    Nice. There's a lot of decent food down that way, but good beer was usually limited to the 2-3 items at Sin City.

    Public house is pretty stellar but at $10 a pint very costly

    Short of getting lucky decent comped beers at the nicer casinos (Warsteiner, Alaskan, Pyramid, occasionally Sam Adams) it seems like pretty much every spot on the strip has an asterisk reading "except it's not cheap."
    It kinda sucks, but when people are throwing around $100 bills like they're $1's, the casinos know what they can charge and what they can't. Funny enough, the people drinking conversion beers are often the ones getting burned the worst. At a lot of places I'll see beer like Shiner Bock and Honey Brown cost as much if not more than Stone IPA and the like.

    Hit this place tonight. Cool vibe, modeled after the Lower East Side in Manhattan. Pretty good beer list, excellent prices, i had a 23 ounce Ballast Point Big Eye IPA for $10 and a Deschutes Black Butte in a bottle for only $5. Burgers were excellent also. Loved the music, mostly old school 70s and 80s.I definitely recommend this place.

    While I am at it, let's throw a sandwich recommendation out too, earl of sandwich in Planet Hollywood was awesome, great hot sandwiches at reasonable prices, $7 or so for a sandwich.
