I had read on the Beerfly site about this establishment and was anxious to try the Freakin Frog. After a day on the busy convention floor, I grabbed three of my buddies and we drove about two miles from the Las Vegas Hilton and easily found the Freakin Frog in a plain strip mall.
When we entered, we were struck by the decor-or lack of. It was especially startling after the excess of all the Vegas casinos. To our delight, we saw that Delirium Tremens was on tap and we ordered four glasses. The brew was served in proper glassware which was nice, and the bartender was pretty friendly and undeniably knowledgeable. My friend ordered a round of Chimay that was similarly served.
We considered ordering some burgers since we were really tired from work, but the thought of dining in this dump really put our appetite off. I don't think that there is any good reason except they want to keep all the profits (beer prices were $2 per glass higher than similar beer bars including the Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay) that the place is so shabby.
We decided to leave and dine elsewhere, and although it was nice to enjoy a great beer, we all agreed that this place would was not suitable for a return visit. I am shocked that others have rated this pigsty as high as it has been in members reviews.

Had seen a poor review but wanted to see for myself. A really great place! Wish they would turn some lights on. Staff was great, tap selections superb and outstanding cellar selection. if I lived in Vegas, this would be my main drop. On my next visit, will be my first stop, and will be spreading the word about a great establishment.

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.
