There’s no shortage of incredible bars in Las Vegas. In recent years, a number of great breweries have begun opening around the city. This week, The Front Yard opens to the public and promises to bring some fantastic new beers to both locals and tourists.
Vegas is truly becoming a hub for craft beer fans. Today, we’re going to look at what this new venue has to offer. We’ll also look at some of the other great breweries currently operating here.
Let’s get into it!
The Front Yard Officially Opens at Ellis Island Casino
Ellis Island Casino isn’t one of Las Vegas’ most prestigious casinos. It’s located off the Las Vegas Strip on Koval Lane and first opened to the public in 1967. In 1997, the casino underwent a $12 million expansion project yet it’s still not a particularly popular gambling venue when compared to many others.
It’s not for a lack of trying, though. This venue has worked on new ways to attract gamblers for years. It’s opened several restaurants, some of which have gained favorable reviews with tourists and locals. This week, Ellis Island Casino is opening up one of its most exciting new venues to date.
The Front Yard is officially scheduled to open on Friday. Interestingly, the owners have decided to open the brewery’s doors a week early. Christina Ellis, the casino’s marketing director, commented on the early opening to the media this week.
“We opened our doors on Friday, the night after Thanksgiving,” she said. “So we were able to capture some of that drinking night, day after Thanksgiving, where everybody’s kind of sick of their families. People were able to come, try some of the food, and all of that stuff.”
Despite opening every day at 3 pm, this still counts as a “soft opening.” The official opening of the venue is still scheduled for Friday. There will be more than a dozen house-made beers available and food by the creators of Metro Pizza. If you’re in the city this week, make sure to check it out!
Other Breweries Available in Las Vegas Right Now
As we’ve already mentioned, Las Vegas is beginning to emerge as a real craft beer hub. Over the past few years, several world-class breweries have opened in this city. Some of them put on events for guests every single week.
Hop Nuts Brewing is one venue that’s grown hugely popular in Las Vegas. It offers a huge number of home-made beers in a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. It’s rated one of the best breweries in Las Vegas and two taprooms for guests to check out.
CraftHaus Brewery is another fantastic beer venue currently operating in this city. It was established in 2014 and has already been awarded several prestigious awards including the Favorite Local Brewery, Reader’s Choice, and Nevada’s Greenest Brewery award. There are beers on tap and available in cans that guests can purchase.
Many locals here also recommend Big Dog’s Draft House. It’s home to many award-winning beers and puts on some of the best events of any brewery in the city. There’s even a brew school here that helps to teach individuals how to make beer!
