This is a very cool bar to have in town. Even the best of San Francisco bars do not come close. Copia almost made it with a 500 wines-by-glass list. That was the best of it.
A weekly look at the draft selection in beer-friendly bars across the country.
Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer vacation season, so we turn our attention to one of America’s largest tourist destinations, Las Vegas, Nev. Sin City has every indulgence one could ever hope for, and great beer is no exception. With a nice tap selection and an absurdly hefty bottled beer list featuring over 900 possibilities, one of Vegas’s best places to find rare brews is the Freakin’ Frog.
Located across from UNLV’s campus, Freakin’ Frog may sound more aimed at college kids than tourists, but the bar is tailored to anyone looking for unique beers — it boasts 900 bottles, 600 whiskeys, 300 tequilas and 15 taps. With an unassuming location in a strip mall a couple miles east of that “other” Strip, the Frog is a perfect alternative to the madness people associate with this desert city. “We’re not a college bar,” says owner Adam Carmer. “We’re an intellectual, alcoholic coffee shop. We get people from all over the city, all over the country, all over the world.”
Check out the Freakin’ Frog’s draft list after the jump.
