Brewery Review: Hop Nuts Brewing
Hop Nuts has some fantastic beer, I was a little turnt up after leaving which is never a bad thing. I visited their Tivoli Village location but Hop Nuts does have a second location in the arts district in downtown Las Vegas. My biggest criticism of this place honestly is the size, the inside is slightly bigger than a hole in the wall but they do make up for that with a large outside seating area. Both of the bartenders were awesome and all of the patrons looked like they were having a good time while they were there. I would definitely recommend stopping by and grabbing a cold one while you're in the area. I am definitely adding Hop Nuts to my roster of breweries that I will be returning to.
Fantastic beer, I had a flight and a 12oz Golden Knight (A+++ in my book). Their flights consist of 5 5oz pours. My flight:
1. Stay the F*** Home: A-, solid beer, 8.6% though so you'll be leaning after two of these, or maybe that's just me
2. The Golden Knight: my choice to refill, this was my favorite beer they had
3. Derby Beer: This was their Kentucky Common Ale. I had never heard of Kentucky Common Ale before so I decided to give it a shot and it was decent. Probably wouldn't order it again based off of other offerings they have that are much better
4. Quarantine Juice Hazy Dipa: This beer was good and reminded me a lot of the Stay the F*** Home. I'm not the biggest fan of double IPAs but this one was very drinkable.
5. Japanese Lager: Super light, reminded me a lot of Coors Light, and I don't like Coors Light.
Did not have food offerings while I was there. It looked like they do have a limited menu and just might not have reopened that aspect of the tasting room yet following COVID-19.
A little small, about 12-15 bar stools and a half dozen tables on the inside, they did have a nice sized patio seating area though but it was like 103 degrees when I was there and wasn't in the mood to melt to the chairs. In more reasonable temperatures the patio looks like it would be a good time.
Their Tivoli Village location does not have its own parking lot but there is plenty of parking inside the parking garage within Tivoli Village.
Right on the corner of Alta and Rampart inside Tivoli Village in Summerlin, super easy to get to from all parts of Vegas.
