Unfortunately you'll pretty much need a car to get to this brewery as it's quite a way from anything touristy, but if you can make it, I'd suggest a trip out here. The décor is nothing special, but it has a very welcoming, unpretentious feel with not too many features to remind you you're in gambling central. The bartender was super chill and suggested beers we might want to sample from the 10 or so they had on tap. The beers were really nice overall, especially the big beers they were pouring. Hoppy beers were a little oniony, but I was the only one who seemed to notice. Overall a really great place to escape from the madness and heat of Vegas for a few delicious brews.

Visited 6/20/2013 after day of golfing at Paiute, where the selection of beer really sucked, I was in need of some craft beer goodness.

Located in Northwest Las Vegas across from a hospital, Tenaya Creek features about 10 house beers along with a few guest taps from Lagunitas, New Belgium. Several house beers were available in bottles to go, but after trying one I decided to pass. Also serves hard liquor, not a bite of food. All the seats at the bar had the typical video poker terminals glaring you in the face. The help was nice enough, but the beer, to be honest, wasn't that good. With the new Aces and Ales location opening down the street, this place is in deep trouble. The IPA was under-hopped, thin bodied and one note in the finish. Pass.

Tenaya Creek is a great little watering hole that usually features 5 Tenaya Creek drafts (I love their Monsoon IPA, and Impy Stout. Both are seasonal), as well as 4 or 5 guest taps. The up side is the bar has a pool table, dart board, 2 big screens by the bar, etc. Down side is they don't serve food and there is smokin g inside. I am a non-smoker, so if it's nice outside, there is seating which I take advantage of.

Overall great little spot the has some good drafts, and some surprising guests taps at times (i.e. - Pallete Wrecker, Lagunitas Suck).

Figured while I was in this neck of the woods, I should try out this brewery, never been impressed particularly with their beer, but hey, I'm on this side of town.

I like that the place has the desert motif going, lots of brick, sandstone, and the granite countertops inside the place are pretty kick ass. And its nice to have a place in Vegas with adequate windows. The patronage is nothing special, and even the brewery employees seem to be a little different, never seen a brewer smoking cigs in the brewery and drinking a beer before. Service was good, although it better be on a Thursday afternoon w/ almost no one inside.

Quality of the beers are completely average. Same with the selection. Actually, the selection was less than average. Nothing barrel, sour, imperial, stout etc. . . just the usuals, I think the most exotic thing was a rye ipa, that was completely average. But i can say the beers aren't 'bad' of featuring any off flavors, they just suffer from that, same yeast strain, sameness of all their beers function, none of which are particularly adventurous. A decent place, cool looking, but I just wish there was more substance from within.

Not worth a special trip out of the way to this place, but it is worth a trip if you're in the area.
