Hop Nuts Brewing, Las Vegas, NV

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.

Bad Beat Brewing, Henderson, NV

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.
