A beer-themed ode to the Atomic Age in Las Vegas debuts with a roster of homegrown brews. Able Baker Brewing Co. brings a downtown micro-brewery and taproom filled with atomic orange flooring and Nevada gear decking the walls of the Gateway District space.
The 7,504-square-foot venue replaces a long vacant furniture store, a few steps from Wyoming Avenue and three blocks to the west of Dino’s Lounge. The space features 40 seats along with a 600-square-foot patio in the front.
Customers can sit at the bar, at the drink rails facing the two large garage doors, or at one of the indoor picnic tables.
Some of Able Baker’s beers on tap at the 15-Bbl brewhouse include Atomic Duck IPA, Honey Dip Stout, Cherry Berry Bang Bang, Double Dead Duck IPA, Test Site Saison, 5-Pepper Porter, and Chris Kael Impaled ale.
Plans call for 33 beers on tap.
Able Baker also plans to brew beers from Vegas Golden Knight Ryan Reaves’ 7Five Brewing Co. The Able Brewing/7Five collaboration brings Training Day Golden Ale, as well as a lager, IPA, and seasonal imperial stout.
The brewery takes its name from two atomic bombs, dubbed Able and Baker, detonated at the Nevada Test Site. Legend has it that a duck was the only animal to survive those atomic blasts, now living on as the lovable mascot for the brewery.
Able Baker Brewing Co., 1510 Main St., 702-907-1676. Open from noon to midnight daily.
