    I am heading to Vegas and staying at the Luxor from this Thursday thru Sunday for the opening rounds of NCAA basketball. Any suggestions on places to get a good craft beer and not pay a 300% markup?

    I also would like to pick up some beers I can't get in NC while I am there. Any suggestions on bottle shops or stores that carry good beer and anything that I should try to look for (seasonals/rarities) while I am there?

    Thanks.

    Get off the strip if you can. Will you have a car? Aces and Ales comes highly recommended.

    I am debating renting a car for at least one day to venture around Vegas, but not too far.

    Stayed in Luxor last month...be sure to hit Public House there. They have some good craft beer finds. If you want a bigger tap/bottle list, venture to the Public House @ the Venetian. Cheers!
