are represented fairly. The food is good, they have a range of pizzas: thin crust and deep dish, and a good selection of Aps. Irish Nachos are a stand out. Nachos using potato chips=delicious. Fair pricing on both food and drink. This place would benefit by carrying a selection of craft beer. Having that in conjunction with their in in-house beer would make this place a definite draw. Even with their lack of a good Craft selection, I still visit this place due to the great food and good in-house beer.
