The Pub at Monte Carlo offers a cornucopia of beer with locals’ deals

Beer me: You want rice ale? No problem.
After the Pub at Monte Carlo stopped brewing its own beers, there was very little to distinguish it from other Strip sports bars, and hence, less reason to visit. Under the tutelage of GM Brian Ingram that’s changed. The Pub’s newly revamped beer menu—including 136 taps that rival the selection at Yard House—makes it a worthwhile destination for beer geeks and novices.
At first glance, the beer list looks somewhat expensive. Rarities such as Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale ($15)—the endlessly drinkable, Japanese-brewed, Belgian-style ale, available on tap—and Redhook’s 8-4-1 Expedition Ale ($25)—an immensely palatable combination of honey, smoke and brown sugar that disguises a 9.5 percent ABV—aren’t exactly bargain basement deals. But the Pub is actively reaching out to locals with 50 percent off its extensive beer selection on Sundays. This means that 3L of Chimay Blue ($400) you’ve been eyeing can be yours for a paltry $200. Just don’t ask for a beer bong alongside that beauty.
In a similar vein, the Pub is taking great care to expose the throngs of tourists to our burgeoning local beer scene. Local brews, which include offerings from Joseph James, Sin City and Tenaya Creek breweries, are specifically highlighted on the menus, with prices kept intentionally low to entice people to sample them. We’re glad the Pub has returned as a home for beer drinkers and brewers. We’ll be there on Sundays, even if there’s no football to watch.
The Pub at Monte Carlo features pub fare, live music and an extensive menu of beers on tap. A new menu includes burgers, fresh chicken quesadillas and grilled fish. And for the competitive eater, there's the Pub Challenge, featuring an eight-pound feast for one that must be consumed in 45 minutes to get it for free and to be honored with a T-shirt.
The pub also features more than 35 TV screens to catch your favorite sporting event.
Happy hour is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, featuring $1 wings and $1 sliders and buy-one-get-one well drinks and selected domestic drafts.
If you're a competitive eater, the Pub has a food challenge for you: an eight-pound burger that must be eaten in 30 minutes. Tame the beast and win a free T-shirt. Fail and pay $50.
