Here on visit, bored with the usual gambling, stopped by to give it a go. Got there at 1:18pm.
Now at 3pm the glass cooler near the door behind the bar is happy hour 2 for 1 special, which is a good deal, if you like what's in there. I did not, but then again we were looking for Belgium. They have a huge list and 2 walk in coolers, sadly they either don't actually have what's on the list or its reserved for the owner which is total bs IMHO, can't he stock his own Freaking house????

Also beware of beer price sticker shock. Now I know prices are high in vegas casinos, if your not actually gambling etc. the common type beers are not to bad ie bluemoon $4.00, Celebrator dopplebock $7.00
but Orval was $10.00 ouchies, I can buy them at Total wine for $3.95 so for a hole in the wall place that nuts during the daytime prices. They are nice folks inside though, very friendly and very knowledge lady bartender knew more about beer than i ever will, but I been to Belgium and she has not. hehe

Tap selection was ok, they had Chimay white, and a few rogue and others, still quite pricey. Though the broke a few glasses here they do attempt to give you a glass that is close to what the brewer wants to you to drink the beer out of.

One would think at these prices they would actually stock some rarer stuff and maybe they do, but you have to live here to see them, that is if the owner don't hoard them, in his defense I am only going by the what the bartender said, he/she could be a great person that would share I will never know.

they have expanded and have life music, though I hear the place gets packed because of UNLV, mostly a college place, but they were nice to us over 50 folks.

If they do have a bomber you like you better have tons of cash, or not be as big a drinker as I am.

oh service was slow, because the poor girl had to wait tables/bar and cook. Don't sit at bar in front of oven, if its a warm day, it gets hot as hell.

So I came to town for business and did another beer trade with a great BA. Asked for recommendations for a place to go to for a good selection and she said to go here. I called to ask questions and got the owner, Andy. Great guy. Told me to see JD when I got there. JD immediately took us into the beer cooler and I picked out a 2004 Stone IRS. Very cool but a bit spendy at $65. He also took us up to the whiskey attic. I am not a whiskey fan but it was pretty amazing. Overall great place for a beer selection and amazing staff!! I would definitely go again.

After a bit of a summertime hike, my two friends and I made it. One friend asked if I was sure about this place since from the outside it looked like a bit of a dive with but a couple cars in the front at about 9 PM. Went in to find a couple booths, tables, and a few bar stools at the bar. Sign told us to order food at the bar. Tim Burton's Batman is playing on a big screen TV. We grab a booth but I then get up to check out the visible cooler that is near a stage. A guy from the bar asks me if it is our first time there and would like to see the cooler. My friends join me and we go into a cooler that I wish I had had more time and money to enjoy. Brews are arranged by country and the use is then divided by state. I see so many that I have never seen or heard of. My eye see Innis & Gunn's Independence Day 2012 and I know what I want. Friends grad different bottles as well. There is also 8 taps of different drafts, some that they claim are also rarities from around the US.
They then offer us a tour of the whisky cellar upstairs. My love of bourbon almost makes me order a shot from this giant collection but I decide to stick with the beers.
Not much of a menu for food. Pub fare with burgers, pizzas, some sandwiches (I got OMG BLT - highly recommend that on).
Don't know what the liquor laws are down here but it was really neat that you could also buy any bottles from the cooler to go. Friend go a rare German chocolate cake beer, loved it, and got another bottle for his wife. Price bomber at $22 but the guy who helped us told us that it was part of a limited 60 case production. My Innis was $11 but it's on my Wants so why not.
The only bad thing is not about the place but about their website. Menu tab shows no menus for food, beer, or whiskies. Calendar shows no past of future event. I think the only reason to go to the site is to sign up for their newsletter. Their Facebook page is better for info about what is happening at the Frog.

This place is a bit on the smallish side. It has a little stage area for impromptu performances, but not exactly much for seating other than a couple tables and a belly up to the bar. It gets excessively loud during the performances as well. You wind up yelling at someone next to at the bar.

The selection on tap is along the lines of Delirium and Lagunitas. Nice for a bar, not great for a true tap room. The real selection is in the chiller room, but you pay way over liquor store prices. Don't expect any real deals. But you can find nice stuff if you look. If it's busy, you won't be able to. If slow, you might.

This place is right across the street from UNLV and draws the typical college crowds, young college age students, professors, and some out of towners.

This place is best for the liquor room upstairs where they cater to people wanting to sample high end Bourbons and whiskies. Once again, bring your check book. Not even remotely cheap. But cheaper than an imported bottle.

Great for a visit, but not a great go to hangout.

So I was under the impression this was a store. Im an idiot.

Atm- Located across the street from UNLV is a open strip mall with one sign on the building and the windows blacked out and a tiny ass door. What was I doing? Inside dark as shit for 3pm on a Sunday. One guy inside plus the cooks/bartenders.

Quality- Good Beers on tap, from EvilTwin, Ballast Point and a couple others. No BMC that was nice to see. In the cooler was an impressive array of bottles for a bar including Cantillon Classic, lots of Mikkeller and imports. Uinta Oak Jacked Pumpkin, Stone rarities, lots of Euros as well.

Service- Super nice bartender let me poke around the cooler when I realized I was an idiot and would have to come back, next trip to Vegas to try a beer.

Selection, Cantillion, Mikkeller, Stone, The Bruery, Weinhestephaner. Lots more to choose from as well.

Food- N/A

Value- When a small bottle of Cantillon is $36, Ill stick with the tap list.

Located near what they call a university campus (maybe for a commuter college, otherwise, ugliest, least campus like campus ever), the Freakin Frog is in a strip mall essentially, and not the most noticeable from the street. But inside, its a two tiered level place and the setup is spacious and interesting, so I'll give it above average marks regardless of the shitty situation outside, or the fact that they don't even open for lunchtime.

There was only like 6 beers on tap, for whatever reason, I expected a lot more there. On top of that, I found the long beer list to be filled with a lot of "meh" type of stuff, at "crap" type of prices. I came in with the expectation of an awesome bottle list at expensive prices. Well, 1/2 ain't bad. Claims at the number of beers they carry seem embelished. Hate places that advertise they carry beer x, or x amount of beers, and then turn out to be posing. Or you know "out of it right now, shoulda been here yesterday," type of cover.

At yet, despite all of this, it is a slightly above average place overall, and still probably the second best bar for beer in Las Vegas.
