The burgeoning Las Vegas craft-beer scene hasn’t been defined by a single style or brewery. It’s better characterized by the consistent creativity of its brewers and brands, and lately, one beermaker has helped expand that local landscape.
PT’s Brewing Company launched just over a year ago, and due to the size and strength of parent company Golden Entertainment—PT’s just opened its 54th Nevada tavern in southwest Las Vegas—it has quickly become one of the most widely distributed craft brands in the region. Five of its most popular brews are now available at PT’s Pubs, PT’s Gold, PT’s Ranch, Sierra Gold, Sean Patrick’s and SG Bar.
“Craft beer is a growing business in the Las Vegas Valley, and our PT’s Brewing Company has quickly made its own mark as a compelling new entry into this market,” says Brent Edlund, director of tavern operations for PT’s Entertainment Group. “Our growing operations offer the brewery the perfect platform to introduce our handcrafted beers to a new audience.”
PT’s award-winning brewmaster, Dave Otto, says the company’s beers are now competing well against some of the country’s longtime favorites within PT’s taverns. “We have faith that our beers will become strong players in the market.”
The brewery on North Tenaya Way can produce 6,000 kegs a year and creates seven primary beers, along with rotating varieties. The five brews offered at the taverns: American lager Horizon Light, Sean Patrick’s Irish Red, Boulder Stout, Hualapai IPA and Golden Hefeweizen. “We will continue to produce new and exciting handcrafted beers, along with these excellent selections that have become popular choices at the brewery,” Otto says.
