I dont know of any Nevada/LV beers per se. However, based on location you should have options from Colorado, California and New Mexico.

Here is your research:

https://www.thrillist.com/drink/las-veg ... vegas-bars

From those, I would definitely hit up Atomic Liquors to see if they what they have.
I would also hit up Big Dog's Draft House, Banger Brewing and Public House.

Las Vegas: 4 of the best spots for craft beer on the Strip
Troy Petenbrink - AXS Contributor

It's amazing what a skilled brewer is able to accomplish with grain, hops, yeast and water. And in recent years, the popularity and availability in Las Vegas of craft beers being made by brewmasters from around the world have grown exponentially. Here are some of the best places for these specialty brewskies on the Strip.

Located inside The Grand Canal Shoppes of the Venetian, The Public House, an upscale gastropub, features more than 200 specialty beers include 24 taps flowing with hearty lagers, rare pilsners and oak-barrel-housed cask beers. It also offers some unique beer cocktails, such as the "B AND B & B," made with benedictine, brandy, Firestone Pale 31 and an orange peel. Home to Nevada’s first certified beer cicerone (the equivalent of a wine sommelier), The Public House takes its food as seriously as its beer. Some of its unique dishes include short ribs braised with Black Butte Porter; Bouchot mussels made with Hoegaarden beer, shallots, bacon and crème fraiche; and Welsh Rarebit, made with Tenaya Creek IPA.

3355 S Las Vegas Blvd
(702) 407-5310

Located in the Monte Carlo, The Pub offers one of the largest collection of beers on the Strip. It is especially popular for its tasting flights, which includes an option for locally produced craft brews from Sin City, Big Dog's, Joseph James, and Tenaya Creek. The Pub also has a fun casual menu and a staff very capable of providing pairing suggestions. And if you're up for testing your eating skills, The Pub Challenge pits you against an eight pound burger and a 45 minute time limit. If you succeed, you get a free commemorative t-shirt.

Since its launch in 2005, Las Vegas-based Sin City Brewing Co. has been committed to brewing a superior craft beer for tourist and locals to enjoy. It now has three branded craft beer bars: inside the Miracle Miles Shops at Planet Hollywood, inside The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, and a Strip-front location at the corner of Harmon Ave. and Las Vegas Blvd. In addition to a seasonal brew that is rotated throughout the year, Sin City Brewing Co. has created five signature brews available on tap at each of its locations, including Sin City Light, Since City, Amber, Sin City Weisse, Sin City IPA and Sin City Stout. The brewery recently teamed up with ARIA Resort & Casino to create a special edition pale ale that is only available within the AAA Five Diamond resort.

Flour & Barly specializes in individual brick oven-style pizzas with wood-fired crusts made with All Trumps flour, San Marzano tomatoes, whole milk mozzarella and house-made toppings. Among the 16 delicious specialty pizzas is The Parma, a white pizza topped with mozzarella, parmesan ricotta, prosciutto, & arugula with balsamic glaze. In addition to pizza, the menu includes Italian-inspired appetizers, pasta dishes, Panini’s and salads. Flour & Barley also features barrel aged & handcrafted cocktails as well as an extensive beer program with seasonal beers on draft and wine on draft.

KY Ag Director Ryan will be announcing soon that hops farming will return to KY. KY farmers ceased hops farming because of drought & mold 70 plus years ago and the crop proliferated in the Pacific NW. Other SE states are investigating hops farming. The desired buzz starts with the farmer.

I was at downtown specs 2 weeks ago, they had "Mystery Cases" securely taped up, for 9.99.
You could peek in the handholes on the side. I looked at several cases and grabbed one where I saw some Oaked Arrogant Bastard! Score.

So when I opened it up:

4 Oaked Bastards
4 Newcastle Browns
4 Kona Brewing Koko Browns
4 Shiner Anniversay Pils
4 HB Dunkels
4 Traveler Grapefruit Shandys

The only thing I havent had yet is the Newcastle Brown. Not looking forward to that.

I judged American Stouts Sunday. 9 beers first round, pushed 2 to second round. In the second round pushed 2 out of 7 to the best of show. The best of show will be selected for brewing as a limited release by a local brewery.

Some very nice stouts. Some of the nicest where sweet stouts (too sweet and not enough hops for style). Hung around and had some beers at the locale we were judging.

This is outstanding news, but dont go looking for KY hops for a few years, it takes em that long.

Hop demand has been outstripping production for a while. Some critical wrong decisions were made a few years ago, by people going to corn crops for biofuel purposes. Add to that the time it takes to get hops going. Well, the craft beer movement has continued exploding, hop prices have gone up, and its becoming worth more peoples while to grow them.

Friday evening I will hop in the GFs campercan and head for Colorado.

A long overnight run can get one into CO, NW from Houston, around Dallas, NW through Amarillo (skipping Oaklahoma),
through the corner of New Mexico and north into CO.

We have an aggressive list of 25+ breweries to hit!

I remember in college when some neighbors went to Colorado skiing and came back with cases of Coors....believe it or not that was a big thing back in the day....needless to say, what a disappointment....it's pisswater than makes Corona look like a Trappist ale by comparison.

BTW, "brewed with mountain spring water"? Complete bullshit. All water for brewing is boiled so it doesn't matter. Heineken uses Amsterdam tap water.

Recent trip to Boston-maritime and French Canada

Harpoon which is big in Boston was not bad at all but not premium like Charlotte's Hop Drop and Roll. 1772 from PEI was pretty good not great as was La Civoire from Quebec. Had a good one in Bar Harbor ME Thunder Hole Ale better than the others. Tell me what I missed out on.

Had oysters in PEI that were so good the beer didn't even matter.
