Las Vegas. Sin City. I'm on vacation, and I'm losing money (there's a shocker). Having thrown cash away there before, I know that my chances of finding a good craft beer on The Strip are as likely as filling that inside straight on the river. But the beer gods were smiling upon me, directing me in my complete ignorance to the 2nd floor of the New York New York Hotel-Casino...

Walking briskly, I nearly passed by an open spaced bright blue and white bar. But I caught the colorful tap handles out of the corner of my eye. Whoa. Time out, Tony. Let's check this out.

My server, Alex, was quite busy, but passed me a shiny beer menu upon request. I blissfully noticed brews from Alaskan, Firestone, New Belgium, Stone - Ruination! Sold.

So why is this little oasis called Pour 24? Three reasons: 24 taps; 24 bottles; and open 24 hours. Every day. Viva Las Vegas...

Now bring your wallet, because The Strip ain't cheap. $7 for 14 ounces on all drafts. Most bottles are more reasonable at $5.50 a pop, with a few special exceptions. However, one way to enjoy the taps at Pour 24 is taking one of their beer flights. 4 6-oz samples for $14, 5 for $16.50, 6 for $19. And a nice little touch is that they offer several recommended beer flights...or you can just "build your own".

Let's make something clear; don't expect to savor your elixir in quiet solitude. This is an open area rectangular bar, right next to heavy pedestrian traffic in a huge casino. It's bright, noisy as hell, and populated by many customers who wouldn't know a good beer if it bit them in the liver. In fact, I was initially going to completely rip the atmosphere...then I noticed the 2 guys to my right drinking the good stuff. And a short time later, the 2 guys that sat down to my left ordered craft beer as well. After some introductions, this New Jersey lad had the pleasure of drinking and discussing good beer with gentlemen from North Carolina and Ohio. So don't despair...you'll find some fellow beer peeps if you look for them. And they'll be as happy to see you as you are of them.

Is this the best beer bar you'll ever go to? Hell no.

But if you're wandering The Strip in Las Vegas, thirsting for a yummy craft beer, get your drinkin' self over to Pour 24. An oasis doesn't have to serve only water, after all.

**Stony's Biscuit** - I freely admit that I'm grading this establishment on a curve. If you know anything about The Strip in Las Vegas, you'll know that it's nearly impossible to find craft beer there. Kudos to the New York New York management for making the attempt with Pour 24. Atmosphere notwithstanding, go there if you're in town. Maybe, just maybe, the craft beer movement will catch on in Sin City...

Located at the top of the escalator very near the Coyote Ugly bar in New York New York, Pour 24 is just a place to get a beer, look out over the casino and perhaps watch some sports on TV.

The beer selection is excellent. About two dozen craft beers were available (for $7 each). They do provide the opportunity for four, six-ounce samplers for $14.

It is extremely difficult to find delicious beer on the Las Vegas Strip. This spot - conveniently located on the same level as the pedestrian walkways to Excalibur and MGM Grand - is worth a stop. I enjoyed getting a Stone Ruination and then walking downstairs to grab a slice of Pizza. You can get beer in either a glass (to drink there) or a plastic cup (to go).

It can be quite noisy at times, but I met some really wonderful fellow travelers there.

Availability of beers with character makes NYNY relatively unique among the casinos on the strip.

Passed by several times and visited recently with company that was in town. First of all, as many others mentioned, the atmosphere is terrible to non-existant. Its really not a bar, more of a beer kiosk. Located in a high traffic area, and out in the open, makes it hard to distinguish where the "bar" actually is. That being said, one nice thing is the view over the casino floor, but thats only if you sit at the video poker machines and then the bartenders pay no attention to you because your back is to them.

I will rate it highly on the selection based on Vegas strip standards. I was impressed with that. Some SN, Rogue, Big Sky, Stone, Alaskan, Abita, Anchor, ect...very nice selection on tap as well with the bottles. Prices are high but that is to be expected on the strip. If I recall pints were $7.00, the did have various themed flights available as well as build-your-own.

My biggest complaint was ordering a SN Celebration and geting a SNPA. The tap was for Celebration, in their defense the menu just said "Sierra Nevada Seasonal." I guess by the tap I was expecting Celebration. And SNPA isnt seasonal anyways so if it wasnt Celebration I would expect ESB or Bigfoot considering the time of year. And one of my guests ordered a Bud Light and was given a Bud. Out of the 3 of us 2 of us got something we didnt order. Bartenders never once checked on us after ordering.

All in all I'd say this is a good place to stop if your on the strip and need a break from the average beer that available. There are some nice beers if you have a few bucks that you havent lost yet. My advice would be to get the beer and go outside. You can enjoy a good beer and take in a good view of the strip.

If it wasnt for the horrible atmosphere, it would rank higher. This is not a bar, just a walk up spot with a few seats to try one of the 24 beers they have on draft. Located in New York, New York Las Vegas, the hotel itself is very nice, however putting this place upstairs does it a disservice. The selection however is very good, with the only macro available was a Leinenkugels. I tried the custom flight, which was any four 6oz samples of your choice. I had the Firestone Double Barrel Ale, Stone Ruination, Anchor Seasonal (not sure which one, im assuming it was the Christmas) and Kona's Porter I believe. This was $14 which wasnt too bad. Server was pretty knowledgeable. My wife pointed out how so many people were ordering bottels of Bud Light and Miller Lite, which was very depressing.

All in all, they had great selection, just the layout and design was ill concieved.

I probably got my hopes up way too much before hitting up Pour 24. On the flight last Thursday to Vegas I was reading the on-flight magazine and under "Microbreweries" was Pour 24. I explained to Krista, my wife, how I would really like to try it out. She agreed as she's always up to try a few good brews. Well, we didn't make it there until Saturday afternoon and when we arrived we discovered it to not be a microbrewery at all. It was a beer bar. Great selection too. It even carried a Leinenkugel's Brewery selection on tap. That was the first Wisconsin brewed beer I'd seen in Las Vegas other than a Miller product. Let me just say, if you're traveling to Vegas and you're looking for a Microbrewery, this isn't it. If you're looking for a great selection of graft beers in one spot? You found the right place. It over looks the casino floor above New York New York from about 50 feet. It's a neat view but the atmosphere is far from comfortable. It's in a spot where traffic is heavy and the scene is wide open. No cozy little booth to enjoy the Alaskan Brewing Company ESB I took part in. Instead I took my extra special bitter and went for a walk. All in all, I'd go back.

I seriously nearly walked right past this place, but it's really quite easy to find right next to the Coyote Ugly in NY, NY. It's very new and clean, but the location isn't great because it's right out in the lobby and there's lots of people walking all over the place.
Decent selection on tap, nothing special in bottles. No macro's on any of the 24 taps which was good. I got a Rogue Brutal Bitter which tasted a bit watered down to me. They also had the Anchor and Sierra Nevada seasonals, Arrogant Bastard, Moose Drool and some others. Didn't blow me away but this is Vegas, and it's hard to find anything better than a Guiness most places.
Prices were ok, it was like 6-7 bucks for I think 9 ounces. Not great, but again, it's Vegas. Chatted a bit with the bartender who was a real nice guy. Said he had never really tried much beer before he started working there, but that he'd been drinking a few different brews every week. Told me that he figured out the macros are all the same, but that this was real beer. I told him to keep spreading the gospel...but sadly everybody else at the bar was ordering crap. Ah well.
No food, but they did offer free bar snacks so that's a plus.
If you're in NY, it's an easy place to get a decent pint, but not nearly as good as Burger Bar IMO.

Certainly not what I expect from a beer bar, but then again isn't this thea case with everything in this town? Even knowing what to look for, I nearly missed the place after reaching the top of the escallators. It just blends in with all of the other lights and visuals in New York, New York Casino.

I didn't mind the open-corner, exposed location that overlooks the casino floor. Nor did I mind the passer-bys, as this is Las Vegas.

The selection didn't exactly knock my socks off, but do have a nice array of Belgians, Micros, and Imports -- I'd guess about 50 different beers in all (including a few bud / corrona types). I had an Alaskan ESB, Black Beute Porter, and a Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale. These were the only two brewery offerings that we cannot get back in Kentucky.

The staff was standard -- they knew their beers but didn't really entice you with their enthusiasm or interest.

No foods were offered, but a cup of chex-mix was always available. Although the bar would have fallen a bit short of good reviews anywhere else, the is about as good as it gets on the strip.

As mentioned earlier, this is more of a beer kiosk than a bar. It sits in a crowded walkway in the mezzanine level as you enter the NY NY casino.

About 40 stools surround this square shaped "beer counter". The tap selection is, by Vegas strip standards, pretty good. If you're a tourist and want something a little nicer than the usual offerings then this isn't a bad place to check out.

Service was about average for a place of this relatively small size. The people were friendly and did their job well enough.

Selection was as mentioned, better than you'll find just about anywhere on the Vegas strip. That's not saying it was fantastic, just that you will find a number of brews here you won't see at the other tourist hotels. All in all, it's always nice to have another choice for a brew on tap while in that area.

No food available.

The wife and I actually walked by this place before looking back over my shoulder to see the Pour 24 sign. It is in a horrible location next to the escalator across from the Houdini Magic Shop and the casino entrance. Picture a crowded shopping mall around the holiday season with loads of people and screaming kids. Then hear the Houdini shop magician yelling to the crowd in front of the store selling some magic items. This is basically a bar kiosk in the middle of a mall. No walls, no TVs, no food.

The beer selection for Vegas is good, but the list is not overly remarkable. Some Rogues, Alaskan ESB and Amber, three New Belgium beers, Big Sky IPA and Moose Drool, Firestone Pale and Double Barrel, Sin City Amber, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Blue Moon. Sierra Anniversary along with some Breckinridge Vanilla Porter and Oatmeal Stout rounded it out. There are also a good number of bottles including the basic macros. The beers we had were fresh.

Prices are a bit steep as pint range from $6 - $ 6.50, and four 6 oz samples will cost you $14. There were also increased prices for five and six samples reaching up to $19. A bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter was listed at $9.50.

The bar top has a cold blueish color and macro bottles are stored in ice filled containers on the bar, while the micro bottles are stored in the refridgerators. The tap lineup is hard to read since the taps are sideways from the bar front, and blocked on the other side. But they do have a nice printed menu. There is a row of stools overlooking the first floor casino if you want to people watch.

I do not see this place lasting long before changing its lineup. Out of the 20 or so people who stepped up to order drinks, only the wife and I along with one other customer ordered from the micros. Most were Corona or Bud bottles or sodas. It is nice to see a bar with a better beer selection in Vegas, but the atmosphere and prices makes you want to leave quickly. If you are stuck on the strip this may do, but I still suggest getting off the strip to Big Dog's or Chicago for beers and Rosemary's for great food and beer pairings.

Overall, a nice addition to the Las Vegas beer scene. I can see this place being frequented by many BAs in the coming years. Beer selection is very good for Las Vegas standards. Just like the website boasts, 24 beers on tap, 24 beers in the bottles. Though nothing jumped out at me in the bottle list, a couple drafts looked good. I started with a Breckinridge Vanilla Porter. Though not my favorite style, very nice way to start the evening. Moving on, I had a Rogue Shakespeare Stout on tap, as well as a Big Sky IPA from Montana, all solid offerings. Full beer menu is located on the website. Though I did miss the lack of food options, the free peanuts made up for it (though they are a spicey bunch of mixed nuts!). Atmosphere is the only thing lacking at this place. It felt as though they've had some extra space in the NY, NY for awhile that they never put to use, and decided to put a beer bar right next to the escalator. There is no intimacy to this pub. The ambiance seems to get drowned out by all the foot traffic and neighboring loud music of Coyote Ugly. I shouldn't be negative, because I had a super positive experience, most of it coming from the helpful bar staff. Pints range from $6 to $6.50, and half pint tastings of four total beers are offered at $14 dollars a pop. Very reasonable for the Strip. All ye Las Vegas visitors, come on by to Pour 24, when you're in town. I'll think you'll enjoy a pint, or two, or three.
