Sin City Brewing’s exclusive ale for Aria is complex but mellow

Sin City Brewing recently brewed a beer exclusively for Aria.

While we’re seeing more and more local brews popping up on Boulevard bar taps, Aria just took its beer program to a whole new level. The resort just started tapping Sin City Brewing’s Extra Pale Ale, a local beer brewed exclusively for the CityCenter property. This follows Baltimore-based Stillwater Artisanal Ales’ own edition for Aria earlier this year.

SCB Master Brewer Rich Johnson aimed to craft a brew that appeals to both beer beginners and seasoned snobs with the Extra Pale Ale—something hoppy, yet still easy and enjoyable to drink. And after a quick tasting at Aria’s Sports Bar last week, I’d say he definitely achieved his goal. The beer’s full-bodied hoppiness, mellow malt and subtle sweetness execute a flavorful punch, while not overwhelming with the earthy bitterness common with pales and extra pales. And with a smooth finish—honestly, I was hoping for more bite—and 5.5 percent ABV, it’s definitely sessionable, perfect for a day spent inside watching pigskin or soaking up sun at the pool. I’ll take another, please.
