For the Strip, this place has an excellent selection of craft beer. I had a Sculpin from Ballast Point as well as Jaipur from Thornbridge. I frankly wished I had found this place a little earlier in my trip. The Scuplin as $8 which, again for the Strip, wasn't unreasonable. We did not care for the food, however. My flatbread pizza was undercooked as was the shepherd's pie my husband ordered. I would go back, but only for the beer.

I love the selection. The drifter pale is excellent. Service is horrible. Does not matter if you tip a lot or not. I have been coming to the pub for over 10 years: nothing you do changes the service.
Beer is very expensive and food very lacking. But I come for the beer. Could be great place.

I went here after a suggestion of the bartender at Pour 24 in the NY NY casino.
The bartender said they apparently had 180 taps. Pretty sweet. The tap list had a good amount of macro junk, but they did have a nice book of tap and bottles available. I was also informed about the reserve list as well. There are some nice bottles like Firestone Walker 15 and Sucaba, but at 32 for Sucaba and 60 for 15; I wasnt about to throw down for those.
The tap and bottle list was laid out nicely across styes for Amber, IPA, Belgian, Pale Ale and the like. Most Belgian drafts were not even close to being considered at 15 for a draft pour; but the US Belgians and other moderate gravity pours for the style were ok at about 7-8 bucks a pint. I had some Ommegang Abbey, Firestone DBA, and New Belgium Ranger. All were of good quality and no obvious high age. Turnover rate should be pretty good considering the location and popularity of the casino.
As far as atmosphere it was pretty good. No obscene loud music with the Olympics playing on the TV. Pretty pleasant for a Sunday night.
Overall I would say that this was pretty worthy bar for Vegas. Thy had a lot of good selections on draft and I had enjoyed myself. A very worthy stop for sure in you are in the Monte Carlo casino.

A - A very standard pub feel... Very long bar with lots and lots of taps displayed... Lots of wood throughout...
Q - Definitely a quality establishment... A nice place to stop while in Las Vegas...
Ser - Average at best... Stopped twice on a recent trip sitting once at the bar (where the service was above average) and once at a table during a slow lunch hour (and the serve was average at best)...
Sel - 120 brews on tap and another good number in bottles... Can't much argue with that, though there wasn't anything that really wowed be on the beer list either... Also some sample options and beer float options...
F - Flat bread pizza (Organic Meatball) and onion rings were money... Best meal we had on our recent trip to Vegas (including several stops at quality restaurants)... Very well done...
V - As is the case with most places in Vegas this establishment is a tad bit pricey overall, but average when compared to similar establishments on the strip...

Thanks to BA'ers for pointing this place out.
A - Plenty of sports on the flatscreens, obvious cool craft beer vibe with all the taps. I checked it out on a Sunday night and it was kinda dead. Overall not bad, and you can have a conversation and not yell over music.
Q - Server seemed knowledgeable. Pours were all perfect. In fact the Moose Drool I had on tap had a phenomenal head. It is a restaurant first, but one that does a solid job with beer.
S - Server was attentive, and even followed up when the bartender got backed up filling pints.
Sel - I loved it. Tons of stuff I can't get in NY. The hard part was making up my mind. Menu was organized (something many places screw up). I could find my gems easily, and all were there to try.
F - Decent. Quality food but it is a hybrid of upscale bar food/simple cuisine. I was full and like the sliders I ordered. My wife was equally happy.
V - Even me who lives in the pricey New York City area found it a bit crazy. I didn't mind because I got my fix of great craft, but the bill was heavy (2 burger plates, 3 beers, 1 soft drink = $60) Just be prepared.
I'd go here again, even just for the novelty of trying stuff that is west coast only. Its Vegas; if the bartender doesn't get my cash the dealer will.

Stopped by here on a recent visit to Vegas. After being somewhat let down by the burger bar at mandalay bay, figured id give this place a shot.
Was here 4 years ago when it was still the microbrewery. Looks a lot the same.
Had some wings to snack on that were so so. I remember the food being better when I was here a few years back.
Service was obnoxiously slow when I arrived, but the servers switched out and things improved a little.
A somewhat treasurous listing of beers at first glance. Most are nothing too exciting or hard to find, with lots of BMC variaties. First pint was a Squatters Hop Rising. Tasted ok, but like it had baked in the hot sun for week or two before being tapped. I would like to try this beer fresh. Fellow BA shared the same feelings about freshness of thier IPA/DIPA. I noticed several typos and duplicates on their beer menu., and found one out by accident. Met a fellow BA here flying solo too, so I ordered us a bottle of Squatters Outter Darkness to share. Bill came and was charged $40 instead of the listed $16. WOW!!! They had it listed in two places with WAY different prices. A quick word with the bartend and he had his manager take care of it. Fyi i looked at their menu online today and it's still F'd up.
Overall, just above average, and one of the few places on the strip to get a non-BMC. Watch the prices as they can get a little crazy (reference the $40 Outter Darkness and just about anything on their big bottle list). This place seems to still struggle to find it's identity. It's like someone half assing what could potentially be a way better place - kind of a shame actually.

The former Monte Carlo Brew Pub is now known simply as The Pub at Monte Carlo. The layout is very much unchanged from it's brewpub days. There's still copper piping in the open industrial style ceiling. The most notable difference is the lit wall of beer names behind the bar as you enter. (and of course the dozens of taps) TV's are about as prominent as any place on the strip outside the sports books.
The beer menu is long, but is heavier on ambers and imports than stouts and IPAs. Really, that's getting nitpicky. There should be something on the menu of interest to just about anybody.
The food menu is full of just about every thing you'd expect to see on a pub menu. Burgers, sandwiches, wings, fish & chips, flat breads/pizza, pasta and salad are all there. The burgers, meatball sliders, and pizza my group ordered were all delicious.
The service here isn't what it should be, especially at this price point. We made two stops here; one at the bar, and one for lunch. The bar visit, there might have been as many bartenders as patrons, but that didn't mean you were going to be served in a timely manner. Lots of guys standing around. The lunch trip was a little better. Our waitress was friendly, but lets just say efficiency was lacking.
Places like this frustrate me. It's so close to being something great, but it's not. It's too expensive for the level of service they offer.

Stopped in here for a beer after dinner at the Burger Bar in Mandalay Place, my first visit since its brewpub days.
The Pub has the feel of a large sports bar with lots of TVs, a long curved bar and plenty of high tops and tables. The tap list is large, even after allowing for the 25 or so taps of non-craft stuff. A good selection of local taps, which would be awesome if those breweries were better. But good grades for effort. Any bar with FW Union Jack gets my seal of approval.
Service was very good. One guy brought me a beer list within a minute of my pulling up a stool. Another was there 90 seconds later to take my order.
My expectations were rather low so maybe that's why I was so pleased with this stop. I'd sooner come here again than, say, the Todd English P.U.B. Prices were high by the standards of Earth outside the Strip but pretty reasonable considering where this place is located.

A- This had the feel of a classy Bdubs to it. Sports bar with Tv's all around and a huge bar
Q-The quality of the food was excelent and the beer quality was excelent too
S-Service was good. our waiter was very friendly and pretty knowlegable about beer and other things on the menu
S-Selection was huge. They have like 70 + taps. now 3/4 are normal stuff but they did have a few unique stuff thats not local to me. They also had a few bottles bu nothing i hadn't seen or heard of.
F-The food was very good. I had the french dip and it was pricey but it was worth it.
V- well your in vegas so u exspect stuff to be more pricey. Happy hour from 3-7 is the time to go to anywhere in vegas or u will get ripped off. The prices were high but we exspected it
Overall this was a nice place to go. Not really a craft beer drinker paradise but over all atleast they offered alot more than BMC which is all over in vegas. We stayed in the monte carlo so thats why we went. I wouldn't say go out of ur way to go here. But if u find urself in the monte carlo and hungry or thirsty def. stop in.

I was at the Brand Steakhouse at the Monte Carlo, one of the three or four best in Vegas, for a business dinner and it was over just after eight so I thought I would wonder over to the pub.I have not been in this pub since they were brewing their own medicore beer.The atmosphere is sort of like a sports bar. The service was slow and unattentive.
They claim they have 70 taps which they do but almost one third are BMC.Trying to find something interesting and different was almost as hard as the Yard House. I settled for a house pilsner, which was OK and a Drifter Pale Ale, this was my first time for this beer and I was surprised how good it was.
If someone were in the Monte Carlo this is not a bad stop for a beer but I would not go out of my way to come here.And a final note, as stated in previous reviews the prices are very high.
