Figured while I was in this neck of the woods, I should try out this brewery, never been impressed particularly with their beer, but hey, I'm on this side of town.

I like that the place has the desert motif going, lots of brick, sandstone, and the granite countertops inside the place are pretty kick ass. And its nice to have a place in Vegas with adequate windows. The patronage is nothing special, and even the brewery employees seem to be a little different, never seen a brewer smoking cigs in the brewery and drinking a beer before. Service was good, although it better be on a Thursday afternoon w/ almost no one inside.

Quality of the beers are completely average. Same with the selection. Actually, the selection was less than average. Nothing barrel, sour, imperial, stout etc. . . just the usuals, I think the most exotic thing was a rye ipa, that was completely average. But i can say the beers aren't 'bad' of featuring any off flavors, they just suffer from that, same yeast strain, sameness of all their beers function, none of which are particularly adventurous. A decent place, cool looking, but I just wish there was more substance from within.

Not worth a special trip out of the way to this place, but it is worth a trip if you're in the area.

This is a beautiful, new facility just North of the Strip and Fremont St. It is architecturally memorable; open and airy, with lots of windows. There is a long bar, a large outdoor patio and another room with tables looking out into the production area. The night I was there it was almost empty, with just one bartender on duty, but he kept up well with the customers' needs and was enthusiastic about, and knowledgeable of, Tenaya Creek's beers. There was no kitchen, but I'm told they typically have food trucks. The vibe was classy, laid back, and the other customers seemed to be beer enthusiasts rather than random bar patrons.

The beers on tap were excellent. There were close to twenty house beers in a wide variety of styles, along with a few well-selected guest taps. It's not a huge selection of beers, but they were consistently very good to excellent. Of all the brewery taprooms I've visited in Las Vegas so far, this one had the best beer, and isn't that what we go to taprooms for? I highly recommend a visit.

Cool facility north of downtown, convenient just off highway, with ample parking. Building has a Frank Lloyd Wright look to it, and entry opens to long bar that seats about 25 on opposite wall and tables along the perimeter, with a small outdoor patio. 14 well assorted beers of their own on tap, along with 8 guest taps. Open friendly vibe. Laid back, yet efficient bartender. Brewery also sells bottles and cans to go, including **single cans** and bombers. Rotating food trucks.

North of downtown Las Vegas, Tenaya has a good selection. A good group of locals can always be found along with occasional tourists. The selections include original offerings as well as a collection of guest taps from other craft breweries. Food trucks are available and the hours of operation are extensive.

I like the new place much more than I remember liking their old location. Built or designed with more attitude and showcasing the beer much better.
Thank you Tenaya Creek, and I'll be back.

Went in the middle of the day so it was not busy. Service was outstanding and good beer selection of theirs and some other breweries. Looks like a great place to sit on the patio and watch the world go by.

Visited at 5 on a Friday. Space is a bit small, 15 seat bar and a half dozen tables beyond. Some outdoor seating too. 15 of their own and a dozen quality guest taps. It is a slightly sketch walk from downtown, but I found it fine. Electrical outlets under the bar rail to charge your phone, always a welcome treat. Will be adding to my rotation

A very small tap room, with a cheery guy with dreads behind the counter to answer all your annoying questions. The service was exceptional and the vibe was nice.I enjoyed sitting down and getting to know Tenaya's beers.

Last weekend I was in Las Vegas and hit up six breweries over the course of my trip, and Tenaya Creek was without a doubt my favorite. I was impressed by their house beers, especially their imperial stout which was only available in bombers and not on tap. Service was outstanding, our guy was highly beer knowledgeable and we were able to sit, drink and talk beer for a couple of hours.

Another great feature of Tenaya Creek is their unusually large selection of guest taps. In addition to Teanaya's 9 taps, they had 19 guest beers available; the list was well-curated and had some awesome options. Emphasis was based on both quality and variety, so there were lots of interesting styles to try. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who likes beer.

Nice spot. Guess they just moved in few weeks ago. Clean and new, and off the strip! Great deals on growlers, like half off Sunday's or something like that. Was quite impressed, selection of guest beers as well as their own was really good too. A nice all around selection.

Unfortunately you'll pretty much need a car to get to this brewery as it's quite a way from anything touristy, but if you can make it, I'd suggest a trip out here. The d├ęcor is nothing special, but it has a very welcoming, unpretentious feel with not too many features to remind you you're in gambling central. The bartender was super chill and suggested beers we might want to sample from the 10 or so they had on tap. The beers were really nice overall, especially the big beers they were pouring. Hoppy beers were a little oniony, but I was the only one who seemed to notice. Overall a really great place to escape from the madness and heat of Vegas for a few delicious brews.
