Solid escape from the freak show that is Fremont Street, Fair prices, quality beer, and a normal scene in a not so normal part of town. No kitchen, but Mexican food was being grilled up right outside.

Located in "Neonopolis" and beside "Slotzilla" zipline.

Visited on a Sunday evening. I agree with other reviewers who said it was a peaceful island in the tumult of Fremont St. This is a small bar located just outside the covered area of Fremont. It consists of a simple bar and a few tables. The brewery is visible from the bar and aging barrels line the walls. The operation seems very small for the number of taps and the care that was obviously taken with each one.

There are about 10 Banger taps and 10 guest taps. The beer quality was excellent and all the beers I tried were well-made and adhered to their professed styles. The Solera Sour was particulary notable and excellent. Service was based on ordering at the bar and seating yourself, but the staff circulated occasionally to refill water glasses and see how you were doing. I found them enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the beer. Banger did not serve food, but they had a "street kitchen" place on their small outdoor patio that made fresh food and served it to you.

I normally avoid Fremont due to the crowds and craziness, but this good brewery taproom gives me another reason to visit.

Little place at the zipline start of the Fremont Street experience. Small store front with bar that seats 10 and a few tables, both inside and out along the walkway. A dozen house beers on tap and 4 or 5 guest taps. Service was reasonable as was the food.

Visited early on a Friday afternoon. Located by the zipline start on Fremont street. Nice interior. About ten of their beers on tap and a few guest taps. Service was adequate at best, did not care if we were there or not. Beer quality was decent. An oasis from the hustle of Fremont Street.

Down on Fremont, this brewery is fine but has a limited selection. It's a smaller place, and the quality of the brews is average. There are some interesting beer to chose from however. Worth a visit if you are here already.

Decent spot and nice enough lay out, the issue with the vibe not being my favorite isn't so much about the brewery and more about it being Fremont, whose scene just really does not do anything positive for me. Sitting outside on the patio, I felt like I was hanging on Fremont Street, not a brewery. Inside was better, but we were outside so that's all I can review. The place was smaller than I expected. Beer quality was solid. I loved the Coffee Kolsch, the Nitro Cappucino Porter couldn't quite hold up to the nitro but wasn't bad. Service was decent. Selection was nice. Maybe 10 of their beers with some variety, including barrel aged offering. Overall, I wasn't expecting much when stopping in but was pleased with what I discovered. I'd happily drink here again even if it is on Fremont.

Vibe - I was here mind afternoon so not icy going on but everyone was friendly
Quality - nice bar lots of tables and an outdoor place to sit
Service - always eager to answer questions and give you a beer
Selection - not only do they have a good selection of their own beer but they also have a ton of guest beers

Stop #516 on my world brewery tour. The close "early" around midnight and got there at 11:30 - in time for one beer. It was a well-done IPA and I was able to chat up the bartender about two other Fremont breweries and what to get. They don't have a carry out license so you have to consume there. A nice place and worth the stop if you're visiting the Fremont Experience.

A nice site to see when your stuck drinking macros when inside most casinos. While its not in a casino its on Fremont St in a pretty cool place. I stopped in while bouncing from casino to casino for a flight and I wasn't disappointed with tasty beers and a chill place to drink them. To me its a must stop if you find yourself on Fremont St.

Though this brewer has been held up as an example of what is best in the NV craft-brew scene, I wasn't much impressed with their location.

The vibe was quite possibly the most disappointing aspects of this location. The bartenders were more interested in their locals and regulars and not so much with the touristy-types like I myself had presented. Not much conversation was had making for a boring time when you go to the brewery by yourself. Quality, however, was impressive as well as their selection. Not only was their selection of their own made brews extensive, they offered "guest" brews as well. The service was, well, serviceable. I got my selection quickly and I got paid out quickly as well. And to top it all off, no stickers or coasters - none! How does a brewer not have these on hand, especially for a place as popular as this. How? I walked away none-to-impressed with this brewery.

Service is very good and everyone is friendly. Great selection of beers and you can pay $30 to drink from open to close and try all their beers. Highly recommend if you are coming to downtown Las Vegas

Easy to find as this is located on Fremont Street in the pedestrian zone next to the Heart Attack Grill. Overall I am not a fan of the downtown Vegas area, but this place is more comfortable than other bars in the area. There are a few outdoor tables and a grill for food. Inside the place is spacious and has an industrial feel to it. The bar can seat about 8 comfortably and there are a bunch of tables too. There is a wall of shirts and hats in the back.

Banger had 10 house beers on draft covering many styles. In addition they carry about 16 guest beers. The beers were of good quality but nothing really stood out to me as being a great beer I want to come back for. Service was friendly and prompt. Definitely a must stop for an BA if you are in the area.
