I stopped in at Hop Nuts Brewing in Las Vegas, Nevada. I really enjoyed this spot. Unlike many Las Vegas breweries, where you still get the vibe with slot machines, etc. this felt more like a brewery atmosphere. Chill. Their Passion Fruit Sour was really tasty. Crisp. Fresh. Light. I loved it and enjoyed relaxing and drinking it and taking in the experience in this little brewery escape from Las Vegas.
Las Vegas, Nevada, is not known for craft beer. I found a hidden gem when I stopped in at Bad Beat Brewing in Henderson, Nevada. Their Imperial Milk Stout with Serrano Peppers, aka The Heater, is off the charts. First, think delicious, rich, smooth milk stout, deep and creamy. Add the heat of Serrano peppers which adds a kicking bite at the end. At first it’s just a small bite. After a full glass your palate is totally warmed up. And at 9.5% it packs a bit of a punch. I wish this beer was available at home.
I stopped in at Lovelady Brewing in Henderson, Nevada and greatly enjoyed their 9th Island Pineapple Sour. It did not have a strong pineapple taste, however, it was a delicious and very drinkable beer. Just slightly tart and tangy. I had a small taste of the Café Femenino Coffee Porter which was smooth, coffee flavorful, and delicious.
I stopped in at The Brewer’s Cabinet in Reno Nevada for a Tahoe Beer. Great all-around beer. Now I’m wishing I had bought the t-shirt. This is a great place to stop in Reno.
I stopped in at Pigeon Head Brewery in Reno, Nevada and enjoyed a flight of their beers. This brewery brews only lager beers. All of the beers in the flight were delicious and I recommend visiting this place.
I stopped in at Under the Rose Brewing Company in Reno, Nevada and tasted the porter beer, chocolate rye porter. I really enjoyed the rich chocolate along with the bite of rye. Very nice beer.
I stopped in at Stoneyhead Brewing Company in Reno, Nevada and enjoyed the honey pale ale. The honey adds just a bit of richness and sweetness to it which was very enjoyable. Great beer.
I stopped in at The Brew Brothers in the El Dorado Casino in Reno Nevada for dinner and a beer. I enjoyed the spinach salad for dinner and I enjoyed the barrel aged Hopason which had nice hints of peach which perfectly ended the day.
I stopped in at Brasserie Saint James in Reno Nevada and found their saison and Belgian trippel to be very good beers. I would definitely recommend this place for a good beer.
I stopped in at Great Basin Brewing Company in Reno, Nevada on a Tuesday night and enjoyed a $2.50 draft of “ICKY” Ichthyosaur IPA. I found this to be a very drinkable IPA and enjoyed it thoroughly.
