Barley’s Casino & Brewing Co. partners with Downtown Las Vegas’ Banger Brewing 

Banger Brewing to oversee all brewing operations at Barley’s, one of Southern Nevada’s oldest breweries


(Henderson, NV – March 23, 2017) – Barley’s Casino & Brewing Co. is doubling down on its 21-year brewing culture with a new partnership and renewed focus on quality, local craft beer. Banger Brewing has taken over all brewing operations inside Barley’s Casino & Brewing Co. Owned by Station Casinos, Barley’s will maintain its identity and operate separately from the Downtown Las Vegas-based Banger Brewing.

Brewers from Banger Brewing will create seasonal craft beers inside Barley’s 25-barrel brewhouse, one of the largest and most efficient brewing systems in Southern Nevada. As such, Barley’s will be churning out special releases, as well as reserving exclusive recipes and styles strictly for Station Casinos, beginning with May’s special Cinco de Mayo release.

With the Banger Brewery partnership comes a refreshed beer menu, which includes:

  • Blue Diamond - a light bodied, easy drinking golden blonde ale
  • Hefeweizen - brewed with wheat malt, this beer has aromas of banana and clove
  • Honey Blonde - high ABV blonde with rich body and subtle sweetness
  • Red Rock - red ale with light roasted malt flavor
  • High Hops -  IPA with a bitter finish and citrus peel characteristics
  • Bombshell - rich malty beer with dark malt flavors of molasses and chocolate
  • Black Knight - stout with a dark roasted flavor
  • Buzz! Buzz! - coffee infused stout 

To try the new brew recipes, Barley’s offers kegs and growlers to-go with 15.5-gallon and 5.5-gallon kegs priced at $90 and $35, respectively; 64-ounce growlers are $8.99; and refills are $4.99. Barley’s hosts a happy hour every day from 3-6 p.m. and 11 p.m.-6 a.m. with $3, 20-ounce beers. In addition, Barley’s brews will be available at the 2017 Great Vegas Festival of Beer in Downtown Las Vegas on April 7 and 8.
