Goose Island Pub to open in Las Vegas

The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada is the next home of Goose Island. While the spot doesn’t tout any brewing equipment, the setup will include a full restaurant, and bottles of the highly sought after Bourbon County Brand Stout. This is one of the first new pub builds after the Anheuser-Busch acquisition years ago.

“We’ve been pouring Goose Island beers at our venues for quite some time now,” said Jon Newton, vice president of food and beverage at Hard Rock Hotel. “We are honored to welcome the pub to the Hard Rock Hotel family and are excited to serve the best beers in town.”

In addition to the beer, the food lineup will look a bit like this:

  • Cast Iron Chicago Pizza Dip– marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, basil and giardiniera; served with garlic crust on the side.
  • South Side Deli– generous amount of corned beef, cole slaw, tomato and mustard made with Goose Honker’s Ale; served on rye bread with house potato chips on the side.
  • Shrimp Po Boy– fried shrimp, iceberg lettuce, tomato and creole mayo made with Goose 312 Wheat Ale; served on a hoagie roll with house potato chips on the side.

  1. Calling Goose Island “the best beers in town” is quite a stretch. Now that they are owned by AB, they’re off my list. With such good local craft beers in Las Vegas, we can do MUCH better…but I get his point.

  2. There are far better places for beer than this (Tag at The Linq, Public House at the Venetian, Todd English P.U.B. at Crystals, Pub at Monte Carlo [although that is about to close as part of the transformation of the resort into a new concept]). AB-InBev has got a spot at Paris called Beer Park by Budweiser and everything they offer is either an AB-InBev product or distributed by the local AB-InBev distributor. When I go to Vegas, I try to support the local breweries as much as possible, and these days you can find some of the locals on tap at casino bars. I usually stay on Fremont Street and the Downtown Las Vegas area has multiple craft breweries in the area. Banger Brewing, Chicago Brewing (Although they do not brew at their location inside of the Four Queens, but they have a sister location that brews their beers.), 777 Brewpub (Main Street Station Hotel, Casino & Brewery.), Hop Nuts Brewing, and Tenaya Creek Brewing (They relocated to just north of Downtown last year after outgrowing their previous space.).
