Stopped in on our way to willow beach and had some great Brews! Got to listen to an awesome band while sitting outside. Good place to stop in and take a breather before any outdoor activity.

Thanks for stopping by our little brewpub! I'm glad you liked the beers and entertainment. Every weekend we feature local, regional, national and international musicians... very fun! Boulder City is definitely the place for outdoor fun in southern Nevada! Zip lines, skydiving, mountain biking, hiking, rafting, canoeing, etc. Stop in again next time you're out adventuring!

We were seated inside, not much too look at but no big deal. Waited about 10 minutes until the bartender came around and asked us if wanted something to drink as out server was very busy.

Thanks for stopping by our little brewpub. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the one beer you tried. The hefeweizen, which we tapped out of on Friday, is very popular, and we do our best to have it available all the time. Mother Nature, though, can't be rushed, and we have short lags between batches on occasion. All that... More

We recently stopped in for a bite to o eat, and discovered some delicious brews. We dined on the patio. Our service was very good as well as the food, but you need to try their brews. The Hell's Hole Hefeweizen and the Aggregate Amber were absolutely delicious.

Thanks for stopping by our little brewery! I'm glad you loved the food, brews and service. I'm particularly glad you dug the hefeweizen as it's my favorite of our signature brews.

This is the local brewpub and though not outstanding, it is good. There is limited seating inside and the inside is somewhat stark and barebones. There is plenty of outdoor seating in a nice, partially sunken, patio with nice vegetation and boulders around it plus some equipment froom the dam construction.

Thanks for stopping by our little brewpub! I'm glad you enjoyed the food and beer. We work tirelessly to put out the best product possible. With regards to shading in the beer garden, I agree 100%.

We stopped into BC on a Sunday for some "small town fun", and decided to end our afternoon here. We decided to sit outside in the patio due to the great weather in Southern Nevada right now...

Description
Located in the heart of the historic Old Town district, Boulder Dam Brewing Co. is Boulder City's first and only brewpub. Located across the street from the Boulder Dam Hotel, the brewery is less than five miles from Lake Mead and less than eight from Hoover Dam. Practically a museum in itself, the brewery features decor and fixtures from the 1930's, silent films made during the construction of the dam, actual pieces of equipment used during the construction and a myriad of art depicting Boulder City's beginnings and brewing from the period.

A destination for locals and visitors alike, Boulder Dam Brewing serves up six original pub-brewed beers at a time. The 40-barrel system allows the flexibility to offer many unique styles, from refreshing Pilsners to hoppy Pale Ales to creamy Stouts. Food ranges from traditional pub fare to salads, burgers, sandwiches and more, all prepared from scratch. The brewpub also carries a great selection of craft beer from around the world, wines and non-alcoholic beverages. With plenty of seating inside, and a beautiful beer garden outside, it's the perfect place to stop by for a pint and a bite.
