I stopped here while in Vegas in late October, after searching on Beerfly. I was really surprised by just how good this beer store was, I didn't really expect this much. Vegas is an awesome place to visit, but beer is not really the focus. Lee's services the beer-thirsty though, with a huge selection at prices that are surprisingly low considering the city. There were tons of Belgian beers and a decent handful of German and UK beers, but I opted for some west coast craft brews that aren't available at home (Alaskan Smoked Porter and a 6-pack of Obsidian). Next time I'm in Vegas I'm stocking up here first thing. It's only a 15 minute drive from the airport as well as the strip.

Stopped here on a beer hunting expedition while on a trip to Vegas.
This place has some good quality beers and definitely worth the stop. A very nice selection of craft beers, the prize being Deschutes Black Butte XX (got a half dozen!). They also had HopHenge and other Deschutes beers, a lot of New Belgium beers, some Firestone Walker. Also a reasonable selection of Belgians and European beers. Pretty good selection of Rocheforts and Saison Dupont, etc. No Alesmith which was a bit of a disappointment since some reviews indicated they might have some.
I like this place.
UPDATE: A couple of subsequent trips to LV for business have been quite disappointing. It seems that Lee's has de-emphasized the beer program since my earlier review. Nothing special for the out of town shopper, still a solid place if you're local.

Located on Sunset, almost directly across the street from Barley's Brewery & Casino. Like the store on W. Lake Mead Blvd., this is a warehouse style store with a huge wine selection, but with a very good beer selection, too. The beer selection is about as good as that in the W. Lake Mead store. Like the other stores, they stock quite a bit from the west coast, but there was also a good import section with many from Belgium at very good prices. Here are some of the beers that caught my eye on my recent visit: Firestone, Kona Brew, Rogue, MacTarnahan's, De Dolle Oerbier Reserva, etc. As with other Lee's locations they did not allow breaking up of six-packs, but there were some loose singles available in one of the refrigerated cases. I had a nice chat with the beer manager, and he seems to know his beer.
Definitely worth a visit especially if you combine it with a trip to Barley's.

It's a massive store with a ton of wine/liquor, and only a small area devoted to beer, but still a pretty good selection here. Sizable Belgian and German options, but also some great American micros. I found a 2005 Alaskan Smoked Porter, and some weird things from Oregon/Utah/California that I've never heard of but were pretty decent (Black Flag Imperial Stout for example). I've seen better beer stores, but you're sure to find something great and/or unique here, especially if you're not from out west.

Visited during my sobering-up period during the Brewfest 08 across the street at Barley's on 05/10/08.
This place is enormous, like a club/warehouse store. Right inside the door, I saw their single malt scotch case. Awesome selection! Things I've never seen anywhere before.
The craft beer is in coolers all the way to the back. Good, solid selection that is essentially identical to any good BevMo in California (where I'm from). Rogue, Stone, Alesmith, Sierra Nevada, plenty of Belgians... solid selection.
I didn't buy anything because nothing jumped out at me as something I really needed to drink right then, but prices were in line.
I had no interaction with the staff at all, so I cannot comment on the service.

Huge. That's the first impression. Definitely a "kid in a candy store" feel when you walk in.
Beer is in the middle of the back of the store. There are 2 aisles of four shelves each that have singles. Quite impressive. The back wall has 28 fridges which hold mostly beer. Mostly packs of beer. I didn't find what I was looking for [not a huge Belgian selection], but I still found plenty to take home.
Most impressive looking beer bottle: a 9 litre bottle of St. Feuillien!! Wish I could have fit that in my luggage to take home!
Good service. Friendly. Definitely a place worth stopping into. You won't leave empty handed.

Stopped there last week during a visit to the area, looking for beer not available in Mass. Bought some Deschutes Inversion IPA and New Belgium Abbey Ale.
The atmosphere was like a warehouse. Selection was quite large, not the best I've seen but very good. Prices I thought were incredible, at least compared to where I live. Less taxes? I should move there; I'd save so much :)
Definitely a great place to stop for some stock for the hotel room, but not near the strip at all. If you're going that way, don't miss it.

Lee's on Sunset is my saviour. Having been stuck in Las Vegas for work for two months I have discovered that Vegas is not a really good beer destanation. Lee's has helped me out of those duldrums. They carry a very decent selection of regular craft brews but the bonus is the limited releases they carry especially if you are from the East Coast. On my first visit the problem was not finding something I wanted but deciding what to buy and keep my total check reasonable. I ended up getting a 4 pack of 2008 Bourbon County Stout though was torn with Mirror Mirror and barrel aged Old Rasputin being on the shelf. Service was pretty non-existant but it is to be expected in a warehouse store like this. Much better in terms of selection compared to the other Lee's I have been to. Definitely the place I will go to pick up beer while I am in the Vegas area.

Uncle Jimbo hit on everything that makes this store great. Hands down best beer store in the Valley, at great prices. I was very surprised and a little saddened to find that they carried Kellerbrau Bamberg Ranchbier, after I had already smuggled 2 biers from my latest Bamberg trip. This is a perfect example of the great selection in store. Plenty of Rochefort 8s and 10s, Unibroue, Stone, Rogue, Ommegang, Allegash, New Belgium, among others. Whatever the style, you're sure to find it. The only things missing that I noticed...Alesmith, Westmalle, Dogfish Head, Cantillon. The only thing I could want more of from Lee's is some more California IPAs, which is a small, small complaint. But afterall, this place is mostly know for their wine selection, which is awesome as well.

They have a great beer selection beer selection. I think most people have said about the main beers they have and whatnot. They also sell kegs and I'm just waiting to get a keg of Stone Arrogant Bastard. They have a BIG wine selection and likewise with the liquor selection. I have been into 6 Lee's and for what I was looking for I think it has the 2nd best selection (I think the only reason I prefered the other place is because it was brand new and everything was full in stock and I found 3 bottles of Vertical Epic 06). This is the biggest out of all the Lee's and has the biggest beer selection also. I was really impressed and the entrance sign is almost intimidating on how big it is. I would definatly say make a stop here if you can though.
