Description: Located in the heart of the historic Old Town district, Boulder Dam...
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 and sandwiches. The brewpub also carries a great selection of 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.

Nice Beers Small Place

This is a nice little stop in Boulder City. The brewery has nice outside seating and usually a nice selection of its own beers. It's unpretentious and very casual and a good place to rest from the heat. I always enjoy the hand-crafted beers which have a very local flavor and change often.

I Love Boulder City and wherever I travel throughout the world as an airline pilot, I sample the "Local Brew." The Beer and food at Boulder Dam Brewing Company are outstanding.

While traveling we love great quality food instead of touristy-trap type restaurants which seem to be around areas with national landmarks. Boulder Dam Brewing fit the bill nicely. After getting much sun outside the Turbine Turkey (our server Mike suggested wrap style instead of bread) and Powder Monkey Pilsner sure hit the spot! The onion rings are incredibly tasty too....

Located in the heart of historic downtown Boulder City, Nevada, this is an excellent brew pub to try if you're a brew pub coniseuer. Great to go have a happy hour beer and watch sports on their screens.

After a great hike along Lake Mead, this is a perfect stop for a bite to eat and a phenomenal beer. Great selection of local made beer and they also have nighttime music in summer months.

Thanks for stopping by our little brewpub! I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves. Don't just pop out in the summer, though. We host local, regional and national musicians every Friday and Saturday (and some Thursdays) all year. Hopefully, we'll see you again soon! Cheers, Todd Cook Bru Guru More

The waiter was great! The beer was cold and the food was good. The waiter didn't need to write down the order and even put in our app before I even asked because he heard me tell my husband I was getting the pretzel. Great patio atmosphere.

Looking for places to eat that caters to family needs (picky eaters) is a challenge. This place has a good menu for kids and an even better menu for grown-ups ;-) Beer, did I mention the beer? Tried it and it was very good too.

We heard the music from our hotel, so we wandered over to listen. We enjoyed the live band "Out of the Desert" and my husband said the Pub's chocolate stout was excellent.

After visiting the Hoover Dam on a hot July day, I needed to quench my thirst. I found the Boulder Dam Brewing Company and loved it. I would recommend this place to anyone passing through Bolder City 👍🏻
