Lots of talk about this place, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
Lots of beer signs and posters outside and in the entrance. Cool so far. Pool tables and TV's in a small room to the left upon entering. The main room has a large wooden bar in the center (with poker machines built in), a few scattered tables, some pool tables, and a chalkboard with taps. Beer posters are on the walls and I can clearly see a fair number of decent bottles there for the display.
I grabbed a table...and waited...and waited...and waited. I finally flagged a waitress and asked for the beer menu. She seemed nice at first and found one hiding somewhere in the back. She pointed out the draft list as well. It was mentioned that some of the bottled items weren't available due to a pending event in the coming week. Fair enough - no big deal.
The bottled list was pretty nice. Lots of items from Stone, DFH, the Bruery, as well as some Belgian and German imports. The tap list wasn't bad, too. Nothing amazing, but pretty good.
After making our decisions, I waited for another 10 minutes and again had to flag her down from talking to some other patrons. I'm all for keeping things friendly but c'mon. We weren't alone - other people were having to track her down as well...both at the bar and at tables.
After ordering I was informed that the items we wanted weren't available...and apparently haven't been for quite some time. In fact, almost nothing on the menu was available and 3 of the 10 or so drafts were also gone. They didn't have anything less than 6% ABV anywhere...and after copping attitude with us after placing 4 orders for items that they apparently might *never* have had, we just got 3 'Lil Sumpin Sumpin's and got out of there. It's probably worth mentioning that there were a whole host of dirty dishes at various tables and bar seats that were there when we arrived and still weren't cleared 1/2 hour later when we left. Service was a joke and the menu made the Falling Rock's seem up to the minute accurate. I didn't stick around long enough to eat, and the only signs I had of the food were dirty plates scattered around. Luckily my friend from the area was able to drive us elsewhere. The only real upside is that the prices on the menu appeared to be good/low in general. Of course that doesn't matter much when nothing on the menu is available and you can't find anyone to order from.
Not going back here and I don't recommend it...local or not.

First trip to Vegas and had scoped this place out prior to landing. Aces & Ales is a good distance from the Strip. Cab was about $30 with tip, but worth it. The atmosphere is great. Our waitress was excellent. We stayed so long that one of the owners took over for her when her shift ended...or maybe we were just so damn obnoxious. Either way, both servers were great.
Tap selection was good with lots of variety. Bottle list was also quite impressive.
I have absolutely no complaints about the bar, however, trying to get a cab FROM the bar is, quite frankly, a bitch. After several (at least 4) calls and an 1.5 hour wait on a Thursday, one finally arrived. I love this bar, but damn it is like a black hole in this area of town...you may never escape.

Enjoy this place, simply put.
Try and get there once a month. They have 20 beers on tap, constantly rotating plus a wide bottle selection. I have yet to have been there when the same thing is always on. They keep it mixed up and try to have new things coming through.
Prices are great. Draft menu is $6 for a pint or goblet, depending on the beer. $4 beers on Sunday.
Food is fantastic. No idea who the cooks are but they better keep them around because nothing goes better with good beer than good food. Food ranges from finger appetizers to pizza, burgers, house mac n' cheese, and sandwiches.
If you're ever in Las Vegas, venture off the strip for an afternoon/evening and check this place out. Well worth it.

I was able to stop by Aces and Ales during a bachelor party to Vegas this weekend. We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon around 2pm and found a small handful of people…which was perfect after spending a few days on the strip. The place was pretty dark, but you are greeted by the warm glow of a beer fridge proudly displaying a very good selection of aged bottled beers from the likes of Stone, Deschutes, Firestone Walker to name a few. We picked up a Sucaba and The Abyss (2010). Pleanty of TVs to watch a game and the service was pretty good. Our servers were friendly. The 20 or so taps were great to see, especially coming from the Midwest and wanting to check out West Coast offerings. They also had some really cool barrel-aged stuff on tap as well. We also took advantage of a happy hour where you can get any pour and a burger for $10…Great Deal!
Getting there from the strip is tough. It will be a $20-$30 cab ride. Getting back was probably the most difficult aspect of our adventure. We should have called for a taxi service about an hour before we were ready to go. Just make sure you have your travel plans figured out if you are staying on the strip or downtown.

This was a place that I wanted to check out and Im glad I did. The atmosphere is similar to other Vegas bars with video poker, pool tables and they have a shuffle board to the side which is unique. The selection as far as beer is impressive and reasonable 6 dollar pours, but the bottle selection and beer to go is a bit overpriced. The price is fair in my opinion because they had vintages going back to 2004 and it supported alot of regional breweries. I got some 3F and Abyss which I have been longing to get my hands on. All in all a good experience and I will definitely return.

Overall impression is the numbers should speak for themselves but I'll still pay the respect and say a thing or two.. After reading a couple of reviews, I had to see the place for myself and thank you, thank you, thank you!! Stupid of me to have not come in with a bigger appetite but what I did have (the Cajun Mac N Cheese) chased with some delightful Oaked Bastard was superb! I could taste the love put in to the food and see it all throughout the menu.. I left with a full growler of Double Bastard which far succeeded any 18 pack I would have bought downtown for my hotel stay on the strip. The Service was Outstanding (and Gorgeous;) The Gaming was good and... F it!! just go see for yourself! You will NOT regret it! I will be back there every Vegas trip!
