This is hands down the best brewery I've ever been to. The bartender was down right rude and was agitating the entire time. The beer itself was dreadful with only the stout being acceptable. I would never recommend visiting this location

Pretty much a walk up kiosk in the Miracle Mile Shops. Only four beers to choose from. I've had all of them from multiple trips to vegas, pretty decent. Beers tend to be on the sweet side, and aren't very dynamic, but are true to style and respectable. Definitely beats walking around with watered down swill.

This is a tiny little shop that looks like they took over a juice bar inside a mall, with maybe 5 taps, so obviously the selection is very limited. Not a big deal, beer is passable, but, even as its own name suggests, this is Sin City. If you find yourself stopping in this bar more than once, you're probably a local, because there are far greater, less bloaty ways to get your rocks off in this city, and this is the last place you want to be a swelled up with just-okay beer.

The location I visited is on the strip at Harmon Corner, across from the Cosmopolitan. It has about 8 bar stools and a couple of tables. The bartender Elyse was great. She was very friendly and quick to refill your pint. I tried the weisse beer. It was a quality offering. They contract brew through another local LV brewer. No food here. If you are looking for a good beer while walking the strip, this is a good place to stop.

I wasn't really thinking about craft beer wandering around the casino but I spotted this place and gave it a try. With all the other activities Vegas has to offer this certainly isn't a place you'd want to spend a bunch of time but it's fine for a nice respite to go from the usual casino swill. The beer was good but not great and I liked the stout best.

Had to find this place after finding it in a search on my way to Vegas. I like to try beers that are local as I travel. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. Prices are reasonable...and the service was great. I enjoyed a ipa. Doesn't make my top 10 list. But it was definitely worth stopping in to sample Vegas beer.

Stopped here a couple different times. The best beer prices to be found in and around a casino. They had a Light, IPA, Amber, Wheat, and a Stout on tap. I also agree with other reviewers that the stout was the best. 8-9 barstools with 2 tables just around the corner. TV with ESPN on. Bartender very friendly and into sports to having a couple and talking with her was nice.

Just when I thought I had escaped the shittiness of the Flamingo Sin City, I'm trolling around the area inside the 'mall' trying to find something to do other than watch the ladies shoe shop, when I find another Sin City joint. Why is this place so popular I thought? Well, hey, any bar/brewery has to be better than the usual cookie cutter shopping outlet type of thing going on right? Well, yeah, but not by much.

Super small, I dunno, bar/kiosk. No tables. No food. No real selection of beers beyond the drab and boring. Pale, Wheat, Amber, Blond, Light and maybe "seasonal" if you're lucky. I'm sorry, that is a poor selection. Branch out, have something a little different.

Bartenders are friendly, generally caked on makeup and the typical Vegas attractive girl look, which come to think of it, was actually the coolest thing about the place. Cooler than the one on/in Flamingo, but the beers are just as shitty. But this is more of a respite location in my book, and it does have slightly more value because of that.

Almost didn't try Sin City due to negative impressions I got from B/A. Glad I took the chance. After a few days in Vegas we stopped by here, and it was refreshing to escape the normal CABM offered at other spots on the strip. Sin City does not brew monster craft beers, but does make well-made style-conforming brews.

Their 'seasonal' beer was a good East Coast style IPA. It had a balance of hops n malts and was very refreshing. Seasonal is in quotes because the bartender said its been on tap for the six months she's been working at Sin City. Let's hope it becomes a standard beer since it is the only thing in the lineup with hops.

Also tried their oatmeal stout and Weiss beer. Both were well made and conformed to style.

Loved the to-go window in the bar where you can walk up, bet a beer and keep cruising the mall.

Sin City is one of those places that you could easily dismiss. It's in a mall attached to a Casino! Beer's served in plastic cups, and it looks more like a souvineer stand than a bar. Somehow, it rises above that.

There are just five taps, but I thought the stout and IPA were very good. (even in a plastic cup) Some liquor is available as well.

The service was beyond good, I'd say it was outstanding. Joe went above and beyond his bartenders duty.

It's a good spot to peoplewatch and escape from the constant noise of the slot machines. Sin City is a little Oasis in the Nevada dessert.

Atmosphere - What you see in the BA picture is what you get. The bar is in a tiny hole in the wall of shops. The bar is L shaped and sits around ten. At the end of the bar is all of their merchandise of shirts glasses and other things.

Quality/Selection - They have five of their beers on tap a Light Lager, Amber, Stout, Hefe, and the seasonal which was an IPA. So to me they had at one style for everyone. I got the Stout and it was good and the wife got their Amber which was good.

Service - During my visit they had a good looking girl working as the server didn't know much about beer but wasn't hurting my eyes.

Overall if your stuck wandering the shops at Planet Hollywood consider this a small glimmer of hope from the pain of the shops.

Was in the area, so I figured I would stop in for a pint, which turned out to be four-plus. I would suggest a flight, rather than sampling via pints, as it makes more sense for risk management purposes, especially if you're alone in Las Vegas.

Agree with the earlier reviews. The beers, including the seasonal I.P.A., all came in as advertised, and were solid (but not spectacular). Thought the stout was best, followed by the amber, seasonal IPA, then the wheat. Service was friendly and helpful. Prices add up quickly: I paid $51, before tip, for four pints, a T-shirt, and a pint glass. Didn't get an itemized receipt, but the T-shirt was $20. The bartender, who was great, would provide samples, and even gave me 1/2 pint gratis, but it still adds up.

I upgraded the atmosphere from "average" to "good" based on the fake rainstorm that happens in the Miracle Mile shopping area on occasion. Kind of reminded me of the Tonga Room in San Franciso, and I'm a sucker for that kind of kitsch. Good times.

This place just pops up out of the blue in the middle of a mall. It has a small bar with about 10 seats. Stopped by on a Monday afternoon and saw 2 customers keeping the bartender company. Service was good. Got a flight of all the beers before going with the Pils. Beers are middle of the road. The Stout and Pils were the best of the bunch with the Amber coming in close behind. Selection is slim. 4 house beers and a seasonal. That's it. There is a decent selection of shirts and glassware for purcchase. Don't think I would seek this place out but was happy to run upon it. Good place to get a pint to help out walking around the mile of shops.

Was very suprised to these this place after it turned into planet hollywood. This place was not there when it was the aladdin but I would stil stop and take a stroll threw the shoppes and get a yard full of slushy alcohol at fat tuesday's. Last years stumbled upon it while visting for my budy's birthaday and had to try some of this vegas brew. The beer was average with nothing out of the norm and they brewed simple styles like a hef, amber, pale ale, and a lager. They had a very small selection no food to offer but a cool little place in the cut of the shoppes in the newly remodled plamet hollywood. Would not go out of my way to stop here but can have a slight appeal if your in the vicinity.

Pricey, but so is Vegas in general. This was a great place to visit for a bit. Don't know how my wife found it but she dragged me back and I enjoyed a few comped beers while pissing money away in the poker machines $1 at a time.

Nice O-fest, Nice Weiss, did not try the others. Friendly bartender and he even helped me pick out a shirt when I couldn't decide on size.

Check it out if you are nearby. The only way we found to get there was through the flamingo exhibit, but there must be another way.

Strolling through a mall in Vegas, so sure that I'll be drinking $1 margaritas the rest of the day, only to happen across this hole in the wall pub... what a surprise! Four beers on tap, two cute bartenders, one heckofa lot of scenery. We had the Irish Stout, Octoberfest, and Wheat, all solid. The stout was pretty creamy, the wheat satisfied my weizen lovin friend, and the fest was plenty good. No food, but prices were pretty decent for Vegas. I'd say this isn't exactly a place to search out, but if you are strolling anywhere close, go grab a beer, makes the touring all the better.

While strolling through the Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood, we came across this oasis in the desert that is the mall. Small little hole in the wall pub. Few seats at the bar, a couple of table, and a to-go window. As you sit there, you can almost forget you are in a mall. Interesting selection of people: we had a local construction crew mingling with a bachelorette party next to us. Entertainment to say the least. Bartender was quick and attentive, but not overly friendly. They only have four beers on tap: Octoberfest, Light Lager, Irish Stout, and Wheat Beer. My stout was actually very good, almost looked like it was on nitro. And the Wheat was pretty fruity and refreshing. No food, but there's a small gift shop section. Pints come in plastic cups and are $5 a beer. Take one away, or sit and enjoy. Either way, definitely try this beer while in LV.

There should definately be more craft beer stands in malls. While the girls went shopping at the Miracle Mile Shops, they were surprised that I was so receptive to the idea. Of course I knew about the Sin City taproom and they did not.

Ok, I ditched the chicks and bellied up to the bar that was little more than your standard lotto kiosk. Calling this space a 'hole-in-the-wall' would be generous-- It's more of a pit-stop. Nevertheless, there is something about the cozy intimacy of the small space where the few patrons and the beertender can interact and talk all things beer.

About those beers, I had three of the four, leaving the light for another day. Sin City's focus is mostly German ales in nature with the Hefeweizen and Amber however they do offer an Irish-type stout as well. Their beers are clean, crisp, and refreshing to appeal to the mass beer drinker but a bit under-malted and one dimentional for my taste. No real flaws, but light on character. The prices were about
$4 per pint and were served in plastic 'to-go' cups (I really like the alcohol to-go tolerances in Las Vegas). As usual, the beers are very cold and takes a minute to warm where the aromas and flavors are fully appreciated.

The bar seats maybe 10. I had to stand with a beer for a minute as some other patrons tapped out and went on their way, I was able to snag their seats. No tables are availabe, but standing room is permitted. The bar area is very clean and inviting with a mirror clad, red highlights, and well-lit decor. There is a corner on the left with some merchandise for sale, while the right side has a walk-up window for a true pit-stop effect. The BA picture says it all.

Sin City does not offer any food, but does have a chalk board that lists the beers available and a short excerpt about each.

The beertender was very attractive in appearance and personality. She made everyone feel like a friend. There are no tv's but the beertender tuned the radio to whatever the patrons requested.

There's not much to the bar so don't expect much. But anytime I have the option of getting a craft beer instead of being dragged to Bannana Republic is a much welcomed option.

This place is a little bar located inside the shopping section at PH (used to be the Aladdin). It is a small bar (but fairly cool looking) with less than 10 stools and maybe only 2 people working it. I don't recall their being any food available. On tap were a lite, wheat, oktoberfest, and stout. I ordered the oktoberfest and my brother had the stout which I stole a sip of. Both were pretty average in my opinion. Not worth seeking out for the beer alone but if you are walking around shopping in the PH it's nice to grab a beer to carry around with you.

Located in the Miracle Mile shopping center, this place is a very small bar. Maybe 8 seats or so, with some merchandise in one corner, and the taps in another. There was also a tv to watch.

4 beers on tap, a light, and amber, a wheat and a stout. I did not have the light. The wheat and amber were good, the stout was fair. All served in plastic to go cups.

Our server Miranda was very friendly, and fun. We never waited for a beer, and felt welcomed. We intended to stay for a beer, but then ended up hanging our and meeting lots of people. Miranda had a good selection of music to play for us, and we probably ended up being there for about 3 or 4 hours.

Overall, a fun place to stop and have a beer. Friendly atmosphere, and fun.

I stopped by here last week on work. First off, as the other say, its probably not much more than a kiosk. It has a bar with about 8 chairs and a couple of tables. Very clean.

The locals hung out here for a few drinks after work. To me that says something when they can get the heck away from the strip, that they hang around to relax and chat over a cold one.

THe service was fantastic. The guy behind the bar (Thanks Joe) was friendly as heck about everything. Letting me try all the beers, and was never behind on delivering me a new one.

I tried all the beers - the stout, the hefe, the light, and the amber. They were all good, although the hefe was really hitting the spot for me on 105 degree days in LV.

Selection was limited however to just those beers.

No food at this locale - didn't try.

I got lost in this mall, and by doing so I found Sin City! It's a small little bar type deal, with only a few tables away from the bar. 4 taps I believe, and, obviously, they're not brewed here. While it seemed a bit small and crowded, I must say this place stays spotless. Everything is clean, neat, and organized. The bartender knew her stuff, and was very attentive.

As I said, there were only 4 beers on tap, and I only tried the stout, which was very tasty. Not sure about the food situation, I didn't even look. Prices were fairly cheap as far as the location is concerned. All in all I'd say this place is definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

The Desert Passage is now called "Miracle Mile Shops". It's a nice enough mall, as these things go, and not unlike the Forum Shops at Caesar's or the Canal Shops at The Venetian.

Sin City is just a walk-up place with a few barstools, a plasma TV and a shop selling T-Shirts and other logo merchandise.

I drank the stout on more than one occasion and thought it was very satisfying. It's nice to be able to get a good beer and walk around with it.

You can get a slice of pizza at a nearby shop and bring it back over to Sin City to enjoy with a beer. The people at Sin City were VERY nice.

They don't brew at the mall location, but Sin City does contract brew for several locations around town.

Good place. Definitely worth a stop if you are nearby or if you are walking down the strip past the Planet Hollywood. Ingress/Egress from the mall isn't great, but you'll do your share of walking in Vegas, and you'll have a nice beer in your hand on the way out.

Visited on 12/31/07. Just a little kiosk in the Miracle Mile mall (formerly known as Desert Passage) at the Planet Hollywood Casino complex. They have a nice selection of logo gear, a cool lacquered red metal bar with about ten stools and a plasma TV tuned to the inevitable football game. Four of their beers are on tap here and the bartender let me taste them all without charge. I ordered a pint of the wheat beer which, while perhaps a little too cold, was still great. After I bought a logo shirt, he threw the beer in for free. I now love this little place and will make it a point to visit every time I'm in Vegas from now on.

Not much in the way of atmosphere, it is basically an 8 stool bar wide open to the 'mall' area. There are shirts and glassware for sell on the walls and behind the bar. Check out their website, you can see the entire space there.

I had a stout and Octoberfest, both were very good. The bartender was very friendly and attentive, she was also very knowledgable.

I am not sure I would make a special trip to get here, but if you are in the Miracle Mile Shops grab a beer or two and maybe a shirt. It is a nice break from the macro heavy casino offerings.
